The first thing I noticed when I opened the box of Boca in a Bun Chick'n & Swiss Sandwich was that the sandwich looks exactly like the picture on the box. What you see is what you get, and what you will see is a whole wheat bun, a breaded patty (made from meatless soy) and a slice of swiss cheese - doesn't this actually make it a burger ... since it's on a burger bun?
Well, not sure why Boca wants to call this a sandwich, but we'll roll with it. The directions are are for microwaving and after nuking it for the desired time, I was surprised that the bun was moist but not soggy and the meatless chick'n was delicious - tastes like real chicken to me, and certainly non-vegetarians will enjoy this. It's very similar to the Boca Meatless Spicy Chikn Patty, but without the spicy kick.
However, this should more accurately be described as a starter sandwich. It definitely needs some additions like lettuce, tomato and ketchup (because I put ketchup on everything) to make it a worthwhile and substantial meal. The directions say to microwave it, but I found a hard time getting the timing just right to prevent the cheese from bubbling. It is much better if it's prepared in a toaster oven.
One Chick'n & Swiss Sandwich provides 350 calories, 14 grams of total fat including 4 grams of saturated fat (both are 20% of the RDA), 33% of the RDA for sodium, 20 grams of protein and 44 grams of total carbohydrates which includes 8 grams of sugar and 24% of the RDA for fiber (6 grams).
The high sodium and saturated fat are of concern, so make sure this is part of a healthy diet. A box with 2 sandwiches cost $3.58 but I don't think it's worth it. The cost might be the same if you bought a box of 4 Boca Meatless Spicy Chik'n Patties, a loaf of bread and fat free cheese (read our review of Borden Fat Free Sharp Cheddar Singles), but the fat content would be much lower.
