      cheap and good burgers

      Birds Eye Chicken Burgers are chicken burgers made from breast meat of the chicken and have a nice breaded coating. The burgers are quite small in size but they are very tasty. Not to mention they are Birds Eye so you know you are getting quality.


      ---------------Taste&Smell------------------
      Usually breast meat of the chicken is very dry for me but these burgers contain breast meat and I think that are nowhere near as dry as your average chicken breast. The burger is quite moist and coated with bread crumbs which make the burgers more tasty. The size of the burger is quite small and thin so I always have to eat it with thin bread otherwise the burger becomes almost unnoticeable in comparison to the bread if it's thick.
      The smell of the burger is quite strong considering how small the burgers are. If someone in my house is cooking one of these burgers and I smell it I always end up putting on in for myself because they smell good and make me hungry.


      -------------Cooking & Why I Like Them-------------
      These burgers are very easy to cook and take roughly about 12-15 minutes in the oven which is pretty quick. You know they are finished when they are a golden colour. They are stored in the freezer and there is no need to defrost they just go straight in the oven.
      The reason I like them is because they are quick and easy to cook but yet still taste nice.There have been plenty of times where I would come home hungry and just want something quick to eat so these are what I make. In all I like them mainly because they are good for emergency dinners and I have alot of them these days.


      ----------------Other Information & Overall----------------
      The packet shows a picture of the burger and it's no false advertising it's spot on the way the burger actually looks.
      ------Ingredients
      Chicken (53%), Breadcrumb (With Natural Colours (Paprika Extract, Curcumin)), Sunflower Oil, Water, Wheat Flour, Fresh Onion, Salt.

      The quality of the burgers are good but for me I think personally they are just so small that I have to eat 2 for 1 to satisfy me. If they were a little bigger they would be 5 star burgers definitely.

      These burgers are very cheap costing anywhere between £1-£1.50 and come in a small petite box so they take up very little space in the freezer. I recommend these as they always make a good emergency dinner but for kids these are perfect because they are the right size to go with a meal my nephew loves them. The packet comes with 4 in the box so even if you do eat two for one meal or snack it still covers 2 meals or snacks so for me I feel that's a good buy just for £1. I don't think they are the healthiest but they are an excellent alternative to going to the chip shop or McDonalds.

      Disadvantages

      OK occasionally

      In terms of quick meals, I think Bird's Eye Chicken Burgers are actually pretty good. A packet of four chicken burgers costs just £1.00 from Tesco, which obviously equates to 25p per burger - which I feel is a really good price. Put the burger in a bun and then serve with salad and it's a complete meal that most will find sufficient. The burgers come in a cardboard packet and are already frozen at the time of purchase. It's quite handy that you get to cook these burgers from frozen because it means you don't have to remember to take them out the freezer to defrost in the morning before you go off to work.

      Cooking the burgers is very simple and involves putting them on an oven tray and then sticking them in the over for about 20 minutes. When they are cooked, they do look golden and so it's easy to tell really when they are cooked - and because they are quite thin, the outside doesn't do without the inside being done also.

      As I said, the burgers are fairly thin, but they are tasty. They are crispy on the outside because they are covered in breadcrumbs and soft on the inside with nice quality chicken. There is clearly some water in these burgers as it is only 46% chicken, and I would like this percentage to be higher, but having said that, the taste is okay and they don't shrivel down in size once they are cooked.

      Nutritionally they are okay also. One burger contains 120kcal and only 1g of saturated fat - and so they can be part of a balanced diet. Overall, it's not something I would want to serve every day, but as an occasionally convenience meal then they are absolutely fine.

      Tasty burgers for chicken fans

      I love chicken and even though I don't buy burgers frequently, these make a nice quick and easy sandwich filling. They're tasty, reasonably healthy without added gunk and can often be bought on offer.

      Birds Eye is a very popular brand with around 65 years of experience and an ever-expanding range of nom noms. When it comes to buying frozen chicken, Birds Eye is usually the brand I go for, knowing it'll be good quality and at least reasonably healthy with no nasties. These come in a box of 4 (though you can also buy in a larger bag, which I've seen in Iceland) that's golden yellow in colour and has recognisable Birds Eye logo on the front. To the right is an image of what to expect, which is quite tempting and looks fairly fresh and healthy.

      Each burger is made from chopped chicken breast and is coated in breadcrumbs. Cooking is very straightforward in either a grill or oven. To grill : Medium heat, 10-12 minutes. To oven bake : 12 minutes, 230°C or Fan 210°C, using a baking tray in the middle of the oven. These are only rough guidelines as per the box, so I tend to oven cook for the majority of the time and then grill them for a few minutes just to crisp them up a bit more. It's a good idea to keep an eye on them whilst they're cooking to turn them over occasionally. What you're left with is a crisp, golden burger.

      These actually have a slightly different smell to what I'd expect for breaded chicken but it's delicious. I love the aroma when they're in the oven and they come out, when cooked for a reasonable time, golden and grip on the top without being hard. I tend to blot these after cooking to remove excess fat/grease, then serve up. How do they taste? The chicken is quite tender and as you'd expect, whilst the coating adds a crisp texture with an appealing taste and aroma. They're soft without being soggy because of the coating, and whilst they're relatively thin, say, in comparison to a chunky beef burger, they're adequate for a sandwich or burger bun.

      Each burger contains 130 calories and 8g of fat, so having one or two each time is reasonable for dinner or lunch. I really like these in plain white sliced bread as well as burger buns, but I've also had them served with just salad because they don't taste bland thanks to the coating.

      Overall, I would recommend these because they're fairly healthy when it comes to burgers considering they're coated with breadcrumbs, are easy to cook, and both smell and taste delicious.

      A box of 4 (200g) retails for around £1.45 (Tesco)

      Disadvantages

      Delicious burgers which are quick to prepare.

      I have always been happy to purchase products from the Birds Eye range, as the company is known for producing quality products at affordable prices. When I was a child especially, my parents would often give be Birds Eye fish fingers which I always loved, and still do to this day.

      I spied these chicken burgers in my local Tesco a few days ago, and decided to buy them as they were just £1 for 4 burgers. I thought they would be ideal for lunchtimes, or as part of a light dinner.

      The packaging of these burgers is fairly bright and cheery, with the very recognisable Birds Eye logo on the front of the packet in a large font. I think the packaging definitely does stand out compared to the Supermarket's own brand products, and I feel like I can trust the brand, which is always a plus.

      The burgers themselves are fairly thin, but very tasty. The actually chicken used for them does seem of a high quality, which is why I wouldn't hesitate to buy these again. The breadcrumbs turn a lovely golden colour, and add a nice crunch to the outside of the burger, which is a good contrast to the succulent chicken. I used these burgers for a lunch time snack for me and my boyfriend, we had two each on a bun, and I found them to be fairly filling. I think if I were having them for dinner, I'd have to add some chips or wedges and maybe some frozen vegetables - which I think would be a very hearty meal. As these burgers are only small, I would think that for adults you would need two burgers each.

      Each burger contains 130 calories, which I think if fairly good - I wouldn't class these as being too unhealthy for a burger. I also like the fact that they are made with no artificial colours or preservatives, but this is something I would expect from the Birds Eye brand.

      These burgers take just take 12 minutes to cook in the oven, so I think they are ideal for an emergency dinner, or quick afternoon snack.

      Price and availability...

      These burgers are widely available from most supermarkets, and I'll give a quick run down of prices (at the time of writing).
      Tesco's - £1.00
      Asda - £1.45
      Sainsbury's - £1.45

      I would definitely purchase these again in the future!

        A nice Chicken Burger; good quality product from Birds Eye

        I have always been a fan of Birds Eye food products overall and I think these Chicken Burgers are good value and a decent tasting burger. My daughter seems to have a slight preference for chicken burgers and my son seems to be going the same way too, so occasionally I will buy these burgers at Asda. The reason I choose Asda is because I have noticed that for a long time now they have had an offer where you can buy any 3 Birds Eye products ( a select choice) for only £3.00 . I have bought the Birds Eye chicken Griddlers as well as their beef burgers. All these products for only £3.00 is a bargain not to be sniffed at in my own view.

        I am guessing that you may also be able to get this offer at other supermarkets because it is actually printed on the packaging.

        You get 4 Chicken Burgers in each box. They are a little small in size but are made with Chicken Breast meat. The Chicken Breast meat is chopped and coated in Breadcrumbs. They don't taste like eating pure Chicken Breast, however, they do taste nice and go nicely in a Burger Bun. I sometimes eat these myself usually with a Bun with Lettuce and onions and home made chips.

        They are really easy to cook and can be grilled or oven cooked. I usually oven cook them. It only takes about 12 minutes to cook whichever way you choose.

        Ingredients
        ************

        Chicken Breast (46%), Breadcrumbs, Marinade, Batter, Vegetable Oil, Onion

        Breadcrumbs (Wheat Flour, Water, Paprika, Salt, Turmeric)
        Batter (Water, Wheat Flour, Salt)
        Marinade ( Water, Wheat Flour, Chicken fat, Yeast, Salt, Natural Flavourings 9contains celery)

        Calories
        ************

        Kcals; 130 per burger

        *Allergies; contains Wheat, Celery*

        My verdict; A good quality, good tasting Chicken Burger; worth 4 Dooyoo stars in my view.

          Disadvantages

          4/5 a good simple burger but needs something a little extra.

          We don't usually shop at Asda but since my girlfriend's moved to Stoke, and that's where she does her shopping I've also been picking up a few bits for at home. Birds Eye Chicken Burgers aren't something I'd usually buy but Jessica had them in her freezer as she's a big fan of fast food (even though she's training to be a chef!) and I've been trying to convince her to but a few bits in rather than going to McDonalds all the time. These burgers come in a box of 4, and at the moment are £1.34 a box or 3 for £3, so there was a fair few of these to get through!

          We served these up one day for lunch last week; I took them out and was pleased to see that, as with the majority of Birds Eye chicken products these burgers are 100% chicken breast. The picture on the front of the box looks really appetising, with the burger in a bun with lots of fresh looking salad, and this is just the way we decided to serve them. I also made some potato wedges, marinated in paprika olive oil which gives a nice kick to a chicken meal.

          Birds Eye Chicken Burgers come straight from the freezer to cook, they shouldn't be defrosted, to cook you simply pop them in the oven for 12 minutes or under the grill for about 6 minutes each side. Although we've cooked them both ways I have to say I prefer these done in the oven as they tend to get a bit too crispy for me under the grill. The burgers do turn a lovely golden colour (they're covered in breadcrumbs) and smell really meaty and delicious. I served these on a white burger bun with lettuce, tomato and red onion.

          I cut my burger in half and if cut through easily, after doing this I could see a good burger of chicken lightly covered in breadcrumbs, however they are quite thin, one's plenty in a bun but if you're just serving these like a chicken fillet most people could probably eat two. The chicken of the burger was lovely and soft, really moist and juicy and the crispy breadcrumbs gave a nice crunch. The meat was lightly seasoned but really benefitted from some burger relish on top as to be honest; they were a little bit bland. I will say though that these burgers are good quality the meat is delicious but it could just do with a little bit more flavour, although I am glad that these burgers haven't been messed around with!

          Nutritional Information Per Burger:

          Calories: 130
          Sugars: 0.3g
          Fat: 6.5g
          Saturates; 1.0g
          Salt: 0.3g

          Overall, I enjoyed Birds Eye Chicken Burgers, they weren't the most flavoursome but then again they're just good, plain chicken and can easily flavoured up with a bit of relish or sauce. They're really good value at just 25p a burger whilst on offer and would suit most tastes, nutritionally they're pretty good and great to have in the freezer.

            Lovely burgers

            I have only started eating meat again in the past couple of years after being a vegetarian for 14 years. I dont eat a lot of meat and I am still very picky about what I will and will not eat. One thing I do like is chicken.

            Whenever I do buy chicken products, unless it is fresh I will almost always go for the Birds Eye brand simply because all of their products use 100% chicken breast and I know I will be getting good value for money.

            When looking in Tesco the other day for something quick and easy for that evenings dinner my eyes fell on these chicken burgers. We have had them before and never had any problems and they were on offer for 4 for £1 so I grabbed a box.

            The chicken burgers are frozen and they will need to be kept that way until you cook them.

            To cook these you can either grill them or oven bake them. I always oven bake them as I just find it easier. They take about 12 minutes both ways so they are quick to cook.

            Personally, I always leave my chicken burgers in for about 15 minutes simply because I want to be certain they are cooked! After that 15 minutes the breadcrumbs look a lovely golden colour and you can smell the chicken. The burgers hold together well and do not fall apart.

            The burgers look appetising and I couldnt wait to tuck in. The burgers were easy to cut through and the chicken was soft and not at all tough. The breadcrumbs go well with the chicken and give a lovely seasoned taste. The chicken tastes lovely and fresh and it is soft and almost melts in the mouth.

            I find that 1 of these is enough as part of a main meal for those who dont have such a large appetite but most people will probably want 2.

            Each burger contains 130 calories, 0.3g sugar, 6.5g fat (1.0g saturates) and 0.3g salt. Now the fat isnt really too bad here and the saturates are quite low so these are not too bad as part of a main meal.

            I really liked these burgers and will buy them again, they are good value for money and taste lovely. With Birds Eye you know you are getting a quality product and I would recommend them.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            At the moment these are my boyfriend's fav!

            When it comes to things like chicken burgers they are not things that usually put in an appearance in my freezer. I love to cook and experiment with foods and I'm not usually a fan of ready prepared foods. However my boyfriend is and not only is he a very plain eater but a very fussy one too and so when I spotted these just before he arrived to visit I treated him to a box and felt I couldn't go wrong with a brand like Birds Eye!

            The Packaging:

            Yellow box with a photograph of Captain Birds Eye on there and a photograph of one of the chicken burgers in a bun. I'm told that they are Birds Eye '4' Chicken Burgers and that they are made with chicken breast, there is an at a glance nutritional chart displayed and I am told that they contain no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and that Birds Eye offer a commitment of quality. Other information on the box includes a little bit more information about Birds Eye and the burgers, ingredients and allergy advice is stated along with a full nutritional rundown chart, I'm told how to cook them and contact details for Birds Eye are given. Nice bright informative packaging this is!

            The Burgers:

            Best cooked from frozen (according to the information stated on the box) all you do with these small, thin, round and orangy coloured chicken burgers (orange in colour due to the breadcrumbs which are coated evenly over each one) is either grill them in about 10-12 minutes or oven cook them in about 12 minutes. I cooked them both ways as I had 4 burgers and used them over a couple of days and either way is much the same as the other in regards to the final outcome once cooked.

            Taste wise well I found them a little plain to be honest with you...but my boyfriend adored them. They are rather plain in taste with golden breadcrumbs which go a little hard through cooking and are a bit crunchy and the chicken is mushed up within the breadcrumbs and stays moist and lightly pink though thoroughly cooked. They are lightly seasoned, plain good quality burgers though for me personally not only only were they a little too bland they were a bit thin and therefore a little too crunchy for my liking! Not bad and I can't argue with the quality of them to be fair to them!

            Nutritional Information Per Burger:

            Calories: 130
            Sugars: 0.3g
            Fat: 6.5g
            Saturates; 1.0g
            Salt: 0.3g

            Available in all good supermarkets etc costing about £1.50 a box unless on offer. At the moment these are on offer with alot of Birds Eye chicken type products being on offer at 3 boxes for three pound.

            nice and crunchy done in the oven

            One of my favourite meals is chicken burgers in a bun with salad and mayonaise, its a light meal when your feeling fed up with cooking and a tasty snack for lunch and if I am having this I usually buy Bird's Eye Chicken Burgers.

            Birds Eye foods are really well known, a popular brand which advertizes its quality and you really do get good quality with birds eye at not too bad a price. I bought these packet of four chicken burgers at morrissons for £1.79 but you can often get them cheaper when they are on offer and sometimes get them buy one get one free. You can find them in the freezer section of the supermarkets.

            The packaging is simple a cardboard packet witht he four burgers inside, you can recycle the box as we now have two wheely bins provided to us by the council to do this, so the packaging is environmently friendly. I like dispoaable boxes and this one isn't too big and fits in the freezer drawer unlike some huge pizza boxes you can buy nowadays.

            It only takes about fifteen to twenty minutes to cook the burgers, you can grill them, fry them in a little oil or if like me you like to have them done nice and crunchy and cooked through, then pop them in the oven on a tray and cook them for 20 minutes.
            They will then come out nice and crunchy and not greasy like you get them if you fry them in oil.
            The outside will be crunchy and the inside cooked well. Pop it in a burger bun with mayo and salad and hey presto a tasty snack that all the family will enjoy.

            The ingredients are as: Chicken Breast (53%), Breadcrumb, Batter, Vegetable Oil, Marinade, Onion.
            Breadcrumb Wheat Flour, Water, Yeast, Salt, Natural Colour (Paprika Extract, Curcumin).
            Batter Water, Wheat Flour, Salt.
            Marinade Water, Salt, Wheat Flour.

            The burgers contain 244 kcal energy per 100 g (2 burgers). In 100 g there is 11.1% protein, 22.5% Carbohydrate, 12.2% Fat, 2.8% Fibre and 0.28% Sodium.

            Thats the information part over with and now this is what I think. I like them a lot and buy them often, they can be kept in the freezer for a month before you have to eat them, they are a quick tasty snack and an alternative to making a huge dinner with vegetables and meat if like me you sometimes get fed up of cooking a large meal. Just pop them in the oven and they easy to cook.

            I would recommend them to you if you like chicken burgers and to try them cooked in the oven instead of frying them to cut down the fat content. You can always have them with chips and peas instead of in a burger bun and kids seem to like them too, my daughter loves them and so do my grandchildren, so for me they get a 9 out of 10.

            Have fun x

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Fills a hole.

            BirdsEye chicken burgers are advertised as 100% chicken breast, but this is deceptive; the chicken which is used is indeed breast meat, but the burgers themselves are not even close to 100% chicken. The chicken content actually amounts to 53%, according to the back of the box. That seems obvious to most people I remark to about it, but it didn't seem fair to me to have "100% Chicken Breast" in huge letters on the front of the box. Anyway.

            The burgers require at least five minutes more cooking time than the cooking instructions indicate, because even though the burgers are cooked they tend to taste almost chalky and generally unpleasant unless they're really piping hot. When they're finally cooked properly they taste nice enough, and the feint taste of onion and celery is in there if you look (lick?) hard enough. For me, they need at least a sprinkle of salt before they become tasty, but I usually smother them in a nice big dollop of HP Sauce and skip the baps!

            They're pretty small burgers, and unless you're using the smallest baps in the bakery you'll be eating more bare bread than meat. I tend to eat them by the boxful (i.e. four at a time), because they simply aren't substantial enough otherwise, and I usually find myself putting at least two into a single bap just to fill up the space.

            Overcook them, season them, forget the baps unless you can get miniature ones and don't expect 100% chicken. If you can manage all of that then BirdsEye chicken burgers are snack-worthy.

              See review

              I felt compelled to review these burgers, as although I like Birds Eye's products as a general rule these burgers really disappointed me.

              Birds Eye are a brand I know and trust, and being a lover of convenience food when the time fits snatched these up when they were on special in Asda.

              The Product:

              The slogan on the back reads 5 star food, frozen. The overview of what you are getting is described as 2 Chicken Quarter Pounders, made with marinated chunks of chicken breast meat, seasoned and wrapped in a golden rice coating.

              The Cooking:

              Either grill for 18 minutes, or cook in the oven Gas Mark 7 (220c) for 20 minutes.
              As there are 2 in the pack and I really am not that much of a gannet, I had the 2 burgers on separate occasions.
              The first time round I grilled the burger, I found it cooked far too quickly despite the grill being on a medium setting and me standing and constantly flipping it over. I was amazed by how much grease came out and also that after blotting the said burger it still after 20 minutes was raw in part in the middle and slightly burnt at the edges. Undeterred and very hungry I decided to shove it back under the grill for a few more minutes (well 5 to be exact) I was happy with the burger being cooked fully.
              The second time around I cooked it in the oven. I cooked it for slightly over the 20 mins (more like 30) and it was cooked and not greasy.

              The Taste:

              This is what upset me the most. After the first time of grilling I sat down with the burger in a bun with a little mayo and lettuce (sorry a must for me) and whilst the bun lettuce and mayo were lovely the burger wasn't. The consistency of the burger was tough at the edges and gooey in places inside. I therefore disappointingly pushed it to the side and left most of it.
              Thinking that perhaps as I had butchered the grilling the first time round, that oven baking was the way forward.
              This time I decided to try it as was. So as to get the full flavour. Boy I wished I hadn't! The outer part of this ''golden rice coating'' tasted like very old rice crispies or for those of you who like those rice crackers-it was like that but warm. The consistency of the outer shell of the product was dry and like I say old rice crispies.
              The layer slightly under the rice wrapping was like the skin you get from a Kentucky fried chicken......stretchy and almost too skin like...its hard to explain but basically all you need to know is that it totally ruins your dining experience.

              The chicken inside I must say this time round I couldn't fault. Perhaps it's the way they make the outer coating of the chicken that totally ruins the overall taste. Reading the packer of the box, it says that the breadcrumbs are made up of rice flour, breadcrumbs, contains wheat flour yeast salt and malt extract...note to self never try this combination....
              It also states the marinade is salt water and natural flavouring. I would be very interesting to know what is classed as natural flavouring??!! It also states that E450 and E500 are the basic ingredients of Baking Powder which is used to make the batter light and crispy. Well I can vouch for the crispy but not the light,
              Both times and both ways of cooking it was a stodgy tasting disappointing burger.

              Price:

              I got these on special - 1 packets of 2 Quarter Pounders £2.00 for both weighing 227g.
              I looked for a price comparison to what they usually are and in Sainsbury they do a packet of 8 burgers weight 400g for £2.99

              Overall:

              A very disappointing flavour to Birds Eye Chicken Burgers. The outer layer does not flatter the chicken and doesn't make it different or tastier than the standard chicken burgers around.
              They are a pretty good size I will give them that but to be fair it just made it more painful as it took longer to clear it from my plate.

              .

              Burgers for us are all about the Beef. Although I love Chicken products, as you may see from all my Birds Eye reviews, there is just something not quite right about having a bit of Chicken in Breadcrumbs in a Roll.

              We bought these the other week as they were only £1 for the 4 pack, and we fancied a change. I think they normally cost around £1.50. The price seems ok, but they didn't seem the largest Burgers.

              We cooked these in the Oven. Normally we make Burgers in the George Forman Grill, but weren't sure about these since they weren't just Meat and had the Crumbs on them. At least they didn't shrink in the Oven.

              These came out quite crisp and dry on the outside and the Chicken was tender and juicy on the inside. There wasn't that thick a bit Chicken in here, and the Chicken seemed that bit less with the amount of coating on the Burger.

              This did make a nice change in a roll, but not something I would eat all that often. I guess you don't have to have these in a roll, and can just eat them on a plate like another Chicken item, but if they are classed as Burgers then I will probably eat them as Burgers.

              Alright, but not all that.

              Instant Chicken Burger

              We almost tried every variety of birdseye product so when I came across with their chicken burger, I didn't hesitate to give it a try. I instantly thought of making a lovely burger with lettuce and tomatoes, a great snack for the whole family.

              BURGER
              Consist of 4 Burgers made with chopped chicken breast coated in breadcrumbs. Available in pack of 4 - 227g and It doesn't contain any artificial colours or preservatives. Each burger has 145 calories. It's quite light and thin and the size isn't too big either, but very easy to prepare, only 12 minutes to cook in grill and 15 minutes for oven. Perfect for anyone who want to have a decent quick snack.

              PRICE
              It comes in a box that normally cost £1.35 in tesco which is on offer for just a pound until 8/3/2010. Asda offer it for £1.00 with a much better price for 4 box for just £3 valid until 16/3/2010. Definitely a brilliant value.

              INGREDIENTS
              Chicken Breast (53%), Breadcrumb, Batter, Vegetable Oil, Marinade, Onion.
              Breadcrumb Wheat Flour, Water, Yeast, Salt, Natural Colour (Paprika Extract, Curcumin).

              OPINION
              These were another great product from birdseye, additional choice for a fun snack that can be easily prepared at home. The kids love mixing them with other food such as salad, chips, sweetcorn, wedges. So you can also choose to filled it with other healthy snacks that you prefer. It's a lovely substantial meal that kept me filled up for quite a while. A very tasty and convenient meal in minutes.

              Thank you for reading ;-D

              Very tasty chicken burgers

              I bought some of these Birds Eye chicken burgers in Asda yesterday as they were on offer for only £1 for a pack of 4. I'm not usually keen on buying things like this as I know that the chicken inside them isn't supposed to be very good for you but coming from Birds Eye and the fact that the pack says that the chicken is made from farm assured chicken breast, the chicken inside these ones seems to be perfectly fine.

              These burgers are made from chopped chicken breast and are covered in breadcrumbs. They take only 12 minutes to cook either in the oven or the grill which is great for a speedy meal when you're hungry.

              These are pretty good for you as they don't contain any artificial colours or preservatives and each burger contains 130 calories.

              The burgers are only pretty thin so put inside a burger bun or a slice of bread with some salad and some chips makes a great meal. I cooked myself one burger last night and I liked it so much that I ended up making another one! But they're not huge burgers so I wasn't being too much of a pig!

              These are perfect for a fun meal for children or just for a small meal for an adult as they're really very tasty and perfectly easy and quick to cook.

              Worth keeping a pack in the freezer

              Since I started a management course in distance learning I have less time on cooking so I buy some prepared food. The one we tried today in the Birds Eye Chicken Burgers. They come in a cardboard box and there are 4 burgers in it. They weight 200 g together. They are available in most of the supermarkets. I bought ours in Sainsbury's for 1.79 pounds. Not very surprising but I tell anyway that they are among frozen food.

              How to prepare them? I put them on the preheated grill and on a medium level I cooked them until they were crispy on both sides. On my grill this lasted for about 10 minutes. Then I put them into toasted hamburger buns in companion with a leaf of round lettuce, a slice of tomato, two slices of onion, a slice of cheddar cheese and some ketchup. They were really tasty.

              If you don't have a grill you can prepare it in the oven as well but they won't be as crispy as on the grill. You should put them on a tray in a preheated oven of 230 grades /210 grades with fan / gas mark 8 for 15 minutes.

              The chicken burgers are not too big and they are about 1 cm thick. They are made with chicken breast coated in breadcrumbs so they are quite light. Even my kids liked it very much. Naturally I had to cut the hamburgers into little pieces for them.

              The ingredients are as follows: Chicken Breast (53%), Breadcrumb, Batter, Vegetable Oil, Marinade, Onion.
              Breadcrumb Wheat Flour, Water, Yeast, Salt, Natural Colour (Paprika Extract, Curcumin).
              Batter Water, Wheat Flour, Salt.
              Marinade Water, Salt, Wheat Flour.

              The burgers (without bread and vegetables) contain 244 kcal energy per 100 g (2 burgers). In 100 g there is 11.1% protein, 22.5% Carbohydrate, 12.2% Fat, 2.8% Fibre and 0.28% Sodium.

              To sum up these chicken burgers are very convenient for me as while the burgers are on the grill I can wash and cut the vegetables and on the open part of my grill I can toast the hamburger buns. So preparing 4 hamburgers takes me 15 minutes from the beginning to the ready stage. They aren't the healthiest option available but I think they are delicious and at least we eat some cheese, tomato, onion, lettuce and chicken breast. I will definitely buy them in the future too. I have some other frozen prepared food at home I have to test but this one definitely was a winner.
