Just in time to kick off the new school year, Chick-fil-A is introducing two new hearty breakfast options made fresh each morning: the Hash Brown Scramble Bowl and Hash Brown Scramble Burrito. These all-in-one breakfasts combine crispy hash browns topped with scrambled eggs and cheese and your choice of sausage or sliced Chick-fil-A® Nuggets. This meal is available as a bowl or burrito rolled in a warm flour tortilla, and is served with jalapeño salsa on the side.

Chick-fil-A Says Goodbye to Cole Slaw!

Chick-fil-A ® has made the difficult decision to remove Cole Slaw from the menu on January 18th. Many customers love the Cole Slaw, yet Chick-fil-A® has also heard from customers that they are looking for new tastes and healthier ways to eat in their restaurants. To provide this variety, means Chick-fil-A® will occasionally have to remove items from their menu. Check out this link for Chick-fil-A’s tribute to Cole Slaw…and the recipe!

Chick-fil-A® will soon be one of the first fast food restaurants in the industry to add “superfoods” like kale and Broccolini®, to its menu. Just in time to keep New Year’s resolutions, customers nationwide can order the low-calorie Superfood Side starting on January 18.

Kale Chick-fil-A

The gourmet side was developed in collaboration with James Beard Award Nominee and Atlanta-based chef, Ford Fry of Ford Fry Restaurants.

The Superfood Side is made with a blend of hand-chopped kale and Broccolini, tossed in a sweet and tangy maple vinaigrette dressing and topped with flavorful dried sour cherries. It is served with a blend of roasted nuts (walnuts, almonds and pecans) that enhances the flavor and provides added crunch.

“I really enjoyed working with the culinary team from Chick-fil-A on incorporating ingredients that are unique to the industry,” said Fry. “We know that it can be challenging to eat healthy on-the-go, so we wanted to create something that customers will love eating that’s also nutritious.”

The side is available in 5 or 8-ounce servings, and priced starting at $2.59 for the 5 oz. and $3.79 for the 8 oz. portion. The Superfood Side will also be offered as a substitution in any combo meal for an upcharge of 94 cents.
