Add this high-protein chicken appetizer to your game plan.

  • February 12, 2019

Crispy, flavorful Tyson® Chicken TwistsTM are tender, marinated chicken breast strips coated with crunchy breading, delivered in unique, fun and snackable shapes. With a bold taste and 12 grams of protein per serving, they deliver an innovative and versatile menu selection that can be served as an appetizer, small plate, entrée topper or side. Chicken Twists bake in 9 to 11 minutes or fry in 3 minutes, helping operators save time and reduce labor with the high speed of prep to table.

Chicken Twists are available in two delicious lightly coated varieties. Pretzel Chicken Twists have tender white-meat chicken on the inside with a crunchy, sweet pretzel exterior, and Homestyle Chicken Twists (available at select OpCos) have a traditional homemade-style golden crisp crust surrounding tender, juicy white-meat chicken.
