Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers Balsamic Garlic Chicken

So I am going to kick up my posts this week I went shopping and found some interesting and some long standing items to test out this week. Also some exciting news I have a upcoming sponsored review for http://www.sodastreamusa.com/ that have asked me to review honestly there flavors of soda and the machine that makes the soda as well. A glass of soda through their system on average costs 25 cents after the initial investment and the bottles they supply makes and their co2 exchange system makes it a lot greener than companies. I drink a lot of soda especially diet soda so I am excited to try the flavors and mix a few of my own.

But today is for Healthy Choice Cafe Steamers Balsamic Garlic Chicken. This is part of their new Mediterranean series that includes four flavors: Grilled Basil Chicken, Balsamic Garlic Chicken, Grilled Vegetables Mediterranean, and Lemon Garlic Chicken and Shrimp. The balsamic garlic chicken out of the box looked very different from the packaging, most notably the mushrooms were darkened like a grape let out in the sun too long. I shrugged that off and cooked it for five minutes and tosses it together. Walking toward the kitchen I thought something was cooking garlic bread but when I tried my dish I found the garlic flavor destroyed by the sauce and other components. The Balsamic sauce was so sweet I thought someone at the company mixed up the sodium with sugar. Not to mention the onions and red peppers were like the frozen bagged type and fell apart while cooking and only added to the sweetness. The pasta on a good note was cooked perfect for my taste and the chicken although smaller than the Asian inspired chicken packed some flavor of the herbs. I think healthy choice needs to tweak this recipe a little for it to be a good to great product. This product is also 5 points on weight watchers.

Final Score – 5.2/10
