Healthy Choice Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry Review

Healthy Choice Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry

Sometimes, a meal doesn’t have to be rich or complex for it to be enjoyable. Sometimes, a good, healthy, simple meal is the perfect thing to hit the spot. That seems to be the idea behind Healthy Choice’s Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry — it’s a meal that keeps things pretty basic without a lot of calories.

Like so many of Healthy Choice’s dishes, this one comes with the ingredients in a sort of plastic colander, which keeps them elevated above the sauce while the meal is being cooked.

Once you’ve microwaved this for four and a half minutes, simply peel back the wrapping, dump the ingredients into the bowl where the sauce resides, and give it a good stir. This way, the sauce and the rest of the ingredients don’t mix while cooking.

This isn’t always the best choice when it comes to stir fry-style dishes, but here we think it works out pretty well.

One of the complaints we often have with Healthy Choice’s Asian-inspired dishes is that they tend to skimp out on the sauce. That’s not the case here — this thing is loaded with the stuff. And this sesame soy sauce is pretty good. It has a subtle flavor that doesn’t hit right away; it kicks in suddenly about halfway through chewing any bite.

The chicken here is nothing special. It’s white meat, and it’s not particularly flavorful. But when that sauce flavor pops in, look out! All of a sudden, everything makes sense, and the chicken becomes something completely different. We’d be exaggerating if we said it was delicious, but it tastes pretty good when all the flavors combine.

There’s also a healthy dose of veggies in this mix. Unfortunately, the broccoli and carrots are a bit bland, while the edamame is a little too crunchy in the middle. The bell peppers are nothing to write home about either. But this is another case where the sauce saves the day. If you get a bite with everything in it at once, you’ll understand exactly what Healthy Choice was going for. This dish is, as they say, more than the sum of its parts.

And the whole thing only has 190 calories. Not bad.

Does Healthy Choice’s Chicken & Vegetable Stir Fry knock it out of the park? Of course not. There are better items in Healthy Choice’s lineup. But this is a halfway decent meal with a very small amount of calories, and that’s hard to complain about.
