There was a time in college where all my meals were pretty much fast food. I'd pick up a large breakfast at the drive-thru before class, save some for lunch, and swing back on my way home for a dinner sandwich.
While I stopped eating fast food morning, noon, and night, I always wondered if there was anything quite as convenient as ordering your meals through a drive-thru window.
Harkening back to my college years, Chick-fil-A has announced that it will be testing Mealtime Kits in their hometown of Atlanta, GA, in late August.
The Mealtime Kits are designed to let Chick-fil-A customers cook at home using pre-portioned ingredients that they can order right at the fast food chain's drive-thru menu.
As of now, there are five different kit recipes being tested in Atlanta that were developed by Chick-Fil-A chef and restauranteur Stuart Tracy. These include Chicken Parmesan, Chicken Enchiladas, Dijon Chicken, Pan Roasted Chicken, and Chicken Flatbread. Sure, it's not quite their fast food menu, but the star is their pre-marinated chicken. A single kit feeds two people and costs $15.89.
Guests can order the Mealtime Kits at 150 Atlanta Chick-fil-A restaurants beginning Aug. 27. There's no advance notice or subscription required to pick up your meal kits. Once you have them, all you have to do is follow the recipe card and you can prep a meal in about half an hour.
If successful, expect to see more cities rolling out the meal prep kits.
Fingers crossed, we see Chick-fil-A try to tackle breakfast meal-preps, too, and cover every meal of the day.
