Remember the Double Down from KFC? Back in 2010 (read our full review), KFC released the chicken sandwich with chicken breast filets in the place where bread normally goes. It was met with a very mixed reaction, but there’s enough love for the Double Down to bring it back for a limited time. Starting on Monday, April 21st, the KFC Double Down will make its return to the menu. The sandwich will be around until May 25th.
The Double Down features two boneless white meat chicken filets (Original Recipe® or Grilled), two pieces of bacon, two melted slices of Monterey Jack and pepper jack cheese and Colonel’s Sauce. The Original Recipe version has 540 calories and 32 grams of fat. The Grilled version has 460 calories and 23 grams of fat.
The Burger King menu has some updates of note and its headlined by the new Chicken Big King sandwich. The Chicken Big King features two crispy all-white-meat chicken patties, American cheese, lettuce, pickles, onions and the signature King Sauce, all served between three stacked buns. Available for $3.59 at participating Burger King restaurants nationwide, the Chicken Big King is now a part of the two for $5 menu alongside the original Big King (review), Original Chicken Sandwich (review) and Big Fish Sandwich (review).
With the new Bacon Cheeseburger Deluxe now prominently featured on BK’s King Deals Value Menu, there’s room for a bigger version on the regular menu… and this one has bbq sauce.
