- Crispy buttermilk marinated chicken breast
- Shredded lettuce
- Buttermilk Herb Mayo
- Toasted Potato Roll
At first bite you can immediately tell that this isn’t just another fast food fried chicken sandwich. Most fried chicken sandwiches have patches of soggy breading. The ChickenShack’s breading is crispy and very flavorful. You can tell that at some point someone shook some real pronounceable seasonings into the batter. You can also tell that it was cooked relatively recently. The breading is extra crispy and the chicken appears to be quality–no weird questionable parts.
Lastly, is the standard Shake Shack Martin’s potato roll. I am a huge fan of the roll for the burgers. I thought it definitely helped make this sandwich taste distinctly like a Shake Shack sandwich. My only gripe is that it seemed to have a little bit of trouble standing up to the girth of the chicken breast. The roll was definitely maxed out trying to fit all the contents.
Shake Shack ChickenShack – The Verdict:
The Shake Shack ChickenShack is not only a mouthful to say, but also a substantial sandwich. The obvious–and really the only–close comparisons to make is with Chick-Fil-A’s Classic Chicken Sandwich. The ChickenShack is definitely higher quality tasting and more filling. The portion size is great, and with fries and a drink you will be full. The problem is the sandwich is 6.29 without fries or a drink. The bottom line is the ChickenShack is the best fast food chicken sandwich I’ve tasted, and I look forward to it being available at all the Shake Shack locations.
