"Tendies"

Chef Bailey's version of chicken tenders that are done Jamaican jerk-style. Fried until crisp all around and imparting a subtle but lingering heat, the "tendies" are particularly addictive. There are also 12 dipping sauces available to choose from, including the spicy Asian-style "General Satan's Sauce" and the DC favorite "Mumbo Sauce."
