The sandwiches, along with fried fish fillets, will be available now through Easter.
Starting on Wednesday, many Catholics will stop eating meat and meat products on certain days until the end of Lent (which is Easter Sunday, April 21.) Chick-fil-A knows that it’s going to be tough giving up their fried chicken goodness during this period, so they’re providing Lent observers with an alternative: Chick-fil-A fish sandwiches and fillets.
Since fish and shellfish are not considered meat and can therefore be eaten during Lent, Chick-fil-A has been putting this spin on their classic chicken sandwiches and tenders every Easter season since 2015. Many fans have even come to look forward to this time of year for the limited-time-only pescatarian offerings—which are only available from March 6 to April 20 this year.
The sandwich options being temporarily added to the menu include a Fish Sandwich and a Deluxe Fish Sandwich, both made from cod, which are 370 and 430 calories, respectively. Meals with fried fish fillets are also available in either a 2 or 3-count box, and are served with the chain’s famous waffle fries. Tartar sauce will be on standby, and we highly suggest you slather it on.

Because you won’t find the fish options on the Chick-fil-A website or app, the company suggests you call your local store to make sure they’re offering the entrees. And for those not observing Lent, don’t fret: Chick-fil-A will still be serving up the same chicken sandwiches and nuggets that you know and love, of course.
