Chicken, Fish and Pork
- McChicken – Also offered as the Hot 'n Spicy in some markets, it is a mildly spicy chicken sandwich. Made from 100% ground white meat chicken, mayonnaise, and shredded lettuce, on a toasted bun. It was introduced in 1980, then later removed, but then later reintroduced in 1988. In some markets it is not spicy, and in others a cajun spiced version is also offered. It still remains one of the biggest sellers, just behind the Big Mac. This was replaced with the Crispy Chicken Deluxe in 1996 and brought back in 1998. In Australia the average serving size for a Mc Chicken is 185 grams.
- Premium chicken sandwiches – The Classic is a rebranding of the Crispy Chicken and Chicken McGrill sandwiches, with mayonnaise, leaf lettuce, and a tomato slice. The Ranch BLT contains ranch sauce instead of mayonnaise and includes bacon. The Club is similar to the Classic with added bacon and a piece of Swiss cheese. In Latin America, there are the Classic, the Club, but instead of the BLT, a Honey-mustard chicken sandwich. All are served on a whole-grain roll, with either a grilled or crispy chicken breast.
- Southern Style Chicken Sandwich – A southern-style fried chicken breast filet, on a steamed bun, dressed with butter and two pickles. Nearly identical to a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich.
- Snack Wrap – McDonald's version of a wrap made with white meat chicken breast (crispy or grilled), lettuce, shredded Cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese, and a sauce (Spicy Buffalo, Ranch, Honey Mustard, Chipotle barbecue, or Salsa Roja, the breakfast sauce on the McSkillet), wrapped in a soft flour tortilla. Officially launched on July 1, 2006. Chipotle BBQ is the most recent flavor. Available in the United States, The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and Brazil. There is also a Mac Snack Wrap which features the fixings of the Big Mac, but without the bun and wrapped in a tortilla shell, and uses one half of a piece of quarter meat.
- Chicken Fajita – Chicken, cheese, red and green bell peppers, and diced onions in a flour tortilla. Comes with Picante sauce packets on request, which are available in mild and spicy. Available in only a few markets.
- Chicken McNuggets – Introduced in 1980 as a replacement for the McChicken, these are small chicken chunks served with dipping sauces of Barbecue, Sweet n' Sour, Honey, and Hot Mustard. Available in 4, 6, 10 (originally 9), or 20 pieces. Up until 2003, they were a combination of white and dark meat, now they are made with only white meat. In 2011, 4 new dipping sauces were introduced and added to the lineup: Sweet Chili, Honey Mustard, Spicy Buffalo, and Creamy Ranch.
- Chicken Selects – McDonald's version of chicken strips. They were introduced since early-1998 and offered again as a permanent part of the menu in late-October 2003. They are sold in 3, 5, or 10 pieces sizes and include choices of spicy buffalo, creamy ranch, Honey Mustard, and Chipotle barbecue dipping sauces; sauce selections in the UK are smokey barbecue, sour cream and sweet chili sauce. Sold in the United States, Canada, Israel and the UK. Available in Australia under the name Chicken McDippers.
- Filet-O-Fish – A whitefish fillet with tartar sauce and a half slice of cheese, on a steamed bun. It was introduced in Cincinnati in 1962 when it was discovered that many Roman Catholics chose to eat at Frisch's Big Boy on Fridays and during Lent, as it offered a fish sandwich so they could go without meat. This was replaced with the Fish Filet Deluxe in 1996 and brought back in 1998 albeit a larger fish patty.
- McRib – A sandwich featuring boneless pork with barbecue sauce, slivered onions, and pickles. First seen in test-market stores near interstate highways around Milwaukee and Madison, Wisconsin, in the late 1970s (along with early tests of personal-sized pizza) the McRib was more widely released in 1981, but pulled from menu in 1985. Now released annually in the U.S. as a limited time promotion. Since 2005, the McRib has reappeared in late October and stays on the menu for one month. The McRib was released in Canada as a promotional sandwich from March 18 through April 8, 2008 and again in summer 2011. The McRib is presently on some European menus, e.g. Germany. The sandwich is being sold again for 3 weeks in the U.S. starting in mid-December 2012.
- McArabia - There are two versions of the McArabia: Grilled chicken, and grilled kofta (beef with spices). Both are served with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and garlic mayonnaise in addition to two small patties of grilled chicken or kofta, all wrapped in an Arabic style pita bread. McDonald's has performed a rather large advertising campaign for the McArabia since its introduction in 2003, largely focusing on the Arabic-themed nature of the sandwich, and it appears to have worked well. The McArabia has been very well received throughout the Middle East. The same product is also introduced in Malaysia with "Chicken Foldover" as an alternative name.
- Chicken McBites - Popcorn chicken breast with "home-style seasoning" offered through April 20, 2012 in 3-ounce, 5-ounce and 10-ounce versions. Dipping sauces include ranch, Sweet n' Sour, Tangy BBQ, Chipotle BBQ, and Honey Mustard.
- Fish McBites - Similar to the Chicken McBites, these are small pieces of flaky whitefish dipped in batter and fried until golden brown, and served with tartar sauce for dipping.

Famous quotes containing the words pork and/or fish:
“The pork sizzles and cries for fish. Luckily for the foolish race, and this particularly foolish generation of trout, the night shut down at last, not a little deepened by the dark side of Ktaadn, which, like a permanent shadow, reared itself from the eastern bank.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“I love meetings with suits. I live for meetings with suits. I love them because I know they had a really boring week and I walk in there with my orange velvet leggings and drop popcorn in my cleavage and then fish it out and eat it. I like that. I know Im entertaining them and I know that they know. Obviously, the best meetings are with suits that are intelligent, because then things are operating on a whole other level.”
—Madonna [Madonna Louise Ciccione] (b. 1959)
