Why ITC Master Chef Chicken Nuggets is our Top Pick:

You eat with your eyes first, and we totally believe in that. ITC Master Chef Chicken Nuggets look fresh as soone pack. The nuggets are shaped in small traingles, and not crumbly or limp – a common problem with a lot of frozen foods items.

People often complain that Chicken Nuggets are tastless and rubbery. That’s not the case with ITC Master Chef Chicken Nuggets, here you actually taste moist, juicy chicken inside.

We liked the delicate seasoning in these nuggets. This allows you to enjoy the nuggets as is, and you also have the option of eating these along with any dip of your choice. We sampled the nuggets with a chinese-style chilli-garlic dipping sauce and also a homemade desi hari-chutney. In both cases, we found the nuggets to pair equally well.

As compared to all other brands reviewed, ITC Master Chef Chicken Nuggets had the best chicken to batter ratio. You get a crisp exterior, along with a lot of chicken in every bite.

Who This Is For?

Chicken nuggets have become a famous treat for kids all thanks to its meaty taste along with its juicy outer covering, which has a certain crunchy texture that blends in very well with the overall chunky character of the nugget. In short, this review can benefit anyone who is looking to cook that perfect-tasting batch of chicken nuggets. 

Our Process – The Factors That We Were Looking For

The factors upon which we based our test are listed below: 

Shapes And Size: Probably the first thing you notice before eating anything is its shape and size. While the shape of the chicken nugget can vary, and does change across brands, the size usually allows for a couple of bites from each piece. You don’t want the nuggets to be as large as, say a patty, but large enough to get a couple of chunky bites in.

Appearance: This factor is especially important for frozen snacks, which are typically meant as party snacks or special-occasion treats. You want them to look appetizing, fresh, not stale, dull, off-color.

Balance: For the tasting of nuggets, the subtle balance between the crispy covering and the moist inside must also be perfectly maintained, as it tends to maximize the taste of the nuggets. 

Taste: All of the above mentioned would be rendered completely useless if its overall taste is not satisfactory, hence how the nuggets tasted was the ultimate equalizer for our review.

Result Of Our Taste Test

The result for our taste test was derived after considering various other factors as well. One such factor included the packaging. Both Godrej Yummiez and Swiss Chicken Nuggets come in resealable packs, which is a user-friendly feature. However, when it came to taste, we found both Godrej Yummiez and Swiss Chicken Nuggets lacking the balance in taste. Godrej Yummiez was too salty, whereas Swiss Chicken Nuggets was overloaded with a jeera flavoring. Godrej Yummies also seemed to have the least amount of chicken inside. Venky’s tasted bland, and you couldn’t tell if it was chicken or anything else you were tasting. ITC Masterchef’s Crunchy Chicken Nuggets, on the other hand, had a balance of both crunchiness and chunkiness, making every bite nice and delicious. The chicken was nice and juicy, and the exterior was crunchy enough to bring in a play of textures. It cooked well, tasted and looked the best in the final presentation – making it our Top Pick.

Brands Shape Appearance Flavor Notes
  Godrej Yummiez   Medallion shape   Flat, dull   Salty, dry chicken from inside Less chicken as compared to others
  ITC Masterchef   Triangular shape Looked fresh, plump and thick Moist from inside, flavorful, nice and crunchy The nuggets were consistent in shape and size.
    Swiss Naturen   Shaped more like pakoras Orangish due to masalas, lots of zeera on top, plump and thick Could taste too much zeera. Has quality chicken and filling is good Had the thickest breading, looked moist and fresh
    Venky’s     Medallion shape     Orangish     Juicy from inside, but flat in taste Had the same shape as Yummiez, could have had more chicken inside
