Chick-fil-A Stuns Fans, Announces New Sandwich Made with Cauliflower Not Chicken

Chick-fil-A announced today it will begin testing its first plant-based entrée, the new Cauliflower Sandwich.

Starting Monday, February 13, Chick-fil-A will be testing the Cauliflower Sandwich in three markets: Denver, Charleston, S.C., and North Carolina’s Greensboro region.

The sandwich is made from a whole, real cauliflower.

The preparation is similar to the original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich – it is marinated, breaded with a signature seasoning, pressure-cooked, and served on a toasted buttery bun with two dill pickle chips.

Stuart Tracy, culinary developer of the Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich said: “We explored every corner of the plant-based space in search of the perfect centerpiece for our plant-forward entrée.

“Time and time again, we kept returning to cauliflower as the base of our sandwich.

“After a significant amount of development, we knew we had a one-of-a-kind entrée.

“One that puts a delicious spin on what we’re known for – great tasting food with ingredients you can trust.”

Leslie Neslage, director of menu and packaging at Chick-fil-A, said: “Cauliflower is the hero of our new sandwich, and it was inspired by our original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich.

“Guests told us they wanted to add more vegetables into their diets, and they wanted a plant-forward entrée that tasted uniquely Chick-fil-A.

“Our new sandwich is made with the highest quality ingredients and whole vegetables, and we hope it offers customers another reason to dine at Chick-fil-A.”

The restaurant chain said in a statement:

The Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich was created, developed, and tested in-house by Chick-fil-A chefs who worked diligently for nearly four years finding the right ingredients and perfecting the recipe for the new sandwich.

Customers in the three test markets can check the Chick-fil-A® App or contact their local Chick-fil-A restaurant to find out if their restaurant will be participating in the test.
