Lean Cuisine Fajita-Style Chicken Spring Rolls

We have done MANY Lean Cuisine reviews, but LC is one company that's constantly adding new products & improving existing ones. Recently, the company let me know about the Lean Cuisine Fajita-Style Chicken Spring Rolls, and I was really stoked to review it. The description reads, "white meat" chipotle chicken,corn,black beans,bell peppers and onions.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 3 spring rolls (113 grams)
Calories: 200
Total Fat: 7 grams, 11%
Saturated Fat: 1.5 grams, 7%
Sodium: 5800 mg, 24%
Carbohydrates: 20 grams
Fiber: 2 grams, 8%
Sugar: 3 grams
Protein: 15 grams

Let me tell you, when this first comes out of the microwave, the ends of the spring rolls are not a pretty sight of chicken, corn and onions. Instead it's like a blackened, congealed mass, and after microwaving, there are some oily patches on the "crisping sleeve". Nevertheless, if it's one thing I've learned - it's that sometimes the most unappetizing looking products taste the best (just check out Tasty Bite Madras Lentils Review). So I bit into a roll and was rewarded with a delicious, crispy, spring roll. I could taste the different textures of crunchy corn & chicken (which really didn't have a taste). It wasn't very spicy, but the more you eat, the more the spiciness comes out. Overall, I liked the taste BUT there is no way 1 serving is going to be a filling lunch or dinner. It's either eat both servings (2 serving come in a box) or pair 1 serving with something like Amy's Organic Fire Roasted Southwestern Vegetable Soup.

Each serving of 3 Lean Cuisine Fajita-Style Chicken Spring Rolls provides 200 calories, 7 grams of total fat, 1.5 grams of which is saturated (11% and 7% of the daily value), 580 mg of sodium (24% of the DV), 2 grams of fiber, 3 grams of sugars and 15 grams of protein. The ingredients list isn't too lengthy and has mostly recognizable ingredients.

I received sample of Lean Cuisine Fajita-Style Chicken Spring Rolls but they are widely available in the supermarket aisle, and it's usually on sale - anywhere from 2 or 3 for $10.00 I would buy this again, but definitely not to eat by itself. Similar products that are just as tasty include Trader Joe's Lemongrass Chicken Stix and Kahiki Naturals Vegetable Egg Rolls.
