Today's Frozen Meal: Healthy Choice Roasted Sesame Chicken
Wednesday, 2010 July 14 - 4:52 pm
"Chicken Tenderloins in Roasted Sesame Sauce, Brown Rice, Vegetables & Gingersnap Peach Crisp". Wait, so the sesame is what's roasted, not the chicken?

Box

Meal

Yes, some carrots found their way into the dessert. I suppose the box does say "Vegetables & Gingersnap Peach Crisp", but usually the lack of the serial comma isn't quite so literal.

Taste: It smells very sesame-y coming out of the microwave, which is promising. Unfortunately the flavor doesn't quite live up to that; it has a generic salty Chinese-style brown sauce that's not awful, but not very memorable either. The brown rice is a mushy, bland mess. The vegetables are steamed and minimally seasoned, as usual. The dessert is a bit of a change: it's quite strong with ginger flavor. I'm not sure the peach-ginger combination really works, but at least it's different. Score: 2.5/5.0

Nutrition

Nutrition: Another winner: high in a bunch of vitamins, and a solid 5 grams of fiber; just 6 grams of fat. Score: 3.0/3.0

Packaging: Requires cutting the film, and stirring midway through cooking. And of course there's the wandering carrot fiasco. Score: 1.0/2.0

Total Score: 6.5/10.0
