I tried the viral Chick-Fil-A 'bowl' hack from TikTok and think the fast-food chain should add it to the menu immediately

  • A woman shared the hack on TikTok in February, and it was later popularized by food reviewer Keith Lee. 

  • The hack combines Chick-Fil-A's chicken nuggets, waffle fries, mac and cheese, along with two sauces.

  • I tried the bowl, and it was a delicious combination of the fast-food chain's best items. 

A Chick-Fil-A hack spread across TikTok after food reviewer Keith Lee tried it earlier this month.

In February, TikTok user babydoll_247 shared the hack in a now-viral video that as of Tuesday, has 28 million views. The video shows the woman, who appears to be a Chick-Fil-A employee, combining the fast-food chain's waffle fries, mac and cheese, chicken nuggets, ranch dressing, and honey-roasted BBQ sauce into a bowl before shaking it up.

One month later, Keith Lee reviewed the hack for his 11 million TikTok followers on March 11. Lee's video, which has 23 million views as of Tuesday, showed him copying the hack before giving it a resounding "9.5 out of 10."

Users in Lee's comment section discussed trying the hack because of his high praise, and others posted their own taste test videos on TikTok.

I decided to follow suit and try the hack myself. In my opinion, it combines all of my favorite Chick-Fil-A items and makes a good argument for an official dinner bowl.

To make, pick up a few menu items from a local Chick-Fil-A.

Go to your closest Chick-Fil-A and order five items:

  • Waffle fries

  • Chicken nuggets

  • Mac and cheese

  • Ranch dressing

  • Honey-roasted BBQ sauce.

The order likely doesn't come with a salad bowl, so either ask for one at the register or use a mixing bowl at home.

First, add the waffle fries.

Feel free to chop up the waffle fries if you want bite-sized pieces.

Toss the chicken nuggets in next.

The hack calls for one box of chicken nuggets but you can add as many as you want.

Then add a bowl of mac and cheese into the mix.

Like the chicken, add more or less depending on personal preferences.

Squeeze ranch dressing and honey-roasted BBQ sauce on top.

The hack calls for one packet of each.

Give the bowl a good shake until all the food is evenly coated.

It only took a few shakes for all the ingredients to meld together.

It's a tasty hack that has the potential to be a dinner item, in my opinion.

It's a fun twist on some of Chick-Fil-A's more popular menu items and it's not too surprising that they taste delicious together. The chicken paired well with the mac and cheese, and the fries added an extra crunch. Although I ate mine at room temperature, it could be a quick upgrade to microwave it for a minute or two.

If you're like me and don't mind when your food touches, this is a tasty alternative to eating each item individually.

While it's a cool hack, I also wonder if it will be added to the menu somewhere down the road due to its popularity. While Chick-Fil-A sells hash brown scramble bowls on its breakfast menu, I could see the fast-food chain selling a dinner bowl similar to KFC's Famous Bowl or Chipotle's burrito bowl.
