Wendy's just announced they will be adding an American favorite to their menu

Last month, McDonald’s announced their new buttermilk chicken tenders, their first foray into chicken tenders since the chicken selects of a decade ago.

Well, someone has taken notice: Wendy’s now has chicken tenders and their new S’Awesome sauce available nationwide. These tenders are made from 100 percent all-white meat chicken breasts and are lightly breaded and seasoned with "simple ingredients," keeping the chicken light and flavorful. It comes with a side of signature S’Awesome sauce, which is said to combine a tangy, sweet and smoky flavor into a one savory sauce.

And the best part of all? Right now, a combo meal including three chicken tenders, fries and a small drink will only set you back $5.

“We decided to raise the bar because customers deserve better-tasting and quality chicken,” Wendy’s chief concept and marketing officer, Kurt Kane, said in a press release. “After two years of perfecting our new Chicken Tenders and Side of S’Awesome sauce, we knew we had a winner. The only thing left to do was provide these tenders at a price point customers would love.”

The new menu item is now available at locations nationwide.
