Pot Noodle Chicken & Mushroom

Ahhhh, the humble pot noodle. A classic. The epitome of student munch. We know it’s not haute cuisine. We know it’s not particularly healthy. But by golly, it’s a British institution, and it will continue to feed students long after Brexit does or doesn’t happen. As the name suggests, it’s a pot of noodles. The noodles… [Read More]

Feasters Premium Burger Flame Grilled Deluxe with Bacon & Cheese

This is that rarity of burger: it comes with everything. Most microwave burgers are missing some element – ketchup, or cheese, a bit of bite. This Feasters Premium burger has you covered. Not quite as sickly as the Double Stack Cheeseburger, although the bacon is predictably a little on the flabby side. It really needs… [Read More]

ASDA Tandoori Chicken Masala

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.  

Kohinoor Bombay Egg Curry cooking sauce

I saw this in Tesco and just had to give it a try. At £1.49, it’s a decent sized sauce that opens nicely from the packaging. No eggs in it, of course; you’ll have to hard-boil these yourself. The shelling is a bit of a pain but this isn’t pitched as a quick, easy meal! The… [Read More]

Riya’s Haryali Chicken Ready Meal

RRP of £3.30 is a little on the high side – would appreciate it more around the £2.50 mark. Plenty of chicken, and a tasty sauce, if over-generous with the salt. Looks very hearty and green – not spinach as you might expect, but coconut and mint (therefore quite mild too). Packaging a little annoying,… [Read More]

ASDA Slimzone BBQ Chicken with Sweet Potato & Butternut Crush

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.

Wat Kitchen Chicken in Chilli & Thai Basil sauce with Noodles

Expected this to be a pot noodle but actually needs microwaving. Opened the box to find two pouches, one of noodles and one of the chicken in sauce. Looked around in despair for some scissors but no need – the pouches are easy-tear. Noodles are satisfyingly chewy and thick. They’re coated in a sauce with… [Read More]

Rustlers Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Mayo

Nice and meaty chicken. Toasted bun is wonderful. Mayo gives it a good creaminess. Got it on offer – £1.05. Can’t go far wrong!

2 servings. Microwavable. Ring pull lid. Nice and easy. Bit of an odd cheese sauce – slightly unpleasant aftertaste. Still, I ate it all. Can’t have been that bad. And it went down very quickly despite it being two servings!  

Pot Pasta Creamy Carbonara

Remove the lid, disappointment – hardly anything in here! Add hot water, stir, leave for five whole minutes. Pleasantly surprised when I returned – the pasta comes out normal size! Sauce is deliciously thick and creamy for a “just add water” dish. Nice bacon flavour, though no visible bits. I wondered if there maybe wasn’t… [Read More]
