I received Contessa World Cuisine Sesame Chicken for review and two Moms Own Words readers will win 5 free product coupons to try any of the 18 flavors of Contessa World Cuisine – plus five $2.00 off coupons to share with friends and family.
As you can see, this skillet meal has a lot of vegetables, which includes broccoli florets, petite green beans, water chestnuts, carrots, and red and yellow bell peppers. The rice in this meal is brown rice – a healthier option than white.
As far as nutritional value is concerned, I was pretty impressed with most of the breakdown of one serving: 380 calories, 6 grams of fat, 5 grams of dietary fiber and 26 grams of protein. Keep in mind, if you use the (delicious Asian-style sesame sauce) the carbohydrate count is rather high at 56 grams and when calculated for a PointsPlus value this meals has 10 PointsPlus! Shave off three whole points by eliminating the sugary sesame sauce. ( It was well worth the “splurge” – so good with the sweet sesame sauce!) If sodium content is an issue for you, this meal is high in sodium at 1120 mg per serving.
This meal had a nice Asian flavor. I could taste the ginger and soy sauce. I would have liked to see (and eat) a little more chicken, as that was a tasty part of this meal. It’s always nice to have convenient skillet meals with some healthy aspects on hand for busy nights and I would include Contessa’s Sesame Chicken skillet meal in that category.
