This year brought exciting news for McDonald's fans: at the top of 2021, the golden-arched chain was finally slated to launch their long-awaited chicken sandwich.

By February, the chain announced they would be doing so in style—the new menu item was commemorated with its own website and custom merchandise. And now, just days after the Crispy Chicken Sandwich officially hit menus nationwide, Mickey D's is celebrating with another unprecedented swing: they're giving away the "crispyjuicytender" creation for free.

You can snag a free Crispy Chicken Sandwich any time during the first week of March, simply by using your phone. Break out the DoorDash app, and place your order of $15 or more in McDonald's favorites. Then, use the code CRISPY at checkout, and voila! The new chicken sandwich will tack onto your order, totally free of charge.

This promotion runs from March 1 through March 7 exclusively on DoorDash. According to fans, it's well worth a try. The Crispy Chicken Sandwich, which also comes in "spicy" and "deluxe" varieties, is getting rave reviews.

Held together with a golden potato bun, the sandwich consists of a newly developed chicken fillet (thicker and juicer than past McDonald's chicken attempts) and crinkle-cut pickles. The spicy version adds "spicy pepper sauce" to that mix, for a taste that is allegedly reminiscent of Mickey D's wildly popular Spicy Chicken McNuggets. The deluxe version expands upon the basic with lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo. All three of the new sandwiches ring in at under $5.00.

Rumors are circulating that this crispy chicken creation is as good as Chick-fil-A. Decide for yourself, free of charge, during the first week of March. And for more, don't forget to sign up for our newsletter to get the latest restaurant news delivered straight to your inbox.
