Birds Eye Hot & Spicy Chicken
Advantages: Great price, easy to cook, freezable.
Disadvantages: High in fat, very spicy, made my lips tingle.
This and some other birds eye products are currently on offer in most supermarkets for £1 per box which makes them almost irresistible to my trolley when it is being pushed around the store and therefore a couple of packets found their way on to this weeks shopping bill (low for a change!) and we promptly set about trying them tonight with some bombay potatoes and rice. Yum!
For £1 you got 2 chicken breasts which are approximately 230 calories and 12g of fat each. We had two with our dinner but I only managed one and a bit as I was quite full from my potatoes and rice (carb fest!).
Upon opening the cardboard box (which can be recycled), you are met with two chicken breasts which do look quite like the picture on the box. I could tell that these were going to be hot as there were lots of flecks of spices on there and when they were cooking I could really smell a spicy kind of smell.
These are chicken breasts covered with breadcrumbs and then lots of spices and herbs including pepper, cayenne pepper, chilli pepper etc and it is fair to say that there is enough spice on here to help the product live up to its name!
To cook the breasts you put the oven on gas mark 5 for 25 minutes but I cooked mine at gas mark 6 for 25 minutes as I was also making my Bombay potatoes with it and I wanted to ensure that everything was cooked thoroughly and ready to be eaten at the same time.
Once cooked the breasts looked apetising and I could really see the colour of the spices and it did have quite a red hue to it.
The chicken was fairly spicy and my lips were left tingling for a little while afterwards. The spice seemed to build in intensity with every bite and it really did live up to its name. I did not believe these were going to be particularly hot or I would not have purchased them. I know that sounds stupid but I usually find lots of products listed as 'spicy' to really be just about bearable for my delicate palette.
Chicken Breast (53%) , Batter , Seasoned Breadcrumb , Marinade , Vegetable Oil , Batter: Wheat Flour, Water, Salt, Raising Agents (E450, E500)#, Garlic Powder, Tomato Powder, Onion Powder , Black Pepper, Cayenne Pepper, Wheat Starch, Yeast Extract, Vegetable Oil, Spice Extracts , Natural Colour (Paprika Extract) , Seasoned Breadcrumb: Breadcrumb (Wheat Flour, Yeast, Salt), Dried Red Pepper, Dried Red Chilli, Dried Parsley , Marinade: Water, Wheat Flour, Salt, Wheat Starch, Maize Starch, Rice Flour Natural Flavourings (contains Celery) , #E450, E500 are the basic ingredients of Baking Powder which is used to make the batter light and crispy.
These are very spicy and if spice is your kind of thing then no doubt you will thoroughly enjoy these, as my other half did. It has been a couple of hours since I have eaten them now and my lips are still tingling quite severley so I would rate these 4/5 as I just could not handle the heat. They definitely live up to their name, the chicken is very nice as are the breadcrumbs and if these were just a little bit less spicy then I would purchase these again (then they would have to be called mild spice just for Katy!).
Summary: A very tasty but very spicy chicken breast.
