When it comes time for a meal around here, I seem to find myself staring aimlessly into the cupboard or refrigerator far too often. What is there to make that we haven't eaten the day before?
Combine those thoughts with the ones that go through my head when my family is out running errands and crabbiness from hunger starts to set in... and that leads to the occasional trip to a drive-through or stop in to a fast food restaurant for a quick and easy break.
It doesn't happen too often, but the times that it does I want to be sure that there is something for everyone to munch on and that we're all going to leave full and happy. And that's what we know we can find at Burger King, particularly with the introduction of their new Chicken Tenders.
Founded in 1954, Burger King is a global, quick-service restaurant chain with over 12,100 locations in 76 countries that serves more than 11.4 million people daily. That's a lot of burgers! And now, also a lot of Chicken Tenders.
Waiting for a day that fit in our schedule, when we finally pulled into BK, our stomachs were growling and we were ready to see the infamous Chicken Tenders in person. We couldn't pass up a time to come visit the King, right?
Taking a look at the menu, we found the new Chicken Tenders in a 4-piece meal on the BK Value Menu for just $1, an 8-piece pack for $1.99 and a 20-pack for $4.99.
As Burger King is known for allowing customers to "Have it your way," we also found that they came with a choice of six different dipping sauces - buffalo, barbecue, zesty, sweet and sour, honey mustard or ranch.
Having selected the 8-piece Chicken Tenders, we sat down at the table a few minutes later and both kids were eagerly grabbing at the crispy meal. Considering that Big Sister E typically won't even touch meat of any kind, these Chicken Tenders must really have looked appealing for her to want to give them a try!
The consensus was good! The new Chicken Tenders proved to be seasoned and crispy on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. A great meal option for adults and kids alike, these are quick, affordable, and portable, making them great for a sit-down or fast meal on the go.
Leaving Burger King with full bellies and crowns on our heads, we found that we had been able to easily feed the entire family extremely inexpensively and be happily on our way. It was definitely a successful trip!
