SAN DIEGO – Nov. 2, 2010 – McDonald’s is kicking the McChicken sandwich up a notch by offering two bold new styles – Jalapeño Cheddar and Cheddar Onion – in its San Diego County restaurants.

McDonald’s customers who love the golden, crispy McChicken sandwich can now experience a rush of flavor with two new topping options. The Jalapeño Cheddar McChicken wakes up the taste buds with spicy jalapeño peppers and white cheddar cheese. Customers can also enjoy the savory new Cheddar Onion McChicken made with caramelized onions and white cheddar cheese, all on a perfectly toasted bun.

“By adding two bold and spicy new varieties to the classic McChicken, we’re giving customers even more flavor at a great value,” said Philip Palumbo, president of the McDonald’s Owner/Operator Association of San Diego County. “Like our classic McChicken, these two new styles are filling enough to eat on their own, but are affordable enough to combine with our World Famous fries and drink for a flavorful meal.”
