This evenings dinner!
The product I will be reviewing is the Chicken Sizzler which is part of the Asda Good For You range. This product is available in the fresh meals aisle within Asda. It is described as being marinated chicken breast pieces with roasted vegetables in a rich and spicy tomato sauce.
This meal comes in a black plastic tray with a clear film lid. It is then slid into a cardboard sleeve. The front of the sleeve has the name of the product, some basic nutritional information, best before date, current offer of sale and a very enticing picture of the finished meal. As with most food products, the back of the sleeve has ingredients, cooking instructions, allergy information, nutritional information, storage instructions, recycling information and company details and promises.
To microwave from chilled - remove sleeve and pierce film lid in several places. Place the container on a microwavable plate. Heat on full pwder for 3mins (750W). Peel back film lid, stir and re-cover. Heat on full pwer for a further 2mins (750W). Leave to stand for 2mins. Peel back film lid and serve.
To microwave from frozen - as above but heat for 5mins and then 4mins.
To oven cook from chilled - remove sleeve and pierce film lid in several places. Place the container onto a baking tray in the centre of a pre-heated over at 190C/275F/Gas Mark 5 for 30mins or until thoroughly heated. Remove film lid, stir and serve.
Not suitable for over cooking from frozen.
After cooking leave the tray to stand until it regains its rigidity.
Take care when removing film lid, as hot steam will escape.

I regularly purchase meals from the Asda Good For You range for both myself and my partner. I believe they offer healthy meals at very reasonable prices if bought on the 3 for £4 offer which seems to be a permanent offer.
Whilst doing my weekly shop, I was choosing my meals when I came across the Chicken Sizzler meal. I hadn't seen this one before and thought the prepared meal on the front looked very appealing and seeing that it is less than 300kcal per pack I put one straight in the trolley! Tonight I decided I would make this. I am not a good from fresh sort of person, I grudge spending lots of fresh stuff as I seem to mess it up everytime so these sort of meals are perfect for me.
So, I was hungry and impatient so chose the microwave option. On removing the tray from the sleeve I was pleasantly surprised, there was at least 10 decently sized pieces of chicken breast and plenty of sauce and peppers and onions. I like all of the vegetables within the meal which meant I didn't have to pick some out or eat around them like some other ready meals! During cooking you get a whiff of spicyness and it reminds me of a spicy stirfry smell.
Although there is a good amount in the pack, I was very hungry so thought a pack of Uncle Bens microwavable rice would act as the perfect accompianment so I pulled a pack out the cupboard and prepared it whilst the chicken sizzler cooked away. I loved the smell and was tempted to eat it whilst stirring but it needed the 2 more mins. After 5mins of cooking and 2mins standing time I removed from the microwave and placed to the side whilst my rice cooked.
The sauce is quite thick and tomato in flavour with hints of spices. I wouldn't say it was overly spicy though just perfect for my taste buds. The chicken sizzler went lovely with the rice and provided me with a substantial portion to see me through the evening and avoid snacking like I normally would do. The chicken was well presented and the marinated coating gave it a good kick. The vegetables were well cooked and soft to the bite.
I will not hesistate to purchase this on a weekly basis. I will probably have it with the rice on each occasion but that is my own personal taste though I would recommend this if the meal itself is not enough. I am happy that I can have a tasty, filling meal for under 300kcal or under 500 kcal with the rice included, it is reasonably priced and provides 2 of my 5 a day so you cannot really go wrong.
Summary: WONT HESISTATE TO BUY EVERY WEEK
