5) Applegate Gluten-Free Chicken Breast Tenders

To conduct our taste test, we heated each of the brands’ offerings in the oven according to the instructions on the packaging, but gave them a little more time than specified to make sure they reached the peak of crispiness. This averaged out to about 25 or so minutes at 425 degrees. We then sampled each variety, making sure to note flavor, smell, texture, size, seasoning, whether or not whole chicken strips were used, and overall enjoyment factor. We ate them straight, without any sauce. Some were runaway favorites; others were unanimous duds.

These are made with real chicken breast tenders, and are breaded with rice flour, tapioca dextrin, and cornstarch instead of wheat flour. They’re also antibiotic-free. The tasters found the breading to be mushy and the whole product to be overly soft with no crunch (seems to be a trend with Applegate), but the "real chicken" was a pleasant surprise and the overall flavor was good, with hints of onion and garlic and a nice hit of black pepper. Organic and gluten-free costs more, though, and these provided the least amount of product for the highest price.
