Birds Eye eat positive Chicken Tikka & vegetables
This meal constitutes half of your five a day fruit and vegetables and is a natural source of vitamins giving you a nice balanced diet. It is tasty with a generous spicy sauce which has quite a good heat to it.
microwave instructions for this pack are as follows:-
Remove cardboard cover, place the dish on a microwave plate without piercing the top as the top has a vent for this purpose and this aids the steaming process. Cook on full power for 8 - 9mins for 850w 9 - 10mins for 750w raising cooking time accordingly for lower watt microwaves.
It also gives a warning that the pack may loose its shape in the cooking process but the contents will be fine, if you follow these simple instructions. Do be careful when opening the pack once removing it from the microwave as the contents will be piping hot.
This meal is satisfying and is very pleasantly flavoured. It gives you a Indian flavour which is very rich and it is very tasty and the chicken is a very nice piece of real chicken breast which is sliced up into smaller bite sized pieces which is characteristic of tikka meals. The vegetables mostly green beans and peppers and some other vegetables are cooked through but still left with a bite so they are still nice and flavoursome, the whole thing is well cooked I enjoyed the flavours of this dish and relished every mouthful. It left me with a feeling that I would buy it again. I felt satisfied that I had eaten a meal and was not left feeling hungry.
This starts right from the start of the cooking process, as you can smell it cooking and the aroma moves around the room transporting you to the Indian punjab with its lovely tikka sauce. It has a delicate spicy aroma which smelt delicious making you eager for the dish to finish cooking. Once you start to serve up the smell becomes more apparent giving you a really powerful aroma which sets your taste buds going. I am very glad I chose this product as I think the aroma is very much a part of the eating process and if something smells this good it has to taste even better, which of course it did.
The look of the product before cooking looked quite pleasant with the chicken sitting on top of the indian vegetable mixture in small pieces and the sauce covering both. It looked nice and tasty even before cooking. After the cooking process the food still held its shape and gave a good texture looked good to eat and smelt and tasted wonderful.
It did not give the appearance of preformed food which of course it was not and looked like something you would have done yourself if you could have been bothered. The quality of this product showed through right from the start.
I really enjoyed this product and for a small fee of £1.50 per pack I thought my find in Farm foods was well worth it. I will be buying this product again as a good back up in my freezer.
Also available is the Italian chicken in mediterranian sauce with penne pasta.
Equally good and so very tasty.
I am now on the look out for more of these meals in this range.
