“ Brand: Tesco / Type: Chicken „
For £3.30 you can purchase 450g's of Tesco's Chicken Fajita's, found in the ready meals section of the refrigerators. The picture on the box looks appetizing enough which tempted me away from my normal cook-from-scratch method.
When you open the box, you find 4 tortilla wraps in a plastic wrapping and a tub of ready-cooked chicken, salsa, onions and peppers, along with a pot of sour cream, all sealed in with a film lid.
The cooking instructions are simple enough, and these fajitas could be ready in 16 - 18 minutes by oven cooking, or just 3 minutes in the microwave. I chose to oven cook.
Once cooked, the smell of the chicken and salsa mix was bland.
The taste test came next and I was less than impressed. The chicken was tasteless and watery even though it has clearly been marinated, the onions were still raw even though it had been cooked for the appropriate amount of time, the peppers didn't quite taste like peppers and the salsa... well, I've never tasted salsa like that. It was bland, had a strange texture and was quite watery. I'm not a fan of sour cream so I didn't try it. The tortilla wraps, however, were soft and delicious.
Overall, this wasn't worth the money paid for it. Either the food was bland and tasteless or doesn't taste like what you expect. I won't be buying this product again and don't recommend anybody else does.
