Taco Bell announced that they are going to launch a new chicken tender item next year that will be an exciting addition to their menu.

The Taco Bell Crispy Tortilla Chicken Tenders will be coated in tortilla chip crumbs and will have a signature dipping sauce to compliment the tenders.

Taco Bell will be testing the new item in a few markets and apparently tried over 100 different varieties of recipes for the chicken tenders before settling on this one.

According to Business Insider, they decided to get in the chicken game to compete with Chick-Fil-A and Popeye's and their immense growth with their businesses and products.

Even though we don't have either of those restaurants here in Bozeman but we get to reap the benefits.
