Review & Taste Test: Burger King Chicken Strips

Updated on May 30, 2016

Burger King Chicken Strips

First, a little background on chicken strips. It's no surprise that many fast food restaurants serve "chicken strips" either in the form of crispy or grilled. The latter is meant for more "health conscious customers, though they're not really healthier. If you recall, McDonald's had discontinued its version of it's chicken strips, aptly named Premium Chicken Selects earlier in 2013. McDonald's claims that it wasn't a big seller and that it wanted to focus more on "healthier" selections on the menu. The McWrap was introduced in its place.

The Burger King Chicken Strips most closely resemble the McDonald's Chicken Selects visually and in texture.


Burger King Chicken Strips Taste Test & Overall Impression

The first thing that I noticed was that the chicken strips from Burger King have a striking resemblance to that of the McDonald's Premium Chicken Selects, though not as crispy looking.

My overall impression was that the chicken strips from Burger King were not as juicy as McDonald's, but the taste was very similar though a little bit more salty.

If you've ever tasted the original Burger King Chicken Tenders, these chicken strips are by far way better and more tastier than that. And if you've tried the Burger King's chicken nuggets, though they are totally different, these chicken strips have by far way better flavor and a better taste.

I often ate the McDonald's Chicken Selects alone without a sauce because I felt they were tasty enough and contained enough flavor to stand on its own. The Burger King Chicken Strips are equally the same. In my opinion, no dipping sauce is needed to enjoy how flavorful they are. They are very good to eat by themselves alone.

I purchased the 3-piece, but you can get a 5-piece version, too. I should have opted for the latter because I was a bit shocked to see how little and how small the pieces really were. Good thing that I opted for a "combo meal" because if I were to just eat 3-pieces alone, I'd still be hungry. Overall, I would definitely eat these chicken strips again.

Burger King Chicken Strips Nutrition

Let's now take a look at the nutritional value of these chicken strips. It's important to note that these chicken strips are not healthy by any means. What's important to note is that these strips are VERY salty at 1,400 mg of sodium for three pieces. That is considered very salty. At a little over 400 mg of sodium per piece of chicken, this is rather salty.
