Made with 100% Chicken Breast Meat

Are you a Chicken McNuggets® or a Chicken Legend® fan? Do you prefer Chicken Selects® or a Crispy Chicken Wrap? We only use chicken breast meat across our entire chicken range.

Here at McDonald’s UK, we might be famous for our beef burgers, but we care just as much about the chicken we serve.

We’re proud of the suppliers we use and we won’t work with anyone who does not adhere to our own high standards of animal welfare, as well as those required by UK and EU legislation. Why is this important? Because great tasting food made with quality ingredients is one of our top priorities. So if suppliers don’t meet these standards, we don’t work with them.


Jake Boys Answers Your Questions About McDonald's Chicken McNuggets®

The chicken in our McNuggets is 100% chicken breast too. It’s chopped into small pieces in order to make it easier to shape and eat. In our restaurants, each Chicken McNugget is cooked by our teams until perfectly crisp and served nice and hot. Just the way a Chicken McNugget should be eaten.
