Meatless Citrus Glazed Chicken Gardenburger Meal
Anyway, I lunched alone today and was starving by 11:30 so I decided to try the Gardenburger Meal Meatless Citrus Glazed Chicken with green beans and rice. I was very attracted to it's credentials : 220 calories, 2g Fat, and a whopping 22g of protein. My eyes lit up -goodbye cottage cheese, hello citrus chicken.
So, after a few minutes in the micro, here's what my meal looked like:
I have to say, my respect for food photographers has gone way up in the last week or so. The chicken looked a little better in real life. Happily, it tasted a lot better than it looked. It had a definite chicken texture inside and tasted like chicken to me. The citrus glaze was a little sweet for me, but the strong orange flavor made a nice change. The rice was great and the green beans were surprisingly good for micro food (they squeaked a bit). I liked the glaze on the sides more than on the chicken. While it wasn't as good as the riblets or chik'n grills, with the convenience factor and great credentials, I'd enjoy this meal occasionally. I ate it all and it satisfied my hunger completely. And with the tiny amount of fat in the whole meal, I could consider indulging in one mini cruller from Krisy Kreme! (heck, only 7g of fat and 110 calories - well maybe not...)
There's two more meals listed on the box that I'd like to try, but haven't seen anywhere- Herb Grilled Chicken with Vegetables and Sweet and Sour pork. If you've tried these, let me know what you thought.
