Your questions answered

  How long does it take to cook this sandwich?

Chicken used to make the McChicken Sandwich is cooked for three minutes and 30 seconds. It may take a little longer to prepare the whole sandwich because the bun also needs to be toasted and the other ingredients added.

I love the mayo in this sandwich but it tastes different, why is that?

We actually use our own sandwich sauce for the McChicken Sandwich, which may be why you cannot find another mayonnaise that tastes the same.

What type of chicken goes into this sandwich?
