R​eview: I tried McDonald's new special edition Rustic chicken sandwich

Is it good?

6w ago

H​aving recently started seeing lots of propaganda of McDonald's new "Rustic chicken" sandwich around the city, I thought I had to try one out, and so I'm here tonight to tell you my thoughts.

What is Rustic chicken?

There are two different types of Rustic chicken, the original and the "Mustard and honey" flavour, I have gone for the original. The original is made up of bread, a chicken patty, tomato, lettuce, cheese and mayonnaise and barbecue sauce, while the Mustard and honey, as the name suggests, replaces the sauces with mustard and honey.

W​as is it good?

I think so, the ingredients worked nicely together, and I also liked the choice of bread. Now I want to focus on what I think is the main Rustic chicken ingredient, you guessed it, the chicken patty. McDonald's says on their Portuguese website that the chicken should be tender, juicy, and crispy, but what did I think? Well, I think the chicken tasted good, but it could have been both juicier and more tender, that would have worked perfectly in my opinion. Not that I think it was bad, but it could've had more flavour and been easier to chew. And in my opinion, if you want fast-food chicken, KFC does a much better job.

H​ow can I try one?

F​rom what I know, Rustic chicken is only available in Portugal, but I may be wrong, as McDonald's didn't say anything about that on their Portuguese website. Based on past "special edition" burgers we've had, I also didn't know of them being available elsewhere (but that meant just Spain most of the times), but please let me know if it's available where you live.

T​hat was it, thank you for reading!

  • That sandwich doesn't look bad. McDonald's products outside the US look better than the cardboard offering in the US 😅.

  • Great review! I haven't tried that one yet, but if I do I think it'll be with mustard and onion sauce 😋

  • I doubt we have it here.

    It looks rather sad, which is typical for McDonald's. I must admit it sounds nice.
