CHICAGO – Spicy Chicken McNuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce will be available Sept. 16 at McDonald’s restaurants for a limited time, the company announced.

“This is the first time we’ve introduced a new flavor of our classic Chicken McNuggets in the US since they came to menus in 1983,” said Linda VanGosen, vice president of menu innovation. “As our customers have been asking for Spicy McNuggets for some time now, we couldn’t think of a better time to bring them to our menus. We can’t wait for McNuggets fans to get a taste of these new spicy options.”

 The McNuggets are breaded with a tempura coating made of both cayenne and chili peppers, the company said. The Mighty Hot Sauce, McDonald’s first new sauce innovation since 2017, features a blend of crushed red peppers and spicy chilis.
