Marie Callender's Cheesy Chicken & Rice

Looks: Like someone had already chewed it and spit it back into the bowl. Where are the nice big strips of chicken? Where are the fresh broccoli florets? Where is the creamy cheese sauce? Nowhere to be found. The biggest piece of chicken was perhaps a third the size of the pieces pictured on the box, and even before cooking, the cheese sauce was mixed into the rice. I almost didn’t eat it because of how it looked. 1 out of 5

Taste: Even worse than it looks. I was able to stomach four bites before I threw the rest out; because of the way that the cheese sauce gums up the rice and traps the chicken and vegetables in a web of disgusting cheeserice, the entire dish tastes and feels the same – like crap. 0 out of 5

    I’ve eaten this once before and have sworn to never eat it again. I don’t care how you cook it — this is pure crap in a plastic bowl.

    You should try the Marie Callender’s pot pies.

    I tried one a few days back because it was on sale or had a coupon or something.

    I wish I had a cheep Banquet one…

    You overcooked it. I buy this thing ALL the time and mine never comes out looking like that. I think it’s absolutely delicious, the only Marie Callender meal that hasn’t turned to complete crap since the economic decline (and therefore cheapening of ingredients). Oh sure, the chicken isn’t as big as it is on the box, but it’s delicious all the same, in my opinion.
    Try MC’s Chicken Alfredo with Broccoli (I forget the exact name of the dish), THAT is some awful stuff, the sauce is like water.

    I agree, it is overcooked in the picture and the meal is really one of the best!

    I have an idea that would benefit your company.
    I enjoy your pot pies a lot and my wife thinks they are great.

    My question is ,if I submit an idea, do I need a patent.

    I am on social security and my wife is on unemployment,so I cannot afford a patent attorney.

    I actually bought this and mixed in already cooked rice because I knew the cheese sauce would be too much. It stretched to feed 4 people instead of 1, and was pretty passable.

    Oh come on! You obviously mixed this up and made it look like that. The only reason the cheese would be all over the sides would be if you mixed it up. You must work for one of Marie’s competitors. I hate intellectually dishonest people.

    @k: The directions included mixing it up, so I mixed it up. It doesn’t change the fact that it tasted like glue.
