When I saw Lean Cuisine came out with these new Salad Additions, I instantly picked up this Asian-style Chicken because out of the line that was available at my local Wal-Mart (at the time) was very limited (2 flavors). I wasn’t sure if it was going to be good – the good ole skeptic that I can be when it comes to frozen foods. I will admit, I’m not the biggest fan of Lean Cuisine frozen dinners but I felt I would give this one a shot. I mean, it’s salad, right?
I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by this! The product comes with 3 individual plastic bags inside of the box. You microwave the pouch containing the chicken and vegetables for the set amount of time. Soak the dressing packet in warm water (to defrost it) and simply open the crunchy topping when your food is ready to assemble. The only “work” that goes into this salad is the minimal preparation; which consists of making your own salad (or dumping bagged salad into a bowl as I did), microwaving, opening pouches and consuming.
The Asian-style chicken came with grilled chicken, edamame, pineapple, broccoli and carrots. For a crunchy topping there are chow mein noodles and it comes with a really delicious sesame ginger salad vinaigrette. Overall I highly recommend these – they’re a great, quick and easy lunch/dinner.
Weight Watchers Points Plus wise this will cost you 7 Points Plus, which I feel is truly justifiable.
Have you tried any of the Lean Cuisine Salad Additions?
