FACT CHECKED BY Faye Brennan

Fans of Chick-fil-A's spicy chicken sandwiches are going to rejoice at the latest news from the beloved chain. According to reports, the company is going to start testing new Spicy Chick-n-Strips—their version of chicken tenders—in select locations this spring.

Chew Boom reports that select Chick-fil-A locations in Tampa, Chicago, and central Texas will have the new spicy tenders available starting April 26. The Spicy Chick-n-Strips will feature chicken seasoned with a spicy blend of peppers, which is then hand-breaded and fried up in 100% refined peanut oil.

The new item will be available on its own and as part of a new Spicy Chick-n-Strips Biscuit on the breakfast menu, which will include two Spicy Chick-n-Strips served on a fresh-baked buttermilk biscuit.

While these spicy strips are a novelty for most, some fans of the fast-food chain have already had the opportunity to try them during a 2017 test in Philadelphia, central Texas, and south Texas locations.

This isn't the only menu change Chick-fil-A is currently making. The company has also announced it would be doing away with some breakfast options and consolidating the sizes of kid's meals, coffee drinks, and desserts in order to pare down their menu for efficiency.
