McDonald's is adding a new item to its Signature Collection today: the Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Burger (above right, next to the Classic Angus Cheese). It's described as:
Crisp on the outside and juicy on the inside, the Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Burger features a piece of whole-muscle chicken thigh flavoured with buttermilk laid atop a bed of romaine lettuce and a slice of creamy, melt-in-your-mouth New Zealand Colby Cheese. Drizzled with black pepper mayonnaise, the chicken patty is topped with crunchy purple cabbage and grilled pineapple rings, all sandwiched between a beautifully glazed bun.
I know I just posted about PBD's buttermilk fried chicken sandwich, but this is one I definitely have to try to see how it is.
The @mcdsg #Buttermilk Crispy Chicken #burger. Sadly, it's literally dripping with oil. It's made with whole chicken thigh and the staff told me they leave the skin on. Would have been better to use chicken breast if that's the case. Or find some way to make it less #greasy. For a permanent #Signature item, this one needs some improvement. #GimmeMcSpicy
I think there's plenty of room for improvement. The chicken patty is way too greasy; I had oil drips on the table while eating. I couldn't finish even half the burger. McD might need to lose the skin (although I love a good crispy skin). The batter should be crispy enough compensation. I don't know. The McSpicy itself is just right.
The Buttermilk Crispy Chicken Extra Value Meal, served with French Fries (M) and a refreshing glass of Coke (S), is available from S$8.95. Upgrade your Extra Value Meal at an additional S$0.60 to enjoy the all-new Roasted Sesame and Seaweed Shaker Fries (L) as shown above. The burger is also available a la carte from S$6.95.
The Buttermilk Crispy Chicken is available after breakfast hours in all restaurants and via McDelivery® from 13 April 2017. The Roasted Sesame and Seaweed Shaker Fries are available while stocks last.
