Spicy Chicken McNuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce will be back on the menu at McDonald’s Restaurants in the USA for a limited time starting on February 1. Breaded with a sizzling tempura coating made with both cayenne and chili peppers, this McNuggets recipe packs plenty of flavor and spice into each bite.
McD’s has dialed up the spice in its Mighty Hot Sauce since last autumn, boasting a robust blend of crushed red pepper and cayenne peppers balanced with savory garlic and a hint of sweetness. This is both McDonald’s hottest available dipping sauce ever and its first new sauce since 2017.
When Spicy Chicken McNuggets were introduced last year, it marked the first McNugget flavor innovation since the iconic item debuted in 1983. But over a 40-year history, Chicken McNuggets have been tweaked and upgraded several times – from rolling out new dipping sauces like Tangy Barbeque and Honey Mustard to removing all artificial preservatives, colors and flavors back in 2016.
