The new Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken Biscuit

Posted By on Thu, Jan 6, 2011 at 5:07 PM

Following the roll out of their Spicy Chicken Sandwich last year, Chick-fil-A now presents us with the Spicy Chicken Biscuit. The new menu item features a buttermilk biscuit with a spicy boneless breast of chicken sandwiched inside. It officially hits menus Monday, Jan. 10.

The Chick-fil-A team stopped by Creative Loafing this morning and dropped off some biscuits for us to sample.

I thought the biscuit was pretty good. I appreciate the hearty amount of spice they added. Sure, some claimed their mouths were on fire, and some bites were spicier than others, but I loved every flaming bite. The biscuit was tad mushy, but I'm sure it was due to the fact that we had 20 biscuits piled in a bag and hand-delivered to us.

I've never tried the Bojangle's spicy chicken biscuit (gasp!), so I can't compare.

Here's what others thought:

"I never thought I'd never love a spicy chicken biscuit more than the one at Bojangles. It wasn't so spicy at first but now i'm like 'yowch'ah' yahooooo. I ? chickfila." - Heather Desmond, operations manager

"I like spicy food, so I like it better than the regular chicken biscuit." - Carlton Hargro, editor-in-chief

"The chicken was good spicy and tender. But the biscuit was too soft ... smushed up." - Kim Lawson, operations editor
