Chicken McGriddles are nothing new to longtime McDonald's eaters, as they've been tested a couple of times and can be ordered via the secret menu right around 10:30 every morning. However, we have our first official signs that McDonald's may be bringing the cult favorite nationwide.
In Southern California, Chicken McGriddles have been popping up on value breakfast menus at several locations. They're mainly sold as part of a 2 for $3 deal, and some locations even have them on the $1 $2 $3 menu during the AM hours.
The other half of that 2 for $3 deal is a relatively new sandwich to the McDonald's crowd: McChicken Biscuits. These sandwiches aren't 100% identical to the original McChicken, since there's no lettuce or mayo inside of the fried chicken biscuit. However, it does give McDonald's a morning meal option akin to those that Chick-fil-A and Whataburger have been slinging for years now.
Both items can be currently viewed on the McDonald's website, although no official photos of either item have gone up yet. The McChicken Biscuit is listed at 430 calories and 1060 mg of sodium per sandwich, while the Chicken McGriddle contains 390 calories and 1000 mg of sodium.
As of right now, it's unclear whether this distribution will be spread out across the nation, or if this is just a major regional test. McDonald's has yet to respond to a request for comment from Foodbeast on the new sandwiches.
