After first creating a really fuss in the UK, McDonald’s is now formally testing out a chicken variation of its famous Big Mac here in the United States.
Later this month, the business will test-drive a Chicken Big Mac in McDonald’s restaurants in the Miami area, according to The Washington Post. The ingredients are the same—special sauce, shredded lettuce, American cheese, pickles, and a sesame seed bun—but instead of the usual beef patties, there are two tempura chicken patties instead.
McDonald’s previously offered the Chicken Big Mac in the UK and Australia, where it had to be removed from the menu earlier this year owing to dramatic change. Although it will be a first for the US, it was previously offered in both countries.
There are no promises, but it’s feasible that the Chicken Big Mac might become national if it proves to be well-liked by South Floridians. The Washington Post was informed by a company representative that “While not everything we test makes it on our US menus, we’ll use this time to gather feedback from both customers and restaurant crew as we consider opportunities to offer more delicious options in the future.”
They continued, “We’re always looking to give our fans more ways to enjoy the classic menu items they know and love.”
