Launched in 1985, Chick-fil-A’s Chicken Biscuit sandwich was part of a plan to offer the great taste of the chain’s chicken throughout the entire day. Not just during lunch and dinner.
They wanted to sell chicken fillet sandwiches for breakfast, and the biscuit helped them succeed in the breakfast category.
The biscuit is flaky and tender, but strong enough to hold on to the chicken. “It just hugs the chicken,” says Jonson, a Chick-fil-A employee who has been working at the chicken chain since 1999.
According to Jonson, the recipe has been the same since 1985, with only one change, and that was trans fats removal because of customer feedback.
