DUBLIN, Ohio, -- Wendy's recently released the Made to Crave menu – a sandwich line dedicated to unlocking a whole new world of flavors. Now, Wendy's Made to Crave menu is bringing you a new chicken lineup guaranteed to satisfy those craveable taste buds. Introducing three new chicken sandwiches to Wendy's chicken menu: Avocado BLT, S'Awesome Bacon Chicken and Barbecue Chicken.
Made to Crave Chicken sandwiches takes Wendy's core menu that much further, driving more flavor variety to your go-to chicken sandwiches while never sacrificing quality. The best part? The Made to Crave Chicken lineup features each of Wendy's different fillets. We're talking the lightly breaded and specially seasoned homestyle, grilled and for when you want to raise the temperature a bit – spicy. Each sandwich is made with all white meat chicken with no artificial flavors, preservatives or colors from artificial sources.
"After seeing the customer response to our Made to Crave Hamburger lineup, we knew we had to continue the excitement and flavor creativity with chicken," said Kurt Kane, Wendy's Executive Vice President, Chief Concept and Marketing Officer. "So why settle for basic when you can satisfy your cravings with any undeniably good, every day flavor from our lineup of new Made to Crave Chicken sandwiches."
In 2017, Wendy's made a significant investment in chicken quality which resulted in more tender, juicy and consistently delicious chicken. Building on that, the Avocado BLT, S'Awesome Bacon Chicken and Barbecue Chicken sandwiches are individually crafted and frankly, anything but basic – because let's face it, everyone deserves an upgrade.
