There’s a new restaurant entering the chicken sandwich game!
McDonald’s has been conspicuously absent from the chicken sandwich wars, which have been raging on all around them for well over a year now. The fast-food giant is finally ready to fire its first shot in the fight to establish chicken sandwich dominance, and their plan of attack includes the addition of three new menu items next month!
Beginning February 24, McDonald’s will begin offering three brand new crispy, juicy, tender chicken fillet sandwiches made with all-white meat chicken. The first (shown above) is the Crispy Chicken Sandwich, which is topped with crinkle-cut pickles and served on an all-new toasted, buttered potato roll.
The second chicken sandwich joining McDonald’s menu will bring a little bit of heat to their new chicken sandwich lineup. The Spicy Chicken Sandwich is made with a crispy chicken fillet and served with a spicy pepper sauce, crinkle-cut pickles, and a toasted potato roll.
The third and final addition to McDonald’s new chicken sandwich lineup is perfect for the chicken sandwich lover who’s looking for something with all the fixings. The Deluxe Chicken Sandwich comes topped with shredded lettuce, Roma tomatoes, and mayonnaise.
Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen, said in a statement,
“We’ve heard our customers loud and clear, and we know they’re craving more chicken options. We’re confident all chicken fans – from traditionalists to spice enthusiasts – will discover a new menu favorite they’ll come back for time and time again.”
