Lean Cuisine Chicken Club Panini Sandwich Review

Sometimes for lunch, you just want something quick and hot. You might be pressed on time, you might just be too tired to cook, or anything else, but you just want to stick something in the microwave and be done with it.

I’m a big fan of several of the Lean Cuisine Dishes, but I don’t believe I’ve ever had their Chicken Club Panini.

I really enjoy the Lean Cuisine pizzas, and the meatloaf isn’t bad at all! there are a few other ones I like, so I decided to give this one a try.

It comes with chunks of chicken and assorted other dressings on it. In the box, there’s a foil-type plate to put the sandwich on to make it crispy and give it that panini texture.

Issue is, it didn’t work very well. Although the flavor was OK on this sandwich (not great, just OK) the bread was soggy. I followed the instructions on the box, but it just didn’t work well. As you can see from the pictures, it looked decent enough.

Although the taste was OK, I think I’ll pass on this one from now on. The texture just didn’t do it for me. I’ll continue to try some new things interspersed with my favorites.

Lean Cuisine Supreme Pizza review

You know, I’m not seeing a lot of folks reviewing microwave meals these days, so I thought I’d try my hand at that.

A year or a bit long ago I became acquainted with a group of folks known as The Indiana Pizza Club, and I’ve got to say, I’ve REALLY enjoyed getting to know them. You can find them on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. and if you enjoy pizza with a healthy side of humor and sports, give them a follow!

I’ll ALWAYS go for a local pizza place. Sometimes, though, I don’t want to go out for lunch, and just need something quick and convenient. We keep a stock of frozen meals in our freezer, so I can just grab something when I’m in a hurry.

I’m generally fond of Lean Cuisine meals, and the pizza is no exception. It’s quick, hot, and convenient.

So, how’s the pizza? Honestly, it’s pretty mediocre. It’s not bad by ANY means, but it’s not great either. I could do with less tomato sauce—it’s pretty sauce heavy, but the toppings are fine. Everything is—fine.

Take a moment, scroll back up and look at the picture of the pizza on the box.

Now here’s the pizza after cooking.

The box certainly looks more appetizing, right? On closer look, the toppings are pretty much like is in the picture, but there’s not nearly as much cheese on the finished product as there is on the box. That’s the biggest disappointment for me. The sausage and pepperoni both taste pretty good to me.

The crust is fine. Not great, not terrible. Even with the supplied foil type platter to cook it on, I’ve never had one come out as crisp as I wish it would.

Still, it’s a fine lunch. It’s hot, quick, relatively tasty meal.390 calories isn’t bad for a meal. Beware, though, this pizza has 720 mg of sodium, and that’s a lot. If you’re watching your sodium intake, be aware of that.

So, would I buy it again? Yeah, I’ve been eating these for years. Like I said, they’re quick, hot, and convenient, and sometimes that’s all you need.
