January 20, 2016 // Franchising.com // IRVINE, CA – The Habit Restaurants, Inc. (Nasdaq: HABT), an Irvine-based restaurant company best known for its award-winning Charburgers, has announced the introduction of a fresh, flavorful Chicken Caprese Sandwich. The limited time special is available now through March 16 at participating Habit Burger Grill locations and is priced at $6.95 (image attached).
The new Chicken Caprese Sandwich starts with a tender, hand-filleted chicken breast that is seasoned and perfectly chargrilled, then topped with thick slices of fresh mozzarella, ripe sliced tomatoes and crisp lettuce. It’s served on grilled garlic-herb sourdough bread with a flavorful basil pesto aioli spread.
“We get so many compliments on our chicken sandwiches, it seemed making one with popular Italian ingredients like fresh mozzarella and zesty pesto would be a hit with our guests,” said chef Adam Baird, The Habit’s vice president of food & beverage and creator of the new limited time special. “At this time of the year, we find people like the option of something lighter with fresh, herbaceous flavors. This sandwich delivers just that with layers of tastes and textures.”
