About 2 mins in the microwave. Difficult to get out of packaging without scaling fingers – whole pouch gets hot! Verdict? “Tastes like Christmas”. Specifically, cinammon, cloves. Also cumin. Nice flavour. Mild. Goes well with a main course.
Bought this, reduced, and spontaneously, when I already had far too much in my shopping basket. Never go to ASDA when you’re hungry and you’ve just been paid. This would be a decent main course on its own, but I thought I’d have it as a side dish with my lasagne & salad. In a… [Read More]
Sausages are bland, bready and tasteless. The batter is a bit crunchy on top and doughy underneath. Disappointing.
I was so looking forward to this, when to my great disappointment I realised it does not come with microwave instructions. You have to oven bake it. Damn you, pesky wedges! Fine. I conceded to the packaging and followed the instructions like a schmuck: I removed the wedges and set them next to the chicken-in-plastic… [Read More]
First of all, the packaging passes the quality test: easy peel film. No faffing around with adding water or anything either – just heat for 3 mins, stir, heat for 3 mins, eat. Fibre 6g (recommend 30g per day), so eat five of these and you’re golden, except you’d then be at around 175% of… [Read More]
I currently live alone, so don’t often buy into these “Meal for 2” things… but when I found this on sale for £1.65 I had to give it a go. You get a generous portion of chicken korma and chicken tikka masala, as well as a large pilau rice, four onion bhajis and two naan… [Read More]
This frozen meal had been in my freezer a few weeks, and you know sometimes you just need a health food injection? I was craving some vegetables, and this is allegedly 2 of my 5 a day. It took quite a while in the microwave – about 10 minutes – but the instructions were simple… [Read More]
Quite spicy. Delicious, tender chicken – it has clearly been finished on the grill and has a lovely charred quality to it. There are about five pieces – which is about right for a ready meal. Nice big chunks of peppers. Quite a slow cooking time (6.5 mins). Combined with price and average portion size,… [Read More]
As you can see, very much on the oily side. Tasted nice enough though, and with a hint more smokiness than a chicken tikka masala would have had. The container is reusable as well as recyclable – you can store your leftovers in it with the resealable lid. Handy! Would have again.
Takes bloody ages in the microwave (15 mins from frozen). Incredibly, 3 of your 5 a day. Decent amount of chicken. BBQ sauce not too sweet as feared, actually pretty good! Only 290 calories per pack. I don’t know how they’ve managed it! Sweet potato and butternut squash a bit tasteless.
