Costco Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts Review

Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts

Convenient but definitely not my favorite!

Hi everyone! Costco has a ton of new food products I can’t wait to try so if you enjoy reading Costco food products reviews  follow me on Instagram or Facebook and also check out my blog Costcuisine where I review tons of Costco food products each week! Last week I posted a review for the Costco Saputo Ricotta Cheese, Costco Ajinomoto Tokyo Style Shoyu Ramen and Costco Autumn’s Gold Grain Free Granola Bars. 

I’m always on the hunt for items that make meal prep easier, especially ones that are reasonably healthy. Recently, I picked up the Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts to review!

Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts

Taste

I didn’t love the taste of the Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts. The chicken is very moist and tender, but tastes processed. It’s seasoned generously, but it’s very salty and there was something about the flavor that my taste buds didn’t love. It’s hard to describe – it was almost a sweet taste. I tried adding using these chicken breasts as the chicken in my Berry Salad using the Eat Smart Sweet Kale Salad Kit from Costco and they didn’t go well with the salad at all. They might be better in a sandwich or used for chicken burgers.

Cost

The Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts come in a two-pack, with five chicken breasts in each pack. The cost is Canadian $14.99 Canadian but I was able to snag these at $3.50 off. I think $14.99 is a little expensive to be honest but meat is usually never cheap.

Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts Ingredients

Convenience

You can eat these cold or heat them in the oven, the microwave or even on grill. They’re more convenient than cooking chicken from scratch and would be good for nights where you need a quick protein for dinner. They also seem like a good lunch option (like I said, I wondered if the flavor might work better in a sandwich or wrap or something). The best-before date is about a month from the date when I purchased the breasts. You can also extend their expiry date by freezing them.

Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts Nutrition

Nutrition

One chicken breast contains 120 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, 400 milligrams of sodium, one gram of carbohydrates and 23 grams of protein, so these chicken breasts are definitely a low calorie, low fat and high protein option! The sodium content is quite high though. The ingredients list is very short, which is nice. The chicken breasts are gluten-free.

The Pinty’s Oven Roasted Chicken Breasts were too salty and honestly just didn’t taste that great. They’re super convenient though! Despite being less convenient, I’d much rather buy a pack of the Costco Kirkland Signature Chicken Breasts, season them the way I like them and throw them in the oven.

  1. I really like the chicken breasts. They’re so handy. I use them in chicken Cesears, curries. Chicken burgers. I noticed they were on sale last week, really disappointed to find they didn’t have any at Kelowna store.

  2. I appreciate all the comments. In my mind, if you have to add ingredients to “mask the taste” of the chicken, that is enough of a reason to never eat these!

  3. I was not impressed with the oven roast chicken either. It actually ruined my dinner and had to order in. The taste and quality of the chicken did not agree with my taste buds. I returned it. Hope somebody will be more creative with this product.

  4. I have used these in chicken Caesar wraps, quesadillas, chicken salad sandwiches, and like them that way. Hubby likes it in sandwiches, sliced with BBQ sauce. If freezing them, you will want to still use them fairly quick, they get freezer burnt quickly, and I find it best to use paper towel and dry them a bit when thawed as there is a fair amount of moisture. I usually buy them when they go on sale for some quick easy meals.

  5. I make a chicken and wild rice casserole, or for any casserole I like using these because they are so moist. They taste like regular chicken to me, but have always had them hot. Nice to have in freezer for last minute meals.

  6. I use these as a salad option, Caesar or Greek. It’s a perfect addition and with the dressing, it masks the taste you were describing. Offers an excellent source of protein for the salad option. It’s a must buy in our household.

  7. I also snagged these on sale . True they have no taste of their own . I have added them to a salad ,
    Simmered them in chicken broth , sliced them up with peppers and onions for fajitas etc .
    They are so convenient and I feel better then grabbing fast food for lunch .
    I would recommend them .
