Review: Domino's® Pizza's Specialty Chicken

In an effort to stay competitive in the pizza industry, Domino's® Pizza has recently rolled out a new item on their menu that they call "Specialty Chicken". Some refer to it as a pizza with a baked chicken crust. I would describe it as a combination of the best of two worlds - baked chicken and pizza.

Specialty Chicken is essentially 12 pieces of bite-sized pieces of white meat baked chicken topped with a sauce and assorted pizza toppings. There are four different flavors: Crispy Bacon & Tomato, Classic Hot Buffalo, Spicy Jalapeno - Pineapple, and Sweet BBQ Bacon.

“Our new Specialty Chicken is one of the most creative, innovative menu items we have ever had,” said Russell Weiner, Domino's® Pizza chief marketing officer. “Our pizza chefs have taken chicken to a whole new level, using our unique ingredients to create these four bold flavors. There’s nothing quite like Domino's Specialty Chicken on the market today.”

“We are proud to be known as a pizza company, but Specialty Chicken shows we are not afraid to step out of our comfort zone and take risks – something that is truly part of our brand fabric,” said Weiner. “Not every risk we have taken has turned out to be successful, but as a brand we have learned that sometimes you have to fail in order to be great.”

Thanks to Domino's® Pizza, I received three orders of their Specialty Chicken delivered right to my door.



Here are the boxes they arrived in.  I don't think this particular location has received their "Specialty Chicken" boxes yet because I've seen pictures of boxes that are specifically labeled for the Specialty Chicken in other reviews on the internet.


Crispy Bacon & Tomato: Tender bites of lightly breaded, 100% whole breast white meat chicken, topped with garlic parmesan white sauce, a blend of cheese made with mozzarella and cheddar, crispy bacon and tomato.

Sweet BBQ Bacon: Tender bites of lightly breaded, 100% whole breast white meat chicken, topped with sweet and smoky BBQ sauce, a blend of cheese made with mozzarella and cheddar, and crispy bacon.



Classic Hot Buffalo: Tender bites of lightly breaded, 100% whole breast white meat chicken, topped with classic hot buffalo sauce, ranch, a blend of cheese made with mozzarella and cheddar, and feta.


The best way to eat Specialty Chicken is with your fingers (ditch the fork).  That way you can lick the sauce off your fingers. Tip: cut the chicken pieces apart first (for the same reason why you cut a pizza before eating it).


Here's a cross section of the all-white meat chicken tender.

I liked the Crispy Bacon & Tomato and Sweet BBQ Bacon.  The Classic Hot Buffalo was too soggy, possibly because it is topped with two sauces - ranch and BBQ.

I give Domino's® Pizza credit for trying to stay ahead of the game by coming out with new menu items that are innovative and creative.  Combining boneless baked chicken pieces with pizza toppings is a great idea since many people like both baked chicken and pizza - why not combine both into one product.
