I am a sucker for any kind of chicken done up Buffalo sauce style, be it wings, chicken tenders, chicken thighs, grilled, baked, fried, breaded, you name it, Buffalo sauce rocks!

So when Wendy's announced a new twist on their Crispy Chicken Sandwich, I had to jump on it!

The description of the Wendy's Buffalo Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich from the company's website:  The crispy chicken sandwich taken to zesty new heights, with tangy, creamy buffalo ranch sauce and Monterrey Jack cheese on lightly-breaded chicken.

In unveiling this new sandwich, Wendy's is selling it for just $1! 

So how is it?

Pretty darn good for $1!

As a lover of Buffalo sauce, I would like to see the chicken patty dunked in the sauce, but Wendy's chose to sauce the bun.  It's a good but not great sauce, it hits most of the traditional Buffalo hot notes and as expected the Ranch cools things down, there's just not enough of it.  The Monterrey Jack cheese is the perfect compliment to the chicken on a saucy bun and there's just enough lettuce on the sandwich to make for a satisfying bite.  For just $1, it's a repeat buy.

It's a nice sandwich that's priced right.  The Wendy's Buffalo Ranch Crispy Chicken Sandwich gets 3 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars.  If the chicken was sauced, it would be a better sandwich.

3 stars
