With the inaugural National Chicken Finger Day this Friday, we decided to rank our Five Favorite chicken fingers/tenders.
Buffalo Brothers (Raleigh) - These breaded tenders are served after being soaked in your choice of Buffalo Bros. sauce. You can even get them tossed in the Ludicrous sauce, which we can tell you is extremely HOT!
Hibernian (Raleigh, Cary) - Their chicken tenders are known as Foghorn Fingers. These breaded delights are served with honey mustard or pineapple barbecue sauce. We prefer the honey mustard. So good and always enough to bring home for lunch the next day.
Beasley's Chicken and Honey (Raleigh) - You might argue that they don't serve tenders specifically, but we couldn't resist putting them on the list. Whether served on a biscuit or inside a pot pie, their chicken is amazing!
Blinco's Sports Restaurant and Bar (Raleigh) - One of our Facebook fans suggested this pick specifically for its chipotle barbecue tossed fingers. "You will thank me (maybe not your hips, but your lips!)," they wrote. Yummy!
Bojangle's - Yes, we know it is a chain and we try to avoid chains on these lists, but we just couldn't stay away. It is located near the WRAL studios after all. This chain's chicken tenders are known as supremes, which is a great name since they are pretty supreme. It also doesn't hurt that they have a little kick to them.
