Plates, utensils, and condiments are also included.

Chick-Fil-A is testing out "Family Style Meals" that would allow customers to carry out entrees and sides meant to feed an entire family.

Family-style entree options include 30 chicken nuggets, 12 chicken strips, or four chicken breasts either grilled or fried.

The meals start at $29 and feature two new sides-mac and cheese and bacon baked beans- alongside current menu favorites like the fruit cup, salad and the superfood side.

Chick-fil-A has an answer to the take-out craze: Family Style Meals.

The chicken chain's family meals are reminiscent of KFC's Bucket meals, which are also created to be a convenient way to bring home food for the whole family.

The Family Style Meals also offers lower calorie options.

Starting Monday in Greensboro, North Carolina, Phoenix, and San Antonio, the brand is testing meal kits, including new sides, to meet a growing consumer demand it says affects almost 40 percent of current dinner customers.

Customer feedback in those cities will help determine whether Chick-fil-A rolls them out nationwide, Abercrombie said.

Additionally, Chick-fil-A is testing Bacon Baked Beans and Mac & Cheese in the three cities.

The bacon baked beans and mac and cheese sides are new menu items for the chain.

If you've sometimes felt henpecked because you just can't bring home enough of that Chick-fil-A goodness to please everybody in your roost, worry no more. The mac & cheese features a blend of cheeses including cheddar, Parmesan and Romano. Devoted to serving the local communities in which its franchised restaurants operate, and known for its original chicken sandwich, Chick-fil-A serves freshly prepared food in more than 2,100 restaurants in 46 states and Washington, D.C. In 2016, Chick-fil-A was named the Technomic Consumer's Choice for "providing value through service" and QSR Magazine named the company "the most polite restaurant in the country" in its annual drive-thru report.
