The new item? Crispy Tortilla Chicken Strips, which features all-white chicken meat soaked in s jalapeno buttermilk marinade that is then rolled in a crunchy tortilla chip coated seasoned with a blend of spices, The Daily Meal reports. The Crispy Tortilla Chicken Strips will come served with a brand-new “signature dipping sauce.”
According to The Daily Meal, the strips come on their own in orders of two, or three, or served as part of a taco with lettuce, tomato, shredded cheese, and sour cream.
