Fast Food Review: Chick-n-Mini’s from Chick-fil-A

 Bite-sized portions seem to be the new thing in the fast food industry.  Chick-fil-A has taken this idea into mind with their delicious breakfast item, the Chick-n-Mini’s.

Is America confused?  Is bigger really better?  That doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.  I mean, just look at the burger industry.  Sliders (mini burgers) have become the hot new item.  It’s not like there is less food…just smaller sizes and bigger portions.  I’m not complaining, bring on the mini sizes but the mini sizes must bring friends.  The Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Mini is pretty simple.  They take their bite-sized Chick-fil-A chicken nugget and make it into a tiny chicken sandwich.  These little treasures come in 3 count or 4 count and can also be ordered in 20 or 40 count platter sized portions.  I bought a 40 count platter (see bottom pic) of these Mini’s for some co-workers and they were gone in a flash.

If you think chicken for breakfast is strange, try these out before you dismiss them.  Although I do prefer these Mini’s were available all day, I’ll still make the effort to pick them up at breakfast time.  They are simple, like a lot of Chick-fil-A menu items are, but they are quality breakfast fast food.  These bite-sized beauties are worth getting up early for.

  • Pros–  Very tasty, quality all-breast chicken.  The tiny rolls used to sandwich each Mini is warm, soft and coated with sweet honey butter. Good value.  
  • Cons–  Why only a 3 and 4 count?  A 4-count isn’t enough to satisfy a strong hunger.  The sweetness of the rolls can be inconsistent at times and that’s a shame.  Since the rolls of the Chick-n-Mini’s are lightly coated with honey butter spread, expect to get sticky.  Chicken can be a little on the greasy side.

  1. I agree that the “Chicken-n-Mini’s” are so good that they should be offered all day. They are more than a breakfast item, and a larger count would be ideal.

  2. I’m lovin’ the new slider fad that fast food restaurants are adopting, and this is another great example!
