Carl's Jr. And Hardee's Are Testing Out A New Kind Of Chicken Tender

What could be better than chowing down on a flavorful fried chicken tender? Perhaps nothing, unless that tasty piece of meat also happens to come in a fun, bite-sized format. And now, fans of the popular Hand-Breaded Chicken available at Carl's Jr. and Hardee's can now do just that with the debut of their newest bite-sized options. Carl's Jr. and Hardee's have just announced they will be adding new Hand-Breaded Chicken Tender Bites to their menu at select locations. (via Chew Boom). 

This new offering will feature the same fan-favorite premium, all-white meat chicken and buttermilk batter dip, deep-fried in the brand's signature crispy breading, only now in a tender, bite-sized package. They can be purchased in a 6-piece order for a recommended price of $2.99, a 12-piece order for $4.99, or 24 pieces for just $8.99, and each order comes with the customer's choice of their favorite dipping sauce, according to Brand Eating.

These new Hand-Breaded Chicken Tender Bites will only be available at select locations

This new release comes right on the heels of the launch of the brand's newest dipping sauce, the sweet and tangy Star Sauce, which was recently spotted at select Carl's Jr. and Hardee's locations in Sacramento, California, according to Chew Boom. But if that isn't quite your thing, fans can also choose from any number of the brand's other dipping sauces, including Honey Mustard, Ranch, or Sweet N Sour, to pair with their savory new Hand-Breaded Chicken Tender Bites (via Asking Lot). 

However, these tasty new bites will be available only at select locations for a limited time. You can find then at Carl's Jr. and Hardee's locations in Paducah, Kentucky; Knoxville, Tennessee; Sacramento, California; Tucson, Arizona; and Palm Springs, California, from now through December 2021 (via Chew Boom). So if you live in any of these areas, you better act quick.
