It's so simple, but oh so good. The Chick-Fil-A sandwich.

I've been on a Chick-Fil-A kick (this happens to me often with lunch, I get hooked on something and eat it a couple of times a week for a period of time) and man, that's a good chicken sandwich.

It isn't fancy, but just well done. Buttery bun, crispy juicy chicken with a nice spiced breading and pickles (I think the pickles are key <g>).

With a diet lemonade, it's a fine lunch and only $4.

  1. Hey i may go there today.Want to make a trip to Home Depot to get a kit to repair the front screen door.My two kitties like to jump on it,so now it's torn.
    I'll just get a sandwich and can buy a soda at work for 75cents.The Chick-Fil-A in the Forum at olypmia Parkway in Selma,Texas by me often has coupons like buy a dinner or lunch combo and get a sandwich free.

    1. I love the Chik-Fil-A sandwich. You're right...the pickles totally make the sandwich. I add mayo to mine and it's a great lunch. I also like that they serve waffle fries. There's a standalone store near our new house and I can't wait to move so I can go there whenever a craving strikes.

      1. I don't even like chicken and I will go out of my way for a Chick-Fil-A sandwich. They were out of pickles one time and I was amazed at the difference. Gotta have the pickles.

        1. I like it too, but I don't think the butter on the bun is a neccessity. It tastes the same without. Unfortunately, there are no Chick-Fil-A's where I currently live.

          1. I rate it as one of the few places you can not drag me to eat. My wife loves it and took me there once. Once was enough. Flacid tasteless chicken, soggy tomato and an embarassing piece of lettuce. I think I licked the mayo off the bun and called it lunch.

              Did you get the grilled sandwich by any chance? If so you should have stuck with the original, which is breaded and served with only pickles, no lettuce or tomato.

                I would suspect it was the grilled. It was so bad I'm never going back.

                Did it come w/ mayo on it?!? Never seen that before at any location. (although i love their mayo that comes in the little foil packets)

                It sounds like you had a grilled one, which are NOT good. Having eaten at several places that everyone else loved that I hated and swore I'd never try a second time, I feel your pain...but you really oughta try the "real" one.

                  The other problem is, I live in Canada and when at the inlaws there's way too much stuff I'd rather eat. So I really don't have the time to go there either.

                  I've been there once a long time ago. I had either the chicken strips or nuggets and thought the breading was far too sweet. Liked the waffle fries.
