'Chick-Fil-A' on Serious Eats

From the Archives: The Homemade Chick-fil-A Sandwich

Remember last year when that whole Chick-fil-A thing happened and half the people were all like, "I'm never eating at Chick-fil-A again" and the other half were like "I'm only eating at Chick-fil-A from now on" and it turned out that most people on both sides were at least slightly lying? Yeah, it's all a bit hazy for us here too. But one good thing did come out of it: this recipe for Homemade Chick-fil-A Sandwiches. More

The Food Lab: How to Make a Chick-Fil-A Sandwich at Home

We've been hearing an awful lot about Chick-Fil-A—the Atlanta-based fried chicken sandwich fast food chain—in the news recently, and it's not been about how awesome their chicken sandwiches are, which is somewhat unfortunate, because those sandwiches are awesome. I decided to figure out how to make them at home. Here's how it's done. And yes, you can even make 'em on a Sunday. More

The Best Fast-Food Fried Chicken Sandwich?

In the fast food world, fried chicken sandwiches are the new black. Just about every chain, whether a burger chain or fried chicken establishment, offers multiple versions. But which are the best? We tried the standard fried chicken sandwiches, whether chicken patty-like or chicken fillet-like, from KFC, Popeye's, McDonald's, Chick-fil-A, Wendy's, and Burger King. During the tasting, one thing became very clear: not all chicken is created equal. More

Chick-fil-A's Spicy Chicken Sandwich

From the moment I bit into it, I knew the sandwich was good. Really good. The breast has a lot of heat, more than the comparable Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich. The poultry portion itself is smaller in size than Wendy's, but tastes much more like chicken—you really have the impression of eating a fried-up chicken breast, as opposed to some manufactured McBreast.

Poll: Do You Eat Chicken for Breakfast?

Of all the meat varieties out there—sausage, ham, bacon, even steak—for some reason, chicken was never really invited to the breakfast party. Sure, there's chicken sausage, and a few fast-fooderies do chicken biscuit sandwiches (and we can't forget Chick Fil-A's Chick-N-Minis), but still. Chicken and breakfast have never been great pals. I guess you could argue that eggs come from the cluck-cluckers, but again, that doesn't really count. Do you believe chicken is underrepresented in the breakfast genre? How often do you eat it for breakfast? Take the poll! » More

iVillage Knocks off the Chick-fil-A Lettering?

Silicon Alley Insider points us to the redesigned logo for iVillage, the interactive women's website. Hmm, why does it make us suddenly crave chicken sandwiches and waffle fries from a mall food court? All they forgot was the feather crest and beak.

Chick-fil-A Opening in the East Village?

The Eater blog is trafficking in self-admitted "unconfirmed reckless plywood rumormongering," but reports nonetheless that a large number of Chick-fil-A people were seen entering and exiting an empty storefront on East 6th Street between avenues A and B. Could it... More

McDonald's Says Eat More Chicken For Breakfast

McDonald's Southern-style chicken biscuit tastes like an oversized McNugget in a buttery, greasy biscuit that you've had so many times before. It's too late to snag a free Southern-style chicken biscuit from McDonald's—the breakfast promotion lasted today between 7 a.m and 10:30 a.m—but if you missed out, don't worry; it wasn't totally free. As we mentioned before, there was a medium or large drink caveat, so the "freebie" cashed in at a minimum of $1.50. Overall, it wasn't the most mind-blowing experience since McDonald's already sells biscuits and chicken McNuggets, and together, they approximate this same taste concept. But borderline mind-blowing is that you can eat fried chicken for breakfast without hauling to a less-accessible Chick-fil-A or sneaking in last... More

Throwdown: Chick-fil-A vs. McDonald's Southern Style Chicken

As the blog Midtown Lunch pointed out, one difference between Chick and Mick is bag vs. box. -->McDonald's Southern Style Chicken Sandwich hit New York City recently, and since it's designed to compete with the Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich, right down to the two--and only two--sliced pickles, we thought we'd grab both and do a head-to-head comparison. The results, after the jump.... More

Serious Sandwiches: Chick-Fil-A's Chick-n-Minis

When it comes to tiny sandwiches, my devotion is huge. I love tea sandwiches in all forms. I'm totally in favor of the slider trend that's been rolling across the country the last couple of years. Heck, I even started a burger blog pretty much as an excuse to talk about White Castle and its awesome sliders. So when I saw the Chick-n-Minis at Chick-Fil-A while visiting my parents last week in suburban Kansas City, I was all over them.... More
