The reality of Boston Market’s Southwest style grilled chicken frozen dinner

When you open the package, your hopes are immediately smashed by the look of the product. Yes, Boston Market froze their product, but the product looks nothing like the product pictured on the box. You know by looks that the chicken and mashed potatoes will taste bland. They have that freeze dried look to them that does not even begin to make your mouth water. The veggies and peppers are tiny pieces and the cheddar cheese is slightly sprinkled on the top.

You bought the Boston Market Southwest style grilled chicken frozen dinner, so despite the looks, you decide you will have to eat the thing. Money is tight in the rough economy and four bucks is four bucks. You follow the directions and your food is ready to eat in six minutes+ a minute or so of cooling off. The food does not look any better cooked than frozen, but you dig in anyway.

The mixture of vegetables and sauce immediately turn you off, so you begin trying to save the grilled chicken from the sauce. You take the chicken and mix it with the freeze dried mashed potatoes. You remember these potatoes from Boot Camp way back in the early eighties. What happened to the real Boston Market mashed potatoes? You manage to scarf all the grilled chicken and half of the mashed potatoes. The taste is between okay and bland. Boston Market you really outdid yourself on this mess you call Boston Market Southwest style grilled chicken frozen dinner.

After you are finished with your Boston Market frozen dinner you have a sudden desire to drive to McDonald’s and buy a couple of Quarter-Pounders or Big Mac’s. Boston Market’s Southwest style grilled chicken frozen dinner is a complete failure. Good thing you didn’t invite any important guests or friends to your house to share in this mess. Boston Market, you completely failed the test, thumbs down.
