McDonald’s Chicken Legend will be gone from the fast-food chain’s menu starting next week.

Fans, however, shouldn’t panic, as the Chicken Legend’s “removal” from the menu is just temporary. All Chicken Legend variants ― Cool Mayo, BBQ Sauce, and Hot & Spicy Mayo ― are going into a hiatus to give way to McDonald’s Christmas menu, which will launch on November 18th. The Chicken Legend will be back on the menu right after the Christmas menu completes its run at the end of December.
