MILFORD, Conn. // PRNewswire // -- The SUBWAY® restaurant chain, which is known for delicious choices that are also healthier for you, is proud to introduce the new Orchard Chicken Salad Sandwich, available for a limited time only.
This new sandwich creation combines tender diced chicken breast with chunks of apple, raisins and cranberries tossed in light creamy mayonnaise and served with lettuce and tomato on your choice of fresh baked bread.
"Adding crisp apples, with sweet cranberries and raisins, make a great, refreshing light sandwich," said SUBWAY® Executive Chef Chris Martone. "These fruits, with the addition of fresh vegetables, create a great sandwich or salad that is the perfect start to the summer season."
The Orchard Chicken Salad sandwich, available now through July 4, is a great choice for those looking for full flavor, excellent value and healthier options. At just 8 grams of fat, a 6 inch Orchard Chicken Salad sandwich is a SUBWAY FRESH FIT™ selection. As a footlong sandwich, it takes its place on the restaurant's famous $5 Footlong value menu.
"At Subway, we are always looking to create sandwiches and salads that not only surpass the high standards for flavor that our customers have come to expect, but are also low-fat options for a balanced diet," said SUBWAY® Corporate Dietitian Lanette Kovachi. "The Orchard Chicken Salad sandwich not only fits in perfectly in our selection of FRESH FIT meals, which include a low-fat sandwich with healthier-for-you sides, but also represent a distinct new taste that is packed with flavor."
Joining the Orchard Chicken Salad in the Limited Time Offer spotlight is the Chicken Bacon Ranch and the Jared-favorite, Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sandwiches.
Headquartered in Milford, Connecticut, and with regional offices in Amsterdam, Beirut, Brisbane, Miami and Singapore, the SUBWAY® chain was co-founded by Fred DeLuca and Dr. Peter Buck in 1965.
