Herb Rubbed Chicken Meal

I do not always have to time to cook fabulous meals for my family (contrary to popular believe). When I feel like I don't have time or effort to cook a whole meal, I go for the frozen food isle. The recipe I'm reviewing today came from a box. While shopping at Wal-mart, I saw these pre-packaged meals that say they cook in less than twenty minutes and feed 4 people. The Herb Rubbed Chicken one was on sale for $5 and the rest were their their usual price at $8.

It was pretty simple to prepare; thaw the chicken and then heat in a saucepan, bake the potatoes for 20 minutes in a 425 degree oven and microwave the vegetables for 4 minutes and BAM! You're finished!
Here's the box it comes in:
And here are the results:

It was super Yummy! The herb rubbed chicken was a little too "herby" for my taste but it tasted really good overall. My only complaint is that it says it feeds 4 but really it would feel 2 nicely. Just to show you what I mean, I took a picture of the whole plate so you could see the serving size. AND keep in mind, we fed three adults lunch with this:

See what I mean? But if you don't want to spend hours making a home cooked meal, try them out, this one was really good!
