It’s slated to be McDs biggest release of the year – on February 24th the brand is expected to drop their trio of new Crispy Chicken sandwiches. The lineup announced in January will see the following new menu items:

  • Crispy Chicken Sandwich – topped with crinkle cut pickles and served on a new toasted, buttered potato roll

  • Deluxe Chicken Sandwich – served with shredded lettuce, Roma tomatoes and mayo

  • Early access to the new Crispy Chicken Sandwich starting on Feb. 23, one day before it’s available in restaurants nationwide. The hottest new chicken sandwich in the game features a brand-new crispy, juicy, tender fillet made with all-white meat chicken. We’re serving it up three ways – Crispy, Spicy and Deluxe – and featuring mouthwatering ingredients like a toasted, buttered potato roll, crinkle cut pickles and our Spicy Pepper Sauce.   
  • An original, never-before-heard audio track created by super music producer Tay Keith on 7″ vinyl. Created for our new Crispy Chicken Sandwich, and debuting soon in our advertising, you can hear it here first and only get a copy with this drop. 
  • A limited-edition hoodie that reps the deliciousness of our new Crispy Chicken Sandwich in one word “crispyjuicytender” (yeah, we made that up) and features a waveform design of Tay Keith’s original track running up one sleeve. Available in sizes S through XXL.
