“ Brand: Asda / Type: Meat „
I ended up trying these at my sister's house. I'm certainly not a food snob and often buy budget brands myself. Have found a few good things in the cheaper brands, but I tend to stay away from Budget Chicken products. This could be because of the Jamie Oliver programme I watched years ago. My sister is on a pretty tight buget, and although I didn't know what I was eating when I was eating it, I got the info afterwards. I have to say this was alright, but perhaps I wouldn't buy it again.
These come frozen in a pack of 8. They are found next to the other frozen Chicken products. They comes in a plain white plastic bag with the Asda Smart Price branding on it. The ingredients are on the back as well as the nutritional information. The 8 Burgers cost £1, which was pretty cheap.
When I looked in the frozen pack I could see that the Burgers were slightly larger than after they were cooked. Then again they hadn't shrunk that much. They aren't the largest Burgers and certainly wouldn't fill your average roll. They were quite thin as well. The Breadcrumb coating was thick enough and no empty bits.
My sister had cooked these in the oven and the Breadcrumbs were crisp and crunchy, and the Chicken was tender enough.
The Chicken inside was alright. It seemed a bit bitty, and you could tell it wasn't breast Meat, but I wouldn't have expected that anyway. It was alright, not much taste and not much seasoning either. Then again I could taste a bit salty taste, but no Pepper.
These were alright, and not as cheap and nasty tasting as what I would have expected. I just can't see me buying these and it's not because of the cheap label, it's just that I prefer Breast Meat.
I brought these Breaded Chicken Burgers for the first time before Xmas and even though they're not majorly good quality they're yummy in a bun with bbq sauce and a slice of cheese melted onto it.
You get 8 chicken burgers for £1.00 and that's a good price I reckon. You can cook the burgers in the oven, grill them or do them in the frying pan. I grilled mine because this sort of thing goes dry in the oven, the burger still dried up a bit but not as much as if they was done in the cooker.
The burgers taste quite bland but the chicken isn't the disgusting stuff you are probably thinking it's going to be. It's blatantly reformed chicken but it's still got a nice fresh taste, not FRESH exactly but a zillion times better than some of the rank chicken nuggets and stuff you can buy in the supermarket. It's chewy but hasn't gone soggy in the middle, I think the texture of the burger is quite nice actually but I don't think I'd eat them on their own on a plate and it would have to be in a bun for me just for a bit of added flavour and to make the burger more filling.
They're quite small and that's another reason I did mine in a bun. I couldn't eat 2 because they are a bit too greasy tasting but one isn't quite enough unless you have it with something else.
The breadcrumbs are ok but nothing special, they've got a greasy flavour and that put me off a bit but the over all taste is quite bland and tasteless. That's ok though because it means the flavour of the chicken comes through better and I reckon that if the breadcrumbs were stronger tasting then you'd lose a lot of the chicken flavour.
Don't be a snob about these, they're majorly cheap and no worse than some of the other crappy food that a lot of people eat. It makes a nice cheap snack with a bun and if you do some chips up as well then it will be a filling meal for adults or kids.
Recommended..... and I never thought they would be so give them a try!!!
