TORONTO — McDonald’s fans have a new menu item to try this week.
The fast food chain announced it will launch the “Chicken Big Mac” at restaurants across the country starting Tuesday. Branded as a “fresh take on an old favourite,” it’s only around for a limited time.
“We know that Canadians have been hacking the Chicken Big Mac in creative ways over the years, eager to get their hands on the real thing,” said Alyssa Buetikofer, chief marketing officer of McDonald’s Canada.
“To these guests, we love your passion and your hacking days are officially behind you: the Chicken Big Mac is finally here. But it’s only for a limited time, so try it while you can.”
McDonald’s Canada says the burger includes everything you’d expect from a Big Mac — such as Big Mac sauce, lettuce, cheese and tangy pickles — but is made with chicken patties instead of beef.
The Chicken Big Mac joins McDonald’s other chicken-based products like the McCrispy, McNuggets and the McChicken.
