recent menu expansion and feature breaded and battered pieces of marinated chicken tenderloin strips. They resemble McDonald's Chicken Selects more than a little.
I bought 3 pieces for $3.29 and picked up the two new Kung Pao and Jalapeno BBQ dipping sauces while I was at it.
The pictures of the Chicken Strips on the BK website look a little dry so it's no surprise that they're rather dry in person as well.
The breading in particular while exhibiting a decent amount of crust and crunch was also really thick, dry, and a bit chewy. It was pretty salty but lightly seasoned otherwise. The saltiness made dipping a bit of overkill on the salt-o-meter (metaphorically speaking because I don't have a salt-o-meter).
The sauces were a little more interesting; not for dipping though--the strips were too salty and the sauces were pretty salty as well, especially the Kung Pao. But they brought different and non-traditional flavors than the typical dipping choices.
The Kung Pao sauce tasted like a very garlicky blend of soy sauce and vinegar plus the slight kick of some peppers. It's more what I'd think of for stir-frying some noodles or marinating some chicken rather than something for dipping though. The flavor was fairly strong and, like soy sauce, pretty salty.
Rodeo Burger or something.
Overall, I didn't really care for the new Chicken Strips; too dry, too salty, too much breading. If Burger King wanted to imitate some chicken strips, I don't think McDonald's was the way to go. I'd point to Chick-fil-A and Carl's Jr. for some very nice ones.
