Trader Joe`s Grilled Balsamic Vinegar Rosemary Chicken

2 years ago

During those hot summer months where the last thing you want to do is stand around a hot stove or hot grill and cook something ... I tend to go for convenience items. Something that can give me a boost of protein, fill my belly and not make the house hot and/or make me too hot. I picked up a package of Trader Joe`s Grilled Balsamic Vinegar & Rosemary Chicken one trip as my primary lunch for a few days.

Initially I wasn`t sure if I`d like the flavor of the chicken that much since rosemary can tend to be one of those hit or miss herbs for me. In some dishes it`s too strong, whereas in others it`s paired perfectly ... and this was one of those dishes where it was paired perfectly with the balsamic vinegar. I packed up my lunches for a few days by measuring out my serving and placing into bowls and heating in the microwave per package directions.

I enjoyed the grilled chicken over salad alongside a side of Trader Joe`s Balela ( What I like most about this chicken is not only that it`s convenient but that first and foremost it`s flavorful, juicy, and most importantly that it`s real chicken! The grill marks on the chicken also gave the chicken some added texture which gave it almost a home-cooked vibe instead of a pre-packaged meal vibe. I`m a self proclaimed chicken snob - partly because I have texture issues with some foods and that I sometimes pick at my food as I eat. This chicken surpassed the test and was quite enjoyable to have as a lunch for a couple days.

A serving, 3 ounces, is 100 calories or 2 points plus values.
