Frozen Friday: Healthy Choice - Roasted Chicken Verde

Healthy Choice's new Roasted Chicken Verde is another one of their steam cooking frozen dinner and are marketed as being ideal for lunch. The meal consists of sliced chicken tenderloins, whole grain rice, sweet corn, red and poblano peppers in a cilantro lime sauce.

A 8.6-ounce package costs about $2.99 or about $2 on sale.

I have to say, I'm enjoying these new Healthy Choice lunch steamers. They're super easy to cook (just pop it in and set the time) and offer a novel change from the more run-of-the-mill traditional entrées.
The Roasted Chicken Verde reminds me a bit of the flavors at Chipotle especially with the cilantro lime sauce that very reminiscent of Chipotle's cilantro lime rice. The rice looked a bit soggy but actually turned out okay.

The chicken was tender enough and the corn and peppers provided a lot of flavor as well as crisp, contrasting textures. The peppers also provided a good kick. I really enjoyed this one. My favorite so far out of Healthy Choice lunch steamers (Granted I've only tried two so far).
As a bonus, each entree is only 240 calories and 3.5 grams of fat in case you're counting.

  2. The rice looked a bit soggy but turned out actually turned out okay.
