We don’t know what we’ve done to deserve it, but our chicken burger prayers have been answered – that’s right, the NEW McCrispy (previously known as the Crispy McFillet, but this time with a few changes) is BACK! Crispy, crunchy, and down-right delicious, the new burger will launch on the 19 October, becoming McDonald’s first permanent chicken burger since 2007. That’s when you know it’s going to be good.
So, let’s take a look at it, shall we?
- The bun: A 4 inch artisan bun made using sourdough to give it a sweet, nutty toasted flavour. It’s then glazed and sprinkled with sesame seeds. Fancy, huh?
- The burger: The star of the show is a crunchy chicken breast fillet marinaded in black pepper and cayenne for a subtle kick. The coating adds more black pepper and lemon for a light citrussy flavour. Delicious.
- The mayo: A classic mayonnaise with cracked black pepper and savoury chicken seasoning. We need this by the bottle, please!
Don’t just take our word for it, the McCrispy comes with big celebrity backing. DJ, presenter, and all-round McDonald’s fan girl, Maya Jama, has this to say about the new menu addition: “I love a chicken burger and am a self confessed chicken connoisseur, so when I found out Maccie’s was launching this new burger, I knew I had to get involved.”
The new TV ad will star comedian Keith Lemon, rapper Michael Dapaah, girl-boss gamer, Elz The Witch, and, of course, Maya Jama.
Mark your calendars for the 19 of October, people!
