Burger King® launched the Ch'King and Spicy Ch'King Sandwiches on June 3rd. After two years in the making, they believe they've found the secrets to chicken sandwich perfection. This includes a "hand-breading" method, similar to the "flame-broiling" success of the Whopper.
Burger King describes the sandwich as a "freshly hand-breaded chicken filet" that's "crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside," and "served on a toasty, potato bun with crisp pickles and a savory signature sauce." The spicy version will feature "tastebud-tingling glaze." Both sandwiches can be made "Deluxe" by adding fresh lettuce and tomato.
The Ch'King Sandwich has received a lot of praise and accolades by self-professed chicken sandwich experts. Of the Spicy Ch'King Sandwich, Emily Heil from Washington Post explains:
"The thick serving of bird itself was juicy and briny, and the layer of crinkle-cut pickle — de rigueur in the current craze for “Southern style” sandos — offered a familiar, but still pleasant, pucker."
How will the Ch'King Sandwich stack up over time against these other 26 Fast Food Fried Chicken Sandwiches?
PRIDE MONTH LGBTQ SUPPORT
In addition to Ch'King Sandwich excitement, Burger King announced their support for the LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month. From their Twitter account on June 3rd:
Burger King is donating $0.40 for every chicken sandwich sold during June / Pride Month, up to $250,000 (or 625,000 sandwiches) to The Human Rights Campaign.
In an email to Gay Dining, spokesperson for Burger King, Adrianna Lauricella, reaffirmed BK's commitment to highlight the importance of supporting the LGBTQ+ conversation and community. Sharing Burger King's official statement:
"This is a community we love dearly and have proudly supported over the years, so we couldn’t miss an opportunity to take action and help shine a light on the important conversation happening."
