Critique: HC Roasted Chicken and Potatoes!


According to the package this 180 calorie entree has ‘savory slices of chicken breast with redskin potatoes, crisp carrots and tender pearl onions all in a light chicken and herb sauce.’ How, I wondered can you go wrong with that offering from the folks at Healthy Choice?
I posted a glowing review concerning their Chicken and Spinach Alfredo offering some time ago and still feel that it was one of the best TV style dinners I’ve ever had. It is one of like seven of their ‘Baked’ microwave meals that run on sale for about $2.80 plus tax here in Forsyth Missouri where I make my home.
This meal, like the Chicken and Alfredo also boasts only 560 mg of sodium and just 35 mg of cholesterol! However, please remember that this is an entree and as such, you don’t get all that much to eat. But, when combined with a vegetable salad on the side, it does make for a good sit down meal.
Also, like the other entree I have reviewed, it is a slit and nuke affair that doesn’t take much over five minutes to get on the table. (I like that in both my TV dinners and my women)! Once again and not to belabor the point, for under $3 you are getting something that is considered a fast food, yet is also healthy for you to eat! If I remember correctly, my last outing to McDonald’s netted me only a hamburger and medium fry for something like $7! It was also over 900 calories and chock full of cholesterol and salt! And, while I do admit to slinking over to the ‘Golden Arches’ from time to time, I surely do not make it a regular habit.
Overall, the taste was pretty durn good! Maybe the carrots were a tad too crisp while the potatoes seemed somewhat so, I guess it’s a preference thing. The sauce they used, compliments the entire entree and the chicken tasted like… chicken. Another winner! Score of 8 on a scale of 10.
