Introducing Burger King’s Chicken King

At Burger King, everything on the menu receives a royal treatment worthy of a crown. From the iconic flame-grilled Whopper to plant-based meals made exciting, BK is where great food rules. This time around, Burger King heeded the call of chicken lovers and introduced the Chicken King!


“We are delighted that Chicken King is finally here in the Philippines and it’s ready to rule the taste buds of every Filipino,” said John Velasco, Country General Manager of Burger King Philippines. And indulge we did, as BK announced that Chicken King sold out within two weeks after it hit stores last July 26.


But wait, what is it about the Chicken King every chicken lover loves? This mighty sandwich boasts bold flavors and hefty portions that will surely hit the spot. And that’s thanks to the golden chicken patty cooked to juicy perfection, fresh tomato, crispy lettuce, and a smooth and creamy mayonnaise dressing sandwiched between soft, buttery potato buns.


The FOMO is real with Burger King’s Chicken King. Order yours in all Mega Manila, Pampanga, Rizal, Cavite, Laguna, and Bulacan BK restaurants.
