Voila!® Ready To Serve Chicken Florentine

The day after a holiday can be very stressful for Moms, especially those with school-aged children. What better a time to offer this review of Birds Eye® Voila!® prepared meals, right?

Birdseye offers Voila!® ready-made meals in two sizes, regular and family size. I found the regular size to enough food for two adults. A wide array of meals in the regular size is offered and three family sized flavors. The meals are ready in about fifteen minutes, a quick solution when the gang is starving! We sampled the Cheesy Ranch Chicken, Cheddar Chicken Potato, and the Chicken Florentine varieties.

Overall, the meals we tasted had a pleasant, home seasoned flavor. The vegetables and pasta held their texture rather well with the sauce being generously portioned. My only real criticism was the chicken. In all cases, the portions were inadequate to be considered a meal. Then again, I'm used feeding to hungry men who generally expect hearty, meaty meals. With the Cheddar Chicken Potato meal, the pieces seemed to be formed rather than real chunks of chicken.

The Cheesy Chicken Ranch was the most cost-effective of the three. By adding an additional 1/2 cup of chicken broth, the sauce was enough to accommodate another cup of pasta, cooked chicken, and/or vegetables. Red was home for spring break and being a ranch fan, was anxious to sample this one. Of course I added some extra chicken along with the broth to make it heartier. Red very much enjoyed this meal, and being a college kid, was happy to accept a few coupons.

My favorite was the Chicken Florentine. The flavors were much like home made, rich and creamy. In this meal, there were big pieces of real chicken and plenty of spinach. Dad really enjoyed this one too. With the abundance of buy one get one free coupons included in the Tastemaker package, this one I will definitely buy again.

 The legal stuff: As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received a sample of Birds Eye Voila! and 100 BOGO coupons – this did not alter my review of the product and all opinions are 100% mine.

Hope you enjoyed your Labor Day Weekend!
