Day 33 – Working My Way thru the Menu: Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Minis Breakfast Meal


Ah, Day 33.

I’m trying to figure out the best thing about a Chick-fil-A breakfast over lunch/dinner.

1) An excuse to go to Chick-fil-A during my favorite part of the day.

2) The majestic rising of the sun to greet us lowly earthlings.

3) Getting to blog about my experience at a time other than right before bed when I’m tired.

4) Chick-fil-A Hash Browns.

It’s really not a close race. I mean, the hash browns at Chick-fil-A are probably the best thing on earth.  Right now if I was hard-pressed into a “one-meal-before-I-die” scenario, I’d have to put some Chick-fil-A hash browns on the list.  I’ve had plenty to which I can compare, and I’m telling you, no one does it like Chick-fil-A.

Saturdays are always kind of depressing for us, because unlike most people who work Monday to Friday, we have to do it again on Saturday. The Internet doesn’t sleep, and neither can we.  Plus, a few of the ladies who usually help us have been gone this week, so it falls on us to get the job done. Alas, this is the life of a blogger.   Good news is, like Chick-fil-A, we intentionally rest on Sundays so WE can do the sleeping. (Nothing says Sunday like an after church full belly, fan on high, blanket on, and Jim Nance in the background, am I right?)


I saw my guy Andrew this morning and we chatted about the ebb and flow of Chick-fil-A drive-thru traffic. Comes in waves, he said, but there wasn’t a soul this morning besides me and him. Two out of three days I’ve seen Andrew. Swell guy.


Since I’m moving through the entire menu item by item and meal by meal, today he hooked me up with a #2 on the breakfast menu, the Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Minis™, 3-ct, with hash browns and a black coffee. According to the Chick-fil-A website, the Minis are: Bite-sized Chick-fil-A® Nuggets nestled in warm, mouth-watering mini yeast rolls that are lightly coated with honey butter spread (3 or 4-count).

Total Cost: $4.69

Now I know what you’re thinking. Why only three? Why not four? Can I not live on the wild side a little, and do exactly the opposite of what you might think? I mean, I’m saving 100 calories+ by going three instead of four. Besides, I have had the minis before and while good, I don’t like them as much as the chicken biscuit. Just being honest. The biscuit is flaky, these are rolly. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.  We’re talking personal preference here people. Besides I had those amazingly fantastic hash browns to mitigate the absurdity of only taking a 3-ct,  despite owning a Chick-fil-A VIP card which clearly allows you four.

Maybe I should’ve got four.

Final Every Day Rating: 8 out of 10. Again, just personal preference. I like the minis a lot, but would prefer the biscuit over the roll. That’s all.
