“Mac & Cheese is the quintessential comfort food, and something we are so excited to offer our guests at Chick-fil-A. We think it’s the perfect pairing with our Original Chicken Sandwich, nuggets, and our grilled chicken offerings, but it’s also great on its own as a snack,” Executive Director of Menu and Packaging Amanda Norris said. “Mac & Cheese is also available on our catering menu as a quick pick-up for a larger gathering. It has a delicious, homemade taste.”MORE NEWS: Gunfire From Sharon Hill Officers Killed Child, Injured Four Others Outside Delaware County Football Game, DA Says
