Fried chicken and waffles is a tried and true combo and a favorite across the United States today. Dunkin’ Donuts has taken that combo and turned it into a new portable snack, Waffle Breaded Chicken Tenders.

Fried chicken isn’t a new territory for the donut chain, as they’ve offered up a Chicken Bacon Sandwich and a Snack ‘n Go Wrap featuring it in the past. However, this is a whole new unique item not just for Dunkin’, but for big fast food as well.
The Waffle Breaded Chicken Tenders are coated in a sweet waffle batter before being deep fried, akin to what Popeyes has done with cookie dough and waffle battered tenders in the past. That combination proved to be mouthwatering, so we’re salivating just thinking about what the combination of chicken and waffle batter will be like.
Unfortunately, Dunkin’ currently doesn’t carry maple syrup as a condiment in their restaurants, so if you want to drizzle some over your tenders for an even sweeter combo, you’ll have to do that yourself.
Dunkin’ is launching the Waffle Breaded Chicken Tenders as part of a new Dunkin’ Run menu, where every single item is available all day long for $2 each. Two tenders are included per order, but you can stack on multiple orders if you’d like. The new menu, which is now available at all participating locations, also includes pretzel bites with mustard, ham and cheese roll-ups, a gluten-free fudge brownie, and Dunkin’s hype-worthy Donut Fries.
