Chance is getting his lunch back.

The famed Chicago rapper tweeted about Wendy’s Saturday, saying among his list of "positive affirmations" that the fast food chain "WILL bring back spicy nuggets at some point."

Turns out, he was right.

Wendy’s initially responded to the tweet saying "It won’t be today, but there’s always a chance."

Two hours later, the chain said "the people in charge" decided if Chance’s tweet got two million likes they would bring spicy chicken nuggets back to the menu.

By Sunday evening, it became official.

“THIS IS NOT A DRILL!” Wendy’s tweeted. “Spicy Chicken Nuggets are coming back! Y’all are crazy! That took like a day and a half! WHAT?”

Timing on when the nuggets will return to the menu wasn’t released but the tweet said it would be "soon." Wendy’s said in a statement to NBC 5 that it could not say when the item will be back on the menu but "we can promise you Wendy's Spicy Chicken Nuggets will be just as good as you remember - and worth all the hype!"
