ATLANTA — Chick-fil-A is introducing a new lineup of grilled chicken entrees that will give the chain a more nutritious and expansive menu.
On April 14, the Atlanta-based restaurant chain will officially roll-out three new entrees – the Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich and Chick-fil-A Grilled Nuggets – in an ongoing effort to provide more flavorful and “craveable” grilled options for its nutrition-minded customers.
Chick-fil-A’s new recipe features what they are calling an "unmatched backyard grilled taste." Each grilled chicken breast is marinated with a blend of sea salt, lemon, garlic and herbs, and cooked on a state-of-the-art, proprietary grill developed by Chick-fil-A. The technique creates a tender, juicy filet with a 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.
“We started with a mission to create a best-in-class grilled sandwich, and after testing 1,200-plus recipes, we landed on a taste so remarkable that we decided to extend the flavor into a full grilled line,” said David Farmer, Chick-fil-A’s vice president of product strategy and development. “Our previous grilled entrees were good, but not remarkable. We wanted a grilled chicken recipe that is just as ‘craveable’ as our original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich.”
