Look out Popeyes! McDonald’s plans to add a new crispy chicken sandwich to menus in early 2021. Mickey D’s will formally enter the chicken sandwich fray. The “Crispy Chicken Sandwich” had a brief trial run in Houston, Texas, and in Knoxville, Tennessee, last winter.

The Crispy Chicken Sandwich will hit menus in U.S. markets early next year. According to a release on its “Accelerating the Arches” plans. A debut date was not disclosed. During the Crispy Chicken Sandwich’s test in Texas and Tennessee, the sandwich was served as a dressed-down version of the chain’s other chicken sandwiches, featuring a fried chicken filet served on a potato roll, topped with butter and pickles.

A deluxe version included tomatoes, lettuce and mayo. In a victory for vegetarians, the Golden Arches also announced it will begin testing a plant-based burger (of course) called the “McPlant” early next year.
