If you’re a fan of spicy food, we have some good news for you: Fast-food chain Chick-fil-A is introducing some new spicy menu items, including Spicy Chick-n-Strips and a Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich. The additions were made in response to growing demand from customers for grub that brings the heat.
“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,” Kanika Patrick, manager of menu development at Chick-fil-A, said in a statement.
So what exactly can we expect from these new menu items? The Spicy Chick-n-Strips are hand-breaded, seasoned with a variety of peppers and cooked with peanut oil. The Grilled Spicy Deluxe Sandwich features grilled chicken marinated in a spicy seasoning and is topped with Colby-Jack cheese, lettuce and tomatoes. There is an option to add Cilantro Lime Sauce for an extra kick.
The Spicy Chick-n-Strips are available in three-count or four-count entrees, and can also be ordered in catering trays. A three-count order has 340 calories and 26 grams of protein, and starts at $3.85. The Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich has 390 calories and 33 grams of protein and starts at $4.75.
Are you wondering where you can get your hands on these hot and spicy new snacks? Unfortunately, the delicious-sounding items are only available in select locations. The Spicy Chick-n-Strips will be available in Philadelphia, Central Texas and South Texas, while the Grilled Spicy Deluxe Chicken Sandwich will be available in Orlando, St. Louis and Knoxville. Both items debuted Oct. 18.
If you’re not in any of these areas, don’t despair—you may one day get your chance to try out the new items.
“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,” Patrick added. “Their feedback will help us determine whether or not we will roll out the new entrees nationwide in the future.”
