Two whole chicken thighs – that’s impressive for a ready meal! The rice is very saucey, but it’s not overly tomatoey. It actually stops the meal from being too dry. Kinda salty, but tastes great. A bit pricey but good quality.£3.80 RRP. Around the £3.20 mark would be better.

Bloody hot – like every microwave lasagne in history. Be careful not to burn your mouth. Not bad flavour though. The white sauce has a slightly strange aftertaste (nutmeg?), but it’s not too off-putting. As you can see, I got it for a “sell this before the meat goes off” price of £1.12, which may… [Read More]
Sausages are bland, bready and tasteless. The batter is a bit crunchy on top and doughy underneath. Disappointing.
I did not give this dish an ounce of respect. Bought on offer for £1.75 (RRP £2.65), I flouted the “recommended” instructions of oven-cooking (who has 25-30 minutes to waste?). I settled for the suboptimal “microwave” experience (4-5 minutes), without wasting a plate. I even flouted the “pierce film lid” instructions and instead peeled the… [Read More]
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]
Lots of bits here – I feel like I’m assembling a lego set. And I also feel bad for the environment – all those sachets can’t be going anywhere good. After assembling my masterpiece, I took a big bite. The onions give a nice crunchiness that provide a contrast against the rubbery backdrop of the… [Read More]
Nice, simple instructions – 4 minutes in the microwave. Two things stand out for me: there’s quite a strong flavour of parsley (not a bad thing), and there’s plenty of chicken. Not sure if this is one of your five a day, but it feels healthy, and is 11% asparagus, with peas and other goodness packed… [Read More]
As usual, a nice, meaty burger with a creamy cheese offset by a tangy relish. Rustlers have a winning formula and they know it. 1m15s in the microwave and you’ve got a tasty snack – which is a bargain when bought on offer for £1. The relish is a little too tomato-y for me, and… [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]
