McDonald’s is testing out Chicken McGriddles — a fried chicken patty nestled between two of the fast-food chain’s popular breakfast cakes. The not-so-secret menu item is being tested in Florida McDonald’s locations now until April 26.
“Chicken McGriddles have been a not-so-secret, secret McDonald’s menu item for a while, and we are thrilled to officially add it to the menu so all guests are aware and can enjoy this great sandwich,” Will Garcia, local McDonald’s owner/operator, said in a statement.
It’s being described as the "taste of chicken and waffles on-the-go,” and what better way to introduce McChicken & Waffles to the public than in a Southern market? Chicken McGriddles will be available in participating locations on the all-day breakfast menu.
The Chicken McGriddle joins another variant on a Southern favorite — the McChicken Biscuit — which features a fried chicken patty sandwiched between two buttermilk biscuits, and is also available on the all-day breakfast menu.
