This meal self-effacingly refers to itself as a “SIDE”, which I think does it a disservice. There’s plenty of chicken, so this would be a reasonable as a main course. But at a £3.50 RRP, this would be quite a pricey main course – and a VERY expensive side dish, considering this is standard ‘ASDA’… [Read More]
Bastard hot (temperature wise). Somehow retains its heat for ages. Do not eat in a hurry. Strong Thai flavour. Not much chicken. Separate compartments keeps the rice really sticky – but may also serve as a disguise for smaller portions. I’m onto you, Tesco! Tasty, but I was still hungry afterwards.
Posh packaging – got a little cardboard flap to show you more info you’re unlikely to read. Slippy packaging too – it all slides out of the plastic and onto the plate like a satisfying non stick pan. Portion looks meagre when emptying out each individual compartment, but it goes a long way. Creamy like… [Read More]
Bland, and quite dry, owing to its virtuosity. The fact that it’s only 397 calories means you’re still quite hungry after. In its favour, the chicken has flavour and is quite succulent, and the dish is 1 of your 5 a day.
Disclaimer: I bought this in Sainsbury’s, not at Wasabi. Think it’s awesome that that’s even a thing. Battered chicken is not very reliable when it comes to microwave instructions – many manufacturers wuss out and force you to use the oven – but not here. Wasabi may have specified a long cooking time (6/7 mins… [Read More]
Given the sheer size of this pot (and the name, “The Big One”, which is a promise it had better well keep), I was disappointed to open the lid and find only a small mound of noodles at the bottom. I had a choice of 3 fill levels depending on how thin I wanted my… [Read More]
You know how those Beano and Dandy comics grabbed your eye as a kid? Well, the same trick works on adults, so long as food’s involved. Yes, the packaging is a trifle ‘sudden’, and once I saw the claims of “Feel Good” flavour, I had to give it a go. The prep Battle through the… [Read More]
I could have sworn I’d reviewed this already – I’ve reviewed a bunch of Rustlers burgers, and this feels like one I’d have picked quite early on! Alas, I haven’t reviewed it yet – the closest thing from Rustlers being the Rustlers Grilled Chicken Sandwich with Mayo (4/5 – delicious!), and away from Rustlers we have the Feasters… [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]
