Home Cookin’ – Chicken Fried Chicken – Banquet Frozen Dinner Review

The box says “A good source of protein”.  I wonder if they meant the box, instead of the contents?  A piece of chicken fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and corn kernels, six minutes in the microwave, two minutes rest, and you have a really low cal (300) lunch or dinner. That’s the good news.  Unfortunately the carbs are pretty drastic, and the sodium is outrageous.

The potatoes and corn are about the same as fast food – think KFC.  The chicken?  Not so good.  As I have opined in many of these “I tried this so you don’t have to” pieces, I don’t understand why the food industry can’t get a crispy coating on a heat and eat product.  Some of the items with ‘heating trays’ come close, but most, like this, are a soggy miss.  Banquet has a brand new website showcasing their products.

This is from  ConAgra, who make some really good products.  Their “Marie Callender’s” line of frozen foods is  a step up from  Banquet.
