Lean Cuisine Thai Style Chicken

Lean Cuisine Thai Style Chicken is described as, "roasted chicken tenderloins in a creamy Thai-style sauce with rice." It's part of the "Cafe Cuisine" line of LC - which they say delivers ... bold dishes which bring together premium meats, farm-picked veggies and gourmet sauces for delicious flavor in every forkful.

NUTRITION FACTS

After following the really complicated directions - "microwave for 4 minutes and 30 seconds" - I got a a meal with the chicken swimming in so much sauce that it's hidden. But once you coax it out with a fork, you'll find 4 or 5 large pieces of tender meat. The sauce itself is a typical creamy & slightly sweet Thai sauce, which went well with the chicken and the rice. But for my tastes, the rice was a bit too mushy, or maybe that's what the Thai style is like. Still, overall, I enjoyed this entree for lunch, although not as much as the Weight Watchers Smart Ones Thai Style Chicken & Rice Noodles (Review).

Each Lean Cuisine Thai Style Chicken entree (255 grams) provides 260 calories, 4 grams of total fat, 1 gram of which is saturated (6% and 5% of the daily value), 540 mg sodium (22% of the DV), no fiber, 9 grams of sugars and 21 grams of protein.The ingredients list is fairly typical, starting with blanched enriched long grain paraboiled rice.

I purchased a box of the Lean Cuisine Thai Style Chicken for $2.50 and at that price, I would buy it again. Although I wasn't wowed by this one, it wasn't too bad - just felt like it was missing something - maybe a little hot pepper sauce to make it a little more spicy.
