I Heart Chick-Fil-A {Givewaway}

***This giveaway is now closed***

On the rare occasion we eat fast food we always prefer Chick-Fil-A.  It’s one fast food restaurant I fell in love with when I moved to Utah over six years ago.  We didn’t have one where I grew up nor where I went to college, but there’s a couple here in Utah and Utah folk are crazy for some Chick-Fil-A!  There’s one just five minutes from my house and on any given day of the week it’s jam packed.  Swarming with moms and kids–it’s the best lunch play date!

I’ve always loved how fresh their food tastes, especially their chicken.  Ohhh the chicken is so good. Nine times out of ten I order the chicken nuggets along with my three year old:) But Chick-Fil-A just came out with some fresh new salads that I love!  And a few weeks ago, the restaurant hosted ten of me and my girlfriends for a Salad Tasting Party.  

We toured the kitchen (I can’t believe how clean it was), learned all about how FRESH their food is, and had fun sampling each of the new salads along with anything else on the menu!  Did you know that all of their chicken is made fresh daily?  I love that, no wonder it tastes so good. chickfilacollageHere’s a look at each of the salads….   

 Chick-fil-A Cobb Salad: Chick-fil-A Nuggets, pressure-cooked, sliced and served hot on a fresh bed of chopped romaine lettuce and baby greens, topped with shredded red cabbage and carrots, roasted corn kernels, a blend of shredded Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, crumbled bacon, diced eggs and grape tomatoes. Made fresh daily. Served with Charred Tomato Crispy Red Bell Peppers and Avocado Lime Ranch dressing (or guest’s choice of dressing). The salad is 430 calories and contains 39 grams of protein. 

 Chick-fil-A Asian Salad: Chick-fil-A Nuggets, pressure-cooked, sliced and served hot on a fresh bed of chopped romaine lettuce and baby greens, topped with shredded red and green cabbage, carrots and mandarin orange segments.

  2. Patti Foster says

    I haven’t tried the salads just yet….I’ve always loved Asian Salads wherever I go, so I am looking forward to trying them here.

  3. Juli B. says

    We love Chik Fil A…..Nothing else like it…..of course, I grew up eating them since they started here in Atlanta. These salads look soooo good, I cant wait to try them!!

  4. Maren says

    I’ve tried the Cobb salad (my husband brought it home for me), but I’m not a fan of bell peppers or eggs on my salad. I wish you could ask for certain things to be left off, but they don’t allow that. Oh, well. I love Chick-fil-a nonetheless. :)

  5. Amy says

    I love Chick-fil-a too!!! I like the grilled market salad best as well. We missed them when we lived out of Utah and are excited to be back!

  6. Ashley says

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Chik-fil-a. To the pt that I want to franchise it in the Northeast! I get it EVERY single trip I visit my home in the south and it’s a must to get chicken biscuits at least once a weekend! Can’t wait to try the new salads- their old ones were great so guessing these must be even better :)

    We love Chick-fil-a and were so excited when they finally built free standing (not in mall food court) restaurants in Missouri. Unfortunately, once the chain owner made it clear that the company is anti-human rights we can no longer eat there. I believe that we teach our children by example. My family has a number of gay and lesbian friends who we support in their fight for basic human rights in America.

  8. Sarah D. says

    I’m a HUGE CFA fan, but I haven’t tried any of the salads yet. I am really eager to try them! I think that my first choice to try is going to be your favorite – the Market Salad. It looks soooooo good!

  9. Megan says

    We love Chick-fil-A! I love their chicken & fresh fruit salad, and our pickiest eater (who does not usually like chicken) LOVES their nuggets. I’d love to win! =)

  10. says

    I have not tried the salad. My standby favorite has always been the grilled chicken wrap with no dressing. Absolutely a wonderful meal, fresh and tasty and low in bad stuff. I’d probably favor the grilled chicken salad.

    On another note, when you just need some comfort food, those chicken fingers and a chocolate brownie bring you back to sanity very fast.

  14. Lauren M. says

    The salads sound delicious! I would love to try their new Cobb salad. I usually order salads when I go there so I can’t wait to try these out!

  15. Stephanie says

    I drive 20 mins to the closest Chick-fil-a as often as possible…the line is always long but it is ALWAYS worth the wait! These new salads look amazing!! :)

  16. Jessica says

    I love chic-fil-a ! Those salads look so yummy. Of course I don’t think I could go to chic-fil-a without getting french fries to go with my salad!

  17. Heather F. says

    Yummy! I LOVE Chick-fil-a! Their waffle fries are oh so good, but I am totally willing and excited to try one of their salads!

  18. says

    Love Chick-Fil-A! My 3 year old son actually refers to ALL fast food as Chick FIl A because we so frequently go there. :)

  19. Marysue says

    I love Chick-Fil-A…haven’t tried the salads yet, but the Asian would be first on my list. My favorite thing is the classic sandwich…unbeatable!

  20. Bonnie says

    My family and I love Chick-fil-a. It is our fast food restaurant of choice. I love their food, especially their spicy chicken. Their new salads look delicious!

  21. Katie says

    I’m pretty sure if I could eat Chicken-Fil-A for every meal I would and probably bathe in their delicious sweet tea….. And yes I know it’s “Chick”-fil-a buuuut I like to say Chicken-Fil-A better (maybe its a Texas thing?)

  22. Jennifer says

    LOVE Chick-Fil-A! We never had one until AFTER I went to college. Came back, and one had sprung up about 1/2 hour from my house. And, yes, we will sometimes drive that 1/2 hour JUST for Chick-Fil-A. It’s worth it. ;)

  23. Breanna says

    We lived in Utah our whole lives and never ate at Chick-fil-a.
    We moved to Mississippi this year and tried it one day and have been fans ever since. My kids LOVE it.
    We went just last week and I decided to get the Cobb Salad. (I never order salads… especially at a fast food restaurant) But I LOVED it. I have been craving another one since then! We are Big Chick-fil-a fans now!

  24. says

    I love their chicken too. It’s actually a real piece of chicken, instead of being ground up and scary like other fast food restaurants.

  25. Erica says

    Just found your blog through pintrest and though I traditionally don’t mix food with politics, I was bothered by this post. I don’t know if you realize this, but Chick-fil-a is anti-LGBT to the extreme and has donated money to the Family Research Council, which also advocates that homosexual individuals do not receive equal treatment under the law. In fact, this organization lobbied to have language which expressess that homosexual individuals are entitled to human rights protections, REMOVED from a Congressional resolution that condemned a bill in Uganda that promotes killing and or jailing homosexual individuals–in other words a bill that denies human rights protections to homosexual individuals. Even if you don’t agree with gay marriage, supporting a company that supports an organization who denies that homosexuals are entitled to basic human rights protections, including the right to live, looks really bad and is not right. If you didn’t know about this, now you know and can hopefully make better decisions in the future as to the kinds of food companies you support in the future.
