SONIC’s Newest Menu Item: Dunked Ultimate Chicken Sandwich

Bourbon BBQ Dunked Ultimate Chicken SandwichDuring the week I am very busy and during the weekends, it’s even worse. At least 6 days a week I am running non-stop from 5 AM to 10 PM at night. While I would love to make home-cooked meals 3 times a day, it is just not feasible with the schedule that I keep.

* Please see disclosure at bottom of the post.

When I am out running around and need a good hot meal, I like to turn to Sonic Drive-In who has an extensive menu and everyone in my family can find something that he or she likes. They aren’t just another fast-food burger joint on the block. Nope, they are different, at least in my honest opinion.

Sonic Drive-In has a new menu item and I’m excited to tell you about it today. If you haven’t heard, it’s called the Dunked Ultimate Chicken Sandwich. It’s available for a limited-time in 3 delicious flavors.

Buffalo Dunked Ultimate Chicken Sandwich

When we visited our local Sonic Drive-In they ONLY had 2 of them available. So, we ordered two of the Bourbon BBQ Dunked Ultimate Chicken Sandwiches and two of the Buffalo Dunked Ultimate Chicken Sandwiches to try out for all of you.

The Bourbon BBQ Dunked Ultimate Chicken Sandwich includes a chicken fillet dunked in bourbon sauce on a brioche bun, topped with onions and pickles.

The Buffalo Dunked Ultimate Chicken Sandwich includes a chicken fillet dunked in buffalo sauce on a brioche bun, topped with mayo and jalapeños.

What’s really nice about these dunked chicken sandwiches is that they’re different than other sandwiches that you find at other restaurants. The flavor combinations are unique, so if you’re tired of the same old, same old, you definitely want to give them a try.

Out of the two varieties that we tried, my favorite was the Buffalo, while my husband’s favorite was the Bourbon. If you like food with a lot of southern flavor…go for the bourbon. If you’re more of a chicken-classic type of person…go for the buffalo. Both of them were jam-packed with flavor and just one sandwich really fills you up. Definitely a meal and not a snack!

Head on out to your nearest Sonic Drive-In location and give these new Dunked Ultimate Chicken Sandwiches a try. You can use their store locator on their website to find a location near you and you can view their full menu of offerings online. You can connect with Sonic on Facebook too!

  1. The closest Sonic Drive In is a few hours away from us but luckily it is on a drive to see family so we make a point to stop there on the way. I will be looking forward to trying the Garlic Parmesan sandwich for sure when I get my usual milkshake.

  2. I have never been to a Sonic Drive In, I have a gift card to use.but I do not know what to order.

  3. I have not been to Sonic in so long. This new sandwich really sounds like on that I would like and I sure could go for a milk shake.

  4. I hope the Sonic nearest me has the Garlic Parmesan Dunked Ultimate Chicken Sandwich. It would go well with their yummy limeade.

    I sure wish their was a Sonic Restaurant around here. Not even in the 2 closest towns near us. You have described their food before and it sounds so Good. If I had a choice I would probably pick the Garlic Parmesan Chicken sandwich. That sounds amazing… My Husband and I don’t like Buffalo sauce at all. The Bourbon Sauce sounds good with the pickles and onions on top too! Thank you for Posting these awesome sandwiches..
