Product Reviews: Ian's Chicken Tenders & French Bread Pizza

The other day we tried probably one of the best pre-made gluten-free chicken tenders that I have come across. Ian’s Chicken Tenders. When I opened the package to get the chicken ready to bake, I couldn’t believe the size of them. They looked like they had come from a restaurant.

The directions specifically state to cook these in the oven, not the microwave. They turned out crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, like the name implies. The box says that there 2 servings, 3 ounces each, in the box, but Jon ate the whole box in one sitting. I can see where 2 servings would be possible if these were being fed to a younger child, but otherwise, just 1 serving.

We also had the pleasure of sampling the French Bread Pizza with uncured pepperoni. This was another hit from Ian’s! These pizzas were really good. They were crunchy, just like a French bread pizza is supposed to be. Again, Jon polished off this whole box in one sitting. The kid can eat! I was lucky to snap the picture and snag a bite! As with the chicken tenders, the instructions recommend baking in the oven, not the microwave.

Both of these products should be available in stores across the US. Click here to find the one closest to you.

While we don’t eat a lot of pre-made, processed food in our house, it is nice to have some on hand for busy nights. With the kids being in extracurricular activities, our schedule is extremely hectic. Knowing that I can count on quality products, like Ian’s, makes some of those days just a little easier.

    The chicken fingers must have changed since I tried them a couple of year ago. Might have to give them another try after reading your rave review. I know if Jon likes them they’re pretty tasty 😉

    • LOL…..Jon is a tough sell, so yeah, you will probably like them. 🙂 I was impressed. I was not a fan of boxed, pre-made chicken tenders before going GF. These are better than those I remember eating back then.


  2. We purchased the chicken tenders after reading this review. We were highy disappointed and will not buy them again. Bell and Evans chicken tenders are way better!!! I guess we all have different opinions when it comes to reviews.

  3. I cooked them in the oven. So funny, when you said one of the best chicken tenders, I assumed you had tried Bell and Evans. You must must must try Bell and Evans gf nuggets and tenders (black box gf, blue box not). They are a staple in my house! Good size box and yields 2 large portions or 3 smaller. The box doesn’t say to flip them over during cooking, but I find fipping them over after 14 minutes helps them cook better. Can’t wait to read your review of them after you try them.
