"SONIC customers enjoy our premium chicken sandwiches, but sometimes they crave different flavors, like the new Honey Mustard & Swiss Chicken Sandwich," said James O'Reilly, chief marketing officer for Sonic. "They enjoy trying unique flavor pairings, and we will continue to build on our diverse menu while offering the quality you might associate with a sit down restaurant in a quick service format."
Starting today, the Honey Mustard & Swiss Chicken Sandwiches are available with 100 percent all-white meat grilled or crispy chicken breast on a soft, whole grain ciabatta bun (offering 10 grams of whole grain) with fresh lettuce, a hand sliced tomato, SONIC's tangy honey mustard sauce and mild Swiss cheese to pack even more flavor. The Asiago Caesar Chicken Club Sandwich is also available grilled or crispy on a whole grain ciabatta bun but features the distinct taste of Asiago cheese, savory bacon and SONIC's signature Caesar dressing.
In addition, for a limited time SONIC is bringing back its beloved Sweet Potato Tots. SONIC'S Sweet Potato Tots are the perfect marriage of sweet and salty flavors rounded out with the taste of crispy sweet potatoes. Pair these perfectly with either premium chicken sandwiches and a Route 44® Cherry Limeade for one tasty combo.
"We worked with many different ingredients to develop a lineup of premium chicken sandwiches that appeal to the varying tastes of our customers," said Chef Claes Petersson, vice president of product innovation at Sonic. "The tangy and savory flavors of the new Honey Mustard & Swiss Chicken Sandwich perfectly complement our premium 100 percent all-white meat chicken breast in a way our customers will love. Because we are all about customization at SONIC, I like to add crispy bacon to take it to another level."
Both the Honey Mustard & Swiss Chicken Sandwich and the Asiago Caesar Chicken Club Sandwich are a perfect option for lunch or dinner, and just like the entire SONIC menu, are made to order and available all day, but only for a limited time.
