McDonald's test runs of Mighty Wings in the Atlanta and Chicago markets were so successful, the company has decided to go nationwide with the new line of chicken wings. The quick-service restaurant chain will debut Mighty Wings on September 9, with a complete national roll out by September 24. The wings will be available for a limited time, as they are expected to no longer be sold at McDonald's by the end of November. 

Mighty Wings were introduced to Atlanta customers in the fall of 2012 and to the Chicago area earlier in 2013.

"We know customers are excited about this new menu item and we look forward to launching Mighty Wings nationally," the company said in a written statement.


Mighty Wings are a natural bone-in chicken wing that comes in two varieties, a drummette or a wingette. They are lightly breaded, providing a crispy bite of home-style flavor seasoned with cayenne and chili pepper delivering a solid spicy kick, the company stated. Mighty Wings will be sold in packages of three, five and 10 pieces, with prices starting at $2.99.

The Mighty Wings come with an assortment of nine sauces including chipotle barbecue sauce, creamy ranch sauce, honey mustard sauce, hot mustard sauce, spicy Buffalo sauce, sweet chili sauce, sweet and sour sauce, honey and tangy barbecue sauce.
