Frozen Friday: Healthy Choice - Turkey and Sweet Potatoes

Part of Healthy Choice's Top Chef inspired line of frozen dinners, Honey-Glazed Turkey and Sweet Potatoes features turkey medallions, roasted sweet potatoes, green beans, wild rice, and onions with a honey pepper glaze.

These are normally $4.29 at a local supermarket, but I nabbed it on sale for $2. The box highlights 9g of whole grain, 14g of protein, and 250 calories.

I have to say I'm quite enjoying these frozen meals with different preparations of sweet potatoes; they're all different but quite tasty.

I mostly liked this one, except for one little thing... I didn't really care for the honey pepper glaze; maybe it was the amount of sauce but it was a tad too sweet for my liking and gave me a little bit of a dessert-rather-than-savory-dinner feeling. Fortunately, this is one of Healthy Choice's steam basket meals where the food and the sauce are separate during cooking and you can use as much, or as little, of the honey glaze as you want.

I liked the way everything turned out. The turkey might look a little dry but was moist. The green beans were cooked just right and not too soft. The sweet potatoes were nice and tender. The wild rice was a bit fibrous, but adds some texture to the dish. I didn't really notice the onions.

Overall, it's a enjoyable mix of ingredients and makes for some good eats. I'm curious to see if it would be better with a more savory but light sauce, but Healthy Choice's Honey-Glazed Turkey and Sweet Potatoes is still good as is.

    this is the first frozen meal I've seen that looks evenly vaguely like the photo on the package.

  2. I've seen a couple others, usually the more expensive ones are closest... but I agree this one looks pretty accurate.
