Chick-fil-A Just Announced a New Chicken Sandwich

It even comes with a special sauce!
FACT CHECKED BY Faye Brennan

Our mouths are watering just thinking about Chick-fil-A's newest grilled chicken sandwich. The limited-time-only Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich will land in select Chick-fil-A restaurants starting Jan. 25 and it's one you don't want to miss out on.

The new spicy chicken sandwich will give you all the same taste and vibes as the other spicy selections on the menu, but now in a grilled option so you can avoid any extra grease. The chicken is grilled in Chick-fil-A's spicy seasoning before being served on a multigrain bun with tomato, lettuce, and cheese. If you think the sandwich still sounds a little naked, you'll be happy to know that Chick-fil-A is also rolling out a Cilantro Lime Sauce designed specifically to go with this sandwich.

The cilantro and lime flavors perfectly complement the spice blend used on the chicken to bring a certain level of coolness to your dining experience. (Related: Chick-fil-A Menu Items Nutritionists Order)

Chick-fil-A began testing grilled offerings back in 2017 in certain markets, and thanks to the overwhelmingly positive feedback, the chain decided to roll out this new spicy grilled option. Though Chick-fil-A hasn't yet provided nutritional info for the new grilled sandwich, we do know that the plain grilled chicken sandwich currently on the menu clocks in at 320 calories. Keep in mind, though, that this sandwich doesn't have cheese on it, but the spicy option does.

To cut back on the calories, you can opt to remove the cheese from the sandwich or even forego the bun. After all, the chicken is the true star of this dish! The Cilantro Lime Sauce will also add extra calories to your meal, and while we're sure it's delicious, we know for a fact that the chicken's spice blend carries enough flavor that the extra sauce is truly just that — extra.

If you're in a place, though, where it's time for a treat meal, the Chick-fil-A Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich as it comes is still a fairly nutritious option that will make your stomach and your taste buds happy. Check your local Chick-fil-A starting Jan. 25 to see if the new sandwich is available to you.
