A review of McDonald’s chicken breakfast sandwiches
By Jerrison Oracion, Senior Columnist
At first, dinner collaborated with breakfast to make chicken and waffles. After that, US McDonald’s offered the Southern Chicken Breakfast Sandwich: chicken with pickles on top, sandwiched by a biscuit. Now, it has finally come to Canada—the difference being that they are putting the chicken in their signature breakfast sandwiches.
McDonald’s is offering chicken versions of the McMuffin and the McGriddle. They replace the egg with chicken breast. In the case of the McMuffin, they put an additional topping—causing it to look like the McChicken for breakfast. It is the opposite of all-day breakfast—instead you eat lunch for breakfast. Though it is important to note: the chicken breakfast sandwiches are only available during breakfast time.
The Chicken McMuffin is the McMuffin with chicken breast, cheese, and surprisingly, McChicken sauce. When I was eating it, the sandwich did taste like the McChicken though they did not put the same chicken breast that is in the McChicken. The sauce added more flavour and made the sandwich creamier.
The Chicken McGriddle is just the new chicken breast between two hotcakes and no additional toppings. It is like a breakfast meal put in a sandwich. It also reminds me of the taste of putting maple syrup on top of chicken when eating chicken and waffles. The sandwich is very delicious, and the hot cakes add an enjoyable sweetness to the salty chicken breast.
For anyone that likes to eat chicken for breakfast, you can finally have it with McDonald’s chicken breakfast sandwiches! Maybe in the future these items will be added to their all-day breakfast menu which is available for carryout and food delivery.
