I love whenever I find ready made food that I can just pop in the microwave or oven for dinner on those nights when I don’t really feel like cooking.
Today I’m going to share with you guys something I found when buying groceries via Instacart.
I bought the Kroger fried chicken to eat for dinner and today I’m going to dive into whether it’s worth the buy.
I tried Kroger fried chicken – review | Food
So on Instacart the Kroger fried chicken is listed as the Home Chef Fried Chicken.
It cost $7.99 for 8 pieces. It was a mixture of drumsticks, whole wings, and thighs. I received 2 thighs, 2 wings, and 4 drumsticks.
How I warmed up the Kroger Fried Chicken
My Instacart order was delivered to me around 2:30pm and I put the chicken in the fridge until around 6 pm. I heated it up in the oven on 385 degrees for about 13 minutes.
You do have the option of warming it up in the microwave, but I preferred to heat up via the oven because I figured it’d taste fresher and like it just came out of the fryer.
The chicken smelled really good as it was cooking. I know my kitchen smelled a bit like fried chicken, but it wasn’t overpowering or anything.
The taste of Kroger Fried Chicken
The chicken tasted decent.
I will say I like the smaller pieces of fried chicken versus the bigger pieces.
I feel like the smaller pieces were a bit more flavorful whereas in the bigger pieces… the white meat had a lighter flavor of the seasoning that was used.
I absolutely loved the skin. It tasted so good. It honestly wasn’t crispy though. It actually was kind of soft to tear off of the white meat of the chicken, but I didn’t mind it.
I ate the fried chicken with a Dole Chopped Kit in Buffalo Ranch. It was pretty much a salad kit with buffalo ranch dressing as well as cucumbers and tomatoes.
The fried chicken definitely complimented the salad.
Do I recommend Kroger fried chicken?
The fried chicken from Kroger is a good buy especially if you’re in the mood for fried chicken, but you don’t feel like making it yourself or spending a lot of money.
It’s affordable and convenient. Whether you want to head to Kroger yourself or get it delivered via Instacart it’s a great option.
