On the one hand, it is a variant of chicken cordon bleu. . . on the other it is certainly a tragedy for the 2,000 calorie/day diet.

I traveled from MA to upstate NY recently and experienced a lot of bad food. Ate a salad at McDonald's. The lettuce was black with age and the cheese as dry as saw dust. A fish sandwich at the Greyhound cafeteria (traveled by bus as I was concerned that snow was still a possibility) was thawed, not fully cooked.

@djjd62,
Lose the breading on the chicken and it's a carb-counters dream meal.

Sounds (and looks) pretty good to me.

But, then, I don't diet. Diet is a four-letter word.

I think it needs to come with 500 mgs of Lipitor per sandwich.

I doubt it'd be a big seller up here. Looks disgusting and stupid, actually.

@Mame,
It has to be one of the messiest marketing disasters ever cooked up by a large scale fast food franchise.

Quote:
12:46: Ian: Do you remember the days when sandwiches were made with bread, not chicken?
12:47: Mike: Seriously, this is rewriting the rules of lunch. And of sandwiches. We're going to replace peanut butter and jelly with chicken and chicken.
12:48: Ian: Right, from now on, the word "sandwich" just means "stack of chicken."
12:51: Brian: This sandwich is an Al Qaeda plot.
12:51: Mike: This is a Last Days type of thing, right? Didn't the Romans reveal a Double Down before they fell?
12:51: Ian: I shouldn't be typing while eating this. My keyboard is really shiny.
