First Impressions: Sweet & Spicy Chicken Habanero Oven Baked Sandwich from Domino’s
I guess I’m in a Sweet and Spicy kind of mood today to post my first impressions of the new SweetFire Chicken Breast from Panda Express followed by the Sweet & Spicy Chicken Habanero Oven Baked Sandwich from Domino’s. As we reported last week, Domino’s has expanded it’s line of sandwiches with four new offerings. I just got my grubby little hands on this Chicken Habanero sub yesterday and I’m here to report some quick thoughts.
The Sweet & Spicy Chicken Habanero goes a little something like this:
A SWEET & SPICY medley, made with all white meat chicken breast, pineapple, jalapenos, sweet mango habanero sauce, provolone & cheddar cheese. On artisan Italian bread & baked to a golden brown.
Ordering Domino’s online let’s you choose certain ingredients to be “light” or “extra”…and being the wimp that I am, I chose to go light on the habanero sauce and the jalapenos. Going “light” didn’t help much as the sandwich was still pretty spicy for my tastes but definitely tolerable and actually pretty tasty. The artisan Italian bread is super crisp and toasty. The chicken breast was plentiful and the pineapple provided the nice sweetness. The provolone & cheddar cheeses did just enough to make their presence known and that was a big positive. This sandwich was pretty oily/greasy from the bread alone so have some napkins handy.
At the current promo price of $4.99 the sandwich is so-so filling and a lot smaller than the commercial shows it to be. I’d probably order it again if I was getting Domino’s but if the price goes up to $5.99 (which is very likely) I might have to pass. A decent effort from Domino’s and a little more inspired than the other offerings currently available.
