How did we make it?

The pack mentions four ways to cook these breast strips : 

  • Deep-fry 
  • Bake
  • Shallow-fry 
  • Air fry 

We deep-fried these breast strips in refined oil till the time they turned golden brown. 

Our Observations 

Appearance + Cooking Process 

These are long strips with rounded edges. The color of the meat is off-white and the coating is slightly white-peachy.

The cooking process was smooth as these did not absorb much oil and did not break apart while deep-frying. It cooked perfectly through the center and was uniformly browned. 

Taste + Texture 

These strips have a crunchy outer layer and juicy, tender chicken on the inside. The proportion of the breading to the chicken is just right. We never felt as if we were simply tasting the outer covering, i.e, no empty pockets. 

It is a beautifully seasoned chicken snack with a balanced salt level and mild heat. You can serve them alongside any sauces or dips to elevate the flavors further.
