With all the hype surrounding Wendy’s Spicy Chicken Nuggets re-release, other fast-food chains are starting to take note. Apparently, Spicy Chicken is even trendier than the whole vegan thing.
According to reports, leaked documents reveal that McDonald’s will be adding a new spicy chicken sandwich and spicy chicken tenders to its menu.
This isn’t the first time McDonald’s is offering spicy chicken menu items. Back in 2006, the chain introduced the Hot ‘n Spicy McChicken—a 420 calorie sandwich made with chicken fillet breaded and seasoned with a bold mix of spices and topped with shredded lettuce and mayo—but it was quickly discontinued “due to slow sales.”
They brought it back for a second time in 2013. But it was pulled shortly thereafter with no official reason being given by the fast-food giant.
Set to debut in September 2019, according to Business Insider, both the new Spicy BBQ Glazed Chicken Tenders and Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich will feature the chain’s Crispy Buttermilk Chicken seasoned with a fiery blend of spices and smothered in a new Southwestern sauce with a hint of jalapeño.
This is probably the most exciting news in fast-food since Wendy’s announced the return of its Spicy Nuggets. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to try these puppies out.
