I heard a rumor that sounded too good to be true. I heard there was a frozen chicken product at Brookshire’s that tasted a lot like a place where we eat a lot and that’s closed on Sundays. I didn’t believe it.
One Sunday morning, my son wanted chicken and waffles for breakfast. I didn’t really feel like frying chicken, so I added “Southern Style Chicken” to my grocery list.
Found with the frozen foods, John Soules Foods® Southern Style Chicken comes in nuggets or strips. We were making chicken and waffles, so I opted for the strips.
We heated them in the oven, per the directions on the bag. When they came out, I asked my boys, who are connoisseurs of the other establishment, to taste them before we paired them with waffles and syrup. They agreed that they taste a lot like their favorite fast-food restaurant.
Lightly breaded, these strips and nuggets are 100-percent white meat chicken and so delicious. What we didn’t use for the chicken and waffles, we baked later in the week and used for chicken salads atop crispy greens tossed with fresh tomatoes, avocados and bits of crispy bacon.
We’ve also tried the nuggets dipped in barbecue or honey mustard sauce. They make great after-school snacks or lunches on the weekends.
