Birds Eye Chef's Favorite {Review}

Last week I received a really fun surprise in the mail....a box full of Birds Eye Chef's Favorite side dishes through the Foodbuzz Tastemaker program!

I was so excited to recieve my goodie box, you have no idea! And now I'm here to tell you about the super delicioius Roasted Red Potatoes & Green Beans that I enjoyed the other night.

Some nights I struggle with creating a good side dish to pair with my meal. I put all this effort into making an awesome main course, and then I forget about the side dish...oops! So the other night I made a pan-seared chicken breast and didn't know what side to have with it.
Salad? No.
Broccoli? No.

Then I remembered I received my box of goodies and paired my chicken breast with the Roasted Red Potatoes & Green Beans. It was easy and delicious!

Just pop the bag into the microwave for about 6-7  minutes to steam cook in the microwave, and you have a side dish that is good to go!

I mean, look at this. Does this look like nasty frozen food?
No way! I looks like I slaved in the kitchen for at least an hour.
I was impressed.

The green beans were crisp. The potatoes were cooked perfectly and the light sauce add a very nice touch. Each bag has 2 servings, which is great for couples like Dusty and I! But since he is gone at harvest, I got to enjoy the 2nd serving for lunch the next day (and it reheats really well!).

If you are a busy parent, college student or just busy with life, I really recommend these great side dishes by Birds Eye for when you want something quick, easy and tasty. Did I mention it's pretty low calorie? Depending on the side dish, it ranges from 90-180 calories per serving...not bad at all!

The "Chef's Favorites" will be available in September, so keep an eye out for them!

P.S. The Primavera Vegetable Risotto was really good too! I had that one last night with dinner, and for lunch today with a salad. YUM!

*Thanks Foodbuzz and Birds Eye for the chance to sample and review this great product!*


  1. These look soooooo good! Side dishes are always the hardest part of dinner for me! I always run out of ideas! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. I always keep a stash of frozen veggies in case of emergency. My favorite is the Green Giant green beans with almonds, but these look tasty too. Thanks for the review!
