Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen has debuted a new product called “Rip’n Chick’n.” It seems to be something akin to a Bloomin’ Onion, but made with meat.
Here’s the official word:
“Popeyes Rip’n Chick’n is a whole chicken breast cut into tenders only partially, and left intact at the base for rip-able strips. It’s marinated with a blend of cayenne, habañero, white and black peppers, and then is hand battered, breaded, and cooked up in Popeyes signature crispy batter. To cool it off, Rip’n Chick’n is served with a side of buttermilk Ranch Sauce for dip’n.”
So, first you do your rip’n, then you do your dip’n.
I tried to find out the calorie count for this $3.99 product on the Popeyes website, but it’s not there yet.
Has anyone gone rip’n and dip’n over the Memorial Day weekend and care to share?
