Morrisons Chicken in Black Bean Sauce with Egg Fried Rice

02 July 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]

Morrisons Chicken with Leeks, Bacon and Roast Potatoes

30 June 2013

Disappointed that there wasn’t a microwave option. But, I suppose it was all for the best- the resulting roast potatoes are crispy, flavoursome and complement the meal well. There are a lot of potatoes, more so than it first appears, so this is quite a filling meal. The chicken breast is a nice size and… [Read More]

Kerry Foods Made For You Piri Piri Chicken with Spicy Potato Wedges

22 June 2013

The piri piri sauce has a really nice flavour- a sort of sweet, Jamaican style spicy sauce that isn’t anywhere near as tomatoey as it appears. It’s similar to a BBQ sauce, but not as sweet or artificial tasting. Plenty of green chillies garnish the potato wedges and make this a hot and quite difficult… [Read More]

Morrisons Malaysian Chicken Curry with Jasmine Rice

26 April 2013

Gorgeous aromatic spices permeate the entire meal. Really, really tasty. I love the fresh coriander garnished on the top. The chicken is tender and succulent, although there isn’t quite enough of it. The jasmine rice is as sticky and gorgeous as promised. A delicate combination of flavours that comes together beautifully. It’s just a shame… [Read More]

Iceland Chinese Chicken with Noodles

02 March 2013

Tasty noodles, nice and eggy. Tasty sauce- has a subtle ginger and garlic flavour and a nice spicy kick of chili. The sauce has been artificially thickened, like in many Chinese restaurants. Plenty of chicken, which is soft and tender. The only downside is the pretty poor packaging and fairly slow cooking time.

Vitasia Chicken Chop Suey

26 February 2013

The first mouthful was underwhelming, but this was one of those meals that grew better with time. I didn’t trust a tin that lists “chicken fat” as one of its ingredients, but the end result is quite a rich and tasty sauce! As you can see from the picture, this is a big portion size,… [Read More]

Iceland Chicken Tikka Lasagne

23 February 2013

Flavourless, filling food. This gives chicken tikka a bad name- the tiniest bits of chicken, with a hot, spicy kick. The lasagne itself is ok- fairly rich and creamy. The chicken tikka combination isn’t unpleasant, or even weird, just underwhelming. Still, not bad for £1.

Princes Chicken Curry With Rice

01 November 2012

I really didn’t trust this one- a complete chicken curry and rice meal, ready to eat in less than two minutes in the microwave, with a year long shelf life and no need to keep in the fridge. I mean, it’s BRILLIANT, but I just don’t trust it. Awesome fridge-space-saving practicalities aside, there’s an unpleasant… [Read More]

Sainsbury’s Chicken Laksa Soup

02 September 2012

Really gorgeous thai curry smell. Don’t let the word “soup” fool you- I tried eating this with a spoon and struggled! This is principally a noodle dish and you’ll need chopsticks or a fork. Lovely, clearly fresh ingredients, healthy stuff, one of your five a day. The sauce is just creamy enough, and has a… [Read More]

Heritage Chicken in Black Bean Sauce with Egg Fried Rice

27 April 2012

Very salty- the sauce was a struggle to eat here. Apalling packaging. This is one of those ready meals that has two layers of film, none of which peel off nicely, either before or after heating. This means making an absolute mess and potentially burning yourself by slicing a square of film off the packaging… [Read More]
