Frozen Dinner Favorites
Dinner for one.
Dinner for none.
Dinner for the lonely.
I was looking for something that didn't have too much bread in it, I'm not much of a bread person but some days I just want some good white bread and butter. This crust less pot pie is really decent for frozen meals. It has plenty of chicken and some good veggies in it. I think there is too much chicken and not enough veggies. I know the Atkins diet is all about protein and no carbs. I feel that some carbs are good, not too many, and too much protein can make you gassy and mess with your digestive system.
I have to admit, the chicken is lean and no hard spots, the veggies taste like veggies and over all it has alot of flavor. When I don't care for is the insane amount of sodium. Just over 1,000 mg of sodium, I need to drink more water. I would recommend this if you want a pot pie without the crust as a treat, but not a regular frozen dinner.
#2 Chicken Ranch Flat Bread Melt
This one I have once in awhile when I want a fast sand which. I noticed Lean Cuisine doesn't use alot of meat, too much veggies. At least the calories are within a good portion for a decent diet. This one has 370 calories and only 600 mg of sodium. This is nearly half of what the Atkins Crust less Chicken Pot Pie is!
It's okay in taste, about a 3 star, but the bread gets a bit soggy sometimes if you don't take it out of the microwave fast enough. I think it would be better in a toaster oven than the microwave. There could be more use of chicken but again or 370 calories, it's decent.
#3 Lean Cuisine Sesame Chicken
This photo is a realistic photo of what it really looks like.
This is what the box looks like. This one from a previous year of breast cancer awareness. The box makes the food look WAY better than it is.
I like the noodles, not too starchy and sticky. There could be more veggies in this meal. I think the manufacturer only puts in a couple of veggies. At times the chicken pieces are good or sometimes they're terrible. Once I found a gross piece that was not edible at all. I think that was caused by the old microwave. At work, where the microwave is within the last five years, it's decent.
I like that they don't add any extra preservatives in Lean Cuisine dinners. I am allergic to MSG and found I will break out in a rash from dinners with too much MSG.
