NEWS: Burger King Replaces Their Chicken Tenders with Chicken Nuggets and Offers New Limited-Time-Only Menu


Last year, Burger King introduced their chicken nuggets-looking Chicken Tenders, which replaced their crown-shaped chicken nuggets. To start the new year, Burger King has replaced their Chicken Tenders with their new Chicken Nuggets, which look similar to their Chicken Tenders.

I’m so confused.

BK’s new Chicken Nuggets have white meat chicken on the inside and a crispy tempura-style batter on the outside. It’s available in four-, six-, 10-, or 20-pieces, and comes with your choice of six sauces — Honey Mustard, Ranch, Sweet and Sour, Buffalo, Barbecue or Zesty.

Along with new chicken nuggets, Burger King is also offering four new limited-time-only menu items, one limited-time-only product back by popular demand, and one limited-time-only sandwich that sounds like something Burger King has introduced before.

Avocado Swiss Whopper – A fire-grilled beef, topped with naturally smoked thick-cut bacon, Swiss cheese, a creamy avocado spread, freshly cut lettuce, ripe tomatoes and a zesty avocado aioli, all on a toasted sesame seed bun.

Philly Original Chicken Sandwich – A BK classic Original Chicken Sandwich topped with red and green bell peppers, seasoned grilled onions and two types of melted cheese, all served on a toasted sesame bun.


Molten Fudge Bites – Features a fudge-brownie outside and molten chocolate filling on the inside. Served hot and dusted with powdered sugar.

Molten Fudge Sundae – Vanilla Soft Serve combined with Molten Fudge Bites. Topped with chocolate fudge and a buttery caramel swirl.

Cheesy Tots – Back by popular demand. Tots with a crispy outside, and potatoes and American cheese on the inside. Available in eight-piece, 10-piece or 12-piece servings.

Italian Original Chicken Sandwich – A lightly breaded chicken fillet topped with mozzarella cheese, and sweet and tangy marinara sauce, all served on a toasted sesame seed bun. Yes, it does sound similar to this sandwich that was offered by a little company called Burger King.

All items are available now at participating Burger King restaurants. If you’ve tried any of them, let us know what you think of them in the comments below.

  1. The new nuggets or tenders or whatever they are calling them look and taste pretty much EXACTLY like McDonalds nuggets do. I don’t understand why Burgerking tries to hard to be more like McDonalds. I used to like BK more because it was different. Now that they are indistinguishable I don’t like either.

  2. As a vegetarian, I have fond memories of the Burger King chicken tenders of my youth. I was raised on them. Also, they’ve had some sort of formulation of the Italian chicken sandwich off and on for the past 15 years or so.

  3. basically, the new nuggets are actually nuggets, meaning they’re made of formed meat and a binder. The redesigned tenders that looked like nuggets were still technically tenders, as they still contained actual breast meat, and as such, were still healthier than actual nuggets.
