I purchased this Trader Joe’s Chicken Asada meal for my boyfriend and I when we were going to be going away for our anniversary. I figured having at least one meal that was going to be point friendly would be best for me. After purchasing, I found out our hotel did not have a refrigerator or microwave in the room – but the staff advised that they’d gladly heat anything up for me in the staff microwave. That put dampers on bringing meals for the few days we were there – but that made having dinner at the hotel a score for the first day there.
The Chicken Asada meal comes with 2 servings in the container. It’s sold in the refrigerator section at Trader Joe’s because all you need to do is heat it up in the microwave and your meal is ready to roll. It consists of grilled chicken, poblano peppers, red peppers and onions. I was quite surprised at the sheer amount of chicken I was able to have in my meal. It looked like something you would order at Chili’s but ten times better! It tasted delicious, fresh and flavorful. The greatest part was that the serving (1/2 the package) was ONLY 5 points plus values!
My boyfriend and I ate this with wheat flax tortillas, so we were able to have chicken asada tortilla wraps. It was absolutely delicious! This is so good I actually have one in my freezer, which I’ll probably be taking out this week for lunch. Yum!
