Two New Dinner Items

The other day at the grocery store we picked up a couple new items that we tried out last night for dinner: PC’s Splendido Risotto Quarttro Formaggo and Maple Leaf Prime Prime Chicken Tenderloins in sweet thai chili.

Yes, that’s an odd pairing and one I probably wouldn’t repeat but I would definitely buy both of these products again.

Let’s start the chicken. I generally enjoy Maple Leaf’s Prime line and while I know it’s not the cheapest way to buy chicken, I don’t really care because it’s tasty and easy to prepare. The chicken tenderloins continued that tradition of being yummy, juicy and quick and easy to cook.

This version came with a “tangy sweet finishing sauce” that both Shawn and I liked, meaning that you’ll probably like it to since Shawn and I generally have different sauce tastes. It does have a touch of spiciness but I certainly wouldn’t say that this is a “spicy sauce”.

The only downside to this product is that while there was enough chicken and sauce for two two-person meals, the sauce isn’t in a re-sealable bag. I guess this meal was intended for a family of four.

The PC risotto was also intended to serve four people as a side but Shawn and I some how managed to eat all of it. It was creamy, appropriately textured and even though it contained my most hated food, the onion, it was still tasty.

OK, if you know how to cook and make risotto from scratch, you probably won’t be amazed by this item but if you’re a lazy cook like me, you'll likely enjoy it.

Would I buy this again: Yes
Should you buy it: Yes
