Chicken Tenders, A Love Affair

Posted on Posted in Stuff and Things

I remember when you were looked at with a sour face if you ordered Chicken Tenders or Chicken Strips at a restaurant. Mostly I would get the “that’s for kids” isn’t it? It’s not like it stopped me but luckily, we now happen to be in a Chicken Tender period of renaissance.

Chicken Tenders aren’t a new thing but it’s popularity is a natural evolution linked to the rise of Chicken Nuggets in the 1980s. Things are going so great in the world of Chicken Tenders that standalone restaurants that revolve around them now exist like PDQ and Raising Cane’s.

    I LOVE the honey mustard at Flanigan’s so much, I sometimes buy it to use on my own chicken tenders for parties. Their chicken tenders were so popular they moved from the appetizer menu to be a main course. Gotta love ’em with the curly fries!
