These Costco oven roasted chicken breast strips are a quick & convenient source of protein!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
Seven chicken breast strips is 110 calories, three and a half grams of fat, one gram of carbohydrates, zero grams of fibre and sugar, 19 grams of protein and 590 mg of sodium.
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.
Taste: 6.5/10 (I much prefer homemade chicken)
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.
