Lean Cuisine Apple Cranberry Chicken Review

Lean Cuisine Apple Cranberry Chicken

Lean Cuisine’s Apple Cranberry Chicken was actually recommended to us by a friend who is enthusiastic about Lean Cuisine’s line of frozen dinners. Of course, we had to see what the fuss was all about, so we decided to check out this mealĀ for ourselves.

In a line dominated by longtime classics and traditional frozen dishes, the Apple Cranberry Chicken definitely stands out. It has a unique flavor that would be incredibly difficult to find anywhere else.

The real star of this show, of course, is the sauce, which is sweetened by the presence of apple chunks and cranberries, as well as orange juice concentrate and sugar. This gives every bite a fruity flavor that’s surprisingly good. In fact, you might forget you’re eating chicken and vegetables and think this is some sort of delicious apple strudel.

The chicken is moist and tasty, and we found some of the chicken pieces to be a little gristly, which pairs well with the sweet sauce. These chunks of white meat chicken rest atop a bed of orzo pasta, green beans, and carrots, though you’ll barely taste any of that stuff due to the overwhelming apple flavor.

We can see why this was recommended to us. It’s a surprisingly adventurous flavor combo from a company that tends to stick with the true classics. Of course, we also have to imagine this is a very love-it-or-hate-it frozen meal. We’d recommend you try it, though its sweet apple flavor might not be for everyone.
