Review: Burger King - Chicken Fries

Burger King's Chicken Fries feature formed chicken "fries" covered in seasoned breading and deep-fried.

I picked up an order of 9 pieces for $3.49.

Basically fry-shaped, elongated chicken nuggets, what sets Chicken Fries apart is the seasoned breading. It was crispy with some slightly herby notes and just a little bit of a spicy kick. There's enough flavor that you don't really need to dip them in sauce.

Because of the fry shape, there's less chicken in each bite when compared to a chicken nugget or strip, which means there's not much in the way of chicken flavor. It's made of ground white meat chicken, which is moist with a smooth, slightly resilient texture.

I really liked the design of the box, which eschews the typical Burger King branding for a simple cartoon chicken face complete with a red crown. Unlike the chain's Frypod, the box lacks any vents. You might want to open it up a little if you're getting them for take out so that the breading doesn't turn soggy.

Overall, Burger King's Chicken Fries were just okay for me. There's a nice enough flavor to the breading, but it lacks a bit in the chicken portion. I found myself wishing they were filled with mozzarella or zucchini.
