ATLANTA — Chick-fil-A on Jan. 10 will launch a Spicy Chicken Biscuit to its breakfast menu to complement the Spicy Chicken Sandwich Chick-fil-A added to its lunch and dinner menus in June.

The Spicy Chicken Biscuit features hand-breaded boneless breast of chicken seasoned with a blend of peppers and spices, pressure-cooked in 100% refined peanut oil and served on a buttermilk biscuit. The biscuit starts at $2.25 as an entree and also is offered as part of a Chick-fil-A Breakfast Meal, which includes a beverage and an order of hash browns or other side item, starting at $4.09.

“Customers began asking for a spicy version of our hero breakfast offering, the Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit, as soon as our Spicy Chicken Sandwich hit menu boards in June, and the demand for spicy products in general continues to grow,” said Woody Faulk, vice-president of brand strategy and design, who is responsible for Chick-fil-A’s menu. “The Spicy Biscuit will give our customers the option to start their day with something truly different, and certainly a whole lot ‘hotter,’ as we continue to expand and vary our breakfast menu. The Spicy Biscuit will give customers another reason to visit Chick-fil-A for breakfast — a day-part that continues to grow.”
