Review: Burger King - Italian Royal Crispy Chicken Sandwich

Burger King's Italian Royal Crispy Chicken sandwich features a crispy-fried chicken breast filet served with marinara sauce and melted mozzarella cheese on a toasted potato bun.

The sandwich goes for $6.09 near me but I used a coupon and got it as part of a combo with small fries and a drink for $7.

Out of the wrapper, I was struck by how waxy the cheese appeared to be. While it had a decent thickness, it didn't really ooze or stretch. It added a bit of richness and creaminess to the sandwich.

The chicken was moist inside but not juicy (and paled in comparison to the previous Ch'King, which was generally larger and better quality in terms of flavor and texture). The breading was lightly crispy where it wasn't covered in sauce or cheese but was soggy otherwise. As is typical, it was just lightly seasoned.

The marinara sauce came on both the top and bottom bun and offered a slightly seasoned, sweet and tangy stewed tomato flavor. It was fairly thick and clung to the sandwich well without dripping much (if at all). It provided the bulk of the flavor for the sandwich.

The potato bun offered a slightly richer flavor versus your regular fast food burger bun and a moister, softer texture.

Overall, Burger King's Italian Royal Crispy Chicken was nice enough and comparable to the chain's previous Italian chicken sandwiches although it could use a tad more cheese or have some parmesan sprinkled in for an additional flavor note. Compared to Wendy's current chicken parmesan-type sandwich, it's more flavorful due to the extra sauce but the Wendy's version offers better textures and better cheese.
