A's Review: * * *
This is a great thing to have if you want a quick and easy GF meal. That being said, it comes out as this reddish brown pile of food and the portions are a touch on the small side. It tasted much better than it looks and I did make it through the rest of the day after eating one of these for lunch. I would say this is slightly better than average for a frozen meal of any kind, with bonus points for being GF.

Z's Review: * * * *
The box says: "Tender strips of chicken breast meat on a bed of brown rice smothered with rich tomato sauce and topped with zucchini, kidney beans, corn, and jalapeno peppers." There may be jalapeno peppers, but this meal is only mildly spicy. If there was zucchini in there I certainly didn't see it. And I saw maybe two kernels of corn. In fact, this is not visually the most appealing meal I've ever had. But, then again, what frozen meal is super visually appealing? The good news is that it tasted good and was enough food for me to feel satisfied after eating it. The chicken is nicely flavored and the texture of the rice was good. Amy's Rice Mac & Cheese may still my favorite for a quick meal, but this is a really nice alternative.

  1. I would have been a jerk and docked a star for the hideous brand name, but I am a jerk, as stated above. At least it tasted pretty ok. I shall check back often for posts... I love me a food blog!
