Tyson Chicken Tenderloins & Chicken Nuggets


By Barb Nicoletti – Are you looking for different options for you or your children to have for dinner, lunch or just a quick snack?  When feeding a toddler, it can be difficult to find foods that they like to eat and are easy for them to pick up with their little chubby fingers.  Luckily, a few years back on one of my many journeys to find foods that were safe for them to eat, I came across Tyson Chicken.  Before I had children, I never would have thought of purchasing pre-packaged, pre cooked foods.  But when little ones are hungry and time is of the essence, those thoughts go right out the window.

Tyson has an array of pre-cooked and uncooked products that are great for the whole family.  The Tyson products range from marinated chicken wing products to breaded chicken nuggets in fun shapes for the kid in all of us.  

Most of the breaded chicken products do not contain dairy, eggs, nuts, peanuts, fish or shellfish.  Now they do contain wheat and some do contain soy, so if these items are an issue for you or your family, read the label carefully.  I normally purchase the chicken nuggets and chicken tenderloins because they only contain wheat and do not have soy in them. 

I honestly thought, “How good can these actually be?” but my kids gobble them up and are always asking for more. Put a side dish with them, and you have a quick and easy meal pre-pared in minutes, or cook them up in the morning, and send the kids off to school with something they may actually eat for lunch.   The cost of a 3lb bag of chicken nuggets in my area is about $5.00 and it lasts a long time.    Most of their products are reasonably priced making a quick meal very affordable.

I recommend giving the nuggets and tenderloins a whirl, but definitely check out the Tyson website to see what other great products they have available at www.tyson.com.

  1. I have eaten Tyson Nuggets for a long time, but recently encountered a problem. Last night, I had some chicken nuggets for dinner and not only did they taste fishy, but they also smelled fishy. I promptly broke out in hives because I am allergic to fish. WARNING: anyone with severe seafood allergies do NOT eat.
