A while back, Dave and I sampled one of Healthy Choice's Cafe Steamers and were horrified, shocked, and slightly amused to find that the "Orange Zest Chicken" meal we had bought tasted like a trip to the dentist's office: minty, sweet, and not much else. You can read the original review here. We chalked it up to something gone awry on the packing line and I said that if I had the opportunity, I'd taste it again.
After enjoying a freshly-purchased Sweet and Spicy Orange Zest Chicken, I can safely say that this thing is delicious. The chicken is tender and juicy, the veggies done to perfection, and the sauce has a sweet undertone of oranges and a spicy kick of hot red peppers. Whatever was wrong with the first one I tasted was not present in this one. I'm extremely happy to say that this may be one of my favorite Cafe Steamers I've had so far.
