Mickey D’s is stepping up their breakfast game. After all, it’s the most important meal of the day. The chain is rolling out the McChicken McMuffin and the Chicken McGriddle in select locations.
Now, you may be wondering: What is a McChicken McMuffin? What is a Chicken McGriddle? Will I actually want one for breakfast? How will it complement my McCafé?
Here’s what we know: A McChicken McMuffin highlights the classic McChicken patty sandwiched between a biscuit and is topped off with mayonnaise and lettuce. But the Chicken McGriddle takes the famous patty and surrounds it with two maple flavored McGriddle buns. Interesting, right?
Turns out, McDonald’s has been whipping up chicken in the AM for years, most notably in the southeast part of the country. A representative from the company told Business Insider, “While the options have been mostly available locally, franchises have recently expanded these options in new markets as a limited time offer.” The spokesperson added, “We use information from our local markets to gauge the potential of expanding options beyond local, regional and limited time offerings.”
The breakfast items have been popping up all over the US in recent weeks, most notably in Southern California. However, the price seems to range. Some customers report they’ve been able to get their hands on the delicacy as part of a two-for-$3 deal, but others have scooped up the meal for as low as $1.
While the McChicken McMuffin and Chicken McGriddle are not officially a part of McDonald’s all-day breakfast menu, the ingredients are pretty basic. So ask the chef, because it shouldn’t be too difficult to get your hands on these protein-filled breakfast items.
