Given the logo on the basic packaging, I believe the Home Chef here is the popular meal kit delivery company; who have now apparently branched out into providing their products to grocery stores. Five pieces come inside the refrigerated, resealable package. I paid about nine bucks at Kroger for these.
Cooking: These are precooked tenders, no cooking information is provided by the brand. I heated them up in the air fryer. Microwaving fared a little too mushy for my taste.
Taste and texture: Is too crisp a thing? When I heated these in the air fryer and found the final result too hard. I never thought I’d complain about too much crunch. Of course that’s on me and my preferred cooking method, but I found the exterior coating ultimately too much. The chicken itself was average.
Overall: I finished the container, but would pass on these again. Something like Tyson’s Southern Style Tenderloins are better in every regard for my money; not least the added convenience of having them on hand in the freezer.
