Chick-fil-A is offering a special sandwich this week — but it doesn't have any chicken
Now that we're in season of Lent, Chick-fil-A wants to make forgoing poultry as easy as possible.
This week, Chick-Fil-A is cooking up a pescatarian version of its signature sandwich at participating restaurants. And the offering lasts through the Easter season.
Although Chick-fil-A clearly wouldn't be an ideal spot to visit if you're not eating anything on these holidays, the chicken chain's fried fish sandwiches will certainly fit the bill for many.
Some fans of the Chick-fil-A's chicken sandwich feel blindsided by the idea of a chicken-less meal.
But, according to a restaurant rep, participating restaurants have been offering the seasonal sandwich since 2015 — and they don't stop serving the regular menu during that time.
Other Chick-fil-A customers just feel a bit disappointed that the fish sandwich isn't cleverly marketed as a "Fish-Fil-A."
There's also a school of fish eaters hungrily welcoming the cod sandwich back this year, with some expressing hope that the chain might make it a permanent menu item.
Chick-fil-A's fish sandwich includes two lightly battered fried cod fillets between a warm, buttered bun. It also comes with cheese, lettuce and an optional lemony tartar sauce that "pairs perfectly with the flaky white fish."
Since the sandwich will not be available through Chick-fil-A's app or its online menu, Chick-Fil-A is encouraging customers to “contact their local restaurant directly to determine if it is offering Lenten Fish.”
