Once a week we have a Sunday roast my Mother cooks up for the family. I love a good roast and I do like a chicken dinner occasionally! Of course I and the rest of my family like gravy and we usually have Oxo chicken gravy on a roast chicken dinner but the other week my Mother bought this to try out from our local Aldi priced at 69p a tub and she felt it offered value for money.
Orange cardboard tub with an orange plastic lid that pulls on and off it with ease. On the front there is a photograph of chicken covered in this gravy and I'm told it is Chicken Quixo, Gravy Granules For Chicken Dishes and that it contains no artificial flavours, colours or msg and there is an at a glance nutritional chart on there. Other information on the back of the tub includes being told how to make it up, there is a recipe for a chasseur sauce given along with ingredients and allergy advice given, the size of the tub is stated which is 300g, there is a full nutritional chart on there and contact details for Aldi are given.
Directions For Making The Gravy Up:
Add 4 teaspoons (4 x 5ml spoons) of Quixo Gravy Granules into a measuring jug and make up to 1/2 pint (280ml) with boiling water, stir well and serve. For a thicker gravy simply add more granules.
Well to make it up you simply follow the instructions and it's simple to do so of course. The granules are a dark brown colour and quite large and you measure them out and measure boiling water over the top of them and stir it all vigorously until the lot is dissolved. Easy to do and I always add more granules as I go as I like my gravy a bit thicker than the norm!
A really simply gravy to make up and if you stir it really well it dissolves well and not once have I spotted lumps in my gravy at all. It tastes like chicken, it is seasoned and all round it is simply a very nice gravy which is rich in flavour and tasty!
