Popeyes has found yet another way to bring me back to their drive-thru.
I am a sucker for good chicken anyway so when I heard they now offer “blackened” chicken tenders I was en route .
I had their “naked” tenders (no batter/breading) and found them to be very dried out and utterly tasteless. Seeing that these blackened tenders were also made without any breading made me thing this was gonna end up bad.
BUT NO! They coat these strips with dry rubs so it has allowed some of the moisture to stay inside the strips. They were actually pretty tasty! I was surprised and think maybe I have found something at Popeyes that will be my go-to move.
And of course now that I have said this out loud they will surely discontinue them.
