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 has remained through today.
Dick 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.
