Birds Eye Hot & Spicy Chicken
Disadvantages: None really
I love Birds Eyes Chicken breasts topped in things so when I spotted this hot & spicy chicken x 2 in a box I was eager to try them out! At a pound a box (on offer at the time and it still is) in Asda I thought that it offered excellent value for money too and knowing that I usually like Birds Eye foods couldn't wait to get stuck into it!
Yellow box with a photograph of the chicken on the front and we are told that it is Birds Eye, 2 Hot & Spicy Chicken and that it is made with 100% chicken breast and contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and there is an at a glance nutritional chart shown too. On the back of the box other information listed includes ingredients, allergy advice and a full nutritional chart is given, we are told how to cook it and contact details for Birds Eye are given. The box is informative and easy to open.
The Chicken Itself:
What you get is two large and rather fat pieces of visually coated chicken. It's a yellowy colour and your meant to cook these from frozen either by cooking them in the oven for about 25 minutes or grilling them in around 20 minutes though I admit to being lazy and prefer instead to bung them in the oven till their time is up opposed to standing by a grill and flipping them!
When cooked these give off a nice chicken smell really, go golden in colour and look crunchy. The breadcrumbs contain dried red chilli, dried red pepper and dried parsley and you can see red flecks in the that mix if you peer at it hard enough.
The chicken tastes like breast, is well seasoned and moist and its a good thick piece too. It tastes grainy rather than processed and then the topping is crispy, crunchy and in places a little hard on the teeth though it all tastes great together texture and flavour wise. The breadcrumbs are a little greasy in places and moist though not too much so and the chilli and pepper do make this rather spicy and hot! If you like your food hot you will love these I bet!
I really like the quality and flavours of these. Tasty and spicy they are exactly what they say they are on the box, nothing more nothing less and I love them!
Nutritional Information Per Portion:
Available in all good supermarkets etc priced at about £1.50 a box if not on offer.
Summary: A great quality chicken breast
