Gluten-free at Chick-fil-a

We don’t eat out a lot, but when we do, Chick-fil-a is one of the places we depend on for fast gluten-free food. Chick-fil-a has a gluten-free menu that can be viewed here. I love to get the Chargrilled Chicken Garden Salad – it is a really good size salad and keeps me full for a while. I also steal a few of Jon’s waffle fries!

Jon loves to get the chargrilled chiken breast, waffle fries & vanilla shake*.





As you can see Jon was eating the food faster than I could get pictures of it! LOL! Now, a warning about the shake. The ingredients of the vanilla shake are gluten-free, but be cautious when ordering. The shakes are handspun and the shake mixer may also have mixed cookies & cream shakes. So, unless you are there when they are not busy & can get an employee to clean the machine, you may want to stay away from the shake. We happened to be there at 11 AM on this day and the manager was very accommodating.

  • Wow, another restaurant to try out! I've been gluten-free (celiac) for over 14 years and didn't eat out as much as I do now. I used to have such trouble whenever I'd eat out, no matter how carefully I explained the concept of gluten-free to the server, cook, and manager. Now, we eat out at least once a week and I haven't had a reaction in quite some time. I'm still careful about it, though, and never eat out the day before I need to be somewhere important, just in case.

    Thanks for posting about Chick-fil-a!

  • Have never been, but heard a lot about it. Friends in Denver were just chatting about it as we drove by one out there last weekend. (there were SO many options in Denver, gf heaven)

    Need to find one near me now!

    I like CFA, too. I did want to mention something that I found out from friends who are managers at local CFAs. While the fries are GF and not fried with the chicken, there is a possibility of contamination. When a customer asked for a "crispy" CFA sandwich, the employees typically use the fry fryer to dip the chicken in. Therefore, it isn't much different than frying in the chicken fry oil to begin with.

    This is good , but make sure you find out how they make the chicken. That's important to know . I do know that some Chick Fil A's remove the breading from the chicken Fil A , then serve it as is.. Calling it Gluten Free. I would be careful with cross contamination

  • I agree your viewpoint. My study has shown your views to be true, then again, I have also read the opposite from different sites like this one. Do you have any thoughts for getting more legitimate info on gardening or related topics? I would definitely appreciate it!

  • [...] home, I knew that I had eaten gluten.  The catch with Chick fil-A’s milkshakes (according to this post on Gluten Free is Life) are that they make their cookies and cream variety on the same machine (or maybe it comes out of [...]
