Broken: Chicken fingers ingredient description

Chickenfingers_1Anthony Coon writes in:

Printed directly on the front of this box of Italian style chicken fingers is the text - "Chicken Breast Strip Fritters Containing up to 20% Solution."

A 20% solution of what? I don't think I'd want to know...

[P.S. Happy Thanksgiving to all our American readers! Here's wishing you a delicious turkey dinner with less than 20% solution. -mh]


Because everyone knows chicken is soluble...

Or maybe they have 20% of a solution telling you how to fix broken things.

You are misreading it. It contains 20% of the solution to your Thanksgiving meal problems. :)

They're just trying to tell you it's nearly three times as tasty as the chicken that Sherlock Holmes sells.

A little late on this one. If anyone really cares, they mean a saline/flavor solution injected into the chicken. Sort of an industrial marinade/basting. It mostly makes the meat more juicy and flavorful, but it also increases the weight (which you pay for) and the salt content. Some people don't like that.
