Luckily, indulging in a hearty and filling breakfast doesn’t have to equal an hour in the kitchen every morning, as fast food joints have seriously upgraded their breakfast menus in the past few years. Chick-fil-A in particular has expanded and improved its breakfast menu, featuring everything from protein-rich yogurt with granola to chicken and egg burritos, and their signature chicken on a multigrain bagel.
Chick-fil-A has also taken into account the importance of offering plenty of healthy options, like their fruit cups and Egg White Grill. Where you used to only be given the choice between two or three sandwiches, you now have several options that are delicious, yet still keep things light. Next time you swing by during sunrise (or 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.), consider the 12 most popular items on the Chick-Fil-A breakfast menu.
Chick-fil-A’s Chick-N-Minis are essentially the breakfast sandwich version of their chicken nuggets (and who secretly doesn’t want chicken nuggets for breakfast?). These bites are perfect when you’re on the go, as you can simply pop them into your mouth without much hassle. Pair with a fruit cup side for a dose of vitamins.
The Chicken, Egg, and Cheese Bagel is a hearty option that will keep you feeling full for hours. Complete with Chick-fil-A’s signature chicken, warm egg, and melted cheese atop a multigrain bagel, it’s a great way to start your morning with a win.
If you’re watching your fat or cholesterol intake (or simply looking for a lighter and leaner option) reach for the Egg White Grill. This sandwich features grilled chicken instead of fried, as well as egg whites to reduce the fat total. Drop the cheese for an even leaner option, and pair with a fruit cup.
4. Fruit Cup
The fruit cup is an excellent way to get your daily dose of antioxidants and vitamins alongside any breakfast item. You can order it standalone or as a side in place of hash browns to reduce the calories and fats in your meal.
Feigning a burrito breakfast? Chick-fil-A even has you covered there, stuffing a flour tortilla with hash browns, scrambled eggs, cheese, and your choice of protein. You can choose from grilled fillet, nuggets, or sausage, and each burrito comes with the restaurant’s signature jalapeño salsa. Convenient and hearty, this one is another good one to eat on the go.
Sometimes nostalgia creeps in in the form of food cravings. Say, like when you get that old familiar taste for grandma’s biscuits. Chick-fil-A’s buttered biscuits satisfy the urge for homemade comfort food, to go.
7. Hash Browns
Hash browns are the iconic breakfast side – almost every meal seems incomplete without their crunchy, buttery goodness. Add them to a meal, or eat them as a standalone.
8. Hash Brown Scramble Bowl
If you’re not in the mood for a burrito, you’ll love the bowl version of the Hash Brown Scramble. It comes complete with scrambled eggs, hash browns, a cheese blend, jalepeño salsa, and your protein choice. Just like the burrito, you can add nuggets, grilled filet, or sausage to the bowl.
Chick-fil-A’s Chicken Biscuit keeps breakfast simple but definitely still flavorful. If you’re feigning chicken but still want breakfast-style bread, order them stacked together in the form of this delight.
Healthy meets filling in Chick-fil-A’s Greek Yogurt Parfait. Protein-rich yogurt is layered with healthy Harvest granola and berries so you can feel light and energized throughout your day. Pair it with an extra fruit cup for an additional antioxidant blast.
Sometimes you just need the classic taste of bacon in the morning…but you might also be craving a sandwich and biscuits. If you don’t have time to sit down to a plated meal of all of the above, order Chick-fil-A’s Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Biscuit, and get it all wrapped into one.
If you’d prefer this sandwich on an English Muffin, order the Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Muffin.
This is another Chick-fil-A sandwich option that combines all the positives – protein in the form of a sausage patty, melted cheese for extra flavor, a nutrient-rich egg, and a filling biscuit. Order up this favorite and pair it with a fruit cup or hash browns for a well-rounded meal.
You can also order this sandwich as a Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Muffin.
13. Sunflower Multigrain Bagel
Sometimes, all you need is a simple breakfast to get your morning started on the right foot. This toasted multigrain bagel is an excellent choice if you want something light, yet filling. Order it with or without cream cheese.
14. English Muffin
There’s nothing better than a warm English Muffin and a coffee. If you’re not feeling a breakfast sandwich, opt for a plain toasted muffin, or pair it with some fruit or a parfait.
