McDonald’s is making more changes to its menu, including the addition of a new Big Mac chicken burger and the return of mozzarella dippers, but in some not-so-good news, two breakfast items have been removed.
McDonald’s fans have some major menu changes to be aware of.
The fast food chain just announced that it will be adding a Chicken Big Mac to its 1,300 restaurants starting February 2, but only for a limited time.
Mozzarella dippers and chocolate salted caramel Galaxy McFlurries will also return.
But in not-so-good news, McDonald’s angered some customers after confirming that it will eliminate its breakfast bagels and wraps.
He hinted that there will be new additions this year, though he didn’t say what they might be.
Here are all the latest Maccies updates announced this week:

Chicken Big Mac is coming
McDonald’s has revealed plans to launch the new Chicken Big Mac in the UK from February 2, but only for six weeks.
The burger is already sold in Australia, but this is the first time the British will be able to get their hands on it. It will be on UK menus until March 15.
Unsurprisingly, it’s pretty much the same as a regular Big Mac with the special sauce, but it has chicken burgers instead of beef burgers.
The Chicken Big Mac is £4.09 for the sandwich alone, or £5.59 for a medium meal with chips and a drink; you can pick up a large one for £5.99.
Are you excited about the new changes at McDonald’s? Let us know in the comments below.
Mozzarella Scoops and Galaxy McFlurries are back
Galaxy Mozzarella Dippers and Chocolate Salted Caramel McFlurries return to the menu, also on February 2, for a six-week run.
A three-scoop box of mozzarella will set you back £1.89, while a nine-scoop sharing box costs £5.09; again, prices vary based on your location.
As for dessert, a mini Galaxy or Salted Galaxy McFlurry is priced at 99p, while a regular size will cost £1.49.
These will be on the menu until March 15.
Double Big Mac is back too
The Double Big Mac, containing four mega patties instead of the usual two, will also return to UK menus on February 2.
Maccies first introduced a Double Big Mac as part of its holiday menu in 2020 and hasn’t been back since.
It’s £4.39 for the burger alone, or £5.69 for a medium meal.
You will have until March 15 to get one.
Chicken Legend reappears
McDonald’s customers were disappointed after Chicken Legend was removed from the menu in October due to supply issues.
But the iconic burger, which contains chicken breast meat, with lettuce and mayonnaise on a toasted bun, has been confirmed to return on February 2.
Maccies told The Mirror that Chicken Legend will only be available until March 15, so it doesn’t look like it’ll be a permanent menu item again at this point.
It will set you back £3.89 for a single burger or £5.29 for a medium meal.
Breakfast bagels and wraps removed
McDonald’s fans went so far as to say they would “boycott” the chain after it announced it was removing bagels and wraps from its breakfast menu.
The fast-food chain temporarily phased out bagels and wraps at the start of the pandemic but decided not to bring them back.
In a statement, the burger chain said: “Despite speculation and following a trial separation period, breakfast bagels and breakfast wraps will not return to the menu.
“We adored each other deeply, but our love for the iconic McMuffin was just too hard to ignore.”
He added: “As for the rumors that there will be a new breakfast baby on the scene later this year… no comment.”
