Review: Wendy's - Smoky Honey Mustard Flatbread Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Wendy's Smoky Honey Mustard Flatbread Grilled Chicken Sandwich features sliced grilled chicken breast, a spring mix of leafy greens, tomatoes, and smoky honey mustard sauce, wrapped in a five-grain toasted flatbread.

It costs slightly less than the Asiago Ranch at $3.69.

The only differences between the Smoky Honey Mustard version and the Asiago Ranch flatbread sandwich are the different sauces and that the Asiago Ranch has bacon and cheese in it.

The Smoky Honey Mustard is a pleasant lightly flavored sauce that tastes like a blend of honey mustard and a tangy barbecue sauce. I quite like the flavor; it's not too heavy and is well-balanced i.e. not "too" anything.

The flatbread was nutty with crunchy grains and soft and chewy otherwise. It "feels" pretty healthy compared to your typical hamburger bun. The crunchiness adds a nice texture.

On this occasion, my chicken was a little dry, but more plentiful than when I had the Asiago Ranch version.

The greens were a fresh, quality mix with zero filler iceberg lettuce to be found. The taste of the various leafy greens were subtle but noticeable.

It all comes together rather well and, overall, Wendy's Smoky Honey Mustard Flatbread Grilled Chicken Sandwich is a really good sandwich and, while I love bacon, I prefer the better-balanced Smoky Honey Flatbread over the stronger flavors of the Asiago Ranch.

I can see Wendy's adding Flatbreads as a permanent platform, especially as fast food companies push to provide healthier (or at least, seemingly healthy) options that their customers will actually want to buy.

  5. That's actually on the low side. Sandwiches tend to be made with cured meats which are high in salt. If you look at the nutrition any Panera or Subway sandwich, you'll likely find higher sodium counts. Basically, most sandwiches will have more salt than you think.

  9. I did not care for the flatbread. Could only eat half. I ordered without sauce since I never get sauce in anything. So for the chicken and lettuce it was good.
