We continue to be enamored with those delectable nuggets and classic chicken sandwiches. 

Have you ever wondered if there was more to the menu? Though Chick-Fil-A has denied rumors of a secret menu, you can still enjoy using these menu hacks, as long as you don’t mind putting in a little work. 

If you enjoy the spicy chicken sandwich, close your eyes and think about how much better it would be with a touch of buffalo sauce!

Same for their classic macaroni and cheese; while the original recipe speaks for itself, a loaded buffalo chicken version would be even better. The possibilities don’t end there either.  

Chick-Fil-A Menu Hacks 

Read on to see the 8 Chick-Fil-A menu hacks that will rewrite your go-to Chick-Fil-A order. 


Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese

What could be better than Chick-Fil-A nuggets and macaroni and cheese? Put them together with buffalo sauce! Voila, buffalo chicken macaroni & cheese! 

All you need to do is order some nuggets- whether you want original or grilled is up to you!

When they ask your sauce preference, order a buffalo sauce and a ranch sauce. Alongside your nuggets, finally, order a side of macaroni & cheese.

Once you have everything, you can mix it all to realize one of the greatest menu hacks of them all!

Separately, they each make a great meal but combined, they upgrade each other completely. 


Brownie Milkshake

Who can resist a tasty brownie? Or a classic vanilla milkshake? Try them together, and knock your socks off. 

My favorite Chick-Fil-A menu hack has to be the Brownie Milkshake, where you use special instructions for your Chick-Fil-A server to blend up a piece of their brownie into their classic vanilla shake. 

The added treat creates another layer of sweetness that is unstoppable. You’ll be unable to enjoy plain vanilla milkshakes after trying this. 

In theory, you can also ask them to blend in a chocolate chip cookie for a special milkshake treat!


Buffalo Chicken Sandwich

While the classic and spicy sandwiches are always satisfying at Chick-Fil-A, sometimes we wish there was a Buffalo Chicken just for us.

While some locations will let you order a Buffalo Chicken sandwich, not all do.  

In the meantime, until Chick-Fil-A answers our pleas, we can use this hack to make that appetizing sandwich ourselves. 

To start, order a classic spicy sandwich and ask for a side of buffalo sauce. Once you receive your order, all you need to do is combine it!

You might be skeptical about the kick at the first bite, but by the time you finish that last bite, your mouth will be on fire. 


Chick-n-Minis Masterpiece

The Chick-n-Mini on its own is incredible no one can deny that. But let’s just say this hack did not get this title for no reason. 

Start this hack by ordering Chick-n-Minis, a side of hashbrowns, and your favorite sauce, if you prefer any.

Once you receive your food, start constructing this ideal meal by lifting the top bun of your Chick-n-Minis. Adorn each chicken bite with a hashbrown and a dollop of sauce. 

Then close the sandwich, and voila, an upgraded meal you’ll want to recreate again and again.

Chick-n-Minis Masterpiece makes a tasty breakfast that will fill you up for the day ahead!


Cookie Icedream Sandwich

What do you do if you don’t know whether you want a cookie or ice cream? You have both! 

This Chick-Fil-A menu hack will pay homage to your love for ice cream and the classically irresistible chocolate chip cookie.

Just order an Icedream in a cup or cone (whatever you think will be easiest) and two chocolate chunk cookies. 

Once you have those ingredients, take a spoon and smooth your vanilla ice cream onto the bottom of one chocolate chunk cookie.

Then close the sandwich with your second chocolate chip chunk cookie. Voila! A dessert that is scrumptious to the last crumb! 


Double Cookie Milkshake

The Double Cookie Milkshake is a hack Chick-Fil-A is proud to endorse!

If you’ve never tried the Chick-Fil-A Cookies and Cream milkshake, this recipe is perfect, as it gives you the chance to experience it in all its glory. 

While the Cookies and Cream milkshake need no extra trimmings, the Double Cookie Milkshake comes to life by ordering a chocolate chunk cookie and crumbling it into a cookie and cream milkshake. Stir it up and take a sip; amazing, right? 

Alternatively, you could use your cookie to dip into the milkshake, though this might be a bit messier than the original recipe.  


Grilled Cheese

Perhaps one of the most simple Chick-Fil-A menus hacks of them all, I present you grilled cheese!

Who doesn’t love a grilled cheese sandwich? Regardless of the weather outside, you absolutely can’t go wrong with this beloved sandwich. 

To get yourself a grilled cheese at Chick-Fil-A, all you order is a buttered, toasted bun with a slice of American cheese on top!

Or if you feel fancy, switch it up with Chick-Fil-A’s favorite pepper jack. The bread will be crunchy, the cheese will be gooey! 

My mouth just waters thinking about it. This is one of my favorite meals and it’s phenomenal at Chick-Fil-A.


Icedream Fruit Cup

For those who enjoy Chick-fil-A’s Icedream, you can take it up to the next level by also ordering a fruit cup.

It’s a simple, yet a delectable combination of sweet and even sweeter; meet the Icedream Fruit Cup! 

The vanilla base is one so familiar, yet enhanced into greatness with red and green apple pieces, slices of mandarin oranges, and wedges of fresh strawberries and blueberries.

You’ll be chowing down and dancing a little dance with every bite; trust me, I always do! 

Fruit cups come in small and medium sizes while the Icedream just comes in one size. Delicious!
