Feasters Subs BBQ Chicken

Nice and simple to cook. One minute, flip it over, another minute, done. The bread comes out seemingly soft and pillowy, and you think it’ll be good. Don’t trust it; it becomes rubbery and dry in your mouth once you start chewing. The two solitary chunks of chicken look quite sad in the bun, and… [Read More]

Tesco Meal For One Chicken Tikka Masala pilau rice bombay potato and onion bhaji

I was embarrassingly excited when I saw this in my local Tesco, on offer for £2 (down from £3.50). It’s so big and ambitious for something you throw in the microwave for a few minutes. Reminds me a bit of the Tesco Meal For One; Sweet & Sour, Chinese Chicken Curry (4 stars – not bad!). I had… [Read More]

Riya’s Chilli Chicken Ready Meal

I have rarely seen a ready meal that looks so different to the picture on the packet. The pic on the packet looks tasty, inviting, generously proportioned. The reality is somewhat different. The grey-brown sauce is not very pleasant in appearance or in taste, completely ruining the meal. Battered chicken is always a risky one… [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.  

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.

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!

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.

Mumtaz Chicken Tikka Masala

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.

Morrisons Chicken in Black Bean Sauce with Egg Fried Rice

Published on July 2nd, 2013

The onions are very lightly cooked and crunchy. Generous quantity of chicken, though it is on the dry/chewy side. The rice is a bit of an extra faff around, requiring watering mid heating. The end result means the rice is not dry, though the lifeless pieces of egg and peas don’t add anything to the… [Read More]
