Review: Burger King - Chicken Big King

Burger King's Chicken Big King is the chicken version of the Big King. It comes with fried and breaded chicken patties rather than ground beef patties as well as American cheese, lettuce, pickles, onions, King sauce, and the club-sandwich-style sesame bun.

I bought two for $5 with their Mix-n-Match deal. They're $3.99 each otherwise.

The chicken patties didn't have a whole lot of flavor to them, but I liked them better than the beef patties because they fit the buns better so that I had at least some chicken in every bite. They're mostly seasoned with salt, but had a nice, crispy breading.

The lettuce was pretty fresh and added a welcome crispness. The couple strands of onions weren't really noticeable, while the pickles offer a sour bite and decent crunch.

The King sauce came off overly tangy and I think I would have preferred standard mayo over it.

The lone slice of cheese added just a touch of flavor and creaminess that was almost missed.

Overall, Burger King's Chicken Big King didn't feel as bready as the beef version, which was a definite plus. I think the ingredients work a bit better with beef, but I liked the chicken better simply because the patties were thicker and wider. The third bun still feels unnecessary and, while the various components didn't quite gel for me, the Chicken Big King turned out pretty decent.
