After testing more than 1,200 recipes, Chick-fil-A landed on a new recipe that has a blend of sea salt, lemon, garlic and herbs, and is grilled on cast-iron grates to give it a smoky flavor like it was made at home on your backyard grill.
The Chick-fil-A® Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Chick-fil-A® Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich and Chick-fil-A® Grilled Nuggets features an unmatched backyard grilled taste. Each grilled chicken breast is freshly marinated with a blend of sea salt, lemon, garlic and savory herbs, and cooked on a state-of-the-art, proprietary grill developed by Chick-fil-A. The technique creates a tender, juicy filet with just the right amount of smoky flavor.
To make this menu enhancement possible, Chick-fil-A invested seven years of testing and more than $50 million to reinvent its grilled chicken recipe. The largest portion of the investment came as the company worked with Garland Grills to create a proprietary grill. This grill sears chicken perfectly on cast-iron grates like it was cooked on a backyard grill, only faster.
Being HUGE Chick-fil-A fans in our house and are excited to try out this new chicken! We just heard that we’ll be getting a Chick-fil-A in the near future in our town, but for now have to drive an hour to the closest restaurant. Totally worth it for their delicious menu and welcoming restaurant!
