If you like chicken, you’ll be loving McDonald’s new limited-time breakfast menu items.

The fast-food chain has added two new chicken sandwiches, a McChicken Biscuit and a Chicken McGriddles sandwich.

McDonald’s had been testing chicken breakfast sandwiches in several markets across the U.S. and now is making the items available nationwide at participating restaurants for a limited time.

”We received such positive feedback from fans who have tried the Chicken McGriddles and the McChicken Biscuit sandwiches that we wanted to make sure everyone across the country could enjoy them too,” said McDonald’s vice president of menu innovationLinda VanGosen.

The Chicken McGriddles sandwich houses a McChicken between two griddle cakes, while the other option has a warm biscuit with the chicken.McDonald’s is also testing a new crispy chicken sandwich in Houston and Knoxville, Tennessee.

McDonald’s breakfast move could be seen asthe latest offensive targeting competitor Chick-fil-A, which also offers breakfast chicken sandwiches.

The fast-food chain did not elaborate on how long the limited-time offering would last, but said demand could lead to somelocal markets bringing them back in the future. “This gives our restaurants flexibility with offering new menu items based on market trends while still maintaining a menu of fan favorites for their customers,” VanGosen said.
