Fast Food Fridays: The Chicken McRib

Chicken McRib

I was halfway through my Chicken McRib when I realized I forgot to take a photo.

What, you’ve never heard of chicken ribs? They’re just like baby backs, but for when you’re watching portion sizes. In all seriousness, the Chicken McRib is the halal-ified answer to the regular McRib. Just like the pork version, the Chicken McRib is mechanically separated (chicken) meat formed into a rib-shaped patty and slathered with barbecue sauce. To be honest, it’s been so long since I’ve had a McRib (which is a regular menu item in Germany) that I don’t really remember what it tastes like, but I didn’t feel like I was missing out with the chicken. There’s also a double version, but you’re better off just ordering two sandwiches, as the pickle/onion-to-meat ratio is off on the double.

I’m not sure how the Chicken McRib is “awesome in more ways than one.” I guess it’s awesome that there’s a pork-free version of the cult favorite, but that’s only one kind of awesomeness. Anyway, if we’re talking about awesome chicken-based replacements, I think the shout-out should go to the chicken sausage they use in the McMuffins here. I actually prefer it to the pork version, which is not something I say very often (OK, ever).

Personally, my favorite seasonal McDonald’s item in KL is still the GCB (grilled chicken burger). Also, waffle fries, which are even better than the regular fries. What’s your favorite seasonal Mickie D’s? Tell me in the comments!
