In an effort to overturn its rivals (Popeye’s, Chick-fil-A, and Burger King), McDonald’s is unveiling three new chicken sandwiches.

Starting February 24, McDonald’s is joining the “Chicken Wars” with three brand-new chicken sandwiches. The new lineup includes a Crispy Chicken Sandwich, Spicy Chicken Sandwich, and a Deluxe Chicken Sandwich.

“We’ve heard our customers loud and clear, and we know they’re craving more chicken options,” said Vice President of Menu Innovation, Linda VanGosen. “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.”

Unlike the chain’s current Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich, this crispy sandwich is topped with crinkle-cut pickles and served on an all-new toasted, buttered potato roll. (I’d say Mickey D’s is coming after Chick-fil-A with this one.)

Believe it or not, McDonald’s had a Hot ‘n Spicy McChicken Sandwich at one time. In September of 2020, the fast-food chain decided to bring it back to select locations in the U.S., but it’s not available on its national menu. (McDonald’s also has a Hot ‘n Spicy McChicken Biscuit on its breakfast menu.)

The new Spicy Chicken Sandwich, however, looks as though it’s ready and willing to compete with Popeye’s. Similar to Popeye’s Spicy Chicken Sandwich, McDonald’s version of this savory delight comes slathered with a Spicy Pepper Sauce and crinkle-cut pickles served atop a toasted potato roll.

The Deluxe Chicken Sandwich is described in a similar fashion to the chain’s Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Sandwich (mentioned above). It comes topped with shredded lettuce, Roma tomatoes, and mayo.

According to the company’s official press release, the new Crispy Chicken Sandwich options will be available at participating restaurants nationwide via carry-out, drive-thru, the McDonald’s app, or McDelivery
