Kashi's frozen meals have finally arrived...Woohoo! 

All natural and made with 7 whole grains, these brand new entrees rocked our socks off!  We chewed 'em, and now we're telling all.  Here's our official review...


Sweet & Sour Chicken

(320 calories, 3.5g fat, 380mg sodium, 55g carbs, 6g fiber, 25g sugars, 18g protein = 6 points)

What It Is: Sliced chicken with roasted green beans and yellow pepper, red pepper, crimini mushrooms, onions and edamame (soybeans), served over Kashi® 7 Whole Grains Pilaf, and topped with a light, tangy sweet and sour sauce.

What We Think: This is one of the best-tasting frozen dinners of all time. We couldn't believe how fresh and AWESOME the veggies were. And the sweet & sour sauce was unbeatable. The edamame was a fantastic touch.  We loved the whole grain pilaf. Yum!

Overall Score: 9.5. We will be buying this one again. And again.  And again.
Southwest Style Chicken

(240 calories, 5g fat, 680mg sodium, 32g carbs, 6g fiber, 3g sugars, 16g protein = 4 points)

What It Is: Chicken marinated in lime juice, cumin and olive oil, grilled then sliced. Served over our Kashi® 7 Whole Grains Pilaf, tossed with fire roasted onions and corn, green and red peppers and topped with southwestern sauce.

What We Think: WOW! Talk about a microwavable Mexican fiesta! We LOVED this dish and were WAY impressed, not only with the tender chicken pieces, but with the veggies' fire roasted flavor (and actual grill marks). Awesome! It even had an impressive spicy kick...

Overall Score: 8.5. We'd chew it again, for sure.
Black Bean Mango

(340 calories, 8g fat, 430mg sodium, 58g carbs, 7g fiber, 11g sugars, 8g protein = 7 points)
 
What It Is: Black beans with roasted red onions and green peppers, red peppers and carrots. Served over Kashi® 7 Whole Grains Pilaf and topped with fire-roasted mango sauce. A delicious dish that's Vegan, too!
 
What We Think:
This meal wins the award for the most original frozen dish ever. This sweet, bean-y, veggie-packed dish had huge chunks of yummy onion and hunks of mango, too, which made it a tropical taste sensation.

Overall Score: 9.5. Two yums up!!!
Chicken Pasta Pomodoro

(280 calories, 6g fat, 470mg sodium, 38g carbs, 6g fiber, 5g sugars, 19g protein = 5 points)
 
What It Is: Chicken and roasted vegetables over whole grain pasta and topped with fresh tomato garlic basil sauce, parmesan cheese and Kashi® 7 Whole Grain Flakes.
 
What We Think: To us, this one was pretty much a standard frozen chicken and pasta meal. Sure the whole grain pasta adds fiber, which is great, but we found this chicken to be a bit saltier than the chicken in the other dishes. There was lots of basil and garlic flavor in this one, too, so if you're a big fan of those things, you may very well groove on this entree. We prefer the meals that feature Kashi's famous 7 Whole Grains Pilaf, though.

Overall Score: 7.5.  Not bad...just not spectacular.
Lemon Rosemary Chicken

(330 calories, 9g fat,  640mg sodium, 45g carbs, 5g fiber, 1g sugars, 17g protein = 7 points)

What It Is: Chicken marinated with lemon and rosemary, grilled then sliced. Served with baby Portobello mushrooms and sugar snap peas over our Kashi® 7 Whole Grains Pilaf, and topped with lemon rosemary sauce.
 
What We Think: While this dish is definitely best suited for SERIOUS rosemary lovers, it's an all-around solid meal. The lemon flavor was pretty much overpowered by the rosemary, so fans of lemon chicken may be a bit disappointed. In fact, we think the name should be changed to Rosemary Rosemary Chicken. We loved the mushrooms and sugar snap peas a lot though. Did we mention this meal is better for people who really crave rosemary? It is. 

Overall Score: 7.5. But that's because we don't like rosemary as much as some other people do.
Lime Cilantro Shrimp

(250 calories, 8g fat, 690mg sodium, 33g carbs, 6g fiber, 8g sugars, 12g protein = 5 points)

What It Is: Shrimp with roasted green peppers and red onion, red bell peppers and carrots, served over our Kashi® 7 Whole Grains Pilaf, and topped with lime ginger cilantro sauce.

What We Think: This meal contained FIVE impressively sized shrimp, and they were far and away the best frozen dinner shrimp we've ever tasted.  It was a bit saucy.  So much so, that we think you could easily add a slew of steamed veggies to it and have more than enough sauce to go around. It tasted creamy, too. And don't worry -- the cilantro wasn't overpowering, so if even if you're not a fan of the stuff, you'll probably still enjoy this entree.

Overall Score: 8.5. A shrimpy good time!
