Jul. 24, 2013, 5:13 PM
Popeye's Louisiana Kitchen is offering Chicken Waffle Tenders.
According to Advertising Age, the limited-time chicken strips with a waffle batter will be served with a maple syrup sauce and fries.
L.A. jazz musicians of the 1940s and 1950s made the chicken and waffle combo popular, and it's still beloved today.
#$%$ Lynch, chief global brand officer at Popeyes, explained that players finished so late that if they wanted a meal, restaurants and diners would still have fried chicken available while prepping waffle batter.
The Chicken Waffle Tenders are going to be the first in a series of limited-time menu items form Popeye's, pending the items success.
I tried the waffle tenders today. Was pretty good. The chicken was moist and fresh. Better than KFC. Lot of food for the price. Not spicey at all though, which is Popeyes niche. Some will love it, some won't. Place was busy and had to wait to drive out of parking lot due to string of traffic coming in and blocking the exit. On a Tuesday no less.
