McDonald's launching new Big Mac with twist for first time ever in UK

You'll only have a few weeks to get your hands on one though

McDonald's is bringing out a Big Mac with a twist - swapping the beef patties for two crispy chicken fillets.

The burger will still have the signature Big Mac sauce and will be on the menu in McDonald’s 1,300 UK restaurants from February 2.

However the chicken Big Mac won't be hanging around for long - with customers only having until March 15 to order one.

The fast food giant said in a statement: "It’s one of McDonald’s most requested menu items and it’s finally here – featuring two 100% chicken breast patties in a crispy coating, a slice of cheese, lettuce, pickles and the deliciously world-famous inimitable Big Mac sauce between the iconic three-layered bun."

The chicken version will be 50p more expensive than a classic Big Mac, which costs £3.59, but prices do vary between branches.

It's £4.09 for the sandwich or £5.59 for a medium meal with chips and a drink. Alternatively, you can go large for £5.99.

It also has more calories with 544 kcal, compared to a Big Mac which has a measly 508 kcal.

The Big Mac has been on the menu in the UK since 1974.

The chicken Big Mac is already available on the menu in Australia but this will be the first time that the burger is available in the UK.

However, customers have already worked out a hack to make their own version of the burger by ordering two chicken mayo burgers and doing a bit of DIY to construct their own.

It's a good time to be a Big Mac fan, with the double version of the iconic original sandwich also returning on the same day as the chicken one.

Other returning favourites include mozzarella dippers and Galaxy chocolate and salted caramel McFlurries.

It's not all new additions to the menu though, with many being left disappointed on Monday that the fast food chain would be removing two of the 'best' items from its breakfast menu.
