One of the biggest breakthroughs in TV dinners has arrived on the shelves of the frozen aisle at Giant in Bethesda: Hungry-Man Boneless Fried Chicken and Waffles.

Yes, it has real waffles, not some kind of deconstructed substitute. And the waffles have real maple syrup already applied, no separate syrup cup to remove, heat in a cup of microwaved water or any of that usual rigmarole when it comes to special sauces, gravies and toppings for frozen dinners. I don't mean they just have a baked-in flavor. They are actually sitting in maple syrup in the tray, with the fried chicken patties on top of them.

Homestyle mashed potatoes and a cranberry-apple dessert round out the meal, which is surprisingly low in fat given the type of food we're talking about here - fried chicken is fried, after all.

How does it taste? Watch my thorough review to find out!

Westbard, the foodie mecca. Mickey Dees and TV dinners from the 7-11. LOL.

And you don't even have to buy your syrup separately.

Your review was generous.

This isn't the sort of thing you make in the microwave but they didn't have instructions for a standard oven. This probably explains the heating issue with the cold potatoes and tough food. The chicken was more breading than meat and the waffle was just not tasty.

Hungry Man should pay you for your encouraging words. Personally, I was disappointed.
