Lean Cuisine Sesame Chicken

Looks: The chicken is soggy, not crispy, and there aren’t any sesame seeds on it. Additionally (or subtractionally), there aren’t as many vegetables in the noodles as the box pictures. Everything else is pretty close, except that I couldn’t find the chopsticks in the box and had to go buy my own. 3.5 out of 5

Taste: The main detriment to this meal is the soggy chicken breading. It would be close to perfect if not for that, although I don’t think I’ve ever had crispy chicken come out of a microwave. The noodles are substantial, but they don’t have much of a flavor, and I would have liked to see (and taste) more vegetables. (The plum sauce beneath the chicken and noodles was surprisingly good though.) 3.5 out of 5

    Yeah that was the big thing I noticed too….the soggy chicken.

    That would be awesome if they include ‘stix!! Do they have a disclaimer on the box about them not?

    Did you expect them to put the plate in the box, too?

    Should they include in forks when pictured on the box as well? I find it interesting that when it comes to chopsticks, it’s always mentioned in the commentary, but never other utensils. Why is that?

    No, but that definitely would have earned them another half point. 🙂

    Mainly because I’m lazy and writing about chopsticks is an easy way to fill space.

    This is actually the first Lean Cuisine I have tried that I liked. I agree with your assessment of it, for the most part.

    Only because it’s more novel…and would be awesome…and I love eating with chop sticks….and I think it would be a good cheap way for them to set themselves apart from other frozen food brands.
