Product Review: NEW Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets


chicken nuggets 001

Applegate Farms is an awesome company that I have loved for many years. Before my Celiac diagnosis, I loved their Chicken Pot Pies. Since my diagnosis, I haven’t been able to enjoy those anymore, but they do offer a wide range of products that are GF Friendly. You may remember from previous posts, that Applegate Farms makes the MOST delicious bacon! It’s certified humane and contains no nitrates. Yeah…I’m pretty much their biggest fan. So when they emailed me to let me know about their new GF chicken nuggets, I emailed back instantly. They’re not yet widely available in stores (I’ll let you know the minute they arrive), but Applegate Farms was kind enough to send me a box to try!

So good! Chicken nuggets are something that are very easy to mess up. If they’re not made with the best chicken, they can really turn out inedible. Then add in the complexity of a gluten free batter…it can be tough. But these were AHHHmazing!! I’ve tried other brands of GF chicken nuggets, and I did not like those at all. I will definitely buy these again! And I’m crossing my fingers that they come out with a Gluten Free Chicken Sandwich!

I served them with a side of Roasted Brussel Sprouts tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with garlic powder and minced onion.

I actually couldn’t wait for the sprouts to finish roasting before I finished off my nuggets. So I had a two course lunch!

better nuggets than Ians?

10 times better than Ians!! I thought the Ian's batter was a little thick and tasteless. You would never even know these were gluten free!

My mom just recently went GF, so I'll have to tell her about these nuggets and your blog. :)

Lauren said...

Mmm, these look really good, yum!!

Marlow said...

Karly- Definitely do! Feel free to email me too! The first 6 months were the hardest for me!

Lauren- Thanks! I can't wait till they come out in stores!

Have you had the GF Bell and Evans Chicken Breast Nuggets? They taste just like their regular nuggets.

I have had those and they are so good too! What I like most about the AF ones is that they are pre-cooked, so I can take them frozen to work and just micro them!
