Healthy Choice has collaborated with Bravo’s Top Chef to bring eight Top Chef Inspired Cafe Steamers. If you know anything about Top Chef, you’ll expect great ingredients and delicious meals. I tried two of their Steamers and it felt like I was at the judges table! The quality and taste of the food were better than I expected from a frozen meal.

How to Prepare the Healthy Choice Top Chef Steamers
- Place in microwave. Do not puncture the the plastic.
- Microwave for the time on the package.
- Remove from microwave.
- Peel off plastic and remove the vented basket.
- Pour sauce over the meal.
Keeping the sauce separate from the meat, vegetables, and pasta keeps the meat tender, the veggies crisp and the pasta just right.
The Chicken Margherita with Balsamic had tasty pieces of roasted garlic, chicken tenderloins, big chunks of tomato with angel hair pasta. The sauce was a balsamic vinaigrette that was not overpowering, like some vinaigrettes can be. I loved the combination of flavors and was sure to find each piece of garlic to eat. I had to cut up some of the larger pieces of chicken, which tasted just like chicken from a home made meal. Only 320 calories.
The Grilled Chicken Pesto with Vegetables was made up of zucchini, spinach, chicken tenderloins, rotini pasta and topped with a basil pesto sauce. I have to admit that I’m a fan of pesto and all of the ingredients. Again, this meal didn’t fail. The texture was just perfect and it was something like I’d get at a fine restaurant. I’d like a little more spinach, though. Only 310 calories.
The price range is $2.75 – $3.50 per meal. You can find them at grocery stores and some of the big box stores. Follow @Healthy_Choice for more information and coupons. The Healthy Choice Facebook page has some great discussions going on and the team from Healthy Choice take your suggestions too.
