Golden chicken sandwich at the Habit

by foodhoe on November 6, 2016

I have to tell you about a fabulous sandwich that was recently introduced at the Habit Burger, which was recently rated by Consumer Reports as having the best tasting fast food burger in America based on a reader survey.  Now that is high praise and it’s no secret that they are one of my favorite fast casual burger places in the area, so I was excited when I was invited in to check out their new Golden Chicken Sandwich, which is only available for a limited time.  It is  made with tender chicken breast that is coated with a light crispy batter and fried to a juicy golden brown then topped with creamy, spicy red pepper sauce, crisp lettuce, fresh tomatoes, tangy pickles on a toasted soft bun.

It is simple and delicious, a balance of flavors and textures: crunchy, juicy, spicy, salty and fresh, surrounded by a tender bun and your tastebuds are tantalized by the sweet and spicy, rich and creamy red pepper sauce.

I love how the inside side of the pillowy bun has been toasted on the griddle, which gives it a lovely flavor and keeps it from getting soggy.  There’s maybe a little too much lettuce cuz it keeps falling out, but the vegetables add a fresh texture that is so good with the rich spicy sauce.  And did I mention that it’s $6.25 and is only on the menu through the end of November?

This was our feast of the Golden Chicken Sandwich with my favorite sides, Tempura Green Beans ($2.99) and Onion Rings ($2.45) and ranch dressing of course, to dip them in.  It was so good I went back again to get the above cross-section shot and to make sure it was as good as I remembered…  it was golden!

Thanks Habit Burger for joining the fried chicken sandwich frenzy and making it affordable, easy to find and so much better than your average fast-food fried chicken!

Oh no, fried chicken! Funny, this Habit Burger opened across the street from me recently and I was wondering about the burgers. I may have to go and see if they are indeed the best burgers in the country. I’d never heard of them until they popped up. Do you know if they have a grilled chicken? You know me and my aversion to fried foods. 😉

LOL, your comment made me go back to amend the statement to it is one of the best fast food burgers in the country. They do have a grilled chicken sandwich that is better than average, and I also like their salads that come with chicken, because they cook the chicken on the grill to order, so you never ever get cold congealed sliced chicken on your salad, which is a deal breaker for me. They also have a seared ahi tuna sandwich…

Nice; I’ll have to check this out FH. I think of the burger at Habit to be In-N-Out Jr and am not a big fan of the Tri-Tip…but fried chicken? Well, I’m deifinitely up for that.
