Great Value Frozen Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Do anyone know if these are gluten free?? I am finding mixed answers online.

I don't know the answer because I'm not familiar with the brand, but I'm wondering if they are just chicken breasts, what could be in them that could contain gluten? I haven't been doing this long and most of the time I buy my chicken fresh, but I'd like to know for future reference what to look out for. Thanks and I hope you get you answer. Sometimes writing the company that makes them is the only way to know for sure.

Great Value? Is that the WalMart brand? I have an unopened pack in my freezer. I have Meijer brand that I am eating now and they are delicious and give me no reaction.

If there is broth listed do call the company and ask. If the chicken is just chicken with no broth added it should be fine. I usually get fresh chicken and freeze at home. If you buy a large package you can freeze the pieces on a cookie sheet and then once frozen you can repackage into a freezer bag and they won't stick together. That way you have the convience of being able to just grab a breast without worrying what may have been used on the processed ones that are prefrozen.

That is good info! I usually buy the big fresh packs of meat and freeze two or three in quart size freezer bags, but your way would cut down on the number of ziplocs used.

I've never ever found a raw poultry that had gluten, even the ones that list broth.

Great Value is the Walmart brand & they are dipped in broth. I had been buying it till a friend pointed it out (thank goodness for good friends!). I wrote to Walmart & they would not give a straight forward yes or no answer so I quit buying it and now just stick with fresh and freeze it myself.

I've been buying the Great Value Chicken breasts for years, before and after going gluten free. I have never experienced a reaction from these. The only complaint I have about them is that sometimes you will get tiny pieces and other times maybe 2 huge pieces and a bunch of little pieces. I still buy them because they are handy to have in the freezer.

I have recently bought the freah chicken breasts from Target and I must say they are delicious. They are all the same size and seem very tender and tasty. We can really tell a difference between those and the Great Value brand. They are 9.00 for 6 pieces and sometimes we just have to go with the less expensive brand.

That's good to know. I just had a concern about the broth the chicken is dipped in and couldn't get a good answer on it. They are so convenient & easy to find especially while traveling so I may push for an answer.
