Frozen Friday: Healthy Choice - Sundried Tomato Chicken

 Healthy Choice's Sundried Tomato Chicken frozen meal is one of their new microwavable steaming entrees and features chicken tenderloins, whole grain pasta, broccoli, and mushrooms in a sun-dried tomato garlic sauce.

One 8.75-ounce box will net you 320 calories and cost you around $2.99 or less if on sale.

The flavors out of this one were a bit plain and fairly muted.
Apparently sun-dried tomatoes keep the fruit's nutritional value. The sauce was tomato-y but didn't cling to the pasta very well and didn't add to much flavor. I think a little more added seasoning like pepper or herbs would have helped.

The chicken was tender and the broccoli and mushrooms were overcooked and a bit mushy.
The end result was a little "meh" for me. I guess you get a good amount of nutrition though, with relatively little in the way of fat, sodium, but also, flavor.

  1. It appears that it would be easy to replicate that meal and also easy to add/subtract ingredients.

    Oh, I revel in the vittle reviews but the concoctions reviewed could also be used as a "recipe" for creating one's own grub.

    Lately, I have taken to adding various spices to various foodstuffs and find myself buying far fewer pre-created meals; replacing those with visiting a few nifty-keen Web sites such ash as Brand Eating as a substitute to spending money out of curiosity in regards to pre-prepared often rather costly vittles at the local Wal-Mart and Food-4-Less.

    The requirement to decrease grub expenditures to the maximum possible has led to my concocting my own so-often blase' sub-par creations but I am trying and, with practice, or the acquisition of a cooking-enabled female to allow a meager existence within the shanty, I may eventually be able to shovel in tasty yet healthy grub that meets my dietary restrictions.

    Sadly, finding a female with at least an average intelligence level who is trustworthy and doesn't come with a cell phone permanently attached to her vacuous head is a tough find.

  2. I always have problem with microwave meal sauces sticking to their pastas, all brands. I wonder why! It's always so disappointing.
