Would you try this meatless chicken sandwich?
Chick-fil-A has started selling a new, chickenless sandwich at some of its locations. The new menu item is called the Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich, and as its name suggests, it's made with a cauliflower filet instead of chicken.
"It's seasoned with the same familiar flavors and pressure cooked like the chicken sandwich to give it that special Chick-fil-A taste guests have come to know and love," Stuart Tracy, Chick-fil-A's principal culinary developer, said in a statement.
Tracy said he created the first version of the cauliflower sandwich in 2018 after the restaurant's research showed customers wanted to add more vegetables to their diets.
"Our culinary team brainstormed and explored everything," he said. "We kept coming back to the cauliflower filet."
This might not be the sandwich for people looking for a vegan or vegetarian option, though. Chick-fil-A said milk and eggs are used to prepare the new sandwich, and Chick-fil-A doesn't designate vegetarian-only preparation surfaces at its restaurants.
The new cauliflower sandwich is available in Denver; Charleston, South Carolina; and North Carolina's Greensboro-Triad region.
Chick-fil-A is the latest fast-food chain to try plant-based meat alternatives. McDonald's, Burger King and Jack in the Box have all recently introduced such options.
