“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Meat - Southern Fried Chicken Strips „
My children like Chicken and I am often on the look out for something which I think they will like. I noticed this Chicken selection box at Tesco's and for what it was, £4.00 seemed a reasonable price. You will find it in the frozen section.
The Chicken is described in this way 'Delicious mini fillets with southern fried style coating with Chicken pops in a southern fried style crispy coating and Chicken pops in a crispy batter'. I wouldn't exactly say this food is delicious, but its ok .
The box is made up of the mini fillets (50%), the pops (25%) and the battered pops (25%). They are made with Chicken Breast. The best part of this selection is the Mini fillets. The coating is slightly spicy but not too much and the Chicken breast is nice. With the pops and the battered pops; these are made with 'chopped and shaped chicken breast'. The southern fried pops in batter are really quite spicy; and were a bit too spicy for my daughter. I quite liked them as did my son but I wasn't greatly impressed with the way the chicken was ; regarding it being chopped and shaped. In fact, I try not to buy Chicken pops etc which are chopped and shaped chicken (even if it is chicken breast); because it doesn't really look like Chicken breast and there is actually not that much Chicken breast in it (just over 50%). The same was for the chicken pops in batter; they were both ok, but not what I would usually like to have.

Whilst every care has been taken to remove all bones, some may remain.
You get a reasonable amount of chicken pieces in the box, although the pops are small; If you have this with fries its an ok meal; worthy of 3 Dooyoo stars in my view.
