KFC is testing new Original Recipe chicken tenders in Cincinnati and surrounding areas starting Oct. 23. The tenders are available for $5 and paired with a dipping sauce and biscuit.
They’re also available as part of KFC’s $20 Fill Up Box, which comes with four Original Recipe tenders, four pieces of fried chicken, a side of Secret Recipe fries, four biscuits and four dipping sauces.
According to Claire Brandenburg, KFC’s product innovation manager, the Original Recipe tenders are different than the chain’s current tenders because of the breading process. Both are hand-breaded and double-breaded, but the current tenders go through the Extra Crispy breading system, while the tenders in test are put through the Original Recipe breading system. Before the company’s new nuggets were launched in April, only the company’s chicken on-the-bone products were breaded through the Original Recipe system.NRN
