McDonald's launches CHICKEN Big Mac for the first time in Britain

The CHICKEN Big Mac: McDonald’s is set to sell classic burger with a poultry twist from February… after removing bagels and wraps from breakfast menu

  • Chicken Big Mac features two fried chicken patties instead of the normal beef 
  • Burger will be launched from February 2 but only for six weeks until March 15
  • Chicken Big Mac will cost £4.09 for the sandwich and £5.59 for medium meal 
  • McDonald’s also confirms Chicken Legend will be returning from next month
  • McDonald’s revealed today it will launch a Chicken Big Mac burger for the first time in Britain next month, nearly 50 years after bringing out the classic beef version.

    The burger, which was released six years ago in Australia, features two fried chicken patties instead of the normal beef in three bun slices as well as the Big Mac sauce.

    The chain will launch the burger across its 1,300 outlets in the UK from February 2 although it will initially only be on the menu for six weeks until March 15.

    The Chicken Big Mac will cost £4.09 for the sandwich – which is 50p more than a normal Big Mac – £5.59 for a medium meal with chips and a drink or £5.99 for a large.

    The chicken burger will have more calories than the beef version – 544 compared to 508 – and the Double Big Mac will also return to menus on the same day next month. 

    McDonald’s also confirmed that the Chicken Legend, which was temporarily taken off the menu last year, will be returning from next month, reported The Sun.

    It comes after the chain launched its McPlant burger, made with a meat-free patty and vegan cheese, last month. The original beef Big Mac came out in the UK in 1974.

    Yesterday, McDonald’s customers were left devastated after the chain announced its breakfast bagels and wraps will be permanently removed from the menu.

    Fans of the items tweeted crying emojis and said they were the ‘only breakfast items we ate in this house’ and that it was ‘the actual worst decision you’ve ever made’. 

    The options were both removed from a new reduced menu when the chain gradually reopened its stores in May 2020 after they had closed when the pandemic began.

    Many customers had been hoping that the bagels and wraps would be reintroduced but McDonald’s confirmed today they were now ‘officially gone from the menu’.

    The chain added that it was reducing the price of McMuffins to 99p yesterday via its app in an attempt to soften the blow. 

    The chain told MailOnline the bagels and wraps were first added to its offering in 2011 and had therefore spent nine years on the menu before being removed in 2020.
