Review: Perdue Simply Smart Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders

I first heard about Perdue Simply Smart Gluten-Free products back in October, but had been unable to find them locally.  I ran into Giant Eagle earlier this week and went to grab a bag of the Tyson Gluten-Free Chicken and spotted the Perdue Simply Smart Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders.

I decided on the Perdue variety for a couple of reasons.  First,  we hadn’t tried them yet and I wanted to share my thoughts with you all.  Second, there is 65% more in the Perdue package for only $.50 more. 

INGREDIENTS: Boneless Chicken Breast with Rib Meat, Water, Rice Flour, Yellow Corn Flour, Yellow Corn Meal. CONTAINS LESS THAN 2% OF Salt, Corn Starch, Brown Sugar, Raisin Juice Concentrate, Honey, Yeast Extract, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, White Pepper, Spices, Natural Extractives of Celery Seed.

  • Fully cooked and gluten free.
  • Minimally processed. No artificial ingredients.
  • 30% fewer calories and 50% less fat than USDA data for breaded fried boneless chicken.
  • No preservatives or fillers.
  • Made with only white meat chicken.

These were a big hit in our house!  Needless to say, they didn’t last long!  Jon loves chicken fingers and nuggets and these are so easy to prepare. I am thrilled to see the certified gluten-free label on this product.  I am much more likely to purchase a product that is certified gluten-free over one that isn’t. 

Perdue has recipes on their website and a store locator to see where you can find the gluten-free breaded chicken near you.

    I found them at my local Wal-Mart for $3.98 and Food Lion for $6.79. They’re okay but I’m not much into already prepared gluten-free foods.

      Sylvia,

      Thanks for sharing where you were able to find the chicken. I understand not being into prepared food, but it is nice to have the option.

    Love them, I am glad companies are providing us with these prepared GF foods. While I like to make my own stuff and teach my kids to do so…it is nice to have this available on game nights and for when the boys get home. My boys are 10 and 14 and NEED options with protein that are desirable, similar to what their friends are eating and healthy. We struggle with weight (they need to put it on)–with this type of food, it makes it easier for us to supplement their diet in a fairly healthy way. Thanks Perdue. We purchase these almost weekly now. Love that they are certified GF too.

      So glad that you have found something for your boys! My Jon, 17, needs to gave roughly 20 lbs and he is picky. He also wants to eat what his friends are eating.

    I just tried Perdue’s chicken breast tenders and I am very disappointed!
    It says minimally processed on the lower left corner of the bag, but I didn’t taste any chicken. It was like rubber inside and the taste of fat lingered in my mouth.
    I think if you are advertising chicken breast, you should bite into solid chicken breast, not a mixture of anything else.
