OKLAHOMA CITY, Nov. 2, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- With the growing popularity of chicken among diners, SONIC has introduced two new Premium Chicken Sandwiches to give guests the most bang for their cluck: a new, limited time Asiago Caesar Chicken Sandwich and an improved Classic Chicken Sandwich, both available in either grilled or crispy.
Both items represent a fresh flavor revival for SONIC's chicken sandwich offerings, incorporating premium and fresh ingredients that give customers a variety of flavors. Their debut on the SONIC menu comes in advance of National Sandwich Day on Saturday, Nov. 3.
"Chicken sandwiches are sometimes overlooked on menus and we wanted our new Premium Chicken Sandwiches to wake up the standard fare with a fresh flavor experience," said Chef Clas Petersson, vice president of research & development for SONIC. "The team has been perfecting the chicken sandwich for nearly a year and we are excited to introduce the new Asiago Caesar and Classic Chicken sandwiches that promise to make the chicken sandwich a SONIC menu destination."
SONIC's New Premium Chicken Sandwiches
- The Asiago Caesar Chicken Sandwich takes your choice of grilled or crispy all-white meat chicken breast, tops it with sliced Asiago cheese, thick, hand-sliced tomatoes on SONIC's warm ciabatta bun with 10 grams of whole grain. The signature Caesar dressing on the sandwich is based on an aioli that Chef Petersson has been developing for the last 18 years.
- The Classic Chicken Sandwich takes the same grilled or crispy all-white meat chicken breast, tops it with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, light mayo and serves it up between a warm whole-grain ciabatta bun. The grilled Classic Chicken provides customers a delicious entrée with only 450 calories.
