Level Up Your Chick-Fil-A Chicken Sandwich With One Viral Honey Hack

Chick-Fil-A has no shortage of hacks and secret menu items that keep loyal customers coming back. Just when you think every hack under the sun has been tried, customers come up with new ways to hack their favorite items. One of the latest hacks that have gone viral involves using honey and barbecue sauce to achieve the ultimate sweet and salty combination. Thanks to a TikTok video from @eatdrinkbemandy, Chick-Fil-A fans will be able to create a new riff on the beloved chicken sandwich. In the hack, both honey and Chick-Fil-A's barbecue sauce are added to a bag with the fried chicken patty and shaken. Once the chicken is nice and sauced, it's added back to the bun.

In the video, the honey package is from Chick-Fil-A, but according to Chick-Fil-A's website, the honey packet is no longer available in the stores. It's unclear if it's completely unavailable or only available at select locations, but any honey will work fine. In the video, a spicy chicken sandwich is ordered for a sweet and spicy kick, but the regular version works as well. People were quick to comment on the hack, with several people giving an easier alternative.

You should be adding honey to your chicken

As with any good hack, there's always going to be someone out there who thinks they can do it better. Several users commented on the Tiktok video, with one writing, "Just put honey n bbq on a bun. Same thing." Another questioned the need for all the extra steps when the sauce could be poured directly on the sandwich. Chick-Fil-A actually has a honey-roasted barbecue dipping sauce that could be used, even though it's marketed as the perfect complement to the grilled chicken.

While anyone can create this hack, this isn't the first time Chick-Fil-A has noticed the appeal of honey on its chicken. Those living in South and North Carolina got to experience the Southern style sandwich that was drizzled with honey. The short-lived sandwich combined the sweetness from the honey with the spice from pickled jalapeños and the richness of pimento cheese. Unfortunately, the sandwich is no longer available, but thanks to this hack, customers can make their own crave-able, spicy, smokey, and sweet chicken sandwiches.
