    McDonald’s Spicy Chicken McNuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce will be returning to participating restaurants nationwide February 1 for a limited time.

    Spicy Chicken McNuggets: Breaded with a sizzling tempura coating made with both cayenne and chili peppers.

    Mighty Hot Sauce: Mighty Hot Sauce dialed up the spice last fall, boasting a powerful blend of crushed red pepper and cayenne peppers, all balanced with savory garlic and a hint of sweetness. This is both McDonald’s hottest available dipping sauce and its first new sauce since 2017.

    As an added bonus, from February 2–6, customers can get a free 6-piece Spicy Chicken McNuggets exclusively on their McDelivery with Door Dash order of $20 or more, using code SPICY.

    When the chain introduced Spicy Chicken McNuggets last year, it marked the first-ever McNugget flavor innovation since this iconic menu item was introduced in 1983. But over their 40-year history, McDonald’s upgraded its Chicken McNuggets several times—from rolling out new dipping sauces like Tangy Barbeque and Honey Mustard to removing all artificial preservatives, colors and flavors back in 2016.
