Day 35 – Working My Way thru the Menu: #4 Spicy Chicken Biscuit Breakfast Meal

Day 35.

If you don’t love what you see in the above picture – a #4 Chick-fil-A® Spicy Chicken Biscuit meal with hash browns and coffee – then you, my friend, need to check your pulse. Or maybe it’s just you’re an alien. From Mars. Or another galaxy. ‘Cause there ain’t NO way that the beckon of a Spicy Chicken Biscuit doesn’t reel you in like one of the Jason Bourne Trilogy movies.

Seriously, can anyone else relate with me on the Bourne movies thing? I can be doing a thousand and one other important things with my day and if USA or TNT is running a Bourne movie marathon, I am hooked! Put a fork in me dude, because I am sprawled out motionlessly enraptured for the next [insert hours here], regardless of what I’ve got going on.

The same can be said for the Spicy Chicken Biscuit meal.

I had another early morning meeting today (6:30 a.m.), and for the two gentlemen with whom I met, you guys rock. So after I got a little work done at our meeting place, I headed over to the Chick-fil-A on US 19 in Clearwater by Countryside Mall for my Every Day with Chick-fil-A, which I believe is my first drive-thru only Chick-fil-A thus far:

I slid easily through the non-line and chatted it up with Ali and her co-worker (sorry, I forget your name) about Every Day with Chick-fil-A and my VIP status.  Her comment?  “You are probably the only person who eats more Chick-fil-A than I do.”

That’s a badge I wear proudly.

Once I had my order, I quickly scarfed down the hash browns, those delectable potatoes of golden-fried goodness. Seriously, there are not enough in that little package.  Chick-fil-A execs – I will gladly pay an additional $0.50-$0.60 for more hash browns. I devour them in less than a minute easily, and the thing is, I’m not trying to.  They’re just that good and that easy to eat.

As for my Chick-fil-A Spicy Chicken Biscuit, it’s described as: A breakfast portion of boneless breast of chicken, seasoned with a spicy blend of peppers, hand-breaded, pressure cooked in 100% peanut oil and served on a freshly baked buttermilk biscuit.

Total Cost: $4.94

Weighing in a just under 700 calories and 1665 mg of sodium, the super tasty heavy-weight fighter of the fast-food industry, the Spicy Chicken Biiiiiiiiscuit. Now if there were only a way to cut those sodium numbers, we’d be in business. I love the spicy chicken flavor, you addictive little chicken you, even though you make my bald head sweat. But after I eat you, I only have 600 mg of my RDA of sodium left, so you leave me so few options for the rest of the day.

Final Every Day Rating: I’m going to go 9 out of 10, only because of the sodium factor. 695 calories is a lot, but it’s doable if you’re an active human being like myself. The carbs don’t even bother me that much, because you need carbs if you’re going to run 6.5 miles like I did Sunday or bike 10 miles like I did yesterday. **Side note** The saddle is paying the price for that first ride in over a year. Someone bring me some Gold Bond.

Don’t you want to Eat Mor Chickin now???
