Bag of frozen Perdue Popcorn Chicken purchased at Costco
Perdue Popcorn Chicken cooked

My boyfriend and I bought some of the frozen Perdue Popcorn Chicken from Costco to have as a snack every now and then. The instructions on the bag state the preferred cooking method is using a conventional oven or toaster oven, but we just used the microwave instructions. The microwave instructions don't state how many pieces to microwave for 3 - 3.5 minutes, so we just tried microwaving 8 pieces.

Although the breading was thick, it didn't turn out very crispy. It was kind of doughy and a little too thick for me. The chicken underneath the breading was OK, but it was a little dry, and the overall taste of the chicken was a little peppery.

It was fine as a quick snack, but I don't know if I'd get these again.

Box of Lemongrass Chicken Stix from Trader Joe's
Lemongrass Chicken Stix from Trader Joe's cooked

I've seen the frozen Thai Lemongrass Chicken Stix at Trader Joe's for a while, but I've never had it, so I finally decided to give a box a try. I cooked the whole box of 10 in a toaster oven following the oven instructions. I baked them on top of foil instead of a baking sheet.

The chicken stick wrappers were crunchy like spring rolls, and the texture on the filling inside was good; it wasn't mushy. I liked the slightly sweet lemongrass flavor of the "lemongrass-flavored" chicken. Unfortunately, that wasn't the strongest taste. The taste of the chicken was a little lemony and VERY peppery. The first "chicken stick" I had was OK, but as I continued eating, the pepper taste became way too overwhelming, and I couldn't eat any more.

Box of Fry's / Kroger Thai Coconut Curry Chicken

Fry's / Kroger Thai Coconut Curry Chicken

Similar to Kroger's Korean kalbi beef, Kroger's Thai coconut curry chicken came in a sealed bag with easy microwave instructions.

The chicken was like grilled chicken thigh meat, and it had a little bit of gristle. The curry was a thick sauce, and it tasted like a very sweet coconut curry. While I would have preferred the curry to be less sweet, I was happy that the sweetness didn't totally overwhelm the entire taste, so I was still able to enjoy the coconut curry taste with the chicken.
