Provided by CNBC

McDonald’s (MCD) is reportedly testing the Chicken McGriddle, a chicken-and-pancake breakfast sandwich, in Ohio.

While the Chicken McGriddle has been offered as part of McDonald’s unofficial secret menu, Columbus Business First reported that the fast food giant is testing the item in 11 restaurants in central Ohio.

The sandwich is essentially a McChicken with maple-flavored pancakes in place of the normal buns, the publication said. The item requires testing locations to add chicken to its breakfast hours, according to Columbus Business First.

The report said the Chicken McGriddle will be available until March 27. The testing locations will experiment with two price points: $1.49 and $2, according to Columbus Business First.

The publication also reported the Chicken McGriddle test will not be supported with advertising.

McDonald’s did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CNBC.
