McDonald’s Is Debuting a NEW Chicken Sandwich, and We’re Ordering One ASAP

McDonald's is entering the chicken sandwich war with this crispy little number...

Who can forget last year’s chicken sandwich wars? I kind of miss when the Popeyes and Chick-fil-a feud was the most dramatic thing going on in my life. Even Wendy’s and Shake Shack got in on the action, but this year McDonald’s is the brand to watch.

The Golden Arches are debuting a brand-new Crispy Chicken Sandwich early next year, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it. Here’s what we have to look forward to in 2021.

McDonald’s Menu Is Getting Bigger

McDonald’s put out a press release revealing its intention to “expand its chicken offerings,” partly by introducing this new sandwich, but they didn’t give too many details besides the name—the Crispy Chicken Sandwich! I’m confident that McDonald’s will wow us with juicy fried chicken, a delicious soft bun (brioche, maybe?!), and some unique new sauce to top it all off.

We’re thinking that this new sandwich will build on McDonald’s other chicken offerings—especially the McChicken Biscuit and the Chicken McGriddle. If you’ve had those delicious breakfast items, you probably get why we’re so excited.

Another addition to the McDonald’s menu will be the McPlant. If you’re not sure what that is, you’re not alone—the McPlant is McDonald’s first-ever plant-based burger. The patty is made by Beyond Meat (you may have heard of them before) layered with lettuce, tomato, cheese and onions, all finished with a sesame seed bun. Even if you’re not a vegetarian, this sandwich will be a guaranteed hit.

Try These in the Meantime

The new McDonald’s Crispy Chicken Sandwich and the McPlant won’t be around for a little while, but that just gives us something tasty to look forward to. We can most likely expect the new sammies in early 2021, though we’re hoping for an official rollout at the end of December. Only time will tell!

While you wait, you can always rely on Chick-fil-a for a good chicken sandwich. We’ve even got your back with the best chicken sandwich recipes to make at home. Right before the heavy food of the holidays begins, a chicken sandwich is a great healthy meal to keep yourself going. I might just go pick one up right now.
