If you like the convenience of things like chicken nuggets and chicken strips but want something a little more interesting, these Sunrise Farms Chicken, Ham & Swiss Breaded Chicken Breast Cutlettes might be for you! They offer the convenience of other frozen bake-and-serve chicken products, but seem a little bit fancier and maybe more suited to adults. If you’re wondering whether you should pick up a box, keep reading.

These aren’t very good at all. After baking the breasts the oven they looked deliciously crispy and golden brown. Unfortunately, there isn’t much filling in the breast, just a small piece of ham and a thin layer of cheese with a big air pocket. I wouldn’t be calling these “stuffed” chicken breasts. I’d call them “meagerly filled”.
The flavor of the actual chicken is very salty and due to the saltiness tastes pretty good. There isn’t a ton of chicken because it’s pretty thin. One positive is that I didn’t notice any gristle or fatty bits in the chicken. I don’t really taste the ham or cheese much, just very slightly.
As I was eating these I was trying to figure out what they reminded me of and I finally concluded they taste like a giant chicken nugget with some ham and cheese in the middle.
The 1.13-kilogram box comes with eight 142-gram stuffed chicken breasts and costs $13.79 Canadian at Costco. This doesn’t seem expensive for eight convenient and ready-to-cook chicken breasts.
Each chicken breast in the box comes individually packaged.
These aren’t fully cooked so you need to ensure that they’re cooked thoroughly to 165 degrees Fahrenheit and the box does not recommend heating them in the microwave. I baked them in the oven for 30 minutes and they were fully cooked and nice and crispy on the outside.
These need to be kept frozen and the best before date is 10 months from when I purchased them. Despite not liking these much, they do make a convenient dinner or lunch. All you have to do is unpackage them and pop them in the oven. They work well served with rice, quinoa, a salad, noodles or potatoes.
One stuffed chicken breast contains 290 calories, 12 grams of fat, 20 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fibre, one gram of sugar, 24 grams of protein and 500 milligrams of sodium.
There’s a decent amount of protein in one chicken breast, the fat content comes from the cheese and ham. The sodium is pretty much what I expect to see in convenient processed foods like this.
These chicken breasts contain wheat, milk, soy and egg. There are a bunch of ingredients I don’t love seeing like soy protein isolate, vegetable oil, sugar and soy flour. Ingredients like these are typical for quick and convenient products like this though and if you made them from scratch at home you can control what goes in them.
Walk on by!
These aren’t the gourmet stuffed chicken breast I was expecting. There isn’t enough filling and they taste pretty processed.
