September 05, 2019

Limited time offers will be heating up menus nationwide later this month

CHICAGO, September 5, 2019 – September just got a whole lot saucier at McDonald’s.

Introducing McDonald’s new Spicy BBQ Glazed Tenders and Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich, two new chicken menu items coming to participating restaurants nationwide for a limited time beginning on September 11. Perfectly sauced with just the right amount of spice, the new offerings are set to be an unexpected, feel-good boost to any occasion, from backyard parties to tailgates.

  • Spicy BBQ Glazed Tenders: Picture our classic Buttermilk Crispy Tenders, battered and breaded to perfection, hand-tossed and perfectly sauced to order in our new, mouthwatering Spicy BBQ glaze that contains just a hint of jalapeno.
  • Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich: This BBQ staple features our classic Buttermilk Crispy fillet made with all-white meat and served on a sesame seed bun with slivered onions, pickles and topped with that same smoky, sweet, with medium heat Spicy BBQ glaze.

“The excitement that spicy flavors bring is something we know our customers have always loved,” said Todd Manisco, Manager of Menu Innovation at McDonald’s. “And we’re thrilled to now be offering up that excitement nationwide with a tasty kick to our chicken menu.”

Our new Spicy BBQ Glazed Tenders and Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich are just the latest evolution in McDonald’s chicken offerings. From introducing our fan-favorite Chicken McNuggets nationwide and the removal of artificial preservatives from this beloved menu item, to the launch of our battered and breaded-to-perfection Buttermilk Crispy Tenders, McDonald’s has consistently strived to bring our customers craveable and delicious chicken options.

And we can’t wait to show you what’s next.
