Lean Cuisine Cafe Classics Bowl: Chicken Fried Rice

This is not all that good coming in at barely 2 forks. The flavor was bland as if it was attempting to be Asian. There's a hint of soy sauce and that's about it. The rice was overcooked and gummy. Small pieces of chicken were only fair with half being dried out. As with so many of the frozen meals tested the veggies are the redeeming feature. This is because vegetables that have been frozen hold up fairly well with quick microwave reheating. The peas and carrots are not enough to save this dish, however.

An innocuous choice best left in the freezer case.

We recently revisited this product and have an updated review of Lean Cuisine's Chicken Fried Rice.
