Del Real Pollo Deshebrado review

I quite enjoyed the Chile Verde from Del Real, so much so, I’ve tasked myself with slowly working my way through their line up. This shredded chicken product comes in a similar package to the pork, an external cardboard sleeve that house a plastic tray and sealed plastic bag with the protein inside. You have to cook all of the product in one go.

Cooking: Microwave the inner pouch, or empty into a pan on the stove with some water. Essentially you’re just reheating the pre-cooked chicken. See full details below.

Taste and texture: The chicken is a little mushy and watery, but nothing too unappealing. The taste, is well, chicken. And little else – the ingredients are basically chicken, onion, salt and garlic.

Overall: This is a very neutral product that would work in a variety of dishes – I used mine in burritos and chimichanga over a couple of evenings. The watery nature of the chicken means it’s not perfect for me. Personally I think a store bought rotisserie chicken quickly broken down is *far* superior – but this product fits a niche in that it’ll have a longer shelf life in your refrigerator than a fresh chicken.

Is Del Real Pollo Deshebrado any good?

This is essentially shredded white chicken that’s simple to reheat and use in your favorite dish. It has no real overt flavors of its own, making it a flexible blank canvass for your cooking.
