Chick-fil-A's chicken sandwiches became an instant classic one fateful day in 1967, when an anonymous Georgia chicken wandered into a hot, buttered bun and made history. Forty-some-odd years later, or 267 million chicken years, Chick-fil-A chicken biscuit sandwiches are still made the same way, with boneless cuts of breast meat hand-breaded by mystic chicken ascetics, bronzed in 100% refined peanut oil, and kept warm in buttermilk biscuit earmuffs. Like gambling on horse racing, the chicken biscuit is so dangerously delicious that you'll devour two without thinking twice, but unlike gambling, Chick-fil-A's sandwiches never contain dice, poker chips, or knee-breaking goons in track suits.
