McDonald’s is always up to something with various menu changes, whether it’s adding a new McFlurry flavors or discontinuing items. Right now, McDonald’s Chicken Sandwiches are going big as they test the new “Grand McChicken” sandwich in certain markets. Not to be confused with the McDonald’s McCrispy, the Grand McChicken is its own beast.

We’re here to tell you exactly what you need to know about the new McDonald’s sandwich — including prices and where you can find it right now (spoiler: not many places at the moment).

You can only grab the Grand McChicken in select markets in Nevada and California.

What is the Grand McChicken? The Grand McChicken is essentially a regular McChicken — a chicken patty, lettuce, and mayo sandwiched between two buns — with a larger chicken patty.

Right now, the Grand McChicken is only available in two states: Nevada and California. Here are the cities where you can find the new McDonald’s sandwich:

  • Reno, Nevada
  • Bakersfield, California
  • Chino, California
  • Fresno, California
  • Sacramento, California


The McDonald’s Grand McChicken will cost you $4.69.

If you’re lucky enough to live near a location that offers the McDonald’s Grand McChicken, you can expect to pay $4.69 per sandwich. That’s $1.30 more than a regular McChicken (priced at $3.39).

The Grand McChicken is estimated to be about 27.2% larger than the McChicken, which matches the 27% price increase between the two McChickens.

There is no news on when the Grand McChicken will go nationwide.

Right now, no one is saying when the Grand McChicken will come to stores nationwide. In the past, we’ve seen McDonald’s take up to a year from their test to offer items for a limited-time release. We expect a similar time frame for the Grand McChicken.
