ATLANTA – Chick-fil-A is test marketing two new entrees – Spicy Chick-n-Strips and a Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich – in select markets for a limited time. Stores located in Philadelphia, Central Texas and South Texas will offer the Spicy Chick-n-Strips. Restaurants located in Orlando, Florida, St. Louis, and Knoxville, Tennessee, will be among the first to offer the Grilled Spicy Deluxe Chicken Sandwich.
“We hope our guests in the test cities will try the new Spicy Chick-n-Strips and Grilled Spicy Deluxe Chicken Sandwich and let us know what they think – their feedback will help us determine whether or not we will roll out the new entrees nationwide in the future,” said Kanika Patrick, manager of menu development at Chick-fil-A.
The breaded chicken strips are seasoned with a blend of peppers, and cooked in peanut oil. The Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich features grilled chicken marinated in a spicy seasoning, served on a brioche bun with cheese, lettuce and tomato. It comes with a Cilantro Lime Sauce.
“We’ve heard from our customers how much they love our current spicy menu offerings, so we’re really excited to give them even more spicy flavor options to enjoy,” Patrick said.
