Although it’s an exciting addition to the McDonald’s menu, the Grand McChicken is still in its trial phase. This means only select markets on the West Coast have access to the chain’s new chicken sandwich. Currently, the Grand McChicken is available at McDonald’s stores in various California cities, including Bakersfield, Chico, Fresno, and Sacramento. Select locations in Nevada, including Reno, will also carry the new sandwich. If you want to avoid lines at the drive-thru, the Grand McChicken is also available via McDelivery and on the McDonald’s app.
The Grand McChicken is distinct from the McCrispy, another popular chicken sandwich at McDonald’s. Its crispy chicken sandwich features white meat chicken breast on a potato bun, while the McChicken has a plain bun and uses a mix of both white and dark meat for the patty.
The chain may only be testing the Grand McChicken for the moment, but if it wins over customers and expands into national markets, then we may eventually see even a spicy Grand McChicken and other large-scale editions of classic McDonald’s menu items, too.
