Bremer Alfredo Chicken + Bremer Garlic Chicken

If you want a quick, easy, one-pot dinner that has a mix of carbs, veggies, and protein, Aldi’s got you covered with two different Regular Buy skillet dinner entrees: Bremer Alfredo Chicken and Bremer Garlic Chicken.

These pasta and chicken skillet dinners are sold in 21-oz. bags in the freezer section at Aldi, and they retailed for $3.29 each at the time of publication. Each bag contains three servings.

Both dinners are made with white meat chicken and contain 0 grams of trans fat per serving. They contain milk, wheat, and soy.

These skillet meals should be kept frozen until ready to prepare, and they heat up in about 10 minutes or less with little effort. The sauce for each meal is frozen in small cubes and mixed in with the noodles, veggies, and meat, and it thaws and mixes with the food as the meal cooks.

The packaging offers two preparation methods: skillet or microwave. The instructions for both meals say to heat the food to a minimum temperature of 160 degrees.

To prepare in a skillet (which is how I heated our dinners), pour the packaged contents into a skillet. Cover and cook over medium high heat for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to blend ingredients.

To prepare in the microwave, pour contents of the package into a microwave-safe dish. Cover and microwave on high power for 7 minutes. Then keep covered and microwave on high power an additional 3 to 4 minutes.

Alfredo Chicken

This skillet meal is described on the packaging as “Pasta in an Alfredo Cheese Sauce with Broccoli, Carrots, Garden Peas and Seasoned White Meat Chicken.”

It contains 210 calories per serving, 2.5 grams of saturated fat (13% of your daily value), 450 mg of sodium (19% DV), 30 grams of total carbohydrates (10% DV), and 0 grams of sugars.

This meal has penne pasta noodles, and while it’s got plenty of veggies, it still has enough pasta that you feel like you’re getting a satisfying carb fix. The amount of chicken in this meal isn’t too bad either, although it’s definitely there in a smaller proportion compared to the noodles and veggies.

My family liked the flavors in this Alfredo Chicken meal slightly better than the Garlic Chicken meal below, although both are good. The Alfredo Chicken had less sauce, or perhaps it soaked up the sauce more than its Garlic Chicken counterpart, but that was not a deal breaker. While it’s a good meal, my family noted that making an alfredo dinner using some of Aldi’s jarred alfredo sauces is better.

Garlic Chicken

Bremer Garlic Chicken

This skillet meal is described on the package as “Pasta in a Garlic Sauce with Broccoli, Carrots, Corn and Seasoned White Meat Chicken.”

It contains 190 calories per serving, 1.5 grams of saturated fat (8% of your daily value), 400 mg of sodium (17% DV), 29 grams of total carbohydrates (10% DV), and 1 gram of sugar.

This meal uses rotini pasta, and it features a garlic sauce rather than alfredo sauce. This meal had more sauce overall compared to the Alfredo Chicken skillet meal. It tasted fine, but my family preferred the Alfredo Chicken slightly more over the Garlic Chicken. You can’t really go wrong with either meal, though.

Similar to the Alfredo Chicken, the Garlic Chicken has a nice ratio of noodles to veggies, offering plenty of carbs while still providing a decent serving of vegetables. My family noted that the carrot coins in the Garlic Chicken meal are huge and must have come from really large carrots. Just like with the Alfredo Chicken meal, the chicken in the Garlic Chicken meal is there in smaller quantities than the noodles and veggies, but it’s still perfectly fine.

The Verdict:

Aldi’s Bremer Alfredo Chicken and Bremer Garlic Chicken skillet meals offer a decent serving of veggies, don’t skimp too much on the meat, and still offer you a carbohydrate fix. These dinners heat up in 10 minutes or less on the stove top or in the microwave; just dump into a skillet or dish and heat. My family prefers alfredo dishes made with jarred alfredo sauces over the frozen Bremer Alfredo Chicken, but it’s still a solid meal, and both entrees are good if you’re short on time or energy and can’t make something from scratch.

  1. We were disappointed in the alfredo chicken as there was no sauce of any kind on this product. Pay a little more for a different brand and get one with sauce!

    • Kristina Marie Manwaren

      Had this with my family tonight and totally agree. We had no alfredo sauce at all. It was simply moist noodles, veggies and chicken.

  2. I purchased AlfredoChicken and there was only two pieces of chicken in the whole package. I have purchased this many other times and it was very good. The vegetables were awesome though. I’m sure this was just a fluke. It happens. Thank you for your time.

  3. We just had the Garlic Chicken. It was good, we both liked it. I did add some more chicken but it still had enough sauce. I would like to know if the calorie count on the back of the package includes the butter to cook it in?

    • The instructions don’t say to cook it in butter, so if you add butter, those are extra calories.

      • Apparently the new bags have been updated. The first step is now “Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a skillet.”

        • Based on the calorie and fat content of the butter it’s impossible this includes it. The butter itself says it has as much fat as the entire bag. I just made it with the recommended amount and it was too rich for my tastes, if I buy the garlic again I’ll be trying 2 tbsp. I prefer the three cheese chicken, no extra ingredients and while the sauce isn’t that prevalent, the mixture is flavored and feels lighter.

    • I really was woundering the same thing. If you dont add the butter it would cut the calories almost in half. Big difference if you are counting calories

  4. Bought this and there were two small pieces of chicken and barely any sauce. Will not again.

  5. In the Garlic Chicken there were 5 very small pieces of chicken and 2 small pieces of sauce. The rest were vegies which are very cheap. Will NOT buy this or the Alfredo Chicken again. Don’t waste your money!!!

  6. Did not care for the taste of the Chicken Penne Primavera dinner at all. I threw the whole thing in the trash can (and I hate wasting food). It had a very chemical taste- and as others have noted- very little sauce. Will not buy this again.

  7. Love the chicken Al Fredo and the Garlic chicken. I do add 1/3 cup water when I make it. I am not a big meat eater so this is perfect for me.

  8. Sharon Johnson

    Could you add this as a addition to chicken using the slow cooker?

  9. I had the Garlic chicken and added a small can of chicken to it with 3 tablespoons of butter small salad great meal.

  10. I loved bremer Alfredo chicken.every thing was delicious enough for 3 meals

  11. Got the Garlic Chicken one

    Easy, quick meal including veggies, pasta, chicken pieces & its own sauce. Everything is out of package all at once, there’s no separate pouches for ingredients or sauce. Just heat & eat!
    Fixed it on stovetop, real easy. Added in some more garlic, olive oil, S&P & a bit of Parm. Heavy on the veggies, especially broccoli. Lots of broccoli! A bit of chicken & a wee bit of pasta in the kit.

    Did need to add some precooked elbow pasta I had fixed a couple days before, to use up leftovers. This had already been sauced with a Parm/Garlic sauce. Which added to the overall garlicky flavor. But I love garlic, so no worries…lol

  12. the garlic chicken was fantastic. I liked it so much that I bought several more packages.

  13. Bremer has quality control issues. In my experience I’ve gotten few frozen sauce cubes and also cloudy frozen sauce cubes that make me think they are mostly water. The meals are good when they’re right, but seems like a screw up 5% of the time.
