Wendy's Spicy Sriracha Chicken Sandwich
The entire sandwich, including the bun and the cheese, is infused with Sriracha
"Sriracha lovers have an irrational love for the sauce, so we knew we had to find a way to properly honor that devotion with the Spicy Sriracha Chicken Sandwich," said Carl Loredo, vice president of Marketing and Advertising at Wendy's. "We did more than just spread or drizzle Sriracha on a chicken sandwich. We went all in and infused sriracha in the entire sandwich – delivering the maximum amount of flavor from the first bite until the last."
Starting with a toasted Sriracha-infused bun, a dollop of Sriracha aioli is added to amplify the chili-garlic taste. Next comes thick-cut, oven baked Applewood Smoked Bacon to bring out a savory note. Then even more Sriracha flavor is added with a custom Sriracha Jack cheese. The spiciness of the sandwich is layered with Wendy's always tender and flavorful Spicy Chicken filet. Featuring a fiery blend of eight spices and peppers, it gets its kick from a special mix of black pepper, chili pepper and mustard seed.
To round out the full Sriracha-filled experience, Wendy's is also adding Bacon Sriracha Fries to the menu for a limited time. The sandwich is made on a base of Wendy's natural-cut sea salt French fries and topped with a creamy Sriracha aioli, Applewood Smoked Bacon and a cheddar cheese sauce.
