Chicken McMuffin added to McDonald’s menus in Australia

The debate about whether a sausage or a bacon McMuffin is better has raged on for years but now a new contender is about to enter the race.

From March 13, the Chicken and Bacon McMuffin and the Chicken McMuffin will be available at Macca’s restaurants around the country.

Food influencer @Nectoriouspapi first leaked the information about the breakfast items landing in stores last week.

“We are getting a chicken McMuffin and a chicken and bacon McMuffin. I don’t know what they look like. I don’t know what the dates are yet but stay tuned,” he revealed.

McDonald’s has now confirmed the new breakfast menu additions, as well as the return of an old favourite.

A McDonald’s spokeperson told news.com.au the restaurant chain was excited to expand its breakfast offerings.

“The Chicken McMuffin features a crispy coated Chicken Patty with 100 per cent Aussie Chicken Breast, creamy McChicken Sauce on a toasted English muffin. While the Chicken and Bacon McMuffin is also topped with a Rasher Bacon for that extra crunch,” the spokesperson said.

“Following the success on the New Zealand menu, we’re thrilled to be bringing the Chicken McMuffin range to our customers. Our friends over the ditch loved it and we hope our customers do too!”

The Chicken McMuffin range is available until midday in restaurants, drive through, delivery and the MyMacca’s app.

It comes as the BLT McMuffin has returned to the menu at McDonald’s, with the fast food chain announcing a handful of deals to go with it.

From March 6, Macca’s customers can enjoy a BLT McMuffin with a small McCafe hot coffee for just $5.95.

Another offer is the Big Breakfast Deal, which features two McMuffins, two hash browns and a medium McCafe hot coffee for $12.95.

The deals are on offer until April 6.

“Our new breakfast deals are part of our ongoing commitment to serving up our great tasting, great quality menu items with even greater value,” McDonald’s Australia marketing manager Tobi Fukushima said.

“We know how much our customers love Macca’s breakfast, so these deals mean they can continue to enjoy the great Macca’s tastes they know and love at a deliciously good price, because value means more at Macca’s.”
