To diversify its chicken offerings, McDonald's recently began testing Buttermilk Crispy Tenders in a number of restaurants in the Charlotte, North Carolina, area. Made with "authentic seasonings" and served with a mysterious "signature sauce," the new chicken strips are a welcome alternative for those who are looking for something a little different than the brand's ever-popular Chicken McNuggets.
The new new Buttermilk Crispy Tenders are all white-meat chicken strips hat have been dipped in buttermilk and battered with seasoning before being deep-fried. Like the brand's Chicken McNuggets, the tenders are completely free from artificial colors, flavors, preservatives and MSG.
Described by the chain as "slightly tangy and sweet" the Buttermilk Crispy Tenders are perfect for chicken-lovers looking for something a little different.
