We’d argue that Chick-fil-A is popular everywhere. When it comes down to data, though, certain cities eat more of their chicken-focused goodness than others. Out of all American cities, 10 cities ordered more original chicken sandwiches in 2016 than the rest. And, on top of that, it’s known that that chicken sandwich is Chick-fil-A’s third most popular item. Ninth on that list of cities is Los Angeles, and the number one spot went to Atlanta.
With that in mind, Chick-fil-A’s Chicken Wire looked into restaurants in L.A. and Atlanta to gain some more insight. They wanted to know what Chick-fil-A team members order, as well as their insider tips.
1. Best Savory Breakfast: Egg White Grill
Menu Hack: Add strawberry jelly.
Protein is an important macronutrient for most active humans. The Chick-fil-A team members interviewed don’t disagree, citing the Egg White Grill as the best breakfast. It’s easy to grab on-the-go, is packed with flavor, and also has a whopping 25 grams of valuable protein.
Want to take that relatively healthy breakfast, add some sugar, and make it a whole new monster? One employee suggests adding strawberry jelly as an insider tip.
2. Best Sweet Breakfast: Greek Yogurt Parfait
Menu Hack: Add chocolate chip cookie crumbs.
Want some real sweet in your morning, not just jelly on a savory sandwich? Employees suggest the Greek Yogurt Parfait. The insider tip on this one is to add in chocolate cookie crumbs and some granola. Does your sweet tooth ache yet?
3. Best Quick Lunch: Chicken Nuggets
Menu Hack: Mix BBQ and honey mustard sauces.
Lunch, without question, is the busiest time to be a Chick-fil-A employee. Chicken Nuggets not only taste great, but they’ll also sustain you through the midday rush. Plus, they’re easy to eat.
4. Best Protein-Packed Lunch: Original Chicken Sandwich
Menu Hack: Add pepper jack cheese.
The Original Chicken Sandwich is another good option at noon. Have you ever added pepper jack cheese? Team members say it’s the bee’s knees. (We’re glad it’s not the bee’s cheese because, well, that’d just be confusing.)
5. The Best Way to End the Day: Frosted Coffee
Menu Hack: Add whipped cream.
How do Chick-fil-A team members end the day? Some end it with more protein, grabbing some Grilled Nuggets.
Others like something more refreshing like the Frosted Coffee. Feeling brave? Add whipped cream to that frosted treat, turning it into a proper dessert.
