Lean Cuisine Chicken Club Panini

As the temperatures dip here in the North-east, and winter practically banging on our doorstep, it's time for me to seek solace in my favorite cold weather lunch - the soup & panini sandwich combo. I have a panini maker at home, and there are a few brands of frozen panini's that I really enjoy - like Lean Cuisine Chicken Spinach and Mushrooms Panini and Healthy Choice Tomato Basil & Mozzarella Panini. I decided to buy a few I hadn't tried before, hoping to add a few new favorites to my list. The first one I tried was the Lean Cuisine Chicken Club Panini.

This is described on the packaging as, "white meat chicken with crumbled bacon, tomatoes, cheese & ranch style sauce on sourdough bread." After a few minutes in the microwave, and another few impatient minutes to let it cool a little, I took a bite. This was not bad at all. Lots of cheese & chicken, but I really didn't taste any bacon - although I saw a few red bits on the sandwich (could have been tomato or bacon). I did taste the sauce, which wasn't overpowering, but added a delightful finish to the experience.

My lunch-time reading material was the nutrition facts on the back of the box. Each sandwich provides 360 calories, 9 grams of total fat, 3.5 grams of which is saturated fat (14% and 18% of the daily value), 680 mg of sodium, 16% of the DV for fiber, 24 grams of protein and 7 grams of sugars.

Lean Cuisine meals are on sale very often at my local grocery store, and I paid $2.50 for the box of Lean Cuisine Chicken Club Panini that I purchased. Although I wasn't exactly wowed by this Lean Cuisine Panini, it was still okay and I would buy it again - I certainly enjoyed it more than the Lean Cuisine Philly Style Steak & Cheese Panini, but preferred the Lean Cuisine Chicken Spinach and Mushrooms Panini.
