All-in-one chicken veggie nuggets
is bringing breakthrough innovation to America’s beloved chicken nugget with the launch of all-in-one Chicken Veggie Nuggets and Chicken Veggie Tenders. Made from 100% white meat chicken raised without antibiotics or hormones, the nuggets are blended with finely chopped farm-grown broccoli, carrots, white beans, and potatoes.

“Time, taste, and health are the three things that every busy family needs more of,” says co-founder Dave Peters. “Our new Chicken Veggie Nuggets and Tenders solve all three of these challenges by providing the same taste and texture of traditional chicken nuggets and tenders together with important veggie nutrition. Everyone in the family will love the crunchy, gluten-free breading on the outside and the moist, flavorful, and firm blend of chicken and veggies on the inside.”

Chicken Veggie Nuggets Original Recipe and Chicken Veggie Tenders with Ancient Grain Breading provide 10 grams of protein and are a good source of vitamins A, C, and K. They are available at grocers nationwide for a suggested retail price of $5.49.

Single-ingredient legume pastas
Inspired by the growing interest in plant-based nutrition, Barilla has launched a line of one-ingredient legume pastas. Made with just chickpeas or red lentils, the pastas promise a deliciously unique taste and “al dente” texture, along with the nutritional benefits of legumes.

“At Barilla, we only have one way of doing business: ‘Good for You, Good for the Planet’,” says Jean-Pierre Comte, president of Barilla Americas. “This means constantly innovating and improving our products to provide people with high-quality foods that are healthy, sourced from responsible supply chains, and inspired by the Italian lifestyle and Mediterranean diet.”

The legume pastas are available in four varieties: Red Lentil Rotini, Red Lentil Penne, Chickpea Rotini, and Chickpea Casarecce—all of which are certified gluten-free and Non-GMO Project Verified. The pastas retail for $2.99 each and can be found at select retailers nationwide.
