Chick-fil-A franchise / Chick-fil-A handout
Move over, waffle fries. Chick-fil-A now has real waffles on its menu.
The fast-food chain is test marketing six new breakfast options - including the much-loved Southern pairing, chicken and waffles, to catch the attention of early risers in four U.S. regions.
Here's a full list of the items being tested:
â?¢ Cinnamon Swirls
â?¢ Maple Waffle
â?¢ Chicken & Waffle
â?¢ Egg White Chicken Grill
â?¢ Greek Yogurt Parfait
â?¢ Multigrain Oatmeal with Fresh Fruit
Chicken and waffles are described by Chick-fil-A as, "The perfect sweet and savory start to the day. A breakfast portion of our famous boneless breast of chicken, seasoned to perfection, hand-breaded, pressure cooked in 100% refined peanut oil and served alongside a warm Belgian-style waffle with a unique caramelized sugar crunch. Baked with maple syrup inside â?? no additional syrup required. Served with choice of honey or Buffalo Sauce."
Dishes are only available right now in Middle Georgia, Inland Empire, Calif., Memphis and greater Philadelphia.
Chick-fil-A plans to roll out all or some of the new items nationally as early as late next year, Mark Baldwin, a spokesman for Chick-fil-A told USA TODAY Network.
"We may choose to only add the products that customers crave the most," Baldwin wrote in a statement.
Chick-fil-A would become the latest fast-food chain to ramp up its breakfast options.
In March, Taco Bell unveiled its Waffle Taco, A.M. Crunchwrap and Cinnabon Delights with a humorously malicious anti-McDonalds TV and social media advertising campaign. (Who can forget the infamous Ronald McDonald commercial?)
