Meal Review: 5 reviews in 1 post!

My apologies for falling behind on my meal reviews. Things on this end have been a bit busy since the arrival of Lillie Mae three weeks ago! My husband and I have sampled a few of the freezer meals since Lillie’s arrival, so here we go catching up on reviews.

Let’s talk Chicken, Broccoli, Bacon & Potato Bake.
This is a well-rounded recipe, easy to bake off, and delicious! I’d consider adding more bacon, but what recipe isn’t made even better with more bacon?

We’ve also sampled the Cilantro Lime Chicken¬†recipe.
This recipe smells amazing as it cooks! We made quite a few meals out of this. I enjoyed it with some added sour cream and shredded cheese. It reminded me of a chicken dip that would have been fabulous with tortilla chips! I didn’t pick up a lot of lime flavor, but everything was well balanced. This would be a great potluck recipe to share with a group.

Honey Garlic Chicken & Veggies was another recipe we tried.
This recipe was tasty. The veggies were slightly overpowered by the sauce that everything cooked in, but still tasted good.

Now let’s look at¬†Easy Crockpot Mongolian Beef.
Definitely serve this recipe with rice! The green onion garnish adds a nice flavor. The first night we had this recipe as it called for, the beef, green onion, and rice. When I made it leftover for lunch I added some salad greens that my mother in law had brought over. It was a pre-bagged salad, but it had cabbage and roasted quinoa and had come with a sesame dressing, so it had a bit of an oriental flare to it. The added greens and shredded carrot added a lot to the dish! I would definitely recommend adding some veggies to this meal! Broccoli, carrots, shredded cabbage, or any veggie that might go into a stir-fry I think would be a great addition!

And lastly, Maple Dijon Pulled Chicken.
This is what we had for dinner tonight. This meal tastes delicious by itself, but would be even better served on rolls (perhaps Hawaiian Rolls, yum!) and garnished up a bit! I’d add some cheese, perhaps lettuce, caramelized onions, and some additional dijon or honey mustard. It could even be delicious with some grilled pineapple. This yields a nice amount of chicken and could make for another great potluck contribution.
