Chick-fil-A's already got a pretty extensive secret menu. Thanks to a current employee, however, we've learned some dope additional alterations you can make, including an epic secret menu item that transcends anything we've seen from the fried chicken chain to date.
Reddit user AHerdOfGoats, who identified themself as a cook at a Chick-fil-A, revealed a few tricks of the fried chicken trade when it comes to the what and how of the beloved chain. While some revelations weren't as surprising (ie. No, Chick-fil-A does not brine their food with pickle juice), the Redditor also unveiled some interesting tidbits.
First off, you can actually ask for your chicken to be double-dipped before it heads to the deep fryer. You'll get a thicker batter and crunchier texture, but it may cause a tad of a wait for others in line. AHerdOfGoats also mentioned that the exterior is quite bulky as a result, so if you're a thin batter person, this may not be the upgrade for you.
A level-up that anyone can get behind, however, is the fact that you can ask for a Double-Decker sandwich. That means that for virtually any sandwich, you can ask for double the meat, beefing (or in this case, chickening) up your fast food sandwich game.
People have been creating their own versions of the Double Decker for a while, as seen in the above Twitter and Instagram photos. However, this is the first confirmation we have that Chick-fil-A employees can and will double up your sandwich for you.
Chick-fil-A already stands among the top fast food chicken fryers, but this secret double-decker option may take it all the way up.
