In light of increased breakfast consumption in America, as well as more frequent morning meal visits to quick service restaurants, Chick-fil-A has introduced a new breakfast menu item, its first in six years.

The Egg White Grill is described by the chain as a "protein-packed breakfast sandwich," featuring grilled chicken breast, grilled egg whites, and American cheese, on a toasted multigrain English muffin. It has 300 calories and 25 grams of protein, and was created "to meet the demands of those seeking a healthy breakfast on-the-go," according to a release.

"At Chick-fil-A, we're constantly looking for innovative -- and delicious -- ways to meet the needs of our guests," said David Farmer, vice president of menu strategy and development. "We understand the importance of breakfast and the impact it has throughout the day."

The sandwich starts at $3.35, and joins Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit, Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Minis, Greek Yogurt, and more on the chain's breakfast menu.
