This simple Chick-fil-A sandwich hack changes everything

In the land of fast food hacks, Chick-fil-A ranks pretty high, even though the company continues to claim that it does not have a secret menu. You can create a cookie Icedream sandwich out of Icedream and two cookies. You can also make your chicken sandwich spicier by requesting pepper jack cheese, jalapeno salsa, and sriracha sauce. Top it all off by requesting an off-the-menu root beer float – they'll simply add Icedream to your root beer.

Ready for another hack that will change your Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich game? How about double the chicken? According to AL.com, this DIY Chick-fil-A hack will change the way you eat your chicken sandwiches forever. Basically, you order two Chick-fil-A sandwiches and put both chicken patties between two buns, discarding the leftover buns (or sharing them with a favorite furry friend). What are some of the benefits of doubling up? Are you doubling the flavor or benefiting in other ways?

The pros and cons of a double Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich

As you might expect, AL.com contributor Matt Wake confirms that having two Chick-fil-A chicken filets is indeed better than one, claiming that "the bird-to-bun ratio is vastly improved." Wake also writes, "A double Chick-fil-A is twice the peanut-oil-kissed edge crunch. Twice that tender, juicy, savory, peppery on the edge of your tongue juju that makes these sandwiches the best thing the fast-food industry has ever produced."

If you're watching your wallet, you'll pay an extra $3.75 for that second sandwich. And, if you dare to consider the calorie ramifications, While a single Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich clocks in at 440 calories, by adding a second chicken filet, you'll actually only add 250 calories, rather than the potential 440 from a full second sandwich with the bun. Sounds reasonable, in theory. According to Insider, a Chick-fil-A sandwich (with the bun) also packs 19 grams of fat and 40 grams of carbs, and a registered dietitian recommended pairing this already protein-packed sandwich with veggies for nutritional balance.
