The Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich features an original Chick-fil-A filet, topped with custom-made creamy pimento cheese, mild pickled jalapeños and served on a warm, toasted bun drizzled with sweet honey.
When considering the perfect accompaniments to the Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, Chick-fil-A Chef Stuart Tracy considered some of the popular components of a standout sandwich: savory, melty with just the right amount of salt and sweet to balance. With these elements in mind, he chose three ingredients to take the original in a new direction:
- Pimento Cheese: Custom-made by Chick-fil-A, the combination of sharp cheddar cheese, green chilis and red pimentos work together to create a savory, melty spread atop the original Chick-fil-A filet.
- Jalapeños: Never before used in a Chick-fil-A entrée and sourced especially for the brand’s menu item, the mildly pickled jalapeños deliver just enough heat to balance the sweet and salty flavors.
- Honey: Sweet and smooth, the drizzle of honey on our warm toasted bun adds a subtly sweet flavor to tie everything together.
You can find the new Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich at participating locations nationwide for a limited time starting August 28, 2023 – while supplies last.
