Frozen Friday: Stouffer's - Farmer's Harvest Chicken Fettucini Alfredo

From Stouffer's Farmer's Harvest line (so called because they feature ingredients like olive oil, sea salt or whole grains), Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo with a Vegetable Medley comes with a main dish of grilled white meat chicken and fettuccini in a creamy Alfredo sauce (Parmesan cheese and butter sauce). On the side there's a vegetable mix of broccoli, carrots, and grilled red peppers.

These are available at my local supermarket for $3.99 or around $2 to $2.50 on sale.

The chicken was pretty good; tender and juicy with sizable chunks. The grill marks are a nice visual touch.
There's a bit too much sauce for my liking; it's less a coat on the noodles and more a bath. It's a bit plain and could use some seasoning for nuance but is pretty average as far as Alfredo sauces go. The noodles were pretty soft; I like them a bit firmer.
The vegetable medley was on the overcooked side. While there's a nice blend of veggies, they're a bit mushy.
Overall, this one was a bit average for me. There are more tried and true Stouffer dinners that they do a much better job on. This one was kinda "meh."

  1. I have heated and shoveled in Stouffer's Fettuccini Alfredo (FA) concoction from their offering that consists ONLY of the noodles and sauce and comes in the plastic bag that can be micro-waved or boiled in water.

    I haven't had it for a long time but back in the days before food prices reached today's sky-high levels when compared to REAL income/buying ability levels I bought the noodle/sauce offering semi-regularly.

    I would often plop the heated stuff atop a burger patty.

    I thought the stuff was yummy!!!!

    Mom's husband, a wealthy dude I refused to cater to just to be in the presence of his FAR superior socio-economic status I was mired within (and still am) typically ate outside the home and went to the "finer" expensive eatin' joints I could never afford.

    In his opinion the 9FA0 of noodles and sauce only was equal to or even better than many of the offerings of (FA) to be obtained at even the high-falutin' eating places.

    His opinion included mention that many of the restaurant he ate at would do well to just heat and serve Stouffer's noodles/sauce  and serve that rather than have on-site cooks bother with making their own sub-par glop.

    I can not attest to that nor as to the good and/or bad of the reviewed stuff but if the "original" FA I reveled in is the same glop I suggest trying it.
