OMAHA — ConAgra Foods Inc. is introducing a new line of steamed entrees to the Healthy Choice brand.
“This new line provides consumers with an honest-to-goodness meal,” said Jonathan Gray, manager of research and development at ConAgra Foods. “You can see the difference as soon as you pick up the tray — the meals are bursting with vibrant vegetables that are frozen at the peak of freshness and hearty pieces of chicken and even shrimp. Unlike other frozen meals, the clear plastic meal tray and unique steaming film allows consumers to see every ingredient before steam-cooking in the microwave. The vegetables are bright and crispy, the meat is tender and the sauce adds a zest that will freshen up any boring meal routine.”
The new line features varieties such as Sesame Glazed Chicken, Garlic Herb Shrimp, Lemon Herb Chicken, Honey Balsamic Chicken, Chicken Romano Fresca, Rosemary Chicken & Sweet Potatoes, Portabella Parmesan Risotto and Roasted Chicken Verde. The products will be available in grocery stores beginning in September for a suggested retail price of $2 to $2.79.
