It's morning in America and McDonald's is pretty sure you want to eat fried chicken on a biscuit.

The Chicago Tribune is reporting that McDonald's has seen so much cash from their chicken menu items that they're adding some to the breakfast menu. Get ready to sink your teeth into the Southern Style Chicken Biscuit and the Southern Style Chicken Sandwhich. Chicken sandwich experts (or whatever) accuse McDonald's of copying Chic-Fil-A which apparently has been offering a chicken breakfast biscuit since 1986.

McDonald's Southern-style items are simple affairs. The sandwich, which has a suggested retail price of $2.89, comes on plain steamed bun, with butter and two pickles its sole condiments. The biscuit, which goes for $1.89, comes adorned only with butter.

Both arrived in stores nationwide within the past two weeks, and a national ad campaign began last week. On Thursday, customers who buy any medium or large drink at McDonald's 14,000 U.S. restaurants can receive a free Southern-style sandwich or breakfast biscuit.Customers can try the Southern Style Chicken Biscuit from 7:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m., or a Southern Style Chicken Sandwich beginning after breakfast hours until 7:00 p.m., with the purchase of any medium or large beverage at participating restaurants (while supplies last).

Now, I am still dieting, so this doesn't fit in with my meal plan, but I thought I would share it with my bloggy friends....go get your free biscuit or sandwich today~
