Today I’m reviewing the Costco Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breast Strips. I bought these on my last trip to Costco because I like the idea of having quick and convenient protein options in the fridge to keep me away from snacking on cookies and chocolate!

I recently reviewed the Costco Fresh Additions Fully Cooked Chicken Breast Bites, Costco Pinty’s Buffalo Chicken Flings, Costco Connie’s Kitchen Chicken Burgers and Costco Hampton House Chicken Strips.

Convenient, healthy and gluten-free!

Location in Store

You can find the strips in the refrigerated deli section at Costco near the refrigerated appetizers, tofu and sauerkraut. The item number is 318223.

Taste

I like the Pinty’s chicken breast strips better than the Fresh Additions Chicken Breast Strips. They’re not too salty and the chicken tastes a bit higher quality with less gristle and hard pieces.

I love that the roasted outside of the chicken with the grill marks gives the strips extra flavor.

These are all-white chicken strips so there isn’t really much flavor from fat. They’re seasoned well and I really enjoy the roasted flavor on the outside as well as the grill marks that add additional smoky flavor. Although these are really convenient I prefer the chicken breasts I bake at home either from frozen or fresh chicken breasts.

You can freeze the chicken breast strips for up to three months after purchasing them.

Cost

These come in a two pack and the cost is $17.49 Canadian for the one kilogram pack of Costco ready to eat chicken breast strips split into two separate 500 gram packs.

Two 500 gram packages come separated to make one kilogram of chicken.

Convenience

The Costco Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breast Strips are ready to eat! They’re fully cooked so you eat them cold or heat them, whichever your preference. If you’re having them in a salad you might just want to eat them cold but if you’re using them in fajitas or something similar you’d probably heat them up!

Gluten free, no artificial colours or flavors and high in protein!

The strips need to be kept refrigerated and the best before date is about three weeks from the date we purchased them. Once you open a 500 gram container of chicken breast strips there’s also no way to reseal them so I wish the package resealed. You can freeze them in the original packaging for up to three months.

These are great for on-the-go lunches or snacks and pack a punch of protein!

Ingredients

The ingredients list is short and simple with nothing questionable except for the natural flavour. The definition of natural flavour is a variety substances from plant or animal sources that add flavor to what they’re put in.

The Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breast Strips are gluten-free and the ingredients list is shorter and more natural than the Costco Fresh Additions Fully Cooked Chicken Breast Strips.

Scoring

Taste: 6.5/10 (I much prefer homemade chicken)

Cost: 6.5/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 9.5/10

Overall

Give it a try!

These are great to bring to work or school for lunch or have at home for an easy snack, lunch or dinner. Although they’re extremely convenient I don’t find them as tasty as homemade chicken.

Have you tried these chicken breast strips? What do you think of them?

  1. I never comment on these things, and this is literally the first time I’ve been to this website, but had to chime in. Natalie, I’m a web designer in Ontario. The photos on your website are fine, it’s nice to see products represented as-is for the purpose of a consumer review. In Trish’s (confusingly mean) comment, she seems to label you as a consistent, generous, and positive person. I think these are great qualities. Trish is a nerd. Keep on doing what you love Natalie, we need more people like you.

  2. That’s Natalie for you. Once again, another example of the toxic positivity/optimism trend we’re seeing online.

    I find Natalie is extremely generous with her ratings, especially when she repeats the same old “Give it a try!” when it’s just awful. Her tastes almost never align with ours. I just visit to read what, if anything she might criticize. It seemsthe only thing she seems to be passionate about is gluten free items at Costco.

    I have to give her credit though, she does upload some rather pathetic (natural) looking photos. The one that I love the most is the one with the roast beef and what she believes is the best side dish to go along with it—an awful looking dry baked potato without any vegetables.

    Hun, mashed potatoes or soft Greek style roasted potatoes go well with roast beef. If you have the time, go for the Yorkshire pudding. But no vegetables? Again, we don’t share the same taste buds.

    • Hi Trish,

      I don’t believe in censorship, so I’m publishing this comment even though I think it’s extremely (and unnecessarily) mean. I’ve never heard the phrase “toxic positivity/optimism”. Personally, I think the world could use a lot more positivity. I tend to think toxic negativity is more the norm online. I try to be fair and honest in my reviews. I don’t do paid reviews and I even disclose when I receive free samples of products (which is rare).

      One of the reasons I shop at Costco so much is that I think they do a mostly good job of selecting/curating their products. The quality is generally very high. While the average grocery store item might be a 5/10 for me, the average Costco item is probably a 7 or something. In any case, I think my review scores are probably secondary to the other information I’m providing to users – things like photos of what the food actually looks like when you make it yourself, cooking instructions, nutrition information, etc. Food is subjective and everyone has a unique palate.

      While I put a lot of effort into Costcuisine, including doing my best to take high-quality photos, I do work full-time as a nurse, so I don’t have time to make meals specifically to take glamor photos. What you see in that photo is actually what we had for dinner that evening. We did have a side salad as well, but it didn’t make it into the photos. Oh, and it was actually a stuffed potato and it was delicious. I guess that didn’t translate into the photo. If you prefer mashed potatoes and Greek salad as your sides, please feel free to make that meal for yourself.

      Anyway, thanks for reading!

      Natalie

    • Hi Trish, “Hun”, if you don’t agree with Natalie’s reviews, that’s fine. Stop reading it. Start your own blog.
      See Jan’s review for a thoughtful way to respond when you have a differing viewpoint.

  3. Thanks so much for your review. While there is the convenience factor, I think your nutrition rating is too generous based on the sodium content. 100 grams of meat isn’t very much but it represents 26% of the recommended daily allowance of sodium….. that’s a no go for me!

    Reply
    • Jan, don’t forget that not everyone is on a low sodium diet. Some people, such as those with dysautonomia, require a high sodium diet (5-10 g per day). For these people, this product contains as little as 5.9% of their daily amount. Since there is such a wide range in recommended daily amounts, sodium content is not always a good measure of how healthy a food is.
