In my limited view of things, if a TV dinner has the word ‘oriental’ somewhere in the description, it’s basically some version of chicken chow mien! This product of the folks from Weight Watchers was on sale at $2.50 at a local grocery store and so I scooped one up. You have to give the marketing people some credit as the picture on the front of the package looked awesome! In addition, the 255 gram meal contain only 255 calories and as we all know, if you can score a decent entree that comes in at one calorie per gram, you’re on to something good!
This offering had rice, soy sauce, bits of chicken, celery carrots and all the other stuff you might associate with a chicken chow mien styled meal. Ah so! And, as I was on a life-long diet, I figured it might even fit as something I could supplement with another one or two sides, so I then added a large order of French fries and a milkshake – just kidding. I made do with a glass of milk, instead.
The directions were straight forward. Peel back a corner, nuke on high for 3 minutes 30 seconds, stir and then nuke for another minute. Easy greasy.
The taste was pretty darn good! A good taste combined with low calories makes this a sure winner and I plan to buy more in the future! Scored it an 7.5 on a scale of 10!
