Chick-fil-A is changing the breakfast scene, adding its first new morning menu item since 2010.
The fast-food chain is bringing grilled chicken to its morning menu and introducing two new ingredients: egg whites and English muffins.
Chick-fil-A has been serving breakfast since 1986, when it added a fried chicken sandwich on a biscuit. But while that item has 440 calories and 16 grams of protein, the new egg white sandwich is a lower-calorie option at 300 calories and 25 grams of protein.
This renewed focus on breakfast makes sense, considering research commissioned by Chick-fil-A found breakfast has grown across the fast-food industry by 60 percent in just the last five years.
While egg white sandwiches have become a staple at McDonald's, Starbucks, Subway and more, Chick-fil-A's new sandwich is one of the first to add grilled chicken.
