Popular restaurants paired chicken with a variety of cheese, from queso to cotija to parmesan, in several new menu items.
Queso adds flavor to Wendy’s new Bacon Queso Chicken Sandwich. It features a home-style chicken breast topped with fire roasted salsa, red onions, thick-cut applewood smoked bacon, shredded cheddar cheese and poblano queso cheese sauce on a red jalapeño bun.
Cotija combines with chicken in Starbucks’ Chicken & Quinoa Protein Bowl with Black Beans and Greens. This new menu item contains grilled white meat chicken raised without antibiotics, cotija cheese, lettuce, quinoa, tomatoes, roasted corn, black beans and jicama and with mild tomato chili vinaigrette served on the side.
Parmesan pairs with the protein-rich poultry meat in Burger King’s new Chicken Parmesan Sandwich. It is made with crispy, seasoned 100% white meat chicken, melted mozzarella, shaved parmesan and marinara sauce.
