Taco Bell Chicken Tenders Are Coming! Here’s What You Need to Know!
Apparently Taco Bell wants in on some of this chicken mania sweeping the fast food world. Popeyes more recently set social media ablaze with their new spicy chicken sandwich. Taco Bell now wants a piece of the pie. The taco chain announced they will begin testing new crispy tortilla chicken tenders at select cities and will eventually launch the new menu item nationally next year.
For now Dayton, Ohio and Houston, Texas will serve as the testing grounds for the new tenders. Taco Bell will begin to roll out the tortilla chicken tenders at these two spots this week. Customers will be able to try 1 tender for $2, two for $3 or three for $4. The new chicken tortilla tenders will also be available int the $5 and $7 boxes.
To create the perfect tender, Taco Bell has stated that they have tested over 1oo variations of the recipe before landing on what they feel is the perfect one which includes marinated in a jalapeño buttermilk mixture, giving them a slightly spicy kick. The tenders will be coated in tortilla chip crumbs as well.
It will be interesting to see if these tenders will get anywhere near the buzz that Popeyes received. Only time will tell.
