Red’s GF Chicken, Cilantro and Lime Bowl

Red’s GF Chicken, Cilantro and Lime Bowl

I found this entree at Sprout’s, and because I was alone that night, I bought it to enjoy on my own. It’s been a long time since I’ve purchased a rice bowl, it’s my favorite because of all the fun ingredients- rice, chicken, veggies/beans, and from the picture, I got the impression the chicken was tender and flavorful.

It was easy to microwave for a quick meal. Cut a few 1″ slits in the plastic wrap and pop in the microwave for 4 minutes on high, then let sit for a minute before you stir and enjoy.

I did pause it at the 2-minute mark to stir it for even cooking. I didn’t stir it so much as shake it a bit to mix.

When I removed the plastic wrap, it looked rather bland & dull, not enticing like the entree pictured.

The flavor was real peppery (pepper is the last ingredient on the list), the brown rice mushy not light and fluffy (more similar to oatmeal, soggy and wet), the roasted red bell peppers limp and sad. The chicken flavor was bland, unsavory.

I ate half, mainly focusing on eating the chicken, and debated saving the rest for the next day, I chose to throw the rest away.

Not a product I’d buy again. I think it was on sale for $4.99.
