Smart Ones Chicken Parmesan
Posted by: Gregory Ng: The Frozen Food Master
Yay chicken! Yay spaghetti! Yay cheese! Hooray for all that is great about chicken parmesan meals. Obviously I love chicken parmesan so when I saw that Smart Ones had a Weight Watchers approved version I needed to see what would be skimped to make it qualify for a 5 Weight Watchers Points value.
Apparently where they skimped was the breading on the chicken. As in, they skimped completely because there isn’t any on the chicken. This Smart Ones Chicken Parmesan has “seasoned chicken breast and spaghetti with marinara sauce topped with cheese”.
It also had a fairly satisfying meal with a generous portion. I found myself remarking at the succulence of the chicken and the nice cheesy crusty edges due to the fact that the directions did not require any stirring halfway through. The spaghetti was soft enough to splatter marinara on my new shirt when I twirled it on my fork and the sauce was tasty enough.
All in all, a decent meal that doesn’t make you feel you blew your entire day’s calorie and fat intake.
