Recently I was contacted by Ian’s to review a couple of their newer products and host a giveaway for a really cool prize package for one lucky reader & their friends or family. I have previously tried only a couple of Ian’s products, so I was excited to give some others a try. I was able to try the Chicken Tenders & Pepperoni French Bread Pizza, or maybe I should say Jon was. I was able to get a couple of bites out of the food before he destroyed it and boy, was I glad that I did!
These were some of the best gluten-free chicken tenders that I have tried since going gluten-free. They were very crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, like the name implies. I followed the box directions and made them in the oven (microwave preparation is not recommended). The box says that there 2 servings, 3 ounces each, in the box, but Jon ate the whole box in one sitting. I can see where 2 servings would be possible if these were being fed to a younger child, but otherwise, just 1 serving.
Pepperoni Pizza French Bread Pizza
Another hit from Ian’s! These pizzas were really good. They were crunchy, just like a French bread pizza is supposed to be. Again, Jon polished off this whole box in one sitting. The kid can eat! I was lucky to snap the picture and snag a bite! As with the chicken tenders, the instructions recommend baking in the oven, not the microwave.
