Tyson Naturals Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets Review

Tyson Naturals Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets

We have a ton of affection for chicken nuggets here at Freezer Meal Frenzy. In fact, we’d eat them every day if it didn’t cause our doctors to scream at us. And when it comes to frozen chicken nuggets, it’s really hard to top the offerings of the Tyson brand. So today we’re very happy to be diving into the Tyson Naturals Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets, the gluten-free take on Tyson’s standard nuggets.

First off, we need to say right away that these nuggets smelled great as soon as we opened the package. Yes, even when they’re still completely frozen, these have a strong scent to them, and it’s the sort of scent that will having you licking your chops and drooling like a cartoon wolf.

But don’t just dig in and start eating these straight out of the bag! No, these must be cooked. If you’ve ever heated nuggets before, the cooking process is really easy. You can use the microwave or the oven, but we almost always go with the oven when it comes to chicken nuggets. These tasty little morsels deserve the best! (If you want to read the full cooking instructions straight off the bag, check out our package scans at the bottom of this review.)

The chicken here is fantastic. It’s rich-tasting and pleasantly juicy. In fact, it’s hard to believe these nuggets came out of the freezer. They just taste so fresh and flavorful.

The gluten-free breading is a joy as well. It’s a little more gravelly than a normal chicken nugget (which you can probably see in the photograph above), but it’s crispy and has a lovely flavor. It has garlic, paprika extract, and “spices,” as well, giving it a little bit of a zing. This breading is definitely more flavorful that we were expecting.

Between the high-quality chicken and great-tasting breading, these nuggets are good enough that you can enjoy them without any sort of dipping sauce at all. However, a little bit of BBQ sauce really brings them to the next level of the flavorsphere!

The serving size is four nuggets, which seems decent if you’re eating these as a side dish. If you want to make a full meal of nuggets, however, we’re pretty sure you’ll be eating more than four. If you do manage to stick with the four-nugget serving size, you’ll be gulping down 210 calories (110 from fat) and 400 mg of sodium. That means that six nuggets is still pretty reasonable (at 315 calories), but at eight nuggets those calories really start piling up (that’s 420 calories and 800 mg of sodium!) Also consider that you’ll need to tack on the calories from whatever sauce you end up dipping these in.

The Tyson Naturals Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Nuggets don’t taste like a gluten-free product at all. In fact, you could easily pass these off as your normal, albeit very high-quality, batch of chicken nuggets. We might even prefer these to Tyson’s other offerings (which are also very good). If you’ve been craving nuggets but your dietary restrictions won’t allow you to consume gluten-based products, these nuggets are your ticket to Flavor Town!
