McDonald’s bringing back Spicy Chicken McNuggets

INDIANA (ADAMS) – A fan-favorite at McDonald’s is set to return.

On Tuesday, the fast-food chain announced that Spicy Chicken Nuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce are going to be on the menu for a limited time.

McDonald’s released the following:

“They came. You loved them (thanks for the tens of thousands of tweets, by the way). They left. You wanted them back.

You pleaded… And even said “pleeeaaassse”…

Good things come to those who ask politely, which is why McDonald’s Spicy Chicken McNuggets® and Mighty Hot Sauce will be returning to participating restaurants nationwide Feb. 1 for a limited time! For those that need a refresher:

  • Spicy Chicken McNuggets: Breaded with a sizzling tempura coating made with both cayenne and chili peppers, Spicy Chicken McNuggets pack plenty of flavor and spice into each bite.
  • Mighty Hot Sauce: Our new Mighty Hot Sauce dialed up the spice last Fall, boasting a powerful blend of crushed red pepper and cayenne peppers, all balanced with savory garlic and a hint of sweetness. This is both McDonald’s hottest available dipping sauce and our first new sauce since 2017.

As an added bonus, from Feb. 2 – 6, customers can get a FREE 6-piece Spicy Chicken McNuggets exclusively on their McDelivery with Door Dash* order of $20 or more, using code SPICY.

When we introduced Spicy Chicken McNuggets last year, it marked the first-ever McNugget flavor innovation since this iconic menu item was introduced in 1983. But over their 40-year history, we’ve upgraded our beloved Chicken McNuggets several times – from rolling out new dipping sauces like Tangy Barbeque and Honey Mustard to removing all artificial preservatives, colors and flavors back in 2016. All to serve our customers even more of the flavors and quality ingredients they love.

So let the countdown to Feb. 1 begin, and make sure to snag your Spicy Chicken McNuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce orders fast, since the hottest menu items in town won’t stick around forever.  And chicken fans can rest assured that we’re not stopping here – be on the lookout for more delicious options hitting our menus soon.”
