FAST FOOD NEWS: Popeyes Tear’n Tenderloin Chicken

Popeyes Tear n Tenderloin Chicken

Popeyes is at it again. And when I say, “at it again”, I mean they’re apostrophe N’n names again. First, it was Rip’n. Next came Dip’n. And now there’s Popeyes Tear’n Tenderloin Chicken. The new dish is made up of white meat chicken tenderloins that are split, marinated in Louisiana spices, hand-battered, and deep fried. The chicken comes with Popeyes’ new Cajun Creamy Garlic Dipping Sauce. Two Tear’n Tenderloin pieces, fries, and a biscuit are available for $3.99.

I look forward to future Popeyes apostrophe N products, like Pluck’n Cluck’n Chicken, Yank’n Yum Chicken, Wrench’n Wing Chicken, and Pry’n Thigh’n Chicken.
