Today was my first time eating at a Chick-fil-A, which is surprising because I love chicken sandwiches. Perhaps their advertisements never clicked with me (their commercials consist of cows redirecting human interest to eat chickens instead of cows). My wife, however, had eaten at Chick-fil-A before and missed it, so we made it our goal to go to one. She also has a good habit of eating chicken over beef, whereas I'll usually eat red meat whenever it's available (less so now, thanks to her).

Spicy Chicken Sandwich

For my first Chick-fil-A experience, I started with a Spicy Chicken Sandwich. It tasted great, but was hardly spice, mostly just a little spicy during the initial bites. As I ate it, I thought it would have been nice if I had asked for more pickles.

Menu Description:
Spicy Chicken Sandwich A boneless breast of chicken seasoned with a spicy blend of peppers, hand-breaded, pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut oil and served on a toasted, buttered bun with dill pickle chips. Gluten-free bun or multigrain bun also available at an additional cost.

The sandwich well with the Chick-fil-A sauce.

Chick-fil-A Sauce Our classic dipping sauce with notes of honey mustard and a smoky tang.

In addition to the sandwich, I also had some Chick-fil-A Nuggets. They were also good with the Chick-fil-A sauce, but they tasted better with the Sweet & Spicy Sriracha sauce.

Grilled Chicken Sandwich

Menu Description:
Chick-fil-A Nuggets Bite-sized pieces of tender all breast meat chicken, seasoned to perfection, hand-breaded and pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut oil.

In general, I compared eating the nuggets to eating short chicken strips. Furthermore, this meant they tasted like real chicken, as opposed to the mysterious meat contained in the Chicken McNuggets at McDonald's. 4:15 PM PT

Menu Description:
Sriracha Sauce A sweet and tangy sauce made with chili peppers for a spicy twist.
