The brand’s new plant-based meat alternative is now available at select restaurants across the country.

Here’s some dip-worthy news—Beyond Meat just launched vegan chicken tenders! The plant-based meat brand kicked off the release of their Beyond Chicken Tenders by teaming up with select restaurants across the country to add the new protein-packed strips to their menus.

What Do Beyond Chicken Tenders Taste Like?

If there’s one thing Beyond Meat knows how to do, it’s how to master the textures and flavors of animal-based meats using ingredients that are 100% vegan. So if you find yourself asking, “What do Beyond Chicken Tenders taste like?” The answer is simple—they taste just like their non-vegan counterparts (but better).

Beyond Chicken Tenders are juicy on the inside, and crispy on the outside, with a golden-brown coating that will fool any omnivore who takes a bite. The reason these plant-based strips are so mind-blowingly realistic is that nearly 200 research, innovation, and culinary team members have spent almost a decade perfecting Beyond Chicken Tenders.

“We’re innovating the poultry market with the new Beyond Chicken Tenders—the result of our tireless pursuit for excellence and growth at Beyond Meat,” said Dariush Ajami, Chief Innovation Officer at Beyond Meat. “As with all our products, Beyond Chicken Tenders offer delicious taste and an exceptional culinary experience, along with strong nutritional benefits. Innovation is at the heart of Beyond Meat, and Beyond Chicken Tenders are the latest example of our mission to create groundbreaking, tasty options that are better for people and for our planet.”

The Ingredients in Beyond Meat’s New Chicken Tenders

Even though most fried chicken strips are seen as a splurge meal, the ingredients in Beyond Meat’s new tenders are simple, nutritious, and feature 40% less saturated fat than the leading foodservice chicken tender! They’re made from fiber-packed non-GMO ingredients like fava beans and peas and come in at 14g of protein per serving—without the presence of any antibiotics, hormones, or cholesterol.

Where to Find Beyond Chicken Tenders

In the official announcement from Beyond Meat this morning, the brand shared that their tenders are set to be served at around 400 restaurants nationwide starting today. For more information on where to find Beyond Chicken Tenders, visit their store locator.
