Meal Description and Cooking Instructions
The Tex-Mex Chicken dinner entrée came in a 2-compartment plastic tray, with a small salsa-topped chicken breast cutlet and about 1/3 cup rice and beans in one section and approximately 1/3 cup golden, whole kernel corn in the other.
The dieter is to provide fruit and dairy accompaniments for the meal. I decided on a serving of mixed berries for my fruit, and I topped the chicken cutlet with some low-fat mozzarella cheese to serve as the dairy component.
The heating instructions called for the entrée to be microwaved on high for 1 to 1 ½ minutes. Based on my prior experiences, I heated mine for 1 minute 45 seconds since my microwave is a lower-wattage model.
Tex-Mex Chicken with black Beans, Rice, Corn, and Salsa
My General Impressions
The meal was colorful enough on the plate with the red salsa, black beans, red and blue berries, and golden corn kernels, but the salsa looked a bit on the dry side. There wasn’t a lot of it, however; only about one or two tablespoons.
