Chick-fil-A’s New Grilled Chicken Recipe with Backyard Grilled Taste
It was officially announced today that on April 14th, Chick-fil-A will roll-out its new grilled chicken recipe nationwide with three featured entrees – the Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich and Chick-fil-A Grilled Nuggets. The new chicken marinade includes sea salt, lemon, garlic and savory herbs.
Chick-fil-A’s new recipe features an unmatched backyard grilled taste. Each grilled chicken breast is freshly marinated with a blend of sea salt, lemon, garlic and savory herbs, and cooked on a state-of-the-art, proprietary grill developed by Chick-fil-A. The technique creates a tender, juicy filet with just the right amount of 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. This grill sears chicken perfectly on cast-iron grates like it was cooked on a backyard grill, only faster.
