In the left corner we have . . . Perdue Simply Smart Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders, and . . .
In the right corner we have . . . Tyson Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Strips!
Disappointing. We paid around $6 for the bag, and we received six chicken strips, and a chicken "nubbin", because there is no way this thing could be dubbed a "strip". Only two of the strips were average sized; the rest were itty bitty midget strips. Out of 5 points, these receive a 2 for portion, because the bag COULD have been empty, and that would've been the worst. Right?
Not bad. They were kind of peppery, which was tasty. Other than that, there wasn't much flavor. I kind of wish they'd been a bit spicier. 3/5 points for flavor.
Unimpressive. Even after following the directions, they still didn't crisp up. In fact, the breading had a slightly mushy quality to it with no real crispyness. 2/5 for flavor.
Onto the Perdue Chicken Tenders!!
15 chicken strips for about the same price. I think this is great, because I'm all for companies that give you more for your money! :) Also, almost all of them were average or reasonable-sized chicken strips, so that's a win. 5/5 Points for portion.
These are really tasty; there's nothing bland about them. They're very simply flavorful! Points for the flavor . . . 4/5, as I think they could have used a bit more spice to help the chicken flavor stand out.
Perfect. They're crispy and crunchy without being dry. No mushiness. Just crispy chicken strips. 5/5 for Texture.
Now . . . onto the overall results! I created this nifty little table to show the scores in each category and to judge them comparatively! So, go ahead and check it out:
