    I like the fact that the description simply calls it a “ground chicken patty” without using that typically oxymoronic “juicy all white meat” phrase that every other chicken product uses in its description. This might actually have some flavor. I’ll give it a try if it goes national.

      Well, it’s not all white meat. It’s a blend of white and dark, so it might actually have a bit of flavor. Could be close to the old Nugget blend, minus the delicious deep-fry. As per Daily Mail – “The ground chicken burger is a first for the fast-food chain; a ground quarter-pound patty of breast and thigh meat on a new ‘gourmet’ potato bun.”

      That said, I’m still not eating a ground chicken patty from McDonalds, the idea doesn’t sit right with me.

      I’d have a guess that they had to specifically say “ground chicken” or else people would go in expecting a 100% whole chicken breast..

      Also wouldn’t be surprised if people request only white meat patties. Possibly in the re-launch after a crash and burn; Or people get up in arms over eating the “leftovers” of thigh meat and/or drumstick.

      Makes me wonder though how many people who are so in “love” with turkey bacon actually knows what goes into it. Hint: It isn’t breast meat. LOL It’s all thigh and leg ground up and wing meat for the white “fat” parts of regular bacon.
