Get to know the flavors of the Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich
For the first time, we’re taking our original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich and creating something completely new. Inspired by all the elements of a great sandwich — savory, salty, sweet, and spicy — the Honey Pepper Pimento Chicken Sandwich is a flavorful spin on a familiar favorite.
Watch the video and hear Chick-fil-A chef Stuart Tracy describe how combining our original filet with pickled jalapenos, pimento cheese and a drizzle of honey creates a new, flavorful sandwich we think you’ll love.
The original filet
When Truett first developed the recipe for the Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich, he asked his customers for their opinion. After testing many recipes, they finally said, “We like it. Don’t change a thing.” We agree. That’s why we knew the original filet had to be the center of the new Honey Pepper Pimento Sandwich.
We replaced the dill pickle chips in the original sandwich with pickled jalapeños, which have a mild spiciness — what Stuart calls “entry-level spice” — and pairs nicely with the pimento cheese.
This is our own special recipe, made with smoky green chili peppers and sweet roasted pimento peppers, blended with cheeses and seasonings. (Not familiar with Pimento Cheese? Take our quiz to learn more about this Southern favorite.)
A drizzle of honey
Finally, the sandwich is finished with a drizzle of honey. It’s just the right amount of sweetness to help all the other flavors come together to form a flavorful sandwich we can’t wait for you to try.
