Trimmed of fat, entree is as good as Granny's

Rush-Hour Remedies

February 10, 1999|By Joanne E. Morvay

* Item: Lean Cuisine Skillet Sensations

* What you get: Two servings

* Cost: About $4.20

* Preparation time: 12 to 14 minutes stove top, 12 to 15 minutes microwave

* Review: These frozen packages include everything from rice and vegetables to chicken, beef and turkey. All you do is snip the bag, pour the contents into a pan and cook. The flavors we tried were true to the Lean Cuisine motto -- "It's not just lean, it's cuisine." While the Beef Teriyaki tasted more like a typical Chinese orange beef, the Herb Chicken and Roasted Vegetables was just like Grandmother used to make. And the Beef Fajita was hearty enough to satisfy the hungriest appetite. The bonus: Each serving has only 3 to 5 grams of fat, and nearly all are 300 calories or less.
