Default The Bo Jangles challenge

So I have a simple challenge for THT members...

Who can be the first one to find out if Bo Jangles "Chicken Bites" are White meat or dark meat.

We recently asked at two different Bo Jangles drive through windows whether the chicken bites were made from white meat or dark meat. After being told they were chicken bites repeatedly we received the same exact answer at both locations. "They aren't white or dark, they are chicken".

Bonus points to anyone who Youtubes the conversation with the drive through employee and posts it up. I suspect this could potentially go viral. LOL

I've had the bites a few times. They are solid pieces of chicken, but are very much bits and pieces from everywhere on the bird. From the processing side, basically the left overs from all the "boneless skinless" cuts you see in the freezer section. Almost positive they are pulling their meat from Pilgrims Pride in Sanford. Distributed through Pate Dawson, also in Sanford. Likely ship into the stores essentially cooked sous vide in big plastic bags, and then get dumped into serving warmers.

The only chicken bites they have are Rosted Chicken Bites. If you talking about chicken fingers they are whole white meat.

Roasted Chicken Bites are produced fully cooked & IQF using thigh meat. Sous Vide would be cost prohibitive. Bojangles has moved their distribution to McLane, the supplier likely has not changed.

There are no Bo Jangles chicken joints around here which I find interesting seeing as how I live in LA and they have "Cajun" fillets.

Anyway, if they're "nuggets" and not strips, the answer to your question, white or dark, is; All 3. For nuggets, the process is - lightly boil the chicken, bones and all. Throw the whole gooey mesh in a centrifuge and spin to release EVERYTHING from the bones. Remove the bones, puree what's left, smash it into chunks and call it a "nugget". So, it's dark, white, and everything else.

I will NOT eat nuggets anywhere. I want strips.
