Frozen Friday: Healthy Choice - Oven Roasted Chicken

Healthy Choice's Oven Roasted Chicken frozen meal features chicken tenderloins in a homestyle gravy, whipped potatoes, green beans, carrots, and peach dessert.

An 11.4-ounce box retails for about $3.99.

The chicken pieces were tender with a good flavor. They came in a mushroom gravy with sizable pieces of mushroom; it's a nice change-up from the typical brown or chicken gravy, but might not go over well if you don't care for mushrooms. The consistency of the gravy could have stood some thickening though; it was rather watery.

The potatoes were pretty standard for frozen food with an even, smooth texture. You get less of it than in other meals, but this is Healthy Choice and they keep it down to 240 calories total for the whole meal.

The carrots and green beans were maybe very lightly salted. They retained a decent amount of firmness and were pretty plain.

The peach dessert is just diced peaches in a sweet syrup. It's not too sweet, but wasn't terribly peachy either.

Overall, Healthy Choice's Oven Roasted Chicken is not a bad frozen meal choice. The chicken and gravy are pretty good and everything else was fairly decent.
