Global fast-food chain McDonald’s has expanded its menu with the addition of sweet ‘n’ spicy honey BBQ glazed chicken tenders.

The item is available in four-piece, six-piece and ten-piece servings at participating restaurants across the US for a limited time.

The chicken is made with McDonald’s buttermilk tenders mixed up with sweet ‘n’ spicy honey BBQ glaze. The glaze is prepared with brown sugar and a range of spices such as chilli pepper, garlic powder and paprika.

“We are building on the success of our buttermilk crispy tenders by offering a new craveable sweet and spicy taste.”

McDonald’s US menu and brand strategy vice-president Linda VanGosen said: “We share our customers’ love of chicken. A better McDonald’s means more chicken options and delicious new tastes.

“We are building on the success of our buttermilk crispy tenders by offering a new craveable sweet and spicy taste we know our guests will love.”

McDonald’s is also offering customers a chance to order the new BBQ glazed chicken tenders through its McDelivery service on UberEats.

The fast food chain introduced a classic chicken sandwich in January this year, buttermilk crispy tenders in late 2017 and chicken McNuggets in mid-2016.

The classic chicken sandwich is made using white meat chicken filet, the chain’s signature sauce and tart pickles served on a steamed bun.
