ATLANTA (Oct. 1, 2014) -In April, Chick-fil-A introduced a new lineup of grilled chicken entrees intended to give customers access to one of the most nutritious and expansive grilled menus across the quick-service industry. Since then, Chick-fil-A's new grilled entrees have soared in sales and given health-conscious customers something to be excited about.
"With our new grilled options, Chick-fil-A now has a countless number of meal combinations and pairings that are all under 500 calories," says Jodie Worrell, Chick-fil-A's nutrition manager. Worrell shares her favorites, all of which are easy to eat on-the-go and easy on the waistband:
Chick-fil-A's new grilled chicken recipe features an unmatched backyard grilled taste. Made from a boneless breast of fresh chicken, Chick-fil-A grilled chicken is marinated with a blend of sea salt, lemon, garlic and savory herbs, and cooked on a state-of-the-art, proprietary grill developed by Chick-fil-A. The technique creates a tender, juicy filet with just the right amount of smoky flavor. This grill sears chicken perfectly on cast-iron grates like it was cooked on a backyard grill, only faster.
