View Full Version : Frozen Chicken Breast Strips?

01-26-2002, 02:38 PM
Are these ok to eat. I bought a brand that has 10 grams of fat, 9 are monosaturated, 1 gram saturated are these ok to eat. They are really convenient for me thats why i like better then fresh. This is per 3 strips.

oH ya, they are made with real chicken white breast meat.

10 grams of fat in 3 strips...must be breaded. What is the serving size in grams and what are the carbs?

01-26-2002, 04:24 PM
yes they are breaded

breaded= blah

i wouldn't eat everyday, but now and then would be ok

01-26-2002, 05:35 PM
id try and stick with the boneless and skinless whole chicken breasts (not breaded)

i get them in a huge bag at costco for around 13 bucks

helps to keep up the protien intake thats for sure ;)

yeah i get the costco ones too

the foster farms frozen bag of chicken is good

lots of protein and medium-high fat. they're great

i got issues with bagged frozen chicken parts. especially those breast strips and pieces.

are you afraid there might be a head with a beak still on it in there?

01-27-2002, 06:43 PM
*lol* no.

from what i understand..those miscleanneous parts are salvaged from chickens that can't be sold as they are....because of things like tumors, lesions...deformities that kind of thing.

it's the tumor that particularly bothers me.

01-27-2002, 06:50 PM

they can sell chicken with tumors in them?!?!

are you sure about it?....sorry to question you, but damn that _has_ to be unhealthy, besides the obvious thing that its gross as hell

now i dont expect everything to be kosher, but id think there are some standards, cause i doubt that a big chain like costco would sell chicken with tumors

im sure they dont want something like that on 60 minutes, too big of a risk

01-27-2002, 07:01 PM
that's my point...they can't sell chickens with tumors on them. whole. but they CAN cut away the decent-looking bits and sell those as chicken strips or whatever.

01-27-2002, 07:05 PM
I buy my chicken from costco as well...sometimes I find that chic breasts can get tiresome so I switch to chicken thighs...which you buy boneless and skinless...i grill them on the good ole george foreman with some seasonings and they seem to keep the flavor better. Although this is probably just due to the fact that they aren't very thick, so more coating and less chicken.

01-27-2002, 10:03 PM
well i get Foster Farms.. and they have a name for themselves.. so it's probably decent

the no name brands are probably terrible

01-27-2002, 10:21 PM
Tumors in chicken? Where did you hear about that? Ehhhhh. Creepy.

01-28-2002, 08:27 AM
not sure. it was someplace valid....and i learned it a few years back. the exact source got flushed from the memory banks eons ago.

01-28-2002, 10:27 AM
I do not put much faith in the govn't but the FDA has regualtions against such stuff. I wonder how much protein is in a tumor?

01-28-2002, 10:29 AM

i'm sure the tumorous parts get ground up and made into catfood or something though. who knows. or better yet..fed to cows.

i think i'm gonna gross myself out into becoming vegetarian for a little while. *lol*

*** Yup, I stick to fresh or nothing. Who knows how long they've been frozen, what perservatives are in them etc....

I know. I'm off of chicken for awhile again. i've successfully skeeved myself.

01-28-2002, 06:10 PM
just as im starting to get the right balance in my diet, ya gotta tell me about the tumor thing

**waves goodbye to the extra 40grams of protien a day from chicken**


01-28-2002, 06:16 PM
if it will ease your mind...you're can get kosher and free-range chickens that don't have tumors.

hey tumors are high in protein! I hear there are a lot of growth factors in there!

*eats bowl of tumors*
