Three ways to pack in protein at every meal

In the words of Chick-fil-A Founder Truett Cathy himself, “Food is essential to life, therefore make it good.” No matter the season, the food we consume should be high-quality, tasty and fuel our bodies for activity. Many of our guests look to our chicken to help pack protein power into their days – and you can, too!

There are a lot of “pros” of eating protein, and adding more to your diet might be easier than you think.  We’re making it easy to up your protein game when you’re on-the-go. Check out how you pack protein into your breakfast, lunch or dinner at Chick-fil-A:

BREAKFAST: 37 Grams of Protein

  • Egg White Grill (25 grams of protein): A breakfast portion of grilled chicken with a hint of citrus flavor, stacked with freshly cooked egg whites and American cheese – all served on a toasted multigrain English muffin.
  • THRIVE Farmer's Coffee (0 grams of protein): Medium-roast coffee contains only hand-picked certified 100% Colombian beans.

 LUNCH: 34 Grams of Protein

  • Spicy Southwest Salad (34 grams of protein, 29 without the tortilla strips and pepitas toppings): Slices of grilled spicy chicken breast served on a fresh bed of chopped romaine lettuce and baby greens. Toppings include shredded red cabbage and carrots, grape tomatoes, a blend of Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses, and a zesty combination of poblano chiles, red bell peppers, roasted corn and black beans.
  • Chili Lime Vinaigrette Dressing (0 grams of protein): The perfect dressing to pair with our Spicy Southwest Salad – although you do have plenty other dressing options, too!
  • DASANI® Bottled Water (0 grams of protein): Round your lunch out with a cold bottle of water.

 DINNER: 45 Grams of Protein

  • Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap (38 grams of protein): Sliced grilled chicken breast, nestled in a fresh mix of green leaf lettuce, petite red and green lettuce, and shredded green cabbage with a blend of shredded Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses. Tightly rolled in a flaxseed flour flat bread, we recommend enjoying this wrap with our Avocado Lime Ranch dressing.
  • Medium Waffle Potato Fries (5 grams of protein): Our most popular side dish! These waffle-shaped potatoes are cooked in canola oil until crispy outside and tender inside.
  • Diet Coca-Cola (0 grams of protein): Crisp and refreshing, you’ll be glad you ordered this beverage with your meal.
