We had the opportunity to try Banquet Select recipes this week. Select is the new line from Banquet which boosts “So Good for So Little.” We tried the Home-Style Pot Roast and the Classic Fried Chicken.
The Classic Fried Chicken included two servings of vegetables as well as the Home Style Pot Roast. The Dinners were well portioned and filled us up. My older daughter ate the Classic Fried Chicken meal and let me have a taste and she thought the chicken was better than restaurant chicken but said the corn needed salt!
While both were delicious, I noticed that the Classic Fried Chicken had over 620 calories. So I wouldn’t recommend this one if you are watching calories. Home Style Pot Roast was around 190 calories which was much better calorie wise!
Banquet Select Recipes are priced around $1.50 and if you have a coupon, you can get an even better deal!
They are available in seven varieties:
- Chicken Parmesan
- Classic Fried Chicken
- Enchilada Combo Meal
- Herb Grilled Chicken Breast
- Home-Style Pot Roast
- Slow Cooked Beef
- Smothered Burrito
This is why I like these meals:
- Balanced, quality meal with LOTS of protein (makes you less hungry!)
- Perfectly sized portions for your family so you will not have any wasted food. (I hate when I have to throw out food!!!)
- You will eat out less if you have quick and easy meals on hand to feed your family. Thus, saving your family money.
Select Recipes are now available in supermarkets nationwide.
While, I wouldn’t recommend frozen dinners every meal, these are a filling, inexpensive meal for the times when you don’t have time to cook a home cooked meal! Busy families know this happens often! You can feed a family of 6 for under $10 – which we can’t do even at a Fast Food restaurant. If you buy them on sale and with a coupon, it could be much less!
One more thing, just for fun, my daughter did a video review of her meal. (Basically it is just her eating her food and answering my questions. She wanted to be “famous” and be on my blog.)
