Costco Shoppers Are Loving This Organic Chicken Piccata

Everybody knows that Costco is a great place to snag deals on grocery items and stock up on household essentials. However, not everyone may be aware that their prepared and frozen foods section is also a great place to find quick, easy, and delicious pre-made meals for when you just want something ready-to-eat on hand. Costco's already-prepared meal offerings are a hit with many shoppers, and it seems like the wholesale grocery store has another winner with its Ventera Organics chicken piccata with pasta.

Each package contains an organic chicken breast that is buttered and seasoned with garlic, onion, paprika, and red and green bell peppers, per VSM Brands. This hearty, filling meal is perfect for days when you are short on time, or just aren't feeling up to cooking. The chicken is pre-cooked, and simply has to be thawed for 24 hours before being prepared.

Once the chicken piccata is thawed, heating and serving the dish takes less than ten minutes, and you can even prepare it in the microwave. But what are customers saying about the frozen meal?

The chicken piccata and pasta can also be heated together in one pan on the stovetop for around seven to eight minutes. If you want to add an extra-flavorful kick to the chicken, it can also be sauteed in oil for just one minute on each side. Not only is it easy to prepare, the meal is also a great source of protein. A five ounce serving contains 220 calories, a satisfying 19 grams of protein, and only 4 grams of sugar, according to VSM Brands. The ease, nutrition, and taste seem to be garnering vocal fans, too.

The fan account @costco_doesitagain posted on Instagram alerting their followers to the new item, writing: "#organic chicken piccata with pasta! $7.99." However, Costco shoppers should be aware that the chicken piccata is a weighted item, so the actual cost will vary depending on how large a quantity you want to purchase, and $7.99 per pound can add up if you are not paying attention. 

Fellow social media users replied with their own rave reviews of the chicken piccata. One follower said, "We got this last time we went. It is REALLY good!!!" Another excited shopper wrote, "I do love chicken piccata!" And with a meal that is organic, delicious, and easy to prepare — what's not to love?
