Chick Fil A bun?

I have to admit I get an occasional Chick Fil A craving and usually get a sandwich and a few nuggets but generally abandon the bun because I mostly enjoy the crispy bits on the chicken. I am just wondering though, is the bun just a standard hamburger bun with butter or is there something more to it?

  1. This is how the basic chicken sandwich is described on their site under the "Menu & Nutrition" tab.

    "A boneless breast of chicken seasoned to perfection, hand-breaded, pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut oil and served on a toasted, buttered bun with dill pickle chips. Also available on a Golden Wheat bun."

      Well, yes that is the sandwich. I guess my question was if the bun is anything special as to me it seems like a standard hamburger bun with butter on it (the regular bun not the golden wheat bun)

        I would think they would mention it if the bun was something special. Would be a selling/marketing point.

    2. It is a standard hamburger bun, sometimes a little steamed depending on how long it has been in the little foil bag, and almost always a little greasy on the outside with oil from the chicken that gets transferred during assembly.
