Health benefits

Tyson’s popcorn chicken is a delicious, easy-to-use snack that can add health benefits to your diet.

  • It’s made with 100% all-natural, antibiotic-free white meat chicken breast and contains no artificial flavors or preservatives. It also has zero grams of trans fat and no cholesterol.
  • Popcorn chicken is a great source of protein, which makes it perfect for athletes or those who are trying to build muscle mass. It contains about 16 grams per serving, which is about half of what most people need every day. Tyson’s recipe also uses only whole wheat flour for the batter and cooking oil instead of butter or other oils that can be high in saturated fats.
  • In addition to being loaded with protein, popcorn chicken has plenty of fiber from the whole wheat flour used in the batter and vegetables like carrots and celery that are added to the mix during preparation. Fiber helps keep you regular by total waste through your digestive tract faster than it would on its own so that waste doesn’t sit around in your intestines, causing discomfort or bloating over time (like gas).
