Voila! 10 Minute Chicken Parmesan By Birds Eye

I was given the opportunity to try out Birds Eye Voila!. We are a pasta loving household. Chicken Parmesan was recently requested and I knew exactly which bag I'd be pulling out of the freezer at my local grocery store.

Whenever I am buying a new product I'll flip the item over and read the nutritional information. The stats aren't too shabby and this is a product that I'd be happy to keep stocked in my freezer for those nights when my meal planning skills are lacking or I just don't have it in me to cook a fussy meal.

This meal couldn't be easier to put together. One skillet with a lid and 10 minutes. That's it! One recommendation I have is to stir this frequently scrapping the bottom of the pan. The sauce was beginning to stick to the bottom of the pan so I turned the heat down to medium as well.
You can make out all of the ingredients: breaded chicken, penne, roma tomatoes, and onions.
I've had my share of frozen meals and I can tell you that the flavors in this one are outstanding. I had my father visiting for the week and he got the chance to try this out with us. He exclaimed, "You can smell and taste the garlic!" You really could make out exactly what you were eating. My favorite bites were the roma tomatoes. In fact, I wish there were more bits of them.
Frozen sauce. Easy to remove from the packet.
Just a heads up... if you are making this for more than two I recommend picking up the family size or another bag because the portions are generous and each of these bags gives two and a half servings. At the grocery store a bag was $3.98 and that came to $1.99 per serving since it gave us two servings instead. Can't beat that price eating out. Give this a try. You won't be disappointed.
