CHICAGO – McDonald's Corp. is heating up its chicken menu with two new offerings sporting a spicy barbecue sauce. Made with jalapeños, the sauce offers a "smoky, sweet, medium heat" flavor profile, McDonald's said.

The new Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich features a buttermilk crispy chicken fillet made with all-white meat chicken topped with slivered onions, pickles and a spicy barbecue sauce glaze served on a sesame seed bun.

The Spicy BBQ Glazed Tenders feature battered and breaded buttermilk crispy tenders tossed in the spicy barbecue sauce glaze.

“The excitement that spicy flavors bring is something we know our customers have always loved,” said Todd Manisco, manager of menu innovation at McDonald’s. “And we’re thrilled to now be offering up that excitement nationwide with a tasty kick to our chicken menu.”

The new Spicy BBQ Chicken Sandwich and Spicy BBQ Glazed Tenders will be available for a limited time beginning September 11.
