Chick-Fil-A Gives Grilled Menu a Makeover
Atlanta-HQ’d restaurant chain Chick-Fil-A is out to prove that healthier doesn’t have to mean bland. After 7 years (yes, YEARS) of testing and refining, the behemoth chain that takes Sunday’s off has unveiled three brand new menu items that they claim will have “an unmatched backyard grilled taste,” according to RestaurantNews.com.
Yesterday, Chick-Fil-A rolled out the new Chick-fil-A® Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Chick-fil-A® Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich and Chick-fil-A® Grilled Nuggets to support their menu wide effort to provide more flavorful and healthier options for their customers trying to watch waistlines. In addition to the new seasoning recipe that include sea salt, garlic, lemon and other herbs, the chain has also joined with Garland Grills to produce an iron-grated grill specifically made for Chick-Fil-A® restaurants only that will perfectly sear the chicken to give it that backyard smoked flavor at fast food speeds.
The Chick-fil-A® Grilled Market Salad, Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap® and Chick-fil-A® Chicken Salad Sandwich are all now being produced with the new chicken as well. David Farmer, the company’s VP of Product Strategy and Development, had this to say about the decision to give their menu a makeover: “Chick-fil-A is more committed than ever to providing our customers with a ‘menu of choice’ that not only tastes great, but is great for them,” Farmer added. “Whether our customers are counting carbs, fat or calories, or eating food made without gluten-containing ingredients, we offer a number of menu options to suit their dietary needs and preferences. To keep them informed, we make our nutritional information easily accessible for all guests, including an online meal calculator, calorie counts posted on our menu boards, nutrition panels and pamphlets in our dining rooms, and order-specific nutrition information printed on receipts by request.”
The products became available April 14th, so head over to your local Chick-Fil-A (as long as you’re not reading this on a Sunday and you’re so lucky to have one close by) and let us know what you think!
