  • The sauce is nice and thick and creamy, but I noticed a slight bitter taste
  • And there is supposed to be real cheddar cheese which I found their use of cheese to be weak

      I never really liked vegetables all that much except for salads of course. But I saw this Voila Cheesy Ranch Chicken Dinner in the Bird’s Eye Frozen vegetables section and couldn’t resist trying it out.

      This product is a full dinner all in one package. And I was really surprised to see large chucks of chicken and large pieces of vegetable mixed with full sized pasta. The sauce was even in a separate package frozen into a block instead of being pre- mixed already throughout the whole

      dinner. And the package instructs to throw the entire frozen ingredients, placing the sauce cube on top of the chicken, vegetable mixture, into a saucepan and cook for ten minutes, that’s it. The sauce is nice and thick and creamy, but I noticed a slight bitter taste.

      And there is supposed to be real cheddar cheese which I found their use of cheese to be weak. So I ended up throwing in a cup of shredded cheese and a couple handfuls of cheese flavored croutons on ...

      • top to jazz the taste up a bit. A couple squirts of hot sauce might be a good idea if you like spicy meals like I do.

        Overall, the product is more of a base meal with all the food groups portioned out carefully with a fairly good base sauce. Of course the portion size is way too small at only one cup per serving, but I added a side salad and a dinner roll to even the portion quantity. And I even added a side dish

        of chocolate cake that totally ruined the low 210 calorie benefit of this dinner.

        I just love how easy I can prepare on the go lunches right before taking off to work. I just add the ingredients in a sauce pan, add a little spice, finish getting ready for work, fill a Tupperware bowl with a nice hot lunch and go. Really, paying $3.99 for 22 ounces of a hot, healthy lunch is a whole lot better than spending the same amount at a fast food rive thru.

    Large chunks of chicken? I agree but not when there’s 5 in a bag (and a large chunk is considered a tablespoon). The sauce was disgusting. I had to keep adding water because of the cornstarchy consistency (not saying there’s corn starch in it but most cooks know what consistency I’m talking about). I did have a few big chucks of broccoli and thick slices of carrots. Other than that, lots lots of pasta. Buy the vegies yourself, a box of pasta lasts several meals, get a jar of cheap alredo and spice it up with your own spices.

    Bottom line, yuck….waste of time.

    I have found that when I buy a product like this I always need to add a little extra vegetables and chicken. Not a lot, but adding some of my own ingredients helps to give it a more home cooked flavor, plus makes it more filling.
