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.  

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]

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]

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!  

Weight Watchers Lincolnshire Sausage & Root Vegetable Mash

Seriously impressive that this is under 300 calories. Portion size looks about the same as any microwave meal and it looks pretty tasty! The root vegetable mash is pretty good and the sausages have a nice processed texture to them, and the ingredients look good. But man alive, this gravy is watery and flavourless. Such… [Read More]

Hunger Breaks Hot Pots “Texas” Beef Chilli & Rice

Nice and convenient – microwaves in under two minutes, no difficult assembly. Long lasting. The meal is mostly sauce, with bits of rice and small fragments of mince in it. It’s very wet. You’ll use a spoon for this. The sauce itself has a spicy chilli kick. Tastes like a perfectly respectable chilli. Shame there’s… [Read More]

ASDA Lively Firecracker Chicken and Fragrant Rice

Only 3 pieces of chicken, though they’re big chunks. 1 of your five a day- that’s good. The sauce has quite a kick to it. And the rice isn’t particularly “fragrant”. Meh.

Chewy, hard base. 2 rashers of slightly flabby bacon. 1 sachet of ketchup. Easy and cheap. The bread is the real let-down here. 3*

Decent amount of chicken, but not overwhelming. Reasonably tender but I’ve had better. Quite oily, and a little on the expensive side. Tastes good and authentic, but a little overpriced for what it is.

These are a taste of my childhood*. * not really – we were too cheap for these – but THERE’S A CHEESE STRING!! We used to have cheese strings! Two wraps, four thin slices of chicken, a cheesestring and a squirt of BBQ sauce. It was quite a fun, nostalgic snack, and for £1.50 I… [Read More]
