About this Deal

McDonald's has brought back the heat.

Spicy Chicken McNuggets and the Mighty Hot Sauce are available for a limited time starting Monday.

The hot nuggets and sauce both debuted for their first run in mid-September and it was the first flavor McDonald's USA introduced to the McNugget since the product debuted in 1983. The nuggets are breaded with a tempura coating made of both cayenne and chili peppers, and the sauce combines crushed red pepper, spicy chilis and savory garlic.

McDonald's is marking the return by giving away free orders of six-piece nuggets Tuesday through Saturday, Feb. 6, exclusively with McDelivery through DoorDash orders of $20 or more using promo code SPICY.

McDonald's is bringing back its Spicy Chicken McNuggets starting Feb. 1.
McDonald's said the McNuggets contributed to September sales being the best in nearly a decade. The "Spicesurance" buy-one-get-one-free deal held Sept. 15, which was only available on the McDonald's mobile app, drove record-breaking app traffic, the company said.

Another spicy item is also on its way to the fast-food giant. Starting Feb. 24, McDonald's will release three new chicken sandwiches including the Spicy Chicken Sandwich with a spicy pepper sauce.

Restaurants have been heating up the chicken competition with new spicy products. Last week, Chick-fil-A released its new limited-time Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich at participating restaurants nationwide. Boston Market also has a new Nashville Hot Crispy Chicken Sandwich, its first crispy chicken sandwich.

McDonald's President and CEO Chris Kempczinski said last week that one of the company's highest ambitions is developing a reputation for great chicken.


"We're building on the strength of core equities like Chicken McNuggets and McChicken sandwiches, which have seen significant growth, as we continue to focus on improving our large chicken sandwich offerings around the world," Kempczinski said during the company's Jan. 28 earnings call. "We're excited about the return of Spicy Chicken McNuggets and the launch of the new Crispy Chicken Sandwich at the end of February."
