Today we’re matching up two of the Gluten Free Chicken Strip brands to determine which will come out a winner!  ; )
In the left corner we have . . .  Perdue Simply Smart Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders, and . . .
In the right corner we have . . . Tyson Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Strips!
The two opponents will be judged in three categories: PortionFlavor and Texture. They’ll be scored separately on a scale of 1 to 5 (5 being the best, 1 being the worst), then they’ll be scored comparatively for judging purposes. We’ll begin with the Tyson Chicken Strips . . .
507989
Portion:
Disappointing. We paid around $6 for the bag, and we received six chicken strips, and a chicken “nubbin”, because there is no way this thing could be dubbed a “strip”. Only two of the strips were average sized; the rest were itty bitty midget strips.  Out of 5 points, these receive a 2 for portion, because the bag COULD have been empty, and that would’ve been the worst. Right?
1426100381
Flavor:
Not bad. They were kind of peppery, which was tasty. Other than that, there wasn’t much flavor. I kind of wish they’d been a bit spicier. 3/5 points for flavor.

Texture:
Unimpressive. Even after following the directions, they still didn’t crisp up. In fact, the breading had a slightly mushy quality to it with no real crispyness. 2/5 for flavor.

Onto the Perdue Chicken Tenders!!

5765820
Portion:
15 chicken strips for about the same price. I think this is great, because I’m all for companies that give you more for your money! 🙂 Also, almost all of them were average  or reasonable-sized chicken strips, so that’s a win. 5/5 Points for portion.
1426106406
Flavor:
These are really tasty; there’s nothing bland about them. They’re very simply flavorful! Points for the flavor . . . 4/5, as I think they could have used a bit more spice to help the chicken flavor stand out.

Texture:
Perfect. They’re crispy and crunchy without being dry. No mushiness. Just crispy chicken strips. 5/5 for Texture.

Now . . .  onto the overall results! I created this nifty little table to show the scores in each category and to judge them comparatively! So, go ahead and check it out:
