Swansons Hungry Man TV Dinner – Chicken and Mashed Potatoes

March 17, 2005

Ronnie at the office often brings in a variety of TV dinners for lunch. He doesn’t seem to have any preference for any type of TV dinner whether it be a Healthy Choice TV Dinner, Lean Cuisine TV Dinner or the classic Swanson’s Hungry Man TV Dinner.

swanson hungry man tv dinner chicken and mashed potatoes

When it comes to TV Dinners though, Hungry Man is really the quintessential TV dinner. I mean what comes to mind when you purchase and consume a TV Dinner anyhow?

  • Apple cobbler desserts?
  • Convenience (i.e. laziness to cook)
  • Fried, Greasy pieces of meat (mystery or other varieties)
  • Being an absolute bum on the couch watching late night TV
  • 5 mins in the microwave for soggy food vs 45 mins in the oven for crispier chicken?

Hungry Man TV Dinners are all about large portions of food without any notions of being healthy. After all do ‘hungry men’ actually care about calories, carbs or fat intake?

Hungry Man TV Dinners – What about the taste?
Well unless you have a craving for stale airline food or like to eat meat with shards of ice crystals, you really can’t expect an ultra gourmet meal out of a Hungry Man TV Dinner. It’s just a quick fix to get you food while you veg in front of the TV.

TV Dinner Hungry man
This Hungry Man TV Dinner had 2 white meat chicken steaks with mashed potatoes, a side of corn and a chocolate brownie.

Except check out this brownie on this Hungry Man TV Dinner:

It’s got chunks of corn inside the brownie!!! What a sick joke by the people of Swansons.
Haha!!!! I Love it!!!

    What a terrible mess. Purchased you Bonesless fried chicken, Hungry
    Man Dinner. Chicken buries in mashed potatoes, so it never criped
    Brownie and corn mixed. Picture shows 3 large piece of chicken,
    however on 2 small pieces in box. Enough though for the garbabe
    can. Will never puchase Swanson’s again.

    Picture 3 reminds me of what food looks like after it has been eaten. In other words, it looks like someone has corn in their poop.

    i opened up my dinner and it was the most rotten taste ever. it was
    spoiled beyond belief. It was dated best before sept.2006 but was spoiled
    and bad.

  • Reply Mike November 16, 2005 at 10:06 pm

    The above comments sum it up nicely. you don’t get 3 pieces of chicken and the brownie looks like they scraped it off someones lawn! not very flavorful either. third piece of chicken probably got mixed in with the brownie. if it did I wouldn’t be able to taste the diffrence. I guess that’s what I get for not cooking dinner myself, huh?

    We had the Bar-B-Que chicken. It was too spicy and salty. Why do you always put corn as the veggie? This dinner made me so very sick to my stomach for days. Why don’t you make a Hungry Man/Woman dinner for dieters? People who are diabetic and with high blood pressure need to have dinners they can eat that are convenient for them as well with the amount your dinners have to offer. Brownie is a joke. We always have to spoon it our like pudding. Thank you.

    I like the sports beer battered with cheese fries. I don’t know about the other ones, but this one is good with a beer watching the game. Plus, they do give you the option of conventional oven cooking.

    I used to like eating tv dinners once in a while, they used to be of decent quality food. But I bought a hungry man dinner and well theres a bunch of corn mixed in with the brownie adn who the hell likes chocolate corn. Second the meat quality is not as good anymore, when I went to check on my food in the oven i went to flip the chicken and it broke in half and im like real meat doesnt just break apart like soggy bread. Waste of money!

  • Reply tabby May 21, 2006 at 1:29 am

    wow…some people are REALLY REALLY STUPID!!!for one i just have to clear up the part with the chicken…the box shows 2 pieces of chicken….one piece is cut to show the white meat…dumb asses..im sure they could package it with one cut…just so its less confusing..i guess some people need MORE then a picture!! anyways…as with everything, some are good..some are not so good…get over it…dont like it…get your lazy ass in the kitchen and cook!!!

  • Reply Alvis July 25, 2006 at 3:55 am

    Actually, there’s just two chicken steaks on the box, the second one’s had the end cut off and placed next to it. Also where the hell can get hold of these tasty looking treats in the uk?

    I have been a Swansons customer for 35 years and have always realized that it was a convenience first and foremost though I was always pleased with the product as a whole. In the past year, your quality control has sucked. I will NEVER buy one of your dinners if they have that @@#$#@ brownie in it! If it is in its little cubbyhole and if it does rise and not become 2 or 3 spoonfulls of pudding, it is impossible to get out the way your cleverly written instructions state. Sincerely, almost gone as a customer

    Today I opened my last Hungry Man. For months my wife has been sending me to work with these frozen dinners for my lunch but today I have had enough! Oce opened I found the brownie mixed with the mashed potatoes and the barbaque sauce in the brownie and yes the Corn in my brownie DID look like it had already been digested and pooped it out.
    This is not the first time this has happened to me but it WILL be the last.

    I’m not terribly shocked from some of the comments, but I just had a Hungry Man and it was edible. I actually enjoyed it. I’m not comparing it to anything great but it is enjoyable if you can overlook the fact that it is just a Hungry Man.

    I’m even surprised myself because I had one of the salisbury steak ones, with mashed potatoes, some green vegetables and some kick ass apple raspberry cobbler.

  • Reply Swansons current factory worker November 18, 2006 at 5:15 am

    Yes, I work at swansons and I can tell you everything. The company is union so the company can’t fire any lazy people. The meat placers don’t care about what the dinners look like. They don’t care if the meat looks as if it was bitten into. They don’t pay attention to the vegies in the brownies. I see half those dinners go out with veggies under the dessert. Other problems are. . .are you ready. . .blue plastic in the chicken, and the clear plastic not all the way sealed, ripped, or burned. I see that some employees never wash thier hands. The USDA is only there half the time, other wise he’s at another factory. I heard a rumor – a lady puked in the Pot Pie gravy mix. The line runs 200-300 trays/min. and they get paid 10-13/hour. I encorge people to call and complain because it is a really bad factory to work and I fell sorry for those people who do get dinners like this. I’m only one worker and can’t change everything myself. P.s. the beer batter chicken might make you sick because they stick together going though the oven thus not cooking all the way.

    I purchased two very expensive meat loaf dinners yesterday for my son and myself. No wonder they’re called HUNGRY MAN: The food is awful and nor do you get what they represent on the package!!! Yes, we had meat loaf, but, with each piece I had, the other was in my sons dinner!!! They give you half a meat patty on each of the three patties. The worst part, after being disappointed with the meat, the flavor was as if I had gravy on the box!! Will never purchase again. I wonder why they don’t offer your money back if not satisfied?

    Dudes, this guy isn’t the spokesman of Swansons. If you want to complain to them directly, direct your “Your product tastes like blah blah blah” messages to Swansons. This is just a review of the dinner by somebody not affiliated with them!

    That said, the fried chicken dinners with a brownie were my ultimate comfort foods when I was little. My mother thought I was crazy. Looking back… um, I guess I was for eating those things, but the brownie was really tasty, at least.

    I purchased your Swans Hungary Man Chicken Dinner, and I will tell you it was such a mess inside, the Brownie had melted and was all over the chicken and the potatoes, the only edible thing in the whole tray was the corn. Why don’t you put a cover over the desert. Also why did it run all over was it thawed and refrozen, did the store receive it in a thawed condition and refroze it or why had the chocolate brownie melted and run over the complete top. I am very disgusted, paid a lot for this dinner need to report for safety sake, maybe it was thawed and the desert melted and ran over everything and then it was re frozen in that state. I wonder how safe this food is and does the public know if items are refrozen. Very concerned.

    I thought I was doing something good when I purchased a dinner but it turned out to be the biggest mistake I have ever made. I purchased a bar-b-que with mashed potatoes corn and a brownie. What an awful mess. The brownie was mixed in with corn and mashed potatoes and it tasted like it was burned, the meat, like rubber, the corn and mashed potatoes taste as if was old and dry. No thanks hungry man, ever time I see your commercial, I share it with my friends.

  • Reply Stretch Carter March 30, 2007 at 9:15 am

    Hungry Man!!! Yep, thats what I was when I got done eating it. My wife saw the commericals and decided to buy them for my lunches. What kind of a person gets filled up on just one of those? I don’t know, maybe I’m a mutant or something, but one pound of anything isn’t going to put a dent in my hunger (even when I’m not all that hungry). Maybe they should follow Gary Larson’s lead from The Far Side and come up with a Glutton Man meal……. They’d have to send me a whole bunch of coupons…… I could easily do three if not four of those meals and not think anything about it…… I will admit though, corn wasn’t in my brownie, and besides the hefty salty taste, it was pretty decent tasting (just not nearly enough food)…

  • Reply Donna Lee Cochrane April 4, 2007 at 2:13 am

I buy their meals all the time & I have never had corn in my brownie, nor does the brownie get all over my other food…probably because I read the directions on the box! If you don’t like Hungry Man then don’t buy it. Also, that’s two pieces of chicken you idiots!

I couldnt even eat any of them, and wasted all of my money. I always buy these tv dinners, and NEVER seen them like this before. How did these 5 boxes get mixed up in one piece ?

    I haven’t had a Hungry Man until recently ( several months) and every single one of the dinners (turkey & chicken breast) seemed to be defrosted at some point then refrozen. I must say i bought these dinners on and off for many years, and i don’t recall them beinf as bad as they are now. About 3 weeks ago i got deathly sick from eating a hungry man and i promised myself i’d never purchase another one. Well, being me, i gave them another chance. At this very moment i have a turkey dinner that i heated up, even though the food is scattered about. Corn in desert, gravy leaking out sides of dinner and on potatoes (gee i think the company can put a bit more mash potato in the dinners, but back to my problem. i tasted the dinner and it had the most awful taste. So, me being me, said maybe it’s just the gravy. So i tried the potato desert and no kidding, it was terrible.That was the last straw i am so afraid of getting deathly sick again from eating these dinners I don’t understand how these dinners get in the condition they get in. Could be when they leave the factory the flimsy plastic covering loosens so when packaging it flies over the other food. I must say it isn’t very appealing to the eye, like the box shows us, but more importantly who wanrs to get so sick u want to die from eating something ? I always used these dinners as i was cooking dinner to hold me off till my dinner was cooked, and my child liked them also. But for the last several months i am getting more and more disillousioned about this company getting their act together. I’m really disappointed cause the taste wasn’t bad years ago, and it did work for me as more a snack than a dinner. I’m sure i will not buy them anytime soon, but after a while i just might try them again. Maybe i’m a glutton for punishment, i really don’t know lol..ty for listening, and plz plz Hungry Man take more care in the making and the refrigeration of the dinners. I’m sure you don’t want loads of sick people on your hands.

    I can’t get onto the Hungry man web site to compain, so maybe this will help.
    I just tried to eat a hungry man beef pot roast dinner. This is one of the worst meals I have ever tried to eat. Microwaving it as per instructions, the brownie was still all liquid. Another half minute almost had it done. The beef was so tough there was no way I could chew it. The veggies were still almost like raw. Even with the rediculous amount of salt, there was hardly any taste at all. The tiny amount of mashed potatoes were at least edible, but not tasty. The brownie was more like a pudding, but at least had a little taste to it. At least my dogs got some chewing exercise from the beef that I couldn’t eat.

    Swanson, as a “leader” in the field could and should try and clean-up their act…kinda hard to do because of all of the money they keep taking to the bank! Coupons?…WHAT THE HELL??? Pay the full price for that delicious under-cooked/frozen/re-thawed/re-frozen delight!

    I just heated up a second Hungryman Country Fried Beef Patties. The grave is the same in both of these and it’s not like the heavy gravy you get in a regular restaraunt. It is more like soup or water. I thought that the first time I heated one up, I may have made a mistake in reading the instructions for microwave. But I was careful the second time and the gravy is the same, very watery.
    Is this the way it is suppose to be?

Also, is the only dessert you have “brownies”… Well, you can be assured that you have lost a customer who used to buy several of your meals each month. No more, I can assure you.

    After having read the comments about Hungry Man Dinners both pro & con I have these comments:
    I’ve been eating tv dinners for approximately 45 yrs and con honestly say that the Hungry Man Turkey Dinner is the best turkey dinner on the market. I also enjoy the Salsbury Steak and also the Chicken dinners. As to the presence of, or mixing of the dinner components, it doesn’t take rocket science to figure out that probably all of this is due to careless handling during transportation after leaving the plant in a frozen state. At some point the dinners are becoming partially thawed, allowing jostling around to toss a few kernals of corn or green beans over into the dessert section next to it. They end up in frozen storage at a distribution center and are then transferred to the final sales point where it is transferred to the frozen food storage freezer and later to the display freezers. If thats not enough to shake up any brand of tv dinner then one can only assume then that its some vast left wing conspiracy!

I started with Kid Cuisine, moved on to Banquets, but graduated to the mother of all TV dinners: Hungry Man. The Turkey dinner is amazing, my first bite of the stuffing was easily a mental landmark, a highlight of my career. The beef steak patty, whatever it’s called, is some of the best meat I have ever tasted. And the brownies–well, nothing beats the brownies. Sure, as a brownie they’re great, but the real treat? Eating them frozen. Yep, before you put your delicious feast in the microwave, eat the brownie first. It is truly magnificent. I’ve had other dinner brownies and they just can’t compare to what Hungry Man brings to the table. If you want a great meal, look no further than Hungry Man.

    All of these comments kind of surprised me, because I’ve NEVER had a problem with the Hungry Man TV Dinners. Granted, it’s not the best food in the world, but it isn’t bad, either. The only thing different that I do is I NEVER, EVER microwave them. I always follow the oven instructions instead, because it just turns out better (and more palatable) that way.

    • Reply chad March 14, 2010 at 3:59 pm

      exactly. way better in the oven! i’ve never had a problem either…YAY =)

  • Reply chad March 14, 2010 at 3:56 pm

    i used to microwave these dinners a long time ago, and i had the same thing happen. i’d have overcooked and undercooked parts of the meal. i got rid of my microwave 3 years ago, and i’ve cooked them in a small toaster oven ever since. they always turn out amazing.
    but at work you don’t get enough time to put them in the oven. arrrgh.

    ROFL. I am disgusted that so many people regard this shit as food. It ain’t, its disgusting processed crap – in about 10-15 years you’re all gonna get colo-rectal cancer and weigh about 400lbs.

    Only in America.

    If there were a decent woman left in this world.. And those women know who they are most men wouldn’t need to work to death just to earn a crappy microwave dinner for themselves after a hard day of earning cash for a woththless wife. That said women.. Keep voting and earning new shoes and couches while the men keep eating poor food and serving up dollars for whiney lazy women.

  • Reply Dessert love September 16, 2010 at 11:19 am

    Just an FYI for those of you who complained the brownie was like pudding…if you read the box, the meal is actually supposed to come with chocolate pudding! What freaks me out is that the chocolate pudding cooks into something like a brownie. It’s like a Frankenstein hybrid.

    I used to love Hungry Man dinners until 15 minutes ago. I had the white meat roasted and carved turkey…the Turkey had disgusting spots and fat and mold on it!!! And before I saw that I took a big bite of mashed potato and it was chunky yet extremely watered down….like watery oatmeal…I threw it all up. Ugh!

  • Reply rayman February 14, 2012 at 9:15 am

    Hey Joe ! how the hell are ya ! Still eatin these sorry little bitch dinners, Check out marie callenders frozen meals they fill you up obese man.

  • Reply Criss June 7, 2012 at 10:07 pm

    I cannot believe that I am the only person in the world who actually likes a little corn cooked in the brownie…also,if you microwave the chicken meals for a few minutes then cook them in the oven til the chicken is crisp,it really improves the texture, plus you save 10 or so min of cooking time.These are not home cooked meals by any stretch,but when pressed for time ya cannot beat them for two bucks on sale.Cannot find the meals with cheese fries anymore,though.

  • Reply lonnie January 23, 2013 at 12:44 pm

    I kindly like these dinners and in access of reality they will fill man up,and Joe you can still wrap your lips around what rayman has for you! Enjoy Joe

    I was up one late night and was very hungry, all I had in my freezer was a “smokin backyard barbeque” hungry man. I decided to eat it so I put it in the oven for 30 minutes like it said then after it cooled I ate it. After 3 bites my stomach started hurting soo bad I wanted to vomit but I didn’t want to puke because then I would have to taste it again. It was the worste peice of garbage to ever be called “food” I don’t know how people eat these.

    The Hunger Mange’s dinners will lave you gaping for air over a ttoilet with buttholes on fire. Do not eat unless stranged in space or in Mauritania. Then eat.
