After making their first appearance in 2005, Chicken Fries at Burger King have been highly discussed. They were introduced first in the US as a part of a menu expansion for a limited time. Following popular demand, they became a permanent menu addition only to be discontinued in 2012.
However, fans across the country demanded a comeback, and so, Chicken Fries became a part of Burger King’s official menu in 2015. Now, Burger King has reiterated their commitment to the product with a spin-off from them: Cheeto Chicken Fries.
What’s All The Fuss About?
Let’s take a moment to appreciate why Chicken Fries are such a big deal.
They’re made by breading and frying chicken strips which are coated with a combination of spices and herbs. Since they’re shaped like fries, they’re easy to dip into Burger King’s BBQ, Honey Mustard, Ranch and Sweet and Sour sauces.
The chicken fries are available only in 30 countries across the world; if you don’t live in one of them, you can taste what all the fuss was about with this recipe. Have these as a indulgent snack or as an appetizer.
