McDonald’s McChicken Biscuit

McDonald’s just added the McChicken Biscuit to breakfast menus all across the country. The new menu item, which clocks in at 420 calories, is brushed with real butter and contains no artificial ingredients, just like the new Chicken McGriddles.

The McChicken Biscuit is basic, and that’s OK. It features a crispy chicken breast fillet sandwiched between a warm buttermilk biscuit that comes brushed with butter.

To burn off the calories in a McChicken Biscuit, you can go jogging on a treadmill or outdoors for 40 minutes or you can jump rope at a moderate pace for 32 minutes.
