I don't care how old you are. Chicken tenders will forever be a top-five food on any menu.

While on my way to check out the new Yas Chicken on Thayer Street in Providence, I was unprepared for what the restaurant had to offer. The mighty mom-and-pop hot spot for chicken lovers takes poultry to a completely different level, adding Asian flair and flavor.

In all fairness, if you like chicken in general, you'll have no problem finding something.

I sampled a variety of appetizers, sides and sandwiches until the big guns emerged from the kitchen: the chicken tenders. The basket was filled to the brim with piping-hot, larger-than-life chicken tendies that were big enough to curb any hunger pang.

Each tender had to be about 8 to 9 inches long and extremely girthy.

Yes, I'm still talking about chicken.

My jaw dropped, my mouth began to salivate and my eyes rolled to the back of my head as I took the first bite into the juiciest piece of chicken I'd had in quite some time. The honey mustard was sweet and savory, but the Yas sauce was divine. I would put that on everything.

These chicken baskets come in six pieces for $10.99, 12 pieces for $20.99, and 18 pieces for $29.99. You can choose from buffalo, BBQ, spicy BBQ, sweet & sour, honey mustard and the signature Yas sauce. Before you complain that $11 for a six-piece is too pricey, just know I was full after only two tenders.

Trust me when I say that this chicken will make you say "Yassss" with each bite that you take.

Best of all, right now you can get it for half-price by visiting SeizeTheDeal.com and get $50 to Yas Chicken for just $25.

If you're in the mood for chicken but don't want to head to Providence, here are some other spots around the SouthCoast to enjoy some delicious wings.

The SouthCoast Hot Wing Project

WBSM's Tim Weisberg and his son Adam spent six months touring the SouthCoast area from New Bedford to Fall River to Dartmouth to Norton and beyond, trying some of the supposed hottest wings around – and also gave some other unique wing flavors a shot, too.
