McDonald’s on Thursday outlined what its upcoming $5 meal deal will contain.

Under the meal deal, customers will get their pick of one of two sandwich options — a McDouble or a McChicken — plus small fries, four-piece McNuggets, and a small soda as accompaniments.

It will debut on participating restaurants’ menus in the U.S. on Tuesday and be available for a "limited time" only, according to McDonald’s.

The company has also been running a "Free Fries Friday" deal nationwide. It started that promotion, which gives customers who buy a menu item that costs at least $1 through the chain’s app a complimentary medium package of fries, last fall.

"We’re focused on living up to that legacy and offering delicious, affordable options customers can enjoy any time they walk through our doors, go through our Drive Thru, or place an order through our app," McDonald’s USA President Joe Erlinger said.

In late April, McDonald's CEO Chris Kempczinski noted that quick-service restaurant consumers continued to feel pressure.

"It is clear that broad-based consumer pressures persist around the world," he said at the time. "Consumers continue to be even more discriminating with every dollar that they spend as they face elevated prices in their day-to-day spending, which is putting pressure on the QSR industry." 

He also said McDonald’s "must be laser-focused on affordability" for customers.
