McDonald’s Australia has taken on fast food giant KFC with the launch of its own new range of Southern-style fried chicken.
The fast food restaurant is quietly testing the ‘exclusive’ menu item at select stores in New South Wales and South Australia.
“It’s part of our commitment to growing our chicken menu and giving our customers even more choice,” a McDonald’s spokeswoman told Daily Mail Australia.
“We look forward to customer feedback about the trial.”
Food blogger Adrian Widjonarko got a three-piece fried chicken meal for $13.30 after discovering the new menu item at the Waterloo outlet in Sydney.

‘Finally I’m trying this exclusive Maccas Southern-style fried chicken, looks so delicious. Let’s see how it is,” he said in his TikTok video.
“I got the three pieces as a meal — it was $13.30. It’s so good. I personally love it. It’s a must try.’
The chicken comes in several options — including one piece for $3.20, five pieces for $13.95, or a 10-piece for $25.95.
His video has since been viewed more than 60,000 times, with many saying they couldn’t wait to try the new fried chicken.

When asked if KFC or McDonald’s was better, Adrian replied, “I like this, but also KFC – I can’t choose, I’d eat them both.”
Some Aussies said they remember ordering fried chicken from Maccas growing up.
“Many moons ago they would sell chicken on their menu…I don’t know why they threw it away,” one woman wrote, while another added: “They used to have chicken on the menu in the 80s.”
