Tesco Cheese & Ham Chicken Kievs
Advantages: Cheap, easy to cook
Disadvantages: Taste disgusting!
I decided to try these chicken kievs in tesco when they were on offer 2 packs for £3. They had other products in this offer such as escolopes and southern fried chicken. I bought cheese and ham chicken kievs, and garlic kievs.
I wish i hadnt bought two packs of these, as they were awful! I love chicken kievs, and i am not fussy about eating cheap meat. I wouldnt try value meat, but supermarkets own brand like these kievs are usually alright. I have even tried cheap chicken kievs, 2 for £1 in iceland, and even they were miles better than these.
These chicken kievs, are chicken breasts covered in breast crumbs filled with a cheese and ham sauce. They come in a pack of two kievs, which is perfect for just me and my boyfriend, a cheap meal we thought.
The chicken didnt taste like normal chicken breasts, you could tell it was processed meat. The packets says it is chopped and shaped chicken breast with added water.
The cheese taste is not very strong and there was only about 2 pieces of ham in each kiev, it hardly had any taste at all. It was just like eating a chicken breast with breadcrumbs, with a bland sauce in the middle.
The bottom of the kiev had gone all soggy and greasy which was disgusting! But at least the sauce hadnt leaked out all over the oven tray, the sauce stayed in the kiev even though i cooked it longer than you should. Other kievs i have tried even though they taste a lot nicer, i always find the sauce leaks out.
To cook these chicken kievs, all you do is place them on a baking tray in the centre of a pre heated oven at 200 degrees for 22-25 minutes. If they are frozen you need to cook them for 30-35 minutes. You need to make sure they are piping hot before eating them.
Although chicken kievs are easy enough to just put in the oven if you dont want to bother cooking, you need to watch these near to the end to make sure the sauce doesnt start leaking out. I also tend to have to leave them about another 10 minutes than the recommended time as they are never piping hot.
These kievs are quite high in calories, probably due to the cheese, with 330 calories per kiev so they arent really a healthy meal, but great if you couldnt be bothered cooking.
If you are going to freeze these, you need to on the day you purchase them and use within one month. They are not suitable for microwave cooking.
Overall, i will not be buying these chicken kievs again, i will pay a little extra i think for a better quality product!!
Summary: Wouldnt recommend!
