Blackened TendersPopeyes 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.

    I just had to say I found your comment about liking something so you’re sure they will discontinue it totally relatable! I feel this way all of the time, it’s either that or other people find out about whatever item I’m loving and then it’s sold out everywhere! Thank goodness my Popeyes still offers the blackened tenders, although they are not advertised on menu which is fine by me! They are by far my favorite fast food item.
