Wendy’s adds a new chicken sandwich to the menu with the arrival of its new 780-calorie Italian Mozzarella Chicken sandwich.
The Italian Mozzarella Chicken sandwich features a juicy, lightly breaded crispy chicken breast, topped with deep-fried mozzarella cheese, rich marinara sauce, and naturally aged Asiago cheese, all served on a garlic knot bun.
About 36 percent of the calories in an Italian Mozzarella Chicken sandwich come from fat, 41 percent come from carbs, and the remainder, which is about 23 percent, from protein.
