Trader Joe’s – Trader Giotto’s - Chicken Marsala

I picked up this Trader Joe’s Chicken Marsala in the refrigerated section during one of my recent grocery hauls.  I was eyeing the chicken parmesan but since my boyfriend doesn’t like cheese, I didn’t want t be stuck eating both servings – so I opted for this.  It had a similar fried chicken quality, so it would curb that food want.  Sure, my boyfriend doesn’t like mushrooms either, but if you don’t put them on the chicken the flavor isn’t there.

The dish is provided containing two servings (which I admit are two large pieces of chicken).  Since chicken marsala is not something I would make at home, I felt this was a justifiable purchase.  I heated the dish up in the microwave per the package directions - 2 ½ minutes later it was done and ready to be served.

My boyfriend and I ate it alongside some green beans.  It was undoubtedly filling – I had half my serving and had to wait a while before I could read the remainder.  The chicken wasn’t dry – which is sometimes the case when you have to heat poultry in the microwave.  The sauce was flavorful and the provided mushrooms in the sauce were just enough without being overpowering.  Sauce wise I felt there was more than enough sauce for both cutlets (to drizzle over the top or to even drizzle over some pasta on the side if you fancy that).

I gave this two thumbs up.  Weight Watchers Points Plus wise – the serving will cost you 8 points plus – but it’s definitely worth it!

  1. Chicken marsala was our favorite meal at Trader Joe's. The sauce was amazing. But Trader Joe's got cheap and totally scimps on the sauce and it is like a completely different meal with so little sauce. Trader Joe's please please please please at the usual sauce to this amazing meal. The sauce is what makes this meal so delicious but lately the sauce has been so minuscule it's not even worth buying anymore.
