There are lots of foods that taste delicious with chicken. Mashed potatoes, sweet corn, biscuits, fries, coleslaw... I could go on forever. In my personal opinion, though, nothing goes better with chicken than mac & cheese. It looks like Chick-fil-A agrees with me!

The popular fast-food chicken chain has just added mac & cheese to their menu! And, the best part? It's a PERMANENT side! They didn't go the limited time only route, which is how you know the mac & cheese is delicious. USA Today reports that they tested the new menu item in five markets last year and it was a huge success. The press release states:

"We have a very high bar when it comes to adding a menu item, but the feedback from our customers in the test markets made this decision easy. I am excited it will be available for all of our guests across the country."

Chick-fil-A's mac & cheese is the first new permanent menu item since 2016 and contains a blend of cheddar, Parmesan, and Romano cheeses. It can be ordered as a side with lunch or dinner, as a kid's meal, or as part of a catering order. All the reviews I've read so far have been positive, but I'm wondering how it'll stand up next to Panera Bread mac & cheese, which is my current favorite. I will have to try it out and let you know!

If you give the new Chick-fil-A mac & cheese a try, be sure to let us know how it is in the comments!
