Swanson Skillet Meals

With the choicest cuts of meat, unbelievably crisp vegetables, and 6 sumptuous sauces,
new Swanson Skillet meals are, well, exactly what you’d make.
Flavors available: Garlic Chicken, Alfredo Chicken, Three Cheese Chicken, Creamy Cheddar Chicken, and Beef Lo Mein.

My Opinion:
While browsing the choices I had in the grocers, I will be honest, I wasn't sure I would enjoy the meal. Then I chose Beef Lo Mein.
Even in the saucepan, I wondered if I would enjoy it. It looked boring really coming out of the bag.
Once it softened up and cooked down, it really started to smell good. Then my taste buds started to get curious.
So I served the dish, and sat to eat, all the while staring at my bowl, still curious. It smelled delicious, and looked better than when I started, but I'm not a big fan of frozen meals, so the leeriness was still there.
Then I tasted it.... talk about surprising!! It was delicious, just like the smell. I was really blown away. The vegetables still had crunchiness, the noodles were good, and the beef tasted as it would if you ordered the dish in a Chinese restaurant.
The hubby and I looked at each other, and both decided it was worth it to have it again. Not a bad price to have something easy.


5/5


Recommend? Most definitely, it would make a great side dish!

  1. I can always use something easy and quick to keep in the freezer for those days when my planning is off. This looks like it fits the bill.

  2. i guess it does come down to taste. i'll have to check it out along with its sodium content. i remember enjoying the novelty of swanson's tv dinners way back when.

  3. I'm skeptical about those bagged dinners too. There's only enough in them for the hubby and I, so I always end up cooking something different for the kids. This looks like a good side dish, though. Thanks for letting me know about them.
