I am not by any means a vegetarian, but I am always looking for healthier food options that taste just as good as the “bad” versions but are also lower in Points.
Since chicken nuggets and chicken tenders have always been a favorite food of mine (and my 3yr old), I have tried tons of different brands, looking for a tasty, yet healthier alternative. I have found a few good ones, but when I recently tasted these Gardein Crispy Tenders, I felt like I had finally hit the jackpot. They were amazing! And at just 2 Points for two tenders, this is something I’ll be eating on a very regular basis.
Granted, they aren’t huge..they are definitely bigger than a chicken nugget, but not quite as big as a chicken finger. But they taste GREAT, and taste almost exactly like chicken. The breading even tastes a bit like KFC’s. But these Gardein Crispy Tenders are entirely plant based, making them a fantastic vegan food too.
