The first one that I tried was Chicken with Basil Cream Sauce. It contains only 230 calories, 5 grams of fat, and has 2 grams of fiber.
It had cheese tortellini, grilled chicken, Italian green beens, red bell peppers, and yellow carrots. I thought the carrots were yellow bell pepper at first, but they were so sweet I had to look at the box to see what they were. I thought this tasted really good. The green beans could have been a little more cooked, but that could have been my ancient microwave (almost as old as those memories I was telling you about). The sauce was delicious, I could have literally
licked scraped the plate. Or sopped it with a piece of Italian bread.
The next one I tried was Glazed Chicken--240 Calories, 5 grams of fat, and 2 grams of fiber--roasted white meat chicken in lemon tarragon sauce with rice, french-style green beans, and cashews. Now this one really brought memories, as the earlier version of glazed chicken was one my very favorites, back in the day.
The new version is equally as good as my memories, if not more so. I was especially impressed that it came in a little black microwavable container, all I had to do was peel the plastic cover at one point and stir. (Gone are the days of boil-in-bag plastic bags--I used to bring my own plate to cook and eat mine from at work, along with a real fork. Really.)
