Feeding the family isn't always easy, but one chicken chain is entering the family-style meal game in a few markets around the U.S. Chick-fil-A announced it began testing family-style meals -- but only at a select few stores.
Diners in Greensboro, North Carolina, Phoenix, Arizona, and San Antonio, Texas, can get their hands on Chick-fil-A's new Family Style Meals, which include one entree, two sides and eight mini rolls, for $29.99 -- not bad for a family of four.
Entree options include 12 Chick-n-Strips, four original Chick-fil-A Chicken Breasts, 30 nuggets or four Grilled Chicken Breasts.
Side options include a fruit bowl, waffle potato chips, side salads, a "Superfood Side" -- kale and broccolini with dried cherries, nuts and maple-vinaigrette dressing -- or the chain's new Mac & Cheese and Bacon Baked Beans.
The meal also includes plates, utensils and condiments, making cleanup a breeze, and additional sides, entrees and beverages may be added for an additional charge.
As the company said in a press release,
"Let's face it. When schedules get crazy, making time for family dinner becomes more difficult. But Chick-fil-A's Family Style Meals now make it easier for you to spend time with those who matter most. It's a meal kit designed by parents (who worked directly with Chick-fil-A) for parents and other groups looking for an easier way to get meals to-go and connect while they're eating together."
These Family Style Meals are available through Nov. 18; after that, there's no official word when or if they'll make their way to the national menu.
