Ya know, I'm 34 but my appetite is like a child. That's right, I'm all about chicken tenders and chocolate milk. But one of my favorite foods might have a shortage.
We've had a chicken wing shortage during the pandemic, which is why the food chain Wing Stop has also started selling chicken thighs. So it's not surprising that the next part of the bird that's in short supply is chicken tenders, according to Food & Wine.
If you don't know chicken tenders are made from the small filet of the chicken breast, they require more processing to package and sell than chicken nuggets. Because of that, it's been reflected in a rise in prices and the U.S. Department of Agriculture says a value pack of chicken tenders has gone up from $3.02 to $3.99 on average. That rise in price has caused chains like Kentucky Fried Chicken and A&W to switch up marketing plans this fall to omit tenders from promotions in order to avoid selling out of them.
I don't think you'll have to but just like toilet paper you may want to stock up on chicken tenders!
