Also, liuzhou, based on some of your descriptions of Chinese interpretations of Western food, I might wonder if you have ever had actual American cheese that did not have to be labeled "food product"?

 

Yes, but not in China. Wasn't impressed. Must be all that French blood!

of course I had the other Steak Biscuit this AM

 

the biscuit was quite nice.    the grilled onions added a lot of flavor.  couldn't taste the egg nor the cheese

 

45 sec out of the refrig melted the cheese.   it was hard as a rock cold

 

suggests to me ultra saturated animal fat.

 

if you never trim the peripheral fat off you steaks  you might recognize the beefy fatty flavor.

 

real staying power in this FoodBombe.

 

BTW  the meat might not have been ground beet but beef very very heavily passed through the " Cube-ing Machine ' 

 

several times.

 

Id say , if piping hot , this item has the most flavor of anything at McD's

 

just make sure its hot and this is the flavor your looking for.

 

a P.S.:  say what you like about what's ' cheese ' and what's ' not cheese '

 

back in the day Velveta had nothing imitation in it.  melted nicely  and made a might fine macaroni cheese.

 

nowday  don't bother to look at the label.

It's a limited edition McD's sandwich available in Australia and New Zealand:

"McDonalds' New Chicken Big Mac Might Actually Be Better Than The Original"

Quote

The Chicken Big Mac - the poultry version of the beefy original - has become an official menu item at McDonald's locations in Australia and New Zealand, AU.com reports.

The sandwich is exactly the same as the original - America, cheese, pickles, and special sauce included - just with crispy chicken patties swapped in for the burger patties.

Oddly, I wonder how it is to eat. I can see a double burger's success since the patties aren't that  substantive. But two chicken patties? Might be more "there" there, to mis-use the old cliché, and maybe that's why it's getting such good reviews down under.

I see one if not more issues :L

 

the chicken at McD's is glued together.   Meat glue , just a guess.

 

that isn't such a big deal as such 
 

but it makes for an odd chew.

 

shy not ground chicken ?

 

a la ground beef ?

They probably use smaller chicken patties, like the ones on the McChicken sandwich. There's 15 g protein in that sandwich, while the Buttermilk Crispy Chicken sandwich has 28 g protein, so nearly twice as much chicken in that one. One thing McD's is really good at is making things smaller. They used to have total weight in grams for each item. When they first came out with the McDouble, which is a smaller version of the Double Cheeseburger with one less slice of cheese, they still had the weights on the nutrition site, so you could compare items. It's easier to downsize, I guess, without attracting attention to it with the weights removed from the site.

 

I found the nutrition for the actual Chicken Big Mac on the McDonald's Australia site, and it has 722 calories and 36 g protein, so it is a huge sandwich, bigger than the regular Big Mac which has 520 calories and 26.9g protein. So yeah, apparently there is more "there" there. :)
