The Glucoholic has finally stopped worrying about swine flu long enough to get down to business and review another great low carb food. We’re talking about Pilgrim’s Pride EatWellStayHealthy Grilled Chicken Breast Fillets. The EatWellStayHealthy brand is a lineup of frozen chicken products designed with health in mind, and products in the line sport the American Heart Association’s heart-check mark for low saturated fat and cholesterol. Generally we like to have fresh chicken when we can, but there are some times when having some frozen breast fillets on hand that only need to be heated up is a great time saver.
The chicken breast fillets are packaged in a handy resealable freezer bag. There are clear, concise instructions for how to heat the fillets in the microwave, on the stove, and in the oven. We chose to prepare our fillets in the microwave. Following the instructions yielded a flavorful, juicy chicken breast that we were quite pleased with. These fillets did not taste like they just came off the grill in the back yard, but there is some grilled taste provided by the “smoke flavor added” mentioned on the packaging. The grill marks on the fillets round out the experience. If you are looking for some healthy, tasty chicken breasts you can prepare in a flash, we highly recommend Pilgrim’s Pride EatWellStayHealthy Grilled Chicken Breast Fillets.
Nutritionally, we can see why these chicken breasts earned the American Heart Association’s heart-check badge.
