The Spicy Chick-n-Strips will come seasoned with a spicy blend of peppers, offered as a three or four-strip entrée as well as a catering choice.

It’s out with the old and in with the new, however. To make room on the menu, Chick-fil-A is pulling three dishes – the Original Chick-n-Strips, Grilled Cool Wrap and Side Salad – from the markets where the spicy selections are sold. Chick-fil-A superfans may recall that the spicy strips and biscuits are actually also being tested at participating restaurants in Arizona and Charlotte, N.C., and will continue to be offered there, according to a news release.

Those craving the spicy bites might not want to wait too long to give them a try, as Chick-fil-A did not disclose how long the spicy chicken strips and biscuit will be available.
