PHOENIX, Ariz. (WTHR) – Chick-fil-A is bringing the heat with a new menu item being tested in select cities.

Chick-fil-A has started testing some spicy chicken strips to possibly serve at their restaurants nationwide.

Locations in Phoenix, Arizona; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Waco, Texas; and South Texas have been chosen to test the new menu item.

In addition to Spicy Chick-n-Strips, participating Phoenix, Yuma and Tucson restaurants will now offer three new spicy options for guests to try: Grilled Spicy Deluxe Sandwich, Spicy Chick-n-Strips Biscuit and the Grilled Spicy Deluxe Bundle.

“Spicy is certainly a trend, but we don’t think it’s going anywhere," Amanda Norris, the executive director of Chick-fil-A’s told Business Insider. "We only see it growing — just looking at just what we sell in our spicy sandwich. So, I think you’re going to see Chick-fil-A do more with spicy.”

Depending on how the item sells in those markets, spicy chicken strips may or may not end up nationwide.
