When something comes packaged in a ‘sack’ you know to keep your expectations in check. Said sack from Banquet here offers ten reformed chicken patties, that lets be honest, are pretty removed from the bird itself. I paid $3.98 for the 24ounce pack here, which came with 10 patties. Forty cents a sandwich certainly doesn’t hurt the wallet.
Speaking of the sack – this particular one is resealable – which is a huge plus. So many frozen products miss this particular step. That said, my neanderthal brain couldn’t work out the actual system involved here, and I ended up destroying the bag anyway. Caveat emptor.
Anyway, when you’re craving a fast food-esque chicken fix, this is exactly what you’re looking for, right down to the oodles of mouth smacking salt. These patties live up to that promise. The flavor is relatively muted with the familiar onion/garlic powder notes, and the patty is a vaguely-undidentifable mush of sorts. Again, no matter, when you’re craving this very particular product these hit the spot.
My preferred fixings are home made slaw and a lashing of Peri Peri sauce. Creamy, spicy and fruity. Perfect!
