Fast Food Review: Burger King Chicken Tenders
Interestingly, the new product is still called "tenders," even though they look just like nuggets. But Burger King is advertising them as having a new seasoning, along with the slogan "Crispy. Tender. New." So I figured I would give them a try. I ordered eight pieces for $1.99.
Unfortunately, they taste just like rounder versions of the chicken fries. They were not hot, they were not crispy, and they were not tender. The breading was bland and room temperature and the chicken was only slightly juicier than beef jerky. The word that kept coming to mind as I ate them was "pathetic." They are pathetic, shriveled little versions of the chicken nuggets that you find at many fast food joints.
The "zesty" sauce that accompanied the chicken was very tasty, similar to the Popeyes Deltas Sauce I love. But it still wasn't enough to make the chicken edible.
The Carl's Jr. turkey burger I had the other day was the worst thing I have eaten so far in 2011. These new Burger King chicken tenders are the second-worst.
