Crispy Tenders (formerly called Chicken Selects and Buttermilk Crispy Tenders) were chicken strips sold by the international fast food restaurant chain McDonald's in the United States and Canada. They were introduced in early 1998 for a limited time and offered again in early 2002 and late 2003 and then permanently starting in 2004. In the UK, they were launched on the "Pound Saver Menu", which offers various menu items for £0.99.

In mid-2006, McDonald's introduced the Snack Wrap, which contains a Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strip, or as of January 2007, a Grilled Chicken Breast Strip, cheddar/jack cheese, lettuce, and either ranch, honey mustard, or chipotle barbecue sauce, all wrapped inside a white flour tortilla, priced at 99¢-$1.39 depending on the market.

Chicken Selects were terminated in 2013. The product briefly returned in 2015, but was again dropped. In August 2017, Chicken Selects returned to the menu under the name "Buttermilk Crispy Tenders", But were terminated once again in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


Ingredients for the Chicken Selects Premium Breast Strip are listed as "Chicken breast strips, water, seasoning [salt, monosodium glutamate, carrageenan gum, chicken broth, natural flavor (plant and animal source), maltodextrin, spice, autolyzed yeast extract, chicken fat, polysorbate 80], modified potato starch, and sodium phosphates.
