I try to eat more fresh than frozen food but sometimes I just love to have something that only requires me basically turning on my oven. I picked up these Erie Meats Jumbo Chicken Breast Bites.

Taste

These were quite yummy! The breading on the jumbo chicken breast bites is seasoned well and gets mildly crisp when baked in the oven. The meat inside is definitely all white meat and was moist and tender. Out of the 16 or so bites that I cooked up only one piece had a bit of gristle/hardness that I didn’t eat. The breading is only lightly seasoned which makes the jumbo chicken breast bites very versatile. I used them in a stir fry and coated them in a bit of stir fry sauce and they tasted delicious. You could dip them in all different kinds of sauce.

Cost

The 1.5 kg box of Erie Meats Jumbo Chicken Breast Bites is $11.99 Canadian on sale at Costco. The regular price is $14.99 Canadian. If you can purchase these when they’re on sale it’s a pretty good deal! There was enough bites for about three meals in my bag and the bites are also all different sizes, some small, some medium and some large.

Convenience

The box comes with one big bag of jumbo chicken breast bites and unfortunately the bag is not resealable. These are very easy to cook up on a baking tray in the oven and they’re also versatile. 400 degrees for about 25 minutes. You can use them in a salad, in a sandwich or to make stir fry like I did! You could also eat them plain with some fries and plum sauce or serve them as an appetizer.

Nutrition

Four jumbo bites is 230 calories, eight grams of fat, 17 grams of protein, 650 mg of sodium, one gram of fibre and 25 grams of carbohydrates. That’s a little bit too much sodium and fat but I do like the amount of protein! Obviously these are far less healthy than just cooking up a boneless, skinless chicken breast and the ingredients aren’t all that natural either.

I try to limit my frozen food intake but when I’m having a busy week and need a quick dinner then I have no problem indulging in things like the Erie Meat Jumbo Chicken Breast Bites. They’re versatile and also tasty!

  1. I bought these on sale at Costco. I felt sick as I ate them because half of each nugget was gristle. So awful! I don’t usually complain and am not very fussy but you should know that these are not good at all!

  2. These are pretty good if you prepare them right.
    There is a secret to them:
    Cook them for 20min in air fryer or oven, when you remove them from the oven/air fryer CUT THEM IN HALF right away.
    This lets the steam out, the coating stays stuck to the chicken.
    If you don’t cut them in half, they are steamed inside the coating and are chewy and rubbery.

  3. I would not feed these to my worst enemy for two reasons, first being, karma and second, embarrassment. They are simply disgusting. I have a three year old who will eat drywall. Not kidding. They won’t eat these. They’re the worst frozen food I’ve ever tried. For fun, we try new things from different shops, some of which have been featured on fear factor… This chicken is objectively bad. Do not.

    • I agree.the quality has gone down over the last year and a half. I bought two boxes of this from Costco in Markham @ $16.99 a box. One box has Chicken crumble ( pieces about the size of a small green pea) in about 25% of the box. Definitely NOT JUMBO size,by any stretch of the imagination.

      Some pieces tasted like they had fallen into a bowl of salt before being coated.
      Some pieces inside the bag looked like turkey,not chicken.

      For that price,I expect to get quality product,not garbage. Am not going to buy this again.

  4. Probably will never buy these again. They taste ok but 1/4 of what was in each bag was just the crumble coating. I feel like I was ripped off paying for extra weigh that was nothing but crumb.

  5. I have tried your chicken bites in the upper photo yesterday at 5:30 pm Tuesday November 16/2021 and have very bad stomach crumbs and severe diarrhea just ended an hour ago
    We bought it from Costco Burlington Ontario (brant and North service rd)
    I didn’t go to hospital or reported to CFIA or need any compensation from you but I want you to check and call it after testing in your labs
    Thanks

    • You call yourself a doctor yet you aren’t intelligent enough to read this person’s disclaimer, she is reviewing the product, giving her experience with her purchase. Why would the idea of expecting compensation from her even enter the conversation? If you are that poorly read, perhaps you didn’t read or understand they need to be cooked!

  6. Every single bite I took had gristle and chewy pieces. It was not at all appealing, even my 3 year old toddler wouldn’t eat them

  7. I keep stuff like this in the freezer for when my teens get home from school. We cook them in our actifry. They are really good done that way and really rather crispy. My son, a fairly picky eater, loves them.
