Chick-fil-A is certainly bringing the heat in Arizona.
The chicken-based fast food chain is testing a few new, spicier options – for breakfast and lunch – at Phoenix, Tucson and Yuma restaurants, the company announced in a news release.
“We’re excited to spice-up the menu and see what happens in these test markets,” Matt Reed, part of the restaurant’s menu development team, said in a statement.
For breakfast, Chick-fil-A created a Spicy Chick-n-Strips Biscuit. Instead of the breaded chicken breast inside the usual popular breakfast sandwich, the spicier option has two chicken strips in between the biscuit for about $3.09.
Chick-fil-A has also added the Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich with a piece of grilled chicken marinated in a spicy seasoning, Colby-Jack cheese, lettuce and tomato inside a multigrain brioche bun to the menu. The sandwich comes in at about $4.95.
The spicy grilled sandwich is also available on its catering menu in a bundle that can feed 10 people.
Additionally, certain locations in Arizona, Texas and Philadelphia have added Spicy Chick-n-Strips to its menu. For three strips, the limited menu item is about $3.99.
Chick-fil-A is also testing chocolate brownies at certain locations in Richmond, Virginia, the Bay Area and South Florida, it said in another news release this week.
Last year, Chick-fil-A rolled out a series of meal kits with pre-measured ingredients in the Atlanta area for chicken aficionados to cook at home.
