    Maybe someone can correct me: Burger King is calling this a “premium white meat chicken fillet”… I believe a “fillet” very definitely not a patty, a “fillet” is a whole piece or cut, where a “patty” is processed and formed.

    Seems quite deceptive to consciously choose to call it a “fillet” instead of “patty” in advertising.

      I never order this, so I had no idea it was usually $4. Really? $4 for an elongated version of their regular Chick’n Crisp sandwich? Isn’t their Tendergrill/Tendercrisp line priced similarly? Why bother with this sad offering when those are available? And even then, I think I’d prefer anything from the McDonald’s Premium Chicken Sandwich line (which is also an example of where the term “premium” hasn’t yet lost all meaning, at least compared to the rest of their fare).

      • Nick says:

        The tendercrisp is at least an actual whole piece of chicken meat. This is a processed & formed chicken patty, not a solid piece of meat.

        • Bubbsy says:

          I know it’s a patty…. the grubgrade article (here) says BK describes it as a “fillet”. I’m trying to say that it’s pretty blatant misleading advertising for BK to describe it as a “fillet” instead of a patty. Because this original chicken sandwich is not a “fillet” as advertised. Am I really the only person to notice this?

    Ha, yeah, “premium.” Which makes BK’s other sandwiches what? Super ultra premium? Nonetheless, for $1.04 it’s a nice deal.

  3. Helldog says:

    Just remember to tell them “easy mayo” unless you want a spread of mayo as thick as the “fillet.”

  4. CulinaryZerg says:

    Especially with the mayo and over-salted patty, this is one of the least healthy and lowest quality sandwiches out there. The exact opposite of premium. It’s a 99-cent sandwich that they charge $4 for normally.

    That said, it’s still a guilty pleasure of mine when it’s this cheap.

    At 1,390mg of sodium their is nothing premium about this sandwhich

  6. Evan says:

    These are actually bad enough that I don’t even like them at this price. The quality is just so bad. It’s terrible chicken patty, limp lettuce, and tons of mayo. It’s even more depressing that the regular price is close to $4.

  7. MP says:

    There is nothing “premium” about this. The ad is blatant advertising. It’s a cheap processed chicken fillet on a long bun. It’s a salt lick, fatty mayonnaise, white lettuce, stale long bun & most likely overcooked and/or cold.
    This is why Burger King disappoints so much. It’s total junk at higher prices to give you the illusion of a decent product.
    Even at $1.04, it’s a ripoff. Don’t bother. Go somewhere else.

  8. Kevin says:

    Fillet =/= Patty.

    Burger King describes this as a “chicken fillet”, according to article?

    Where did you find Burger King describe this as a “fillet”?
