Hillshire Farm Review

When I think of Hillshire Farm, I usually think of the summer sausages, kielbasas and lunch meat. I never thought about chicken – until now! I’ve been introduced to Hillshire Farm’s grilled chicken breast and now have a new favorite “go to” for quick lunches and dinners.

I was sent the Italian Style Grilled Chicken Breast product for review. When I received the product I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the product is fully cooked, and only takes about 60 seconds in the microwave to heat up. I was also happy that each chicken breast was individually packaged and sealed, so I didn’t have to feel bad about opening the package for only one piece. I decided to try the chicken during one of our busier days at home – a Tuesday school day. I quickly heated up a chicken breast for my son, who wanted it cut up with strawberries. I also chopped up a cold breast to put on top of both my and my husband’s salads – the perfect portion size for a lunch salad. Quick, easy and delicious – can’t get better than that! The Italian seasoning is just enough to add a little kick to the chicken breast. Not overpowering by any means. And each breast is only 120 calories, so I felt good about eating and serving the chicken to my family.

Around since 1934, Hillshire Farm has kept up with the times. Hillshire Farm now offers a variety of products for the health-conscious consumer. From lean lunch meats, to grilled chicken, to low fat turkey links, there’s a variety of choices and flavors for every palate. They also still offer their old favorites like smoked sausages and cocktail links.

You can see the full line of Hillshire Farm products on their website, where you can also find great recipes using Hillshire Farm products.
