Chick-fil-A is now serving chicken and waffles

Chick-fil-A has long been a part of the fast food breakfast wars with its chicken biscuits, but it's expanding its breakfast menu to include options like chicken and waffles and Greek yogurt.

At certain restaurants across the country, including locations in Southern California, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Tennesee, Chick-fil-A is testing its new breakfast menu, which, includes several health-conscious items in addition to the chicken and waffles.

Some of the healthy offerings include the Egg White Chicken Grill breakfast sandwich, which has less than 300 calories, as well as a Greek yogurt parfait and multigrain oatmeal. The Atlanta-based chain has also rolled out "Cinnamon Swirls," a set of mini cinnamon rolls.

"As our customer base continues to grow, so does the variety of our customers' appetites and dietary preferences," Brian Wray, manager of menu development for Chick-fil-A Inc., said in a statement. "Our customers have been asking for products that are health-conscious, easily portable, as well as offerings that suit regional appetites." --Meghan DeMaria
