Review: Mozzarella Chicken Supreme from Wendy’s

In a mad dash to return from my lunch break with something tasty and filling to eat my desk (how professional of me), I made a pit stop at Wendy’s. Poring over the menu choices I decided to get something a little more middle of the road than my usual, bargain-driven fare. Typically, I eat off the value menu at most fast food joints because I am a fatty on a budget, but I am also a sucker for a well-built chicken sandwich… enter the Mozzarella Chicken Supreme.Wendy’s describes the Mozzarella Chicken Supreme like this:

This season, treat yourself with Wendy’s Mozzarella Chicken Supreme. 100% premium chicken breast topped with natural mozzarella cheese and a rich, creamy parmesan sauce. Making tastes that make the season. That’s Wendy’s Way.

What struck me first was the weight. While not exactly Thickburger caliber, this is still no doubt a hefty conglomeration.  My first impression was that the Supreme looked to be hastily assembled, but taste is my very highest priority. I was only slightly underwhelmed.  Flavorful all white meat, juicy chicken breast, lightly breaded and then deep fried to crispy perfection. The chicken breast was exactly what I have come to expect from my past experience with my local Wendy’s. Not to sidebar here but that is the exact reason I go to their establishment as often as I do; the consistency is unparalleled. I know exactly what my food will taste like if it is an item I have previously sampled. The order is always correct, and everything is always freshly prepared. End obvious sidebar.Fairly mild in flavor, the generous amount of mozzarella cheese complements the chicken fillet. The slightly tangy parmesan sauce lent a bit more moisture and a small zing of flavor, however I found it strongly reminiscent of mayonnaise. The bun was adequate, neither adding or subtracting from the overall taste. Fresh lettuce and tomato rounded out the whole presentation nicely although more lettuce would have been most appreciated.While the sandwich did have good flavor I wanted to touch on one last thing. Without trying to sound pretentious, I felt the whole thing to be somewhat uninspired. The ingredients were quite general and the recipe surely was not the work of some cutting edge, up and coming, five star chef. It ate well, but borders on being bland despite the quality and freshness of all the ingredients. As any astute reader has likely inferred by now, I am a huge fan of customizing my grub. I think this would go over rather well with a spicy fillet and maybe subbing out the parmesan sauce for some honey mustard. Have you tried it yet? What are your thoughts?

Pros: Consistent ingredient quality, tasty premium chicken.

Cons: Overall this sandwich was distinctly standard Wendy's fodder. Not notable in any way.

    They need to quit putting their chicken sandwiches on hamburger buns. Still not sure why they think those crappy buns do the job, they are horrible and generic.

    You give it a 7.5 but say it’s “standard Wendy’s fodder” … you should have reviewed it as a limited time item rather than a mainstay Wendy’s item. Just my opinion. I haven’t had it yet, but just looking at it and knowing what it is makes me pass on it. It may taste good, but it seems like an absolutely pointless limited time item. It’s just so … average.

  3. That picture makes the cheese look like plastic

  4. Bob Smith says:

    I liked it, but I had a Spicy patty rather than the Homestyle one. Mine also had substantially more Parmesan sauce than yours.

  5. Rick says:

    I enjoyed the sandwich, maybe a little more pepper in the sauce but it’s better than asiago or cheese sauce ruined with vile mushrooms. The sandwich got better as it went along because the cheese had a chance to melt, it’s a tough equilibrium between the lettuce getting warm and the cheese melting though.

    EVERYTHING needs a Wendy’s Spicy Chicken filet.

  7. Scrape says:

    Chicken sandwiches in this order:

    1. Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken Deluxe
    2. Arbys (yes, Arbys) Chicken Bacon Swiss (though the Cravin’ is good, too)
    3. Wendy’s Asiago Chicken Ranch w/ spicy fillet
    4. KFC Double Down
    5. Everything else

  8. Darcy says:

    Chick-fil-A people, Chick-fil-A. Enough said.

  9. John says:

    Ok I had this today… It was not BAD. I got the Spicy filet with it which gave it the flavor and kick it needed… and they put just the right amount of the Parm sauce to kind of make the Mozz cheese incorporate with the sandwhich. My only gripe is the bun which was on the verge of becoming stale and should have been toasted or steamed. I think the sandwhich would have been worse quality except the manager was there running the ship at one of my local Wendys. Asiago chicken ranch is still better… but the Mozz sandwhich fed me well for the 7 dollar meal.

  10. Rebeka says:

    I always ask for extra lettuce and tomato at Wendy’s it helps every sandwich.

  11. Stephen says:

    I had a coupon for this and a different coupon for a regular Wendy’s chicken sandwich. This looks like a regular chicken sandwich with two pieces of cheese on it. Since the cheese I’ve seen there recently is half the thickness of cheese anywhere else, I thought it was a waste to pay $1+ more for this sandwich. I stuck with the regular crispy sandwich, which was fine. Funny… sometimes you get a burger and you wish you had ordered a bigger burger or another burger… the chicken sandwich is always the right size to fill me up.
