    I had mine last week. I thought it worked well on a wheat bun with mustard :)

  2. I wish we had Chick-fil-A here, it always looks so damn good, mind you I kinda question the pickles on chicken

  3. Yum Yucky says:

    Ooo. Wait until I tell my husband. He’s gonna freak out real happy.

  4. Ben says:

    Skip the pickle, and add the pepperjack and I’m there. Sounds great. Oh wait, we don’t have Chick-fil-A in Michigan. Why not????

  5. Michael says:

    I’m not one of those sodium alarmists, but dear lord, that’s practically your entire daily allowance of the stuff in a sandwich that isn’t even all that big.

    so lame that there isnt a chick-fil-a anywhere near nyc. lot of hungry chicken lovers in these parts too ya know

    Eating spicy breaded chicken is almost like a heavenly experience for me. As someone who lives in CT, I only get the opportunity to visit Chick-Fil-A when I visit Philadelphia (once a month). NYU does have one in the Weinstein Food Court but it relies on heat lamps and is rather inauthentic.

    You have to have the pickle, it is what makes a Chick-fil-A a Chick-fil-A.

    The pickle may not seem to fit, but much like with a Cuban sandwich, once you eat it you’ll think “Yup, it just wouldn’t be the same without the pickle.”

    I don’t even like pickles but in a Chick-fil-A it is sheer perfection.

      I agree w the pickle for the Original Chicken Sandwich but to me it doesn’t go too well w the Spicy version.

    • m says:

      I agree, the pickle makes the Original sandwich … not sure what it’ll do for the spicy version. Hmmmm … how soon before I can get me some Chick-fil-A?

  9. Mikey says:

    Eating one now. Got mine plain, as I always hated the fact they need to put pickles on everything. Sigh @ the local CFA was offering free small shake with spicy sandwich purchase, but they never offered it to me directly. (If I’d really wanted one I would have asked for it I suppose). Overall, not bad. The piece of chicken looks like hell, and maybe have been left over from last week but still good lol

    I reserved a free sandwich, but I didn’t make it to the next town over that day. I am going on Thursday, so I plan to try this. I love, love, love Chick-Fila and I can’t wait to try it! I also LOVE their carrot and raisin salad! I always buy an extra one to take home with me!
