Michelina's - Pop'n Chicken
Michelina's Pop'n Chicken features "white chicken nugget fritters and fun formed mashed potatoes." A 4.5-oz container includes four nuggets and five mashed potato smileys and cost me $1. The chicken nuggets are probably the smallest I've seen in a frozen meal. The mashed potato smileys were smooth (the chicken was also quite smooth) and a little dry inside. When it comes down to it, Michelina's Pop'n Chicken was very reminiscent of the cafeteria lunches I had as a kid

Fusia Chicken Lo Mein, $4.29 for 20 ounces @ Aldi's
Aldi’s freezer version of this takeout favorite is ready in just 12 minutes, which is certainly faster than any takeout I’ve ever ordered. Upon opening the bag, you’ll find nests of frozen noodles among an abundance of bright vegetables that go straight into a hot, oiled skillet or wok. There is a generous portion of savory sauce, so I recommend adding it incrementally after the noodles unfurl. Don’t stop at stir-fry either — try simmering this freezer find in broth for a quick and easy…
Bremer Shepherd’s Pie, $5.99 for 30 ounces @ Aldi's
Aldi’s shepherd’s pie is made with seasoned ground beef and vegetables in a rich sauce and capped with buttery mashed potatoes. The star bursts of buttery mashed potatoes are dusted with paprika, giving this meal a homestyle feel with none of the effort. I expected the filling to have a few more veggies though, so if you make this, plan to supplement with a side of something green to complete the meal.
Saffron Road - Chicken Tikka Masala
Saffron Road's Chicken Tikka Masala features "roasted white meat chicken simmered with Tandoori spices in a robust, creamy tomato sauce" served with Basmati rice. Saffron Road's take on chicken tikka masala is very tomato-y with a substantial tanginess that isn't quite balanced out by a mild creaminess. It's probably the most tomato-forward chicken tikka masala I've eaten. Beyond the tomato, the sauce offered a definite note of curry spices as well as a moderate amount of heat.
