Michelina's Lean Gourmet cost just $1.00 a few years ago when I first reviewed them, and imagine my surprise looking over the selection in the frozen food aisle, seeing that they still cost $1.00. And they are (supposed to be) a healthier alternative. I decided to try out their Chicken Club FlatBread.
This was a decent "flat sandwich" - but let's face it Michelina's, it cannot be folded in two as pictured on the box. One it would be way too messy and the sticky cheese is everywhere and the toppings are also a bit of a mess. But that doesn't mean it wasn't good. The bread is thick and really the star of the show. It's the type of bread you tear off big chunks off and eat. And yeah - there was chicken and a smattering of what looks like bits of bacon (but didn't really taste like it) and lots of cheese as I said before.
Each Michelina's Lean Gourmet Chicken Club FlatBread meal provides 290 calories, 8 grams of total fat, 2.5 grams of which is saturated (12% and 13% of the daily value), 750 mg sodium (31%), 2 grams of fiber, 4 grams of sugars and 15 grams of protein.
Michelina's Lean Gourmet Chicken Club FlatBread is certainly worth the price ($1.00) and this can certainly be part of a filling lunch - I had a huge salad with it as well and I was good for a few hours. The sodium content is on the high side, so note that if you're monitoring this.My favorite MLC prodcts though are still Michelina's Lean Gourmet Three Cheese Chicken and Michelinas Lean Gourmet Vegetable Rice Pilaf.
