I don’t eat at McDonalds too much these days, but I was tempted when these “Southern” Chicken biscuits came out because I love Chik-Fil-A’s chicken biscuits, however, their restaurants are too far away and are closed on sunday – the day when I’m most likely to want this.
I hit the drive through and scored this biscuit and a hash brown for 2.98. a fair price for a breakfast if you ask me. Despite being a little too greasy, it was good. McD’s biscuits themselves are pretty tasty, so no qualms there. The chicken was fairly generic, however it was at least a real piece of breast meat and not reformed chunks like a McChicken. I did not find the breading terribly “Southern”, neither was it as good as Chik-Fil-A’s.
One side note – halfway through the biscuit, I ate my hash brown. When I resumed eating the biscuit, it tasted weird. I’ve only experienced similar taste clashes with taco bell (steak or chicken before ground beef makes the ground beef taste gross) and I’d assume that a company that engineers all their flavors like McDonalds would make sure this wouldn’t happen.. So I don’t know whats up there.. Maybe I’m just over sensitive, but I’d save the potatoes for post biscuit if I were to do it all over again.
All in all, a reasonable sandwich. Get Chik-Fil-A instead if you have the option, but if not, this will do.
Southern Chicken Biscuit – 7/10 stars
