Today's Frozen Meal: Hungry Man Classic Fried Chicken
Friday, 2010 December 24 - 1:40 pm
"Tender white and dark chicken with home-style mashed potatoes and sweet corn - includes a chocolate brownie." One pound of food. It's a Christmas miracle.

Box

Meal

Meal

The cooking process involves taking out the brownie midway through, so that's why it looks like there's a lump of poo on a plate there. Hey look; it even has corn in it.

Taste: Well, it's honest-to-God real fried chicken. The chicken is moist and tender. The breading is a bit soggy in spots, but that's to be expected coming out of the microwave. Some parts of the chicken are scalding hot, while others are cold; I'm surprised the directions didn't call for flipping and rotating the chicken pieces during cooking. The corn is firm and buttery, but it very much has a canned flavor to it. The potatoes aren't good; they're whipped and reconstituted potatoes. The brownie is a bit dry, like what you'd get from an Easy Bake Oven.

It's a pound of food, which sounds like a lot. But minus the bones, it's just over 400 grams of edible portion, which isn't much more than some other frozen entrees I've had this year. The difference is that there's no empty water weight in this meal: it's largely fat. It will leave you gut-bustingly full.

Score: 3.0/5.0

Nutrition

Nutrition: I'm at a bit of a loss as to how to score this. Seriously, 65 grams of fat? 1610 milligrams of sodium? By all rights, this should have a negative score, but I never planned on doing that. Suffice it to say, no human being should eat this meal and live. Score: 0.0/3.0

Packaging: You have to cut the film off the chicken and brownie, and then you have to take the brownie out after four and a half minutes of cooking. Score: 1.0/2.0

Total Score: 4.0/10.0
