Chicken entrees offer little to strut about

* Item: Perdue Entrees

* What you get: 2 servings

* Cost: About $3

* Preparation time: 2 to 3 minutes in microwave, 25 to 30 minutes in conventional oven

* Review: Perdue's newest heat-and-serve chicken entrees are heavy on tasty, white-meat chicken. The flavors could use a little fine-tuning, however. The Jambalaya With Chicken, Sausage, Rice and Ham was overpowered by fennel. The Chicken Alfredo With Fettucine was rich and creamy, but with an odd sweetness to it. The portions seem a little off, too. If I split this for 2 servings as the label suggests, I'd definitely have to come up with a salad and another side dish to make a meal.
