Review: KFC - Crispy Colonel Sandwich

KFC's Crispy Colonel Sandwich features an Extra Crispy fried chicken filet, pickles, and mayo on a plain toasted bun.

It's available for $3.99 or in a $5 Fill Up meal along with a side, cookie, and fountain drink.

While the sandwich is about the same width as a McDonald's hamburger (and with a similarly plain basic bun), the Extra Crispy filet was very thick and super meaty. It was the perfect size to cover the bun. If my particular filet was indicative of the way the chicken is generally cut for the sandwich, it's really nice. Unfortunately, my particular filet was bone dry (although to be fair, I went close to closing).

The breading was flaky and crispy in texture with a mild seasoning. I liked the slight heat of the discontinued Zinger better but it seems they went with a more neutral profile as you can get the filet sauced with Nashville Hot, Georgia Gold, or Smoky Mountain BBQ flavors.

The pickles were lightly crunch and relatively mild and the mayo threw in a nice creamy accent.

Overall, KFC's Crispy Colonel Sandwich would have been pretty enjoyable overall if the chicken weren't so dry (which was probably an anomaly). It doesn't bring anything new to the chicken sandwich table but it decently fills a hole on the KFC menu and is nicely proportioned to showcase the chicken.
