McDonald’s Southern Style Chicken Sandwich

The McDonald’s Southern Style Chicken Sandwich is cute. I’m not talking Hello Kitty cute, I’m talking women being courteous and calling a dude’s wiener “cute,” instead of the term they’re thinking in their head, which is “small.” Just like those courteous women do when they get a glimpse of the “cute cock,” I giggled a little when I saw the latest chicken sandwich from McDonald’s. The sandwich is 3.5 inches in diameter and not very tall. When I first saw it, I thought to myself, “God, I could stick that whole thing in my mouth with ease.”

For years, I’ve been telling women while crying that it is not the size of the boat that matters, it is the motion of the ocean, but the McDonald’s Southern Style Chicken Sandwich made me realize that I am wrong. The sandwich consisted of seasoned, lightly breaded all white meat chicken with two pickles in between a buttery tasting bun. The chicken was surprisingly juicy the first time I had it, but wasn’t when I had another a few days later. It seemed like there was very little seasoning on the chicken, making its flavor quite bland and I thought overall it really tasted like a mediocre McChicken sandwich. I didn’t even notice the buttery bun, but the pickles did help with the flavor, although you can’t get a pickle in every bite. So maybe having a bigger pickle would help a lot.

The idea of the McDonald’s Southern Style Chicken Sandwich apparently comes from a Chick-Fil-A sandwich, which also has breaded chicken, a buttery bun, and pickles. Since I’m thousands of miles away from a Chick-Fil-A, I can’t make a comparison, but it does sound like McDonald’s ripped off the idea. But is copying something so bad? Without copying others I wouldn’t have a college degree, high school diploma, passed my SRAs, and gotten through playground pattycake competitions. But what is bad is doing a poor job of copying, which seems like what McDonald’s did with the Southern Style Chicken Sandwich.

  1. marvo, extra pickles is key everywhere you go. i always ask for them wherever i get a sandwich. mcdonald’s was very nice and actually filled a little plastic sauce cup with pickles for me. dairy queen will wrap them in a piece of foil usually. their chicken sandwich isn’t bad, by the way.

  2. I was VERY disappointed in this. Having lived in Vegas for 8 years and not having chick-fil-a for that many years, i was really excited. Like most women, i was left wanting something better! DAMN you McDonald’s…you are nothing but a big tease!!!!

  3. Cute burger, my heinie. I’ve squeezed out cuter things between my lower cheeks. But it is a good looking bun.

  4. I just can’t get down with McDonald’s sandwiches. They need to stop trying. Give me some chicken nuggets and call it a day.

  5. @ Angel H
    Umm, what kind of squirts?

    I won’t touch that thing. Usually I’m not to race sensitive, but for fucks sake they had might as well had said, “We’ll also include the Mc Watermelon in the super sized version!”.

  6. Luckinflux:

    Oh, y’know the kind…”when you’re walking down the hall and you feel something fall”…

    That kind.

  7. I’ve gotten like 10 coupons for trying these for free. Amazon ships them with each order. Not bad, but tiny and way too expensive.

  8. This sandwich is terrible. They cook it in the same fryer oil as the Filet-O-Fish sandwich, so it tastes like fish. Very dissapointing. And they call it a “Southern Style Chicken Sandwich”, I don’t think so. I lived in the South for 20years and never had a chicken sandwich this bad. What a sorry attempt to immitate a popular Chick-Fil-A item.

  9. I too am on the Chick-Fil-A bandwagon! I would call them my favorite fast food restaurant, but their biscuits aren’t as good as Bojangles. I moved to CA last year from NC but I make sure to get a chicken sandwich every time I go back!

  10. Few reasons why Chick-Fil-A sucks:

    1. Just typing their name is obnoxious.
    2. Closed on Sundays.
    3. A bit expensive.

    I acknowledge that they make a damn good chicken sandwich, though.
