ATLANTA — Chick-fil-A is testing a one-of-a-kind sandwich entrée, the Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich, at restaurants in Denver, Charleston, SC, and North Carolina’s Greensboro-Triad region.
The sandwich is made with a tender cut of real cauliflower and then marinated, breaded with a signature seasoning, pressure-cooked, and served on a toasted buttery bun with two dill pickle chips.
“Cauliflower is the hero of our new sandwich, and it was inspired by our original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich,” said Leslie Neslage, director of menu and packaging at Chick-fil-A. “Guests told us they wanted to add more vegetables into their diets, and they wanted a plant-forward entrée that tasted uniquely Chick-fil-A. Our new sandwich is made with the highest quality ingredients and whole vegetables, and we hope it offers customers another reason to dine at Chick-fil-A.”
The sandwich is four years in the making by Chick-fil-A chefs who explored many ingredients in the plant-based space in search of a centerpiece for the brand’s plant-forward entrée.
“Time and time again, we kept returning to cauliflower as the base of our sandwich,” said Stuart Tracy, culinary developer of the Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich. “After a significant amount of development, we knew we had a one-of-a-kind entrée, one that puts a delicious spin on what we’re known for — great tasting food with ingredients you can trust.”
