Prepared at our restaurants using the same tried-and-true recipe that our founder created in 1964, the Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich is often hailed as a modern classic and remains our most popular entrée. In its classic form with two pickes on a buttered bun, the sandwich is near and dear to our hearts, but we wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to try and shake things up!
Everyone has a favorite go-to Chick-fil-A meal. Perhaps Chick-n-Minis help you shake your snooze-button blues. Or the Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich fills your lunch with joy. Maybe you’re a little more calm and collected with a Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap in-hand.
The list of our most popular menu items may come as a surprise. While we’re best-known for the Original Chicken Sandwich (and it’s the most popular sandwich on the menu), its savory sidekick, Waffle Fries, take the crown for the most ordered item on the menu.
When Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy invented what is now known as the Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich in 1964, he had no idea it would stand the test of time and still be a favorite today.
Since its debut in 1964, the original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich has been a hit with millions of people nationwide. What’s the secret to its popularity? While it seems simple – just a lightly breaded chicken breast with two pickles between a toasted, buttered bun – every part of the Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich is truly an original. And it all goes back to the creation of the sandwich more than 50 years ago.
