Juicy dark-meat chicken and hearty mushrooms mingle with crisp edamame and snappy green beans for a budget-friendly (a bag with four servings is just $ 5) weeknight dinner. The chicken mixture cooks quickly and can be served with whole-grain brown rice for a reasonably healthy fast food-like dinner. Indeed, despite a soy sauce-based glaze, this frozen mixture manages to maintain reasonable sodium levels. That’s not something you can say for your average takeout option.
