McDonald’s McRib may have some new competition coming up as the oddest menu item at the fast food chain.

This week, chicken wings will be tested at Chicago Mickey D’s locations. The restaurant says their wings had a successful run in Atlanta last year, and is looking to expand its new menu item.

How do you think the “Mighty Wings” will be received in the Windy City?

The AP Reports:
The world’s biggest hamburger chain is set to expand its test of chicken wings to Chicago this week, after a successful run in Atlanta last year. The wings are expected to be sold in three, five or 10 pieces with prices likely starting at $3, according to Lynne Collier, an analyst with Sterne Agee.

A spokeswoman for McDonald’s confirmed the test in Chicago would start this week but said there weren’t any plans yet to bring the wings to other cities. Fast-food chains typically test items in select markets before taking them national. But for McDonald’s, which has 14,000 U.S. locations, adding chicken wings to the permanent lineup could be tricky.
