Food News: Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr. Add Buffalo Chicken Tenders
Expanding off of last year’s release of the hand-breaded chicken tender line (read my 2010 review here), Hardee’s/Carl’s Jr. are adding a new flavor to the mix: Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Sauce. Available in sandwich, wrap, and tender form, the spiked-up chicken comes paired with the familiar buttermilk ranch sauce for a cooling effect:
Freshly prepared, premium, all-white meat chicken tenders hand-dipped in buttermilk, lightly breaded and fried to a golden brown then smothered in Frank’s® Red Hot® Buffalo Wing Sauce. Served with a side of buttermilk ranch dipping sauce
The sandwich clocks in at 630 calories, 31 grams of fat (6 saturated) and 36 grams of protein, while the wrap is 270 calories, 16 grams of fat (5 saturated) and 14 grams of protein. A 3-piece order of tenders is 280 calories, 13 grams of fat (2.5 saturated) and 25 grams of protein, sans sauce.
