According to 6abc, the fast food chain Chick-fil-A will be testing a brand new menu item in Philadelphia for a limited time.
Chick-fil-A’s new Spicy Chick-n-Strips will be available within participating restaurants in Philadelphia, as well as central and south Texas. According to statements made by the company, the new chicken strips will most likely be available throughout the early months of 2018 before being pulled for evaluation. The company will be looking at how both customers and the restaurants felt about the strips to decide whether or not to put them into full rotation on the menu.
Chick-fil-A described the Spicy Chick-n-Strips as such on their website: “The new Spicy Chick-n-Strips combine two customer favorites – the Spicy Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich and the original Chick-n-Strips – with a bold new entrée that’s packed with flavor. The strips are seasoned with a spicy blend of peppers, hand-breaded and cooked in 100 percent refined peanut oil.”
There is not yet an exact date as to when the strips will be put on the menu or when they will be removed for evaluation, though the company hopes they will be a success with their customers. Preliminary information has revealed that the strips can be purchased in both three count and four count sizes, as well as special catering trays. The three count will cost $3.85 before tax and has an estimated calorie count of 340 calories with 26 grams of protein.
Additionally, a similar promotion is happening right now in Orlando, Knoxville, and St. Louis, where participating locations are offering a new Grilled Spicy Deluxe Chicken Sandwich to customers. These new menu items the company is experimenting with come as a result of several studies it has performed, indicating that nearly half of their customers would like to try new chicken entrees, especially spicy ones.
