There’s plenty of chicken meat.  But read carefully, this is dark leg meat.  While perfectly tender, the dark chicken meat has a stronger flavor than chicken breast.

At only 150 calories per serving, this is surprisingly filling.  At 3.5 servings per bag or 525 calories per bag, if you split the entire bag with another person that’s only 265 calories.  For those few calories there are 31 grams of protein, which is a big chunk of the daily requirement for protein.  Combine this with some steamed frozen vegetables and even a little butter or olive oil on the veggies and we’re looking at a filling meal at around 400 calories total.  That’s not bad.

But the sauce imparts enough flavor to the chicken.  The sauce will not cover the flavor of the leg meat.  I didn’t find that to be a problem, so the preceding sentence was just a note for you.  There are two packets of frozen sauce in the bag.  I suppose you could only cook half the chicken in the bag using just one of the sauce packets, leaving the rest of the frozen chicken and the other sauce packet for another day.  Cooking is no more than heating in the microwave.  Coming out of the bag, the chicken looks like various shaped dark rocks.  Some of those rocks are so big you may wonder if they came from turkey legs instead of chicken legs.  These must be some big chickens.

Price $4.99     Calories  150 per serving (3.5 servings per bag)
