After trying out the Lean Cuisine Salad Addition in the Asian-style Chicken flavor I decided to expand my horizon. While grocery shopping at Target I found a few new flavor options that I had not seen at my first trip to Wal-Mart so I picked up the Southwest-style Chicken flavor.
This flavor was quite delicious! I would say it is spicy (as Southwestern dishes tend to be) but not overwhelmingly spicy. 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 Southwest-style chicken comes with grilled chicken, black beans, corn, roasted red peppers and poblano peppers. For a crunchy topping there are crispy tortilla strips and it comes with a chipolte ranch dressing. Overall I highly recommend these – they’re a great, quick and easy lunch/dinner.
Weight Watchers Points Plus wise this will cost you 6 Points Plus, which I feel is justifiable.
Have you tried any of the Lean Cuisine Salad Additions?
