As much as Jon and I enjoy going out and having mini adventures around Shreveport for date nights, we also like enjoying a meal at home and curling up in front of the TV. Sometimes, we don't have the energy to make an entire recipe from scratch, so every once in awhile, we browse the freezer section at the grocery store to see what "homemade" meal we can come up with.
Both of us love Chili's. We've spent many birthday celebrations, small get-togethers and mini reunions there, particularly in college.
When we heard about the new Chili’s® at Home line, we knew we had to give it a try. I mean, the awesome, big, bold and tasty flavors of Chili's from the comfort of our own home? That's better than Chili's leftovers, and I think we all know how good that is.
With so many choices for Chili’s® at Home frozen foods, it was hard to pick which meals we wanted to try. We opted for the Seasoned Chicken Bites with Honey Chipotle Sauce plus these three sides: Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo (I mean, we're in Louisiana. We couldn't not try the one with the word "Cajun" attached), Bacon Mac 'N' Cheese and Chicken Bacon Ranch.
The beauty of all four of these things is that they all took about 30-40 minutes in the oven. That's less than an hour to a full meal. And if you're impatient (admit it. When it comes to food, we can all be a little impatient sometimes, especially if we're hungry), then you can just pop them in the microwave and cut it down to less than a quarter of the oven cooking time.
Jon and I both enjoyed our little dinner date at home. We both loved the chicken bites and were sad after we had eaten them all. Jon's favorite was the Chicken Bacon Ranch, and mine was the Cajun-Style Chicken Alfredo. It was deliciously spicy. After enjoying our bold frozen food meal, we watched the Veronica Mars movie on HBO Go. Perfect night? I'd say so.
If you're looking for a delicious meal in without all the hassle and with all the big, bold flavor, then you definitely have to try new Chili’s® at Home!
