A fan favorite hits a biscuit.
FACT CHECKED BY Mura Dominko

McDonald's has a new, limited-time chicken sandwich on the menu. But this one falls into the breakfast category.

The chain confirmed to Eat This, Not That! that it is currently serving two new Crispy Chicken Breakfast sandwiches, made with all-white meat chicken fillet, fried, and served on a choice of a buttery biscuit or freshly toasted English muffin. However, these items are only available at select locations in several states, one of which is Ohio. According to a local report, all Cincinnati locations are currently serving it.

The special offering will be available until April 4.

The fast-food giant has debuted chicken breakfast items before, like the McChicken Biscuit, Chicken McGriddle, and recently, the Crispy Chicken Breakfast Sandwich with bacon.

While not the top contender in the Chicken Sandwich Wars that started in 2019, McDonald's has always embraced the popularity of chicken. Most recently, it released three new Crispy Chicken Sandwiches, which are similar to the Southern Style Chicken Sandwich and Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich that were discontinued years ago.

Sure, the original McChicken remains a menu staple, but these new adaptations opted for a "filet" of meat, rather than the patty style of the original. Critics have cited the "spongy" texture of the McChicken patty as the reason why the sandwich was a poor contender against Popeyes and Chick-fil-A.

According to a local news report, the new Crispy Chicken Breakfast Sandwich will only be available for a short time but may return again in February or March of next year.
