Lean Cuisine Roasted Honey Chicken Review

Lean Cuisine Roasted Honey ChickenIt's been quite a long time since I've had any frozen meals for lunch, but since March is National Frozen Food Month (go figure), I decided that I would buy a few Lean Cuisine meals that I hadn't tried yet, and have them for lunch. Lean Cuisine Roasted Honey Chicken is described as, "Roasted chicken in a sweet honey sauce with snap peas, yellow beans and whole wheat pilaf", which sounds simple enough - like one of those basic meals that shouldn't be hard to mess up - so I bought it for $2.50 (on sale).

This meal tastes surprisingly similar to Lean Cuisine Apple Cranberry Chicken. I think it might be because of the sauce - because no matter what the description they used, all I can say is that it's sweet and it does add a delicious touch that ties all the ingredients together. There's not much else to say about this as it is essentially chicken & rice (or rather orzo), with some vegetables like snap peas, carrots and there is even some wheat berries in this - the combination resulted in a nice texture of this dish.

Each Lean Cuisine Roasted Honey Chicken entree provides 280 calories, a low 6% of the daily value for total fat (5% of the DV for saturated fat), 25% of the DV for sodium, 5 grams of fiber and 18 grams of sugars as well as protein. The ingredients list starts with whole wheat orzo pasta & cooked white meat chicken, but becomes a little complex after that.

Overall, I liked the flavor of this dish, which I thought was very similar to Lean Cuisine Apple Cranberry Chicken. So you could save some grams of sugar and 20 calories by choosing this one instead.
