Burger King's new Buffalo Chicken Strips are available through October and feature their standard battered and deep-fried Chicken Strips tossed in a hot and spicy Buffalo sauce.
An order of three strips was $3.29.
Burger King describes their chicken strips as "generously battered" and, to be sure, there is a fairly thick and somewhat chewy shell surrounding them. While I found the batter to be crunchy when I tried the regular version, the Buffalo Chicken Strips were, unsurprisingly, soft and moist from the Buffalo sauce, but still a little chewy. I think I would have preferred a grilled chicken strip tossed in buffalo sauce over this.
The sauce coverage was a little spotty as well and looks less like they were tossed so much as they were rolled. The sauce itself was tasty enough with that signature sour vinegary bite and just a touch of heat. It went well with the provided ranch sauce.
Overall, Burger King's Buffalo Chicken Strips might work if they were fresh out of the fryer and you ate them straight away, but chances are you're getting them out from under a heat lamp and to-go. The end result being a sad, soggy, and decidedly un-crispy fried chicken strip. I'd recommend just getting the regular strips and just asking for a cup each of buffalo and ranch sauce for a better experience at the same price.
