Trader Joe’s Chicken Breast Medallions with Coconut Red Curry Sauce Review

The pros:  Tasty curry, tender chicken, ready in under 4 minutes.

The cons:  You’ll need a side dish of some sort.   All it is is chicken and curry.

The verdict:  For $5.99  It was only an ok value.  Realistically there is only 1 chicken breast in the whole package so you are getting that and sauce.  It’s still cheaper than going out, but Trader Joe’s does sell grilled chicken in the freezer case for $5.49 for an entire pound of chicken.  Just some food for thought.  I thought this was tasty, but I’m not sure I’d buy it again.  If I could buy the sauce and just add grilled chicken to it, I’d probably do that instead.

On to some brown rice (yes, from Trader Joe’s)Trader Joe's Chicken Breast Medallions with Coconut Red Curry Sauce

The dish was good and had some nice fruit flavors in addition to the gentle flavor of coconut.  There is a good amount of heat to this dish so if you are sensitive be advised.  I found the heat to be pleasant.  I served my dish over 1 packet of brown rice.  This is easily 2 meals with a respectable calorie count.  Buying this again is only a maybe for me.  For the price I expected more than a chicken breast since you can get a whole pound of chicken breast cut up in the freezer section, or for the same price you can get a 3 lb rotisserie chicken at Costco.  This is good, but only made my list of maybes.
