With summer just around the corner, Popeyes unveiled its new Southern Fair Tenders. Across the US, summer usually means visits to state fairs to sample delicious, one-of-a-kind dishes. This new dish infuses the familiar favors and aromas of the state fair into a one tasty entree.

According to Popeyes, the new Southern Fair Tenders capture the "very essence of the aromas and flavors you can only find at the state fair." The dish itself consists of three chicken tenders that have been marinated in Louisiana seasonings and then dipped in a sweet cornmeal breading that is traditionally found in the south. To give the dish a crunchy texture, the chicken is then deep-fried until crispy. For a complete meal, the Southern Fried Tenders can be paired with Cajun Fries , a buttermilk biscuit and the chain's Wild Honey Mustard sauce.
