Lean Cuisine describes this Spa Cuisine Classic meal as "roasted chicken tenderloins in a savory pecan sauce, with sanp peas & brown rice." From the picture on the box, this Lean Cuisine Chicken Pecan entree appears only moderately enticing. Don't let that fool you though, I thought it was actually quite satisfying.
The chicken was cut into pieces that were a bit larger than bite size and had a decent texture. The brown sauce seemed potentially bland at first glance, but it brought a lot of flavor to the chicken and to the rice. The brown rice had a good texture, and I liked the vegetables mixed in, especially the fresh-tasting snow peas. The small pecan pieces mixed with the food were an excellent addition to the meal. This was like a standout blockbuster meal, but more like a quiet, familiar, good tasting standby that will never let you down.

I paid $2.20 for this frozen dish at Kroger. I found it to be a well balanced meal with good amounts of protein and fiber. It had good flavor and was quite filling too. I would definitely purchase this Lean Cuisine entree again.
