CHICAGO – McDonald’s Corp. is adding two new chicken items to its morning menu nationwide.

The Chicken McGriddle features a McChicken between warm maple griddle cakes. The McChicken Biscuit pairs the classic sandwich with a buttery biscuit.

The menu additions, which already are a staple for McDonald’s Southern customers, will be available as early as 6 a.m. for a limited time.

“With the nationwide launch of the Chicken McGriddles and McChicken Biscuit sandwiches, we’re giving our customers more of what they crave: mouthwatering chicken and breakfast options,” said Linda VanGosen, vice president of menu innovation at McDonald’s. “McDonald’s is committed to remaining a leader in the quick-service breakfast category through our delicious offerings, consistent menu innovation and a faster drive-thru experience.”

McDonald’s isn’t the only QSR adding chicken to its morning menu. Wendy’s national breakfast menu, set to launch early this year, will include Honey Butter Chicken Biscuits and Maple Bacon Chicken Croissants.
