GF Chicken Nuggets

Name: Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets

Package Description: Breaded Nugget Shaped Chicken Breast Patties with Rib Meat

Brand: Live G Free

Grocer: Aldi

Price point: $4.99

Why I picked it up: It was the first time I saw GF chicken nuggets on the shelf for less than $6.00 a package.

Summary of Preparation: Cook in microwave for 50-60 seconds, more time as needed.

Initial impression: They are tiny.

Lasting impression: They are tiny. Seriously, a little bigger than a quarter, about a half-inch thick. Calling it a “patty” is being very generous. Maybe they are cut from chicken patties, but these are like chicken “bites.” The breading is decently seasoned (they claim paprika and tumeric specifically), and the chicken inside tastes like minced chicken from your typical fast food place.

Recommended Accompaniments: I eat mine with Chick-fil-a Honey Roasted BBQ sauce or Marie’s Blue Cheese salad dressing. It works as a small snack or you can prepare ten of them as a main dish with a salad/veggie/fruit combo.

Kid friendly: Not mine, but maybe yours? The kids like their regular Chicken McNuggets or CFA grilled nuggets but refuse to eat these Aldi ones in any quantity. If I slice it in half, they will try a bite, but I think that’s more of a courtesy than because they want any…

Repurchase point: Yes. I’ve bought three bags in the last month, but remember I’m also pregnant and need the protein.
