Today, I am reviewing my first experience with a totally new product by Perdue, the Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Roasts. The Breast Roasts come already marinated in Lemon Herb (which was the only flavor available in my Walmart) and they are exclusive to Walmart stores.

This is important for the giveaway that I am hosting. If you do not have a Walmart store in your neighborhood, you will likely NOT be able to buy the product. I checked this morning at Food Lion, Kroger and Harris Teeter and could not find this product in any of the stores.

 As I said, I had to buy the Lemon Herb flavor since my local Walmart in S. Durham carried no other flavor. But according to the Perdue website, the Chicken Breast Roasts are also available in Smokehouse Peppercorn, only not at my local Walmart. 

copyright Durhamonthecheap - it is recommended that you add foil to the bake sheet for easy clean-up

copyright Durhamonthecheap - oven set to 375F and pre-heating, meanwhile you can "prep" the roast
 I mention prep, but really all you need to do is cut open the bag and place the breast roast onto the baking sheet! Dinner prep could not be easier. I made mashed potatoes while the chicken was cooking and steamed some asparagus. I love these dinners because one course takes care of itself and frees up your time to do other things!

copyright Durhamonthecheap - calories per serving are 110 and the meal is gluten-free! Serves 4
 Notice that the 110 calories per portion contain only 25 calories from fat and the size of these breast roasts is perfect for a family. Depending on the age of the kids, you may have even some leftovers for lunch the next day!

copyright Durhamonthecheap- smells abolutely delicious and looks totally appetizing!
 I wish their was smell-web so you could actually smell how the delicious the meat was. It was really nicely balanced. When I first put the breast roast into the oven I could smell garlic and I do not like garlic. I mean not just not like garlic, when I was in the hospital they actually allergic to garlic on my chart because I really react that strongly to garlic. So was definitely worried and wished Walmart had offered the other flavor with Peppercorn, which likely did not contain as much garlic as a Lemon "Herb" flavor. But after letting the meat cook and then actually tasting it, the worries were not needed. There was really not obvious garlic flavor present.  The flavors were in my opinion well balanced, similar to the Oven Ready products that I had previously sampled from Perdue.

 If you go the Perdue homepage for the Breast Roasts here, you can find recipe suggestions. I decided to simply prepare the roast as recommended on the packaging since I had found some asparagus on sale and also wanted to make homemade mashed potatoes for dinner. But you can certainly go to the Perdue pages and find recipe suggestions. One recipe that I am interested in trying is making some apple relish containing the breast roast.


So how were the PERDUE® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Roasts? Well, I could show the empty plates! But honestly, the prep was so easy and the meal ended up being delicious and healthy. I paired steamed asparagus with butter, mashed potatoes with chives and the PERDUE® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Roasts. It was a nice weekend dinner and we even had some left over for a lunch next week. I liked the flavoring of the breast roast; you could really smell and tastes the herbs. I would without hesitation serve these roasts instead of homemade chicken breasts. It is nice to see that you have another quick and easy option from Perdue available that comes in handy on a busy day when you cannot prepare a meal from scratch. They taste like homemade and the meat was juicy. I can highly recommend this new product by Perdue.

And to ensure that one of my readers can sample the PERDUE® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Roasts and see how their family likes the breast roasts, Perdue was nice enough to provide me with a free coupon. This coupon should cover the actual price of the product. Coupon value is up to $5 and at my local Walmart in S. Durham the price on the shelf was $4.98. So I ended up only paying taxes.

My favorite dish to make with Perrdue Chicken is stuffed: Boursin cheese, spinach and roasted red peppers. Pound out Chicken roll together on flat breast like you are rolling a sallami rollup and skewer, bake for about 45 minutes and voila. Serve with your favorite pasta, rice or potato. yum yum!
