“ Brand: Asda / Type: Chicken „
Chicken is our favourite meat in our household. We eat it for Tea, and often have it in a Sandwich. It is something that can be enjoyed just as plain Chicken, or like this with a bit of a twist to it.
these are found in the chill section of Asda next to the sliced meat. This isn't sliced meat, but sort of balls of Meat, but there is other products much the same as this. it is a meat afterall so in the most logical place in the shop. These cost £1.80 per pack, but there was a 2 for £3 offer on, so we got some Chinese Chicken as well, as that is 1 of our favourite different flavours of Chicken.
You can see the Chicken through the pack and it looks orange with some flecks of what looks like Herbs through it. Has a bit spicy look to it, but I didn't think it would be too hot.
I bit into one of these and decided that I though the taste was lovely. The Chicken was tender and you could tell it was Breast meat. The outer part which was where the Tikka flavouring was was slightly spicy and with a bit of a smokey tang to it as well. The coating seemed a bit crumb like as well, and the rough spicy texture went well with the cool clean Chicken taste inside.
Me and the wife finished the whole pack in about 30 minutes just by nibbling the bits. This was an ideal snack food and just something you were able to nibble on quite the thing. Made a change to Crisps and other snack foods.
Not something I would eat all the time, as I think you could go off a product like this quite easily, but made a nice Chicken change and not too spicy either.
After deciding that regardless of the weather on bank holiday Monday, we were going on a picnic, even if it meant sitting the back of the car to eat it....which in fairness at times we did!
Now I do love a picnic, but I tend to go over the top food wise, with the product I will now review being one of the many, many things I purchased for this purpose!
The product I will now review is - "Asda - 12 mini chicken tikka bites".
The particular product is available as part of a "2 for £3.00" offer that is currently running, in part I assume due to everyone having the same idea as me!
The packaging is pretty sparse looking, with each round "bite" being held within it's own space in the plastic tray, then wrapped within a clear cellophane packet, so once opened these will either have t be eaten (very easy to do to!) or simply transferred into another container and covered!
To look at these look like mini scotch eggs, which in fairness after eating one they are, except where the egg would usually be there is a generous helping of thick and bright orange coloured chicken tikka sauce.
The taste is delicious, from the slightly textured bread crumbed outer shell, through to the meaty inner shell, this is then spiced up but not unbearably so, with the spicy tikka paste, this really is a lovely addition to the picnic hamper.
After reading the product description on the back of the pack, I was surprised to find that the spicy filling is actually cream cheese with some spice added, this does not taste in the slightest bit cheesy!
