Hand-Breaded Chicken Sandwiches

Carl’s Jr. Has a New Bacon Swiss Hand-Breaded Chicken Sandwich

— May 24, 2021 — Lifestyle
With chicken sandwiches still in high demand, Carl's Jr. has expanded its Hand-Breaded Chicken Sandwich menu with the launch of the new Bacon Swiss Hand-Breaded Chicken Sandwich.

The new Bacon Swiss Hand-Breaded Chicken Sandwich is a tasty take on a traditional chicken sandwich. The new version starts with an all-white-meat chicken fillet that's been marinated in 13 signature seasonings, dipped in buttermilk, hand-breaded, and fried to a crispy golden-brown hue. The filet is then paired with bacon strips, Swiss cheese, green leaf lettuce, mayonnaise, and tomato, all served on a taosted potato bun.

If you're wondering what other kinds of chicken sandwiches Carl's Jr. is serving up, the chain's Hand-Breaded Chicken Sandwich lineup also includes tasty offerings like the Hand-Breaded Chicken and Waffle Sandwich and the classic Hand-Breaded Chicken Sandwich.
