American fast food hamburger chain Burger King Restaurants has launched a spicy crispy chicken sandwich.

The new sandwich contains 100% white meat chicken filet blended with lettuce, tomato, mayo and coated with “bold” spicy flavours.

The new item follows the launch of Burger King’s less hot version of its crispy chicken sandwich, which was added as a permanent menu item in March 2016.

Burger King has teamed up with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight champion Conor McGregor, who appears in a new commercial advertisement to promote the new spicy sandwich.

McGregor, also a world champion fighter, said: “All this chicken and King talk swirling around out there’s got me really fired up.

“Fired up to try the new Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich at Burger King Restaurants.”
