Hands Down, the BEST TASTING Chicken Tenders

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:really fresh, tastes great, no gristle, no trans fat

Cons:can be pricey unless gotten at Wal-Mart, high sodium

The Bottom Line: Honestly, we have tried many different brands of chicken tenders - these are BY FAR the best. 4 stars because of high sodium.


Please Note:  The bag is slightly different than the posted picture for this review.  It includes the words, "100% All Natural Ingredients" on the left side of the bag.


My family loves chicken tenders and we have eaten different brands - pretty much whatever is on sale that week.  That all came to an end when we tried these Tyson Southern Style Breast Tenderloins made with white meat.  Since then we have consumed about ten bags of this Tyson chicken and we love them more than any other tenders on the market.

The Tyson tenderloins are really fresh and seem to fall apart in our hands because they are that high in quality.  Seriously, never once has anyone in my family had a complaint about these tenders.  We have never encountered small bone fragments, fat pockets or gristle at all.  One demerit is that they are packed with high levels of sodium.  That really is the one unhealthy element, otherwise they're golden.

The other downside is that they tend to be more expensive than other brands unless you buy them at Wal-Mart.  Supermarkets tend to price these tenderloins at around $8.99 per 1.56 bag which is ten pieces.  Wal-Mart prices them at around $6.99 or less.  On occasion, we've seen them priced at $5.99 at Wal-Mart on special.


INGREDIENTS:

boneless chicken breast tenderloins, water, salt, seasoning (salt, natural flavoring).

Breaded with: wheat flour, water, salt, spice, dextrose, yellow corn flour, buttermilk powder, extractives from paprika.

Breading set in vegetable oil.


NUTRITIONAL FACTS:

based on a ONE piece serving size

calories - 150
calories from fat - 70
total fat - 7g
saturated fat - 1.5g
trans fat - 0g
polyunsaturated fat - 2.5g
monounsaturated fat - 3.5g
cholesterol - 20mg
sodium - 360mg
total carbs - 9g
dietary fiber - 1g
sugars - 1g
protein - 10g


Since I usually eat three tenders at a time, that translates to 1,080mg of salt - YIKES!


FINAL WORDS:

I have eaten many different chicken tenders from many different brands, but I really love these Tyson tenders because they are so delicious and free of trans fat or preservatives.  They really are the best I've ever eaten and that includes tenders cooked fresh at markets or restaurants.  I can't believe I'm saying that about frozen pre-cooked chicken tenders, but it's true.

I use ranch dressing for dipping on occasion, but I really love sweet n' sour sauce mixed with a little bit of barbecue sauce and it makes for some heavenly dippin' sessions.  Keep in mind that the dip raises the nutritional numbers too.  So sodium can jump really high and become really bad for folks with high blood pressure.

These are 5 star tenders, but because of the high sodium content, I rate them 4 stars.  I recommend them for anyone - except for those with high blood pressure.

For comparison, please read my Banquet Chicken Patties review.

Happy snackin' n' dippin'.
