What is the Chicken Big Mac?
The Chicken Big Mac is a copycat of the original Big Mac but replaces beef patties with chicken burgers.
That means it has the triple layer bun, two crispy chicken patties and, of course, all the other bits that create the legendary burger – cheese, lettuce, pickles, and the secret Big Mac sauce. 
The burger on its own costs £4.09, or £5.59 as part of a meal, which includes chips and a drink.
When is it being released in the UK?
The Chicken Big Mac was available in restaurants from February 2.
But yesterday, McDonald’s announced it has had to take the new burger off the menu because of high demand.
The chain took to Twitter to announce the news, saying that the burger is “sold out almost everywhere” after launching in stores on February 1.
However, it announced that the snack would be “back soon”.
When it was launched, Maccies said the limited edition chicken burger will only be on sale for six weeks, meaning you’ve got until March 15 to give it a try.
That’s not the only change to McDonald’s menu this month.
Mozzarella dippers, the Chicken Legend and the Galaxy McFlurry are all making return to restaurants.
However, that means the BBQ bacon stack will disappear from the menu from today.
