Are you one of those people who wakes up craving a Chick-fil-A lunch, even though it's only 9am? Don't be ashamed, you're not alone. There's something about that crispy chicken sandwich and waffle fries that just hits differently.
But before you jump in your car and head straight to the drive-thru, let me guide you through some important things you should know about Chick-fil-A breakfast, secret menu items and more!
The Early Bird Gets The Chicken Sandwich
First things first: Did you know that not all Chick-fil-A locations serve breakfast?
It's true! Some franchises only have breakfast available until 10:30 am on weekdays, while others serve it all day long or not at all on weekends.
Tip: Before heading out for an early morning feast, check the hours of operation for your nearest location on their website or give them a quick call to avoid any disappointment.
Now, if there is breakfast available at your local restaurant...Congratulations! You can start your day off with some delicious options like:
- Chicken Biscuit
- Egg White Grill
- Breakfast Burrito
- Hash Browns
- And more!
Pro-tip: If none of these standard menu items tickle your fancy – don't worry. With their secret menu options growing every year, you're sure to find something that will satisfy those taste buds later on in this article!
Breakfast Or Lunch - What To Pick?
If you didn’t know by now Chik-Fil-a serves both breakfast as well as lunch/dinner menu throughout the day which makes it so convenient when we are feeling peckish outside our regular meal times but leaves us wondering what meal option should we pick from three popular sandwiches. Below we discuss each sandwich in detail
The Classic Chicken Sandwich
If you're a traditionalist and want to stick with their classic sandwich, the Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich is always a solid choice.
Made with 100% pure seasoned chicken breast, served on a toasted buttered bun with two pickles – it's simple but oh-so delicious. There's something about that juicy and crispy blend that makes this sandwich stand out.
But if you're feeling adventurous, let me introduce you to some of the less popular (but just as amazing) sandwiches available at CFA
Spicy Chicken Sandwich
For those who like an extra kick in their food, try the spicy version. A mouth-watering combination of fresh lettuce and tomatoes on top of breaded boneless meat slathered in spicy sauce makes for an unforgettable flavor experience.
Deluxe Chicken Sandwich
Want all the fixings? Go for the deluxe option! This one features everything in their classic sandwich plus leaf lettuce and tomato slices!
Pro tip: If choosing which type of bread for your sandwiches creates mental mayhem while placing your order consider picking exclusively from either brioche or multigrain ciabatta bun’s - both options are equally delicious.
Secret Menu Items That Will Change Your Life
Now onto my favorite part – secret menu items! Yep, I said it. Every restaurant has them; some menus have even made them official.
Just keep in mind that not every location will know what these are or be willing to make/serve what isn't included on the standard menu so kindly ask first.
So without further ado here are three compulsive-worthy secret-menu items:
Spicy Char Delight
A true masterpiece—This concoction demands quite an appetite since its created by topping off a char-grilled filet pattie covered in melted pepper-jack cheese layered under Jalapeño peppers alongside bacon strips merged into firm Pepper Jack Cheese leaving Sriracha Mayo to be drizzled over a buttered bun.
Hashbrown Scramble Bowl
A personal favorite of mine, the hash brown scramble bowl is filled with creamy scrambled eggs that sit on top of crispy chick-n-minis chopped into fluffy bite-size pieces along with shredded cheese and nuggets - YUM!
Pro-tip: crave it before 11 AM! It’s only available as part of their breakfast.
Egg White Grill w/ Avocado
Increasingly becoming popular amongst the health-conscious Chick-fil-a guests due to its simplicity yet fresh flavor profile— This item features grilled chicken topped off by egg white patty alongside mild cheddar cheese on toasted multigrain brioche bun spread out using a complementary sliced avocado topping! 😋
Keep The Health In Check
Now that you know what type of sandwiches and secret menu items you could indulge in-- let's keep our health goals in check too.
Consider swapping out traditional mayonnaise for lighter options such as honey mustard, Buffalo hot sauce or even ketchup when creating your own spin-off from your favorite sandwich -- this should go some way towards cutting down calories.
Secondly, if calorie count doesn’t worry ya oftentimes (!!) then avoid opting for milkshakes instead try their delicious Arnold Palmer – which is an amazing combination 50% homemade iced tea & remaining lemonade all shaken up.
There you have it friends; everything you need to know about satisfying those Chick Fil A cravings at any time of the day. From breakfast selections and various burgers made with tender love care many clever ways to tweak staple favorites without adding tremendous amounts of calories -- Chick-Fil-A clearly knows how to make each visit remarkable.
