How to cater your summer gatherings with Chick-fil-A
From picnics to potlucks, Chick-fil-A has you covered.
From holiday weekend celebrations and backyard barbecues to beach trips and family reunions, the warm weather of summer brings an endless list of fun outdoor activities — and they often call for feeding a crowd. Knowing what and how much food to bring can be a challenge, though, which is why we created this handy guide for catering your next summer gathering.
Long weekend celebrations
Throwing a party on a long weekend = one small Chick-fil-A® Nugget Tray
Chick-fil-A® Nuggets may just be the ultimate party food. They are bite-sized, packed with flavour and satisfy just about anyone. And the best part? The tray comes with a squeezable eight-ounce (216 mL) bottle of Chick-fil-A® Sauce and your choice of our seven signature Chick-fil-A sauces.
Your kids invited all their friends = upgrade to a large Chick-fil-A® Nugget Tray
Don’t worry if your party keeps growing and growing. A large nugget tray feeds up to 25 people.
Firing up the grill with some friends = one Garden Salad Tray and one 3.4 litre jug of Freshly-Brewed Iced Tea
You may be cooking the entrée but let Chick-fil-A take care of the sides. The Garden Salad Tray features a fresh bed of chopped Romaine lettuce topped with shredded red cabbage and carrots, shredded Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheeses, and grape tomatoes. And no barbecue is complete without Iced Tea – your choice of sweetened or unsweetened.
Why won’t the grill light up? = add one Grilled Chicken Bundle
It’s the same result as grilling out, but without your clothes smelling like smoke – plus, it’s a lot less work. Everyone can build their own grilled chicken sandwich with a spread that includes tender Chick-fil-A® Grilled Chicken breasts, multigrain brioche buns, green leaf lettuce, tomatoes, Monterey Jack cheese cheddar cheese, bacon and Honey Roasted BBQ Sauce.
Satisfying your picky eaters = add one small Chick-fil-A® Nugget Tray
The little ones need to eat something other than ketchup, so bring in reinforcements with a tray of mouth-watering nuggets.
Spending a day at the beach with the family = Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich Packaged Meals or 8-count Chick-fil-A® Nuggets Packaged Meals
Take the hassle out of packing a picnic for the beach with Chick-fil-A packaged meals. They offer everything you need in a portable container. Try Chicken Sandwiches for the adults and Nuggets for the kids. Served with a bag of Waffle Potato Chips and a Chocolate Chunk Cookie for dessert, everyone is sure to be happy.
Turning up the heat at the beach = try Chick-fil-A® Spicy Chicken Sandwich Packaged Meals
For all your heat-lovers, spice up a beach day with the Spicy Chicken Sandwich Packaged Meal. The Spicy Chicken Sandwich features a savoury, boneless chicken breast seasoned with a spicy blend of peppers. It’s freshly breaded and served on a toasted bun (also available on multigrain), with Waffle Potato Chips and a Chocolate Chunk Cookie.
Let’s make drinks easy = add a 3.4 litre jug of Freshly-Brewed Iced Tea and a 3.4 litre jug of Chick-fil-A® Lemonade
There’s nothing better on a hot day than a glass of Iced Tea (order it sweet or unsweet) or Lemonade (always made from three simple ingredients: lemon juice, sugar, and water). For those who know the joy of mixing the two together, the best choice is not to choose at all. A Sunjoy™ beverage makes for the perfect summer refreshment.
It’s your turn to bring post-game snacks for the team = one small Chocolate Chunk Cookie Tray
Whether a victory or consolation prize, the snacks waiting for the team after the match are almost as fun as the meet itself. This cookie tray will take post-game snacks to the next level with its large chunks of semi-sweet dark and milk chocolate combined with wholesome oats.
Remembering the drinks = add Honest Kids® Apple Juice boxes and individual bottles of Simply Orange® juice, low-fat milk or water.
Don’t forget to order single servings of milk, juice and water. They’re perfect for when you need beverage options for little hands and don’t have a moment more to spare.
Realizing the family reunion is this afternoon and it’s a potluck = one large Spicy Chick-fil-A® Chick-n-Strips Tray
Hot and full of flavour, Spicy Chick-n-Strips save the day in a big way, when you have many mouths to feed. Seasoned to perfection, they’re freshly breaded and served with an easy-to-squeeze eight-ounce (216 mL) bottle of Chick-fil-A® Sauce and your choice of Chick-fil-A signature dipping sauces.
Anyone bringing dessert? = add one large Chocolate Chunk Cookie Tray
For the kiddos and adults alike, these wholesome oat cookies with semi-sweet dark and milk chocolate chunks are the perfect way to finish a summer feast.
