McDonald's launches chicken combo in time for the World Cup

McDonald's launches chicken combo in time for the World Cup

McDonald’s has launched a brand-new chicken combo sharebox just in time for the World Cup to kick off on Sunday.

With just days until the 2022 World Cup starts, McDonald’s has announced a new chicken combo that serves four people - making it ideal to tuck into while watching the match with your pals... or have the whole lot to yourself.

I’m not judging you!

Costing £15.99 (€21), the McDelivery Chicken Combo includes 10 Chicken Selects and a 20 Chicken McNuggets Sharebox – plus four Selects dips and four standard dips.

The offer is only available via delivery and goes live on Sunday 20 November, to coincide with the World Cup starting.

And as well as filling your belly, customers who use the app to make a purchase from McDonald’s will also be helping out a good cause.

Via its partnership with food waste charity Food Share, McDonald’s will be donating 100 Reward points for every single order made through its app on days when either England or Wales play between 19 November and 19 December.

This equates to the redistribution of two meals for every five orders made through the app on those days. So you can feel good while stuffing your face.

Chicken-lovers were delighted last month when McDonald’s announced its first permanent burger addition in 15 years in the form of the McCrispy.

As fast-food fans will know, McDonald’s routinely adds and removes items from its menu to keep things interesting - such as halloumi fries and a seeming unending variety of McFlurries.

But for the first time in 15 years it revealed it would be adding a new chicken burger to the mix and it wouldn’t be vanishing any time soon.

The McCrispy burger is described by the fast food chain as having a 'crunchy 100 percent chicken breast fillet, marinated in black pepper and cayenne’ as well as lashings of 'classic mayonnaise with cracked black pepper and a savoury roasted chicken flavour' all served up in a 'delicious sourdough-style sesame topped bun’. Oof.

You may remember that back in March, McDonald’s launched a similar burger - called the Crispy McFillet burger - for a short run.

And it appears to have been such a hit that the fast-food chain decided to launch something more long-term.

Radio and TV presenter Maya Jama became the face of the McCrispy, saying at the time: "I love a chicken burger and am a self-confessed chicken connoisseur, so when I found out Maccies was launching this new burger, I had to get involved."
