Lighten up your day with this creamy chicken dinner that’s ready in 5 minutes with no clean up. Brought to you by Lean Cuisine, you’ll never guess this delicious meal comes straight out of a box and transforms into a homemade meal.

Lean Cuisine introduces Chef’s Pick, featuring Brad Farmerie, Michelle Bernstein, Paul Kahan, Lior Lev Serearz, and Lucien Vendome.

The chefs of our Culinary Roundtable are embracing the bolder colors and tastes of the season, creating recipes with exciting flavors for our Culinary Collection. Taste their daring flavor combinations in our Chef’s Pick creations—chef-inspired dishes that are as inventive as they are delicious.

Frozen dinners have never been invited in my refrigerator. But between work and extracurriculars, I can’t always whip up a home-cooked meal. The Chicken with Basil Cream Sauce from Lean Cuisine has become my go-to fix for a quick meal that is light and simple at the perfect portion. Juicy grilled white meat chicken over cheese tortellini with Italian green beans, red bell peppers and yellow carrots, all under 240 calories.
