McDonald’s is getting saucy with its new spicy chicken menu


Forget Southern chicken sandwiches, McDonald’s wants to entice you with a saucier option. Its McDonald’s spicy chicken menu items will require a napkin.

Are you ready to get saucy? McDonald’s spicy chicken menu will join the menu on September 11. While the chicken sandwich wars continue to rage on, these new chicken menu items definitely have a spicy, saucy kick. Are you taste buds prepared for the flavor?

Recently, everyone has been talking about chicken. Whether it is the best Southern Style chicken sandwich or meatless fried chicken, it seems that people have forgotten about the burgers. Somehow, everyone is clamoring for chicken.

The two new McDonald’s spicy chicken menu items are Spicy BBQ Glazed Tenders and Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich. If the tenders sound a little familiar, previously McDonald’s had a BBQ chicken tender limited time offer. That menu item was well received.

The Spicy BBQ Glazed Tender takes the Buttermilk Crispy Tender and tosses them in the Spicy BBQ glaze. There is a hint of jalapeno which adds the kick of heat. It isn’t too overpowering, yet it should be quite tasty.

The Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich takes the Buttermilk Crispy fillet and adds the Spicy BBQ glaze. Served on a sesame seed bun, the chicken is topped with slivered onions and pickles.

Based on this description, the sandwich should balance a sweet heat. The buttermilk offers some tangy flavors while the sauce brings just the right amount of spice. There might be a slow, burn but nothing too overpowering.

Looking at many of McDonald’s recent menu additions, the company shows that it is looking to bring big, bold flavors to guests. Just looking at the hugely popular International Menu, these flavors are more than just a burger on a bun.

All the components taken as a whole make for a complete bite. Plain and timid is becoming old school. Today, consumers want flavors that make their taste buds take notice.

Still, this spicy chicken menu is approachable. The flavors aren’t too overpowering that even the spice adverse wouldn’t want to try a bite. Overall, the flavors are meant to keep guests excited and coming back for more.

The two new McDonald’s spicy chicken menu items will hit restaurants on September 11. It isn’t clear how long they will be featured on the menu, but they are a limited time offer.
