The Ultimate Makeover: Wendy's New Grilled Chicken Sandwich
For a limited time, try it in a combo meal for only $5.00*

DUBLIN, Ohio, Sept. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Get ready for the big reveal! Wendy's has put the finishing touches on its newly redesigned Grilled Chicken Sandwich. Starting with the bun and going all the way to the grilled chicken breast, the new Grilled Chicken Sandwich packs big flavor because it was elevated to a higher standard—yours.

Wendy's new Grilled Chicken Sandwich--a better-for-you option that delivers on taste. Built on a seasoned, all-white meat chicken breast, it's topped with spring mix, fresh-cut tomatoes, a smoky honey mustard sauce and placed on a new multigrain bun. Part of the everyday menu, but currently available for a limited time as a $5.00 combo meal, including a small fry and small drink.

"When we set out to recreate this sandwich, our goal was a better-for-you option that delivered an unbelievable taste," said Carl Loredo, vice present of marketing and advertising at Wendy's. "It all starts with a juicier and more tender chicken fillet. We've added high-quality ingredients from top to bottom including a new multi-grain bun that delivers a deliciously different grilled chicken sandwich."

The new Grilled Chicken Sandwich features an all-white meat chicken breast that's marinated in herbs and seasonings. Grilled for caramelized flavor, it's topped with fresh ingredients like spring mix, fresh-cut tomatoes and a smoky honey mustard sauce. To finish it off, Wendy's created a new multi-grain bun made with a wholesome blend of red quinoa, bulgur wheat, millet, flax seed and oats for a nutty flavor with a touch of sweetness.

The new Grilled Chicken Sandwich will be part of the everyday menu, but for a limited time only, a combo meal, including a small fry and small drink, is available for $5.00 at participating Wendy's. A cost that will keep you within budget.
