SUBWAY - Oven Crisp Chicken Review

August 25, 2011 · 8 comments

Disclaimer: Subway sent me a $25 Subway gift card to sample their new Oven Crisp Chicken subway sandwich, however I am under no obligation to do so nor to make the review positive. This review reflects my personal opinion about this product. Read below to see how to win your own $25 gift card!

I was pleased to be contacted by Subway as part of their Chicken Challenge celebrating their new Oven Crisp Chicken sandwich because I frequent Subway (as this search on Subway reveals) and am always happy to try new things their. I jumped on the Avocado bandwagon when they “went green” (which they seem to have stopped) and while I’ve mostly been settling for a simple veggie sub I thought this new sandwich sounded pretty good.

Small Sub

Last night after my daughter’s soccer practice we went to Subway for dinner and I figured that I would get her opinion on the Oven Crisp Chicken as well since she had mentioned wanting to try it. She had a 6″ Oven Crisp Chicken sub on Italian bread with bacon, american cheese, lettuce and tomato. According to the Subway calorie calculator this was 470 calories, 13.2 grams of fat, 27 grams of protein and 1190 milligrams of sodium. My daughter is 12 and doesn’t worry about such things - she gave the taste two thumbs up. We both had the chicken heated up but didn’t toast the bread.

Large Sub

I had a 12″ Oven Crisp Chicken sub on Italian with spicy mustard, lettuce, tomato, black olives, jalapenos, cucumbers and salt and pepper. The stats on this one (notice no cheese, no mayo, no olive oil, etc) were 770 calories, 13.7 grams of fat, 44 grams of protein and 2020 mg of sodium.

Overall my daughter and I really liked the taste of the Subway Oven Crisp Chicken sandwich - deep flavor, not deep fried - available from August 15th through September 30th!

Subway has graciously offered to send a $25 gift card to one of my US Resident readers! All you need to do to have a chance to win is to leave a comment here telling me your favorite Subway sandwich. I’ll pick a random winner later this week. Good luck!

I absolutely love the buffalo chicken sandwich on Monterey cheddar with onions, lettuce, black olives, tomatoes, ranch, and chipotle sauce. Also, add some lightly shredded cheese!!

Perfect sandwich - I don’t get it a lot due to the higher calorie count - bur very good!

You need to have them add more veggies. No seriously, every time I go to Subway challenge them to see how many veggies they can fit into the bun. Occasionally you’ll find someone that will take on the challenge - then you have an excellent Subway sandwich.

My favorite Subway sub is the pizza one with pepperoni, marinara, and cheese.

I usually go for the oven roasted chicken. I feel like it is pretty healthy and also tastes good. I also tried the oven crisp chicken last week and liked it too…although when I ate it I wished there was more “crisp” to it.

Thanks everyone!

We eat the chicken breast subs often. I agree with Troy, bring on the veggies!!!

Subway has actually improved a lot over the last few years. I pick up a sandwich with some joint juice on the way home from my Tuesday night basketball games. My favorite is a tuna melt with avocado.
