Not the Costco food court chicken strips but still pretty good!

So up until a few years ago chicken strips were a major part of my diet! I ALWAYS ordered them whenever I went out for dinner and when I first started working as a nurse I would work evenings and come home at midnight and make myself chicken fingers and fries to eat while I settled down from work and watched TV (so healthy). I was pretty excited to buy these Hampton House Chicken Strips to review.
These are similar to the Costco food court chicken strips but definitely not near as good. The strips come in all different shapes and sizes. They’re seasoned, breaded, raw whole chicken breast fillets. I like my chicken strips crispy so I baked them a few minutes longer than the package directions called for. These are flavorful and salty and could be enjoyed without any dipping sauce on a salad or in something. I recommend them with plum sauce those. Unfortunately both my husband and I found bits of gristle in our chicken strips which was disappointing. Oddly enough we both also complained of heartburn after eating these and I never get heartburn!
I paid $19.99 Canadian for the two kilogram large bag of Hampton House Chicken Strips.
Kids would love these for lunch or dinner. They’re also convenient for adult lunches or dinner. The bag is resalable which is a must considering how large it is. Most chicken strips I buy are already cooked so I was a little surprised that these are raw, You definitely have to make sure these are cooked fully. The strips need to be kept in the freezer. You need to practice safe handling with the chicken strips as well as they can’t be microwaved. The directions are to bake the chicken strips at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 18 to 22 minutes. I baked mine for probably about 25 minutes because I didn’t think they looked crispy enough at 22 minutes.
1.5 pieces of Hampton House Chicken Strips is 170 calories, five grams of fat, 18 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, one gram of sugar, 14 grams of protein and 400 mg of sodium. The ingredients list is also very straight forward and has ingredients I’d expect to see. These aren’t exactly healthy though.
I love chicken strips but I think I’d rather just get them from the Costco food court when I have a craving for chicken strips! If you haven’t had the Costco Canada food court chicken strips you must try them!
What is your kids’ favorite Costco freezer item?
