Cooking: You can bake or microwave these per the packaging (see below). Microwaving delivers a listless experience, all spongy and soggy and mushy. I went with the air fryer, and that was order of magnitude better; turning the otherwise thin and meagre coating into a slightly crisp textural contrasts.
Taste and texture: These are far from my favorite chicken nuggets, possessing a slightly greasy after taste that lingers. The air fryer did help reduce this somewhat, though not entirely. The interior chicken is highly processed, with little poultry-taste. The coating is very thin and again, microwaved, is a mushy meagre thing.
Overall: Quantity reigns over quality here. If you’re looking to load the freezer up with something basic to cook up in a 60 second rush, you find it. If you’re looking for. There are much better nuggets out there though, see our roundup here.
Perdue Chicken Breast Tenders cooking and nutrition
Are Perdue Chicken Breast Tenders any good?
These a pass for me. The interior chicken is dry and spongey with little to recommend. There’s a slightly greasy after taste and overall, a quite unremarkable product.
