Last summer, Popeye’s Chicken stumbled on a minor bit of genius when it decided to fry its chicken tenders in waffle batter and serve them with maple syrup. Now Popeye’s is bringing back its hybrid spawn.
Just like before, the waffle tenders will be available with a biscuit and Popeye’s Sweet Honey Maple dipping sauce for $4.99. I was supposed to pick some up for lunch today, but chickened out and decided to go with quinoa instead. Don’t make the same mistake as me, especially since this limited time offering is only available until June 29.
So, what happens when plain ol’ chicken and waffles just aren’t cutting it anymore? You go all cronut on ’em and smash the two together for the ultimate hybrid meal. Well, kinda.
Popeyes is rolling out a “new twist on a southern favorite” and bringing the masses limited-time Chicken Waffle Tenders. The new item features deep-fried, waffle-battered boneless chicken strips served with Cajun fries, a biscuit and honey maple dipping sauce. The whole lot rings in at $4.99.
