McDonald’s new breakfast options are picking a side in the chicken versus egg debate. These chicken breakfast options are now available for everyone.

Looking for a great way to start the day? McDonald’s new breakfast options are coming to a quick service restaurant near you. The two new chicken breakfast options are putting the chicken before the egg for your morning meal. Are you ready to enjoy a taste?

McDonald’s has been a leader in the quick service breakfast category. After offering the all-day breakfast menu, McDonald’s proved that breakfast is limited to just a particular hour of the day. Breakfast sandwiches are just as tasty for dinner as they are at 6 a.m.

Over the past year, chicken sandwiches have been the ultimate foodie battle. While the battle over the best Southern style chicken sandwich continues, the popularity of chicken dishes has not waned. Now, chicken has found its way to the breakfast menu.

McDonald’s new breakfast options are two McChicken options, the Chicken McGriddles and McChicken Biscuit. The two new menu options build on existing McDonald’s breakfast options.

For decades, the McDonald’s biscuit has always been a tasty choice. Whether served as a sandwich or as a side to a Big Breakfast, that flakey biscuit is always a great way to start the day.

The McChicken Biscuit takes the classic McChicken and places it between the traditional biscuit. Unlike other chicken biscuits, it is just McChicken and a biscuit. If you are looking to boost the flavor, add a touch of hot sauce.

For a sweeter option, the Chicken McGriddles offers a sweet and savory bite. The classic McChicken is paired with those always tempting McGriddles. In a way, it is like a simplified version of chicken and waffles, without the potential of dripping syrup.

With this breakfast expansion, McDonald’s sets a high bar for other quick service restaurants. Today’s consumers want more and more breakfast options. Whether it is chicken or plant-based food options, breakfast is more than just eggs, bacon and pancakes.

Given McDonald’s decision to expand with these McChicken breakfast options, it proposes that chicken will continue to be a big draw in the quick service space. While beef will always be on the menu, people are wanting more chicken options. Whether it is variety or a change in preferences, this food trend is not going away.

The McDonald’s new breakfast options will be available for a limited time. If you want to try one, it is best to hurry into your local restaurant sooner versus later.
