New Grilled Chicken Entrees from Chick-fil-A (+ Giveaway!)

Category : contest, Featured, Uncategorized

 photo chickfilanewgrilledchicken2_zps0e709ccc.jpgDid you know that Chick-fil-A has new grilled chicken entrees? Honestly, I always thought their grilled chicken was pretty good, but it seems they’ve upped their game, working for seven years to develop a new flavor. Each grilled chicken breast is now freshly marinated with a blend of sea salt, lemon, garlic and savory herbs, and cooked on a state-of-the-art, super-secret grill developed by Chick-fil-A. The technique creates a tender, juicy filet with just the right amount of smoky flavor.

And now you can try the new grilled chicken entrees for yourself! 15 lucky Fort Worth on the Cheap readers will each receive a card good for one free grilled chicken item in May, June and July. In May, you’ll receive the Grilled Chicken Sandwich; in June, the Grilled Chicken Club Sandwich; and in July, your choice of the two.

To enter, fill out the form below. One entry per person. Texas residents only. Winners will be drawn May 13 at noon. Must be 18 to enter. Good luck!
