  • bit inconsistent

    3 out of 5

    have bought a few of these and found one to be quite nice, tasty and not dry, and the other seemed dry and lacking in flavour. Portion size was ok, but could be slightly bigger – maybe bulk up with veg.


  • Dry and not a fair portion

    2.5 out of 5

    My chicken as I feel must be with others as well, was dry and harder to cut through and not a fair portion size for what you pay. It looks great on the box but inside is a disappointment. I won’t buy again, not even on special.


  • Average at best

    1.5 out of 5

    My husband used to buy these regularly for the freezer when he was working shift work. Unfortunately the size and the quality has severely deteriorated over the years. I wouldn’t waste my money on these anymore


  • This is perfect......?

    3.5 out of 5

    Yes this is great, my elderly mother get them every week. As there is only to cook for, she likes the price also. She reckon that it cheaper in the long run, if she had to buy each veg and meat it would cost more.


  • Horrific

    2 out of 5

    We bought three of these. Although one was okay and tasted nice the other 2 had manufacturing defects and the meat was raw – total disgrace!


  • Handy for a quick meal.

    3.5 out of 5

    Buy this when on special for my older sons to either take to work or when they get in late. Have tried tried this one, not really happy with the chicken as it taste bland.


  • Good for work

    3.5 out of 5

    I take this in to work when I do not have time to meal do any prep. It tastes nice and has flavor to it.


  • Not good

    1 out of 5

    I have no problem with frozen meals occasionally but I really didn’t enjoy this one. I’m not a big fan of the brand either so that is maybe why I don’t like it. It tastes like a frozen meat and I think these meals are for lazy people or very busy ones. I will definitely not buy it ever again.


  • Great easy alternative

    3.5 out of 5

    My husband and I like these as an easy alternative on a busy night. They actually taste quite yummy and I am really impressed with taste and texture of the chicken as some frozen chicken meals can be a bit hit and miss. Will definitely eat again.


  • this is fantastic

    1.5 out of 5

    loved it easy to microwave and then eat. yum.


  • Pub Meal at home

    3.5 out of 5

    Great quick dinner, my go to Friday night no cook dinner. Its like having a pub meal, but you dont even have to leave your house


  • Hubbies go to

    5 out of 5

    My partner love this stuff. It’s his number 1 item to go on his list. Every day after work when he walks through our door he puts one in the microwave and of course fights our girls for it lol


  • Quick and easy

    3 out of 5

    This is a simple easy meal that everyone in the family can enjoy on those nights where there isn’t enough time to cook dinner you’re just too exhausted


  • It wasnt the best

    3 out of 5

    This product is great for a quick meal. I added home made chips and salad with it. It definity a great subsitute for the real pub meal.


  • Frozen meal

    0.5 out of 5

    I thought it had no taste and the portion size would only have feed a small child not a fully grown adult and the taste was terrible


  • Great on the go meal

    3 out of 5

    It was really quite nice for a microwave meals. One of the best I have had actually. So easy to cook in the microwave which is great when traveling and stopping for the night instead of paying pub prices.


  • Quick convenience

    4 out of 5

    For a frozen quick convenience meal this is nice, not as nice as a home cooked meal still


  • I prefer homemade

    2 out of 5

    I have to apologise but I prefer to homemade parmagiama or even better a pub one. I guess it’s good for the convenience but I personally wasn’t a big fan.


  • Loveeee

    5 out of 5

    I absolutely love this product. They are easy for a quick and lazy dinner but still absolutely delicious. I always have a few of these in my freezer.


  • tv dinners are gross

    3 out of 5

    for a tv dinner which usually are gross the parmagiana is one of the nicer ones that ive tried I thought the flavour was lovely and it filled me up


  • Very nice

    3.5 out of 5

    Tasty meal! This product is very convenient to keep in the back of the fridge for a quick, last minute dinner or for my children to make themselves.


  • Good for lunches

    3.5 out of 5

    It was great for a quick lunch at work


  • So good

    3.5 out of 5

    Really good for when your not in the mood to cook anything!


  • nice and cheesy

    5 out of 5

    the ammount of cheese was creamy to the mouth and the tenderness of the breast was combined well in every mouthful.I totally enjoyed this as did my kids and others at dinner that evening


  • Tum tum

    3.5 out of 5

    I didn’t really enjoy this product much. I don’t think it was as good as it was made out to be. Didn’t have much flavour


  • Always keep spares in freezer for when I'm short of time

    4.5 out of 5

    When it gets late & I havn’t planned ahead, these Parmies are tasty, easy, quick and solve the hunger problem for one, I always keep some in freezer for these busy times.


  • Easy quick fix

    3.5 out of 5

    Quick and easy when In the run. Tastes alright although the chicken cooks a little soggy.


  • It was ok but not the greatest

    1.5 out of 5

    It was very bland. Not much flavour at all but it was quick to whip up


  • soggy

    2 out of 5

    this dinner didn’t work out too great for me. I finish work very late on Fridays and this was a quick choice but tasted SOGGY. I only really ate the potatoes


  • For convenience

    2.5 out of 5

    I thaught this was bland but it was quick and convenient for a busy night. Easy dinner.


  • Winner winner chicken dinner

    3.5 out of 5

    When time is short and you have had a long day MCcain chicken parmigiana is a delicious and comforting dinner.I love dipping the crispy potatoes in the parmigiana sauce.


  • Ok compared to other brands

    2.5 out of 5

    Better than other brands but still dry for my kids or for adults and the price is a but expensive. At least it’s tasty if you eat it fresh.


  • Not again

    0.5 out of 5

    The image on the box looks so appealing that i thought I’d try it. I was so disappointed. Veggies were so bland and dismal and the dish overall was underwhelming


  • Not yummy

    1.5 out of 5

    The packaging makes this dinner look really yum. The end product is far from a mouth watering meal. Good for a convenient dinner, but they are expensive, the veg are tasteless.


  • Big portion for the price

    4 out of 5

    Tried this the other day as it was on sale. The chicken tasted much better than expected and it also comes with 3 servings of veggies. Not bad for a balanced meal when hou are busy.


  • Yummy

    4 out of 5

    It’s very nice an big meal


  • Perfect Meal When Life Gets So Busy

    3.5 out of 5

    If there is a 4 or 5 star rating then I will give it a go. McCain Dinner Chicken Parmagiana Meals are truly delicious, great taste and quality of ingredients, plus value for money (especially when on sale for 1/2 price) and greatly satisfying.
    A whole meal with a good selection of vegetables.


  • Quick and easy

    3 out of 5

    If you’re time poor then this dinner will serve u well. Quick and easy to heat up and also gives u a dose of veggies


  • Quick and easy

    4 out of 5

    It’s a great TV dinner just pop it in the oven and its ready in 10 minutes prefer the portion of the Parma to be bigger and the vegetables are lacking but overall good.


  • Did the job

    2.5 out of 5

    As for a frozen meal it wasn’t perfect but gave my partner and I dinner while the kids stayed at there grandparents. I would buy this again!!


  • Hubby enjoys these

    3.5 out of 5

    My hubby enjoys these, and on occasion so do it. It differs how long you put in the microwave and where in the microwave you put it. But all in all, for a cheat meal, its ok. Only pick them up when on special as they work out expensive,


  • For a frozen meal its alright

    2.5 out of 5

    It tastes ok and is quick and easy. It helps when meat hasn’t fully defrosted to put on a quick and filling meal for the kids or myself


  • Definitely worth trying

    3.5 out of 5

    I enjoyed the chicken parmy, the veggies we still fresh but the chicken, although not super fresh, it wasn’t as hard as chicken nuggets. It is certainly a meal for a cheat night, not something you would eat every night. I would add to my trolley again to have a quick meal in the freezer for sure.


  • Love it

    4.5 out of 5

    Love it taste and easy to go to after a long day with 3 kids


  • Not bad for a lazy meal

    3 out of 5

    A effectless lazy meal.


  • Tasty

    3 out of 5

    Whilst not overly sized the taste was more than adequate. A good old fashioned meal already made up for you. Best – no cooking.


  • Handy

    2.5 out of 5

    Handy
    Sufficient meal size
    It is what it is


  • Easy and tasty

    2.5 out of 5

    I’ve found this to be a hit and miss the few times I’ve purchased it. The first time I tried it I loved it.the sizing was perfect and it was very tasty. The second time the sizing was disappointing with toppings and it had the veggies as 3/4 of the meal. Chicken was small and dry. I did try it again and it was good again.


  • Delicious

    4.5 out of 5

    It’s delicious and and the chicken is tender the sauce is superb .good quality with affordable price .


  • Awful

    1.5 out of 5

    Even though this was a cheap meal and very convenient because you can cook it up really fast it was just an awful frozen dinner. No taste, the chicken wasn’t right. The veggies were rubbery. In the same time I could have cooked up an omelette. Will not buy this again.


  • Fast and easy

    3.5 out of 5

    It’s healthy portion size and healthy food ready to heat n eat. Add some fresh cracked pepper and pink sea salt and it’s a tasty meal.


  • handy meal

    3 out of 5

    This was handy to have in the freezer for when you need a quick and easy meal. Unfortunately it wasn’t that great but not completely awful either.


  • Fast dinner

    3.5 out of 5

    I personally always have some foe those nights I get home from work. I didn’t mind the chicken it tasted nice but the veg were like cardboard. Kid thought it stunk.


  • Terrible

    2 out of 5

    I would describe it as eating cardboard I really didn’t enjoy eating this meal and will never buy again it looked nice on the picture on the packet. It was dried out and not moist at all.


  • Dinner without the work

    3.5 out of 5

    Brought this for dinner was not expecting much to be honest but was pleasantly surprised the chicken was moist not dried out the sauce was the right amount and not to spicy and the vegies were right all in all a perfect meal without the work


  • soggy

    1 out of 5

    quick and convenient but soggy and tasteless, my kids coated in tomato sauce to give some flavour. other meals are better, so will not buy this one again


  • Not so tasty

    2.5 out of 5

    Fast, relatively healthy but soggy and not tasty. Good if you’re hungry and too tired to cook a proper dinner and don’t want to clean up


  • Sooooo Good

    3.5 out of 5

    I really enjoyed it. The flavours were great. My very picky daughter even loved it and helped me eat it.
    Will definitely be buying this again ????


  • Tasteless

    1 out of 5

    When I put that in my trolley I was sp excited to have a leave from cooking but alas I had to cook something else for my family.


  • Look better than they taste

    1 out of 5

    I purchased this product to try it as an easy to prepare meal for my elderly father. I wanted to try it first for ease of preparation and of course taste. Whilst it was easy enough y oh just heat it, it definitely failed on taste and texture. I will not be purchasing this product again and would not recommend it.


  • Quick and wasy

    3 out of 5

    Looking for a Quick and healthy meal, McCains chicken parmagiana dinner is a great choice, great taste and lots of flavours. Prefect for any night where youbdont want to cook


  • Pretty average

    2.5 out of 5

    Soggy, not very much flavour and basically inedible. Certainly wouldn’t recommend it at all. A lot of there other meals are much better than this one.


  • Great addition

    3.5 out of 5

    This was great to have in the freezer when the kids where at school


  • GREAT FOR BOATING

    3 out of 5

    We buy this frozen meal when we go out on the boat and it is quick to heat up in the microwave without too much fuss. I have eaten worse, not the greatest but quenches the hunger pangs.


  • Arrgh McCains

    3.5 out of 5

    For a frozen dinner this one is pretty good .. I work nights in a servo and this is often my go to … give it a go , I’ve had a lot worse


  • Yuk

    0.5 out of 5

    Sorry tried this but chicken tastes fake and the veggies were awful. Ended up throwing it away and going hungry at work. Won’t buy again.


  • Pretty good

    3.5 out of 5

    I actually really liked it. I thought it would be like cardboard. The chicken is very processed but it still tasted really nice. Highly reccomend.


  • Was pretty good

    4 out of 5

    I wouldn’t recommend prepared, ready made mealsas an every day option. But they are handy to have when you’re running late or running out of time. This was pretty tastey, easy to prepare, quick….I was impressed


  • eat if you have not planned for dinner...

    2.5 out of 5

    Eat this if you have not planned for dinner, it’s an alternative for those days that you came home late or don’t have enough ingredients to prepare a full meal.


  • Chicken

    3 out of 5

    It’s okay,when cooked the chicken is moist but the chicken part is very processed, it tastes better when I make a sandwich out of the meal. I must say enjoy it a whole lot more as a sandwich


  • Fake chicken

    2.5 out of 5

    I have brought this meal for nights when it is only myself to look after and honestly the chicken is the over processed type that has no proper texture. Wouldn’t recommend


  • Okay

    3 out of 5

    This was okay portion is a bit too small for my liking and some of the vegetables taste like rubber


  • Fills you up

    4 out of 5

    It has some flavour and is ok to eat but not great like home made. I found it fine when hot but as it cools things get a little tough. It will fill you up and is very quick and easy to eat.


  • Not very tasty

    2 out of 5

    Chicken was dry and sauce not great


  • Tasty, delicious and a good size serve

    4 out of 5

    The meal was really tasty and there was plenty of it to enjoy. Veggies tasted quite pleasant but the champion of the dish was the chicken parmagiana which was very tasty and very filling. I will purchase this again for when I am at a meeting or unable to cook for my husband.


  • I love microwave dinners

    4 out of 5

    Love love love these! they do have a funny taste but I really like it. They are super quick and easy to cook especially if your short for time


  • Ok product

    3 out of 5

    I’m not sure about the taste of this product . Not one of my favourite dinners I did purchase as a quick easy dinner.


  • Quick and Easy when you dn't have time

    3.5 out of 5

    This is really a quick fix when you are late home from work and don’t have time. If you are after a real parmi this probably won’t satisfy, but it is easy to use and tastes okay.


  • It’s the only one

    5 out of 5

    This is actually the only microwave dinner I actually like. When it’s on special I stock up. When I want an easy night for dinner all I have to do is pull it out of the freezer and put it in the microwave. Easy as 1, 2, 3


  • Not bad at all

    3 out of 5

    I thought this product wasn’t to bad for a frozen meal was decent sized and tasted quite nice, one thing is that they could of added more sauce.


  • Quick & easy for busy nights!

    3.5 out of 5

    My partner is a big fan
    These are so handy for nights
    When we are too busy & tired
    To cook!
    But dont want to eat unhealthy junk food!


  • OK

    3 out of 5

    Personally I think it needed more cheese on it.
    Beans would have been a better option than peas.
    The topping was tasty but it eradicated the flavour of the chicken.
    There is better brands


  • Edible

    2.5 out of 5

    I don’t like frozen meals but tried one recently at a friend’s house for lunch and personally I would not buy but it was edible. The veggies were nice.


  • Not the best

    2 out of 5

    A bit salty for my liking and chicken didn’t taste like chicken


  • Very yummy

    3.5 out of 5

    Was yummy but chicken was kinda soggy


  • Quick easy meal

    3.5 out of 5

    Really enjoyed this quick easy meal…… vegetables were nice, sauce was tasty, chicken was rather like a pattie than “real” breast but would definitely buy again


  • its ok but not great

    2.5 out of 5

    average good enough to eat tastes ok but no great


  • I used to eat this everyday

    5 out of 5

    I used to eat this everyday when I was studying for my HSC.
    It’s just so yummy and easy and was enough to keep me going through late night study sessions.


  • not impressed

    2.5 out of 5

    I found that the chicken lacked flavour and the rest was soft and mushy. Not something I’d buy again. The picture on the front looks better than what is inside the box.


  • Parma had a nice flavor

    3 out of 5

    The potaotes weren’t very nice to soft


  • The chickens soggy and not good for health

    1.5 out of 5

    The chicken was very soggy upon heating, although the taste was good, yet health wise, these kinda frozen cooked foods are a strict no no, also its full of preservatives


  • Great for a quick fix

    2.5 out of 5

    Decent product for a quick fix and to fill up a family. We have these when I am too tired to cook and I know the kids will get veggies and a meal they enjoy!


  • Great for a quick fix

    2.5 out of 5

    Decent product for a quick fix


  • Handy Meal

    3 out of 5

    There are times when a handy and convenient meal is needed for a hungry tummy. McCain have a good range of these type of meals. This chicken meal has a good flavour.


  • It’s an alright meal

    2.5 out of 5

    This meal is alright if you need something for dinner and you don’t have the time, I found the veggies in it aren’t great though


  • Nope

    0.5 out of 5

    Had these for a quick dinner and it went into the bin and we had a toasted cheese sandwich instead. Its just not very nice at all. Following instructions it was like rubber coated in breadcrumbs and yuck! Never again.


  • Satisfactory for a quick meal

    3.5 out of 5

    Taste is fine no complaints with that.
    But it’s a bit on the small side. Also follow the heating instructions to a t. If you over do it it will Be a bit dry. Over all, it’s not a bad product but you might need two serves to feel satisfied


  • Convenience only

    2.5 out of 5

    These are fine for convenience but I find that the meat comes out very chewy and dry and the veggies very watery. I am not a fan on the flavour or texture. Very quick to make though


  • Quick and easy

    3.5 out of 5

    These meals are great for if you are in a hurry or need a lazy night in front of the tv. They aren’t the best meals but they are edible and there is next to no washing up


  • It’s a no from me

    2 out of 5

    I tried this parmigiana because it was on sale, and I wish I didn’t. It lacked flavour and felt really chewy to me. Maybe I got a dud one, but I won’t be buying again


  • Reasonable frozen option

    3.5 out of 5

    Had this tonight a reasonable frozen version ok for those busy days and it’s a bit more substantial than a meat and rice frozen meal


  • Good for one the go!

    3 out of 5

    Quick and easy. Very filling. Would definitely recommend this product if you need something quick. Perfect for taking to work. Little to no mess when you have finished!


  • Quick and easy

    4.5 out of 5

    Quick and easy meal. Just heat and serve. Tastes like real chicken and is just enough to fill you up.
    Can also add veggies/ salad on the side .
    Always on special. Great value


  • Trusty and quick meal

    4 out of 5

    Reminds me of my uni days, I don’t mind this for a quick meal especially when it’s on special. It’s well balanced in flavour and has just enough vegetables to the size of the parmigiana.


  • Perfect for the fakeaway

    4.5 out of 5

    Everyone loves. Good Parma and this product rates right up there with great pub grub – if your looking for takeaway at home – ding this one and you won’t be disappointed


  • Wasn’t happy

    0.5 out of 5

    I wasn’t happy with these meals.
    I understand they are for those who can’t cook or want something fast but I found the chicken rubbery and chewy. Was not happy


  • Good

    5 out of 5

    The McCain dinner Chicken parmagiana is good for people who don’t have time to cook. I use to eat them (McCains) after my dance class as we finshed late and i didn’t want to cook


  • Convenient

    4 out of 5

    I certainly like McCain’s chicken parmagiana chicken dinner as a quick and convenient meal. I must admit I do like home made better but this takes so much work out of making dinner that it’s totally worth it.


  • A regular once upon a time

    4 out of 5

    When I first moved out of home, I bought these instant dinners all the time. They’re pretty good and better then noodles or toast. Yummy


  • Easy meal

    2.5 out of 5

    A quick meal to pull out of the freezer when your fridge is empty or you are in a rush. With plenty of vegetables and a decent sized piece of chicken this meal is satisfactory at meeting my nutrition requirements.


  • Parm

    1.5 out of 5

    Ok for a frozen meal but fresh is best


  • Not a fan

    1.5 out of 5

    Wasn’t a fan of this one. The chicken was rubbery and didn’t heat well. Much better options on the market these days for better value
