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]

Morrisons Chicken with Leeks, Bacon and Roast Potatoes

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

Published on June 22nd, 2013 Kerry Foods

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

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]
