Burger King looks into putting a “Philly” spin on its crispy chicken sandwich with the test of a new Philly Chicken Sandwich at select locations.
The Philly Chicken Sandwich features a crispy white meat breast fillet topped with BK’s Royal Sauce, cheese, red and green bell peppers, and grilled onions, which is expected, especially if they’re actually trying to replicate the authentic Philly cheesesteak experience.
Moreover, I suppose Burger King is using Provolone cheese for this test item, as that’s what goes into the traditional Philly cheesesteak sandwich recipe. Besides, Swiss cheese is the only type of white cheese that’s currently available on Burger King’s menu, and any Philly cheesesteak connoisseur will tell you that, although it may pair well, the only acceptable cheese for a Philly cheesesteak sandwich are Provolone, White American, or Cheez Whiz.
One YouTube food reviewer who spotted the sandwich at his local Burger King said he paid $11.76 for a Philly Combo served with a side of classic fries and a drink. Although he did not reveal the exact location, he did mention in the comments that he purchased it somewhere around the Michigan area.
Back in 2013, Burger King offered a similar item called the “Philly Original Chicken Sandwich,” which featured a lightly breaded chicken fillet topped with a mix of bell peppers and seasoned grilled onions, American cheese and creamy cheese sauce on a long, sesame seed bun.
