Lean Cuisine Lemongrass Chicken Review

Lean Cuisine Lemongrass ChickenLean Cuisine's Lemongrass Chicken has "roasted chicken tenderloins in a lemongrass coconut sauce served over brown rice with broccoli,carrots,baby corn and yellow carrots." It certainly sounds tempting, and so I picked up a box.

The lemongrass-coconut sauce was delicious and made the whole entree come together. I could really taste that coconut milk flavor which not only worked well with the chicken, but also brought an especially wonderful extra dimension to the brown rice. That rice had a reliable, nutty texture. The vegetables also turned out well, and I was excited to see baby corn in the mix. I wouldn't necessarily call this entree authentic Thai cuisine, but it does incorporate some of the best Thai flavors into the healthy style of Lean Cuisine.

The Lean Cuisine Lemongrass Chicken entree has 240 calories and 6 grams of total fat. Unfortunately, 3.5 grams of that fat is saturated, which equals a whopping 18% of the daily value. Compared to what you would expect from a restaurant, this amount of saturated fat is low, but compared to other meals by Lean Cuisine, this value may be on the higher end of the spectrum. There are 25 milligrams of cholesterol (8% DV), 600 milligrams of sodium (25% DV), 17 grams of protein and 30 grams of carbohydrates, 4 grams of which are dietary fiber and 4 grams of which are sugars. This entree also packs in 40% of the recommended daily amount for vitamin A and 30% for vitamin C..

I paid $2.20 for this meal at Kroger. Eating this meal is a better deal than restaurant fare both financially and nutritionally with all those vegetables. The tastes and textures in this entree are light and fresh and do a good job incorporating some Asian flavor into the meal. I will be buying this frozen meal again in the future.
