McDonald's To Make Premium Chicken Sandwich Taste Less 'Italian'

McDonald's is changing the recipe for its grilled chicken sandwich, in order to give it a "more neutral flavor profile." Neutral apparently means less Italian in flavor (not to be confused with the McItaly, however, which is in fact, more Italian in flavor).

The new chicken will be made with mirepoix (sautéed carrot, onion and celery), salt and pepper and maybe a little garlic and herbs.

The ingredients in McDonald's Premium Grilled Chicken Classic Sandwich include: honey wheat roll, grilled chicken breast fillet, mayonnaise dressing, leaf lettuce and tomato slice. So we're a little stumped about where the "Italian" flavor emanates from.
