Everyone has a different strategy to survive the dreaded Mondays — some of us rely on endless amounts of coffee as a vice, while others resort to sweets. For me, though, it's definitely something greasy off the McDonald's menu, and that's why I'm dying to try the chain's new chicken sandwiches, which just came out earlier this month.

Those who appreciate fast-food are mind-blown that McDonald's has officially joined the legendary battle of the chicken sandwich — Mickey D's could ultimately take the lead in the legendary chicken sandwich battle with two new varieties. Both were tested earlier in select markets in 2019, and are now officially available nationwide as of January 2020. So if you're dying for a taste, stay tuned for more on the McChicken Biscuit and the Chicken McGriddle sandwiches.

First, we have McDonald's McChicken Biscuit Sandwich. 

The McChicken Biscuit Sandwich appears to be exactly what it sounds like — based on the photo from the McDonald's menu, it seems to feature a juicy, crispy chicken filet, which is sandwiched between two flaky buttermilk biscuits. Hot sauce lovers can add their own to the original version, or they can simply order the spicy variety, according to Refinery29. The choice is entirely yours.

The McChicken Biscuit is part of the chain's breakfast menu, which is why we're eternally #grateful the chain offers breakfast all day, every day. Not only will this soften the blow of every hard-knock Monday, but it's also bound to mitigate even the worst of hangovers. These may ultimately take over my Saturday and Sunday mornings, too.

Next, there's the Chicken McGriddle.

The Chicken McGriddle appears to be quite similar to a regular McGriddle, sans the egg and Canadian bacon — according to the photo on the McDonald's website, it seems to feature a filet of crispy chicken, which is sandwiched between two maple-flavored pancakes. That hint of maple most likely emulates a steaming hot plate of chicken and waffles, giving you a sweet taste of the American south.

Whether you want to add hot sauce or maple syrup to the second new breakfast menu staple — or if you'd rather just order the spicy version — is totally up to you. I, personally, recommend doing all of the above. In the words of Food Network overlord, Guy Fieri, it sounds like a one-way trip to flavor town.

Once you've had your chicken sandwich fill, McDonald's is giving out free nuggs.

The holidays may be over, but McDonald's is still celebrating. Just in time for award show season, the chain is offering a 10-piece Chicken McNuggets exclusively through UberEats, according to the brand. A $15 minimum purchase is required, and they're only running the deal on Sunday, Jan. 26 and Sunday, Feb. 9.

So if you love free food and want to prepare for Monday in the tastiest way possible, you won't want to miss out on this delicious deal.

Between two new chicken sandwiches and free nuggs, McDonald's is really changing the game for every case of Sunday Scaries and — of course — the dreaded Mondays. Praise McDonald's for bringing us the joy of chicken... they're seriously winning 2020 so far.
