Frozen Friday: Jimmy Dean Delights - Golden Roasted Turkey

Jimmy Dean Delights Golden Roasted Turkey frozen meal features a bowl of sliced roasted turkey, cubed carrots and potatoes, and diced celery in a creamy herb sauce.

An 8-oz box was $1.49 on sale.

Delights is Jimmy Dean's line of low-calorie items. This one comes in at a lean 210 calories.

The Golden Roasted Turkey meal basically looks like the inside of a pot pie minus the crust.

The potatoes, carrots, and celery strike a nice balance between firm and soft; usually veggies tend to be too soft in frozen meals but these turned out rather nicely in texture as well as taste.

Likewise, the turkey is also pretty tender with a nice flavor to it. There's only about four or five small slices but they were good.

The sauce is rather light and not very herby but it provides a savory creaminess that underpins the dish. It also has a nice, thick consistency that adheres well to the rest of the dish.

Overall, Jimmy Dean Delights Golden Roasted Turkey turned out really well. I especially liked how the veggies and turkey turned out although I imagine some might prefer a bolder sauce.
