The poultry offering is made with a chicken breast filet that's marinated in buttermilk and battered with buttermilk. It's also blended with onion powder, garlic and black pepper. The upgraded protein is intended to replace the current crispy chicken. This includes traditional McDonald's items like wraps, salads and chicken sandwiches.
Earlier this year, the Buttermilk Crispy Chicken was tested at select locations. It's now available at all McDonald's restaurants across the US.
Brand Eating also notes that the new crispy chicken is cooked in the same fryers as the Chicken McNuggets for those with a milk allergy.
