I enjoy eating Chinese food, but it is definitely not very healthful with all the oil and salt they use. Frozen Asian-inspired meals like this Weight Watchers Smart Ones Chicken Oriental are a great alternative to restaurant fare. Even though frozen food can be hit or miss, this one was pretty good to me.
This meal seems pretty standard: rice, chicken, veggies, and sauce. The quality of the rice and chicken was good, and the sauce covered the food in just the right amount with a nice mix of sweet and salty that was reminiscent of a Chinese restaurant but less oily. The vegetables included the typical carrots, celery, and bell peppers, but I was surprised and pleased to also see water chestnuts, bean sprouts, and spinach. Each component delivered and really made this meal delicious.
Each package of Weight Watchers Smart Ones Chicken Oriental provides 230 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat (2% of the daily value), none of which is saturated fat, 700 milligrams of sodium (29% of the DV), 14 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber (8% of the DV) and 5 grams of sugars.
I paid $1.75 for this meal at Target while it was on sale, which is a very reasonable price. I've had some mediocre experiences with the Weight Watchers Smart Ones, but this meal, despite it being a little high in sodium, is one that I will buy again in the future.
