Frozen Friday: T.G.I.Friday's - Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo

T.G.I.Friday's Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo is a cook-in-the-bag frozen entree featuring blackened white meat chicken, ciufetti pasta, red peppers and green onions tossed in creamy cajun-style Alfredo sauce.

It's normally around $4.00 for a 12-ounce bag but you can pick it up on sale around $2 to $2.50.

For when you don't even want to bother with opening a box, the steam bag let's you just pop the bag in the microwave and set the time. It really can't get much easier than that.

For this one, it looks like special care has to be taken to adhere to the "This end up" instruction on the bag. I haphazardly pulled it out of the microwave and there was some leakage from the bag's vent (I think).
This is like Alfredo plus for me; it's Alfredo with a seasoned kick. The heat is enough that you might want to avoid it if you can't stand spicy but I like it.

The chicken seemed to carry much of the heat and fairly tender. The peppers weren't that noticeable taste wise but they add a bit of texture. There was a little bit too much Alfredo sauce, but that often seems the case with frozen food. The pasta was pretty soft but not mushy or anything like that.

Overall, I T.G.I. Friday's Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo entree was pretty good. The quality is standard for frozen food but the seasoning and spiciness keep it interesting.

  2. "Carbs - 57g"Sniff.  Sob.  Display "boo-boo lip" and general pouting behaviors.I would revel in buying the stuff (when on sale) and giving it a try but as with my beloved BIG chimichangas regularly priced at a buck each at the grocery store I stand and drool with thoughts of that chimichanga well-covered with various additives (cheese, veggies, various sauces, chili, either one or several various toppings) and eagerly eating.Quick, easy and filling.I betcha' it would be easy to add extra goodies after opening the nuked fare in the review... either cold or heated before adding, depending upon how one prefers the added condiment(s).But, elder life has forced me to look at and shun excess carbs.Sniff.
