Discovery Kickin' Cajun Sauce
We discovered this in Home Bargains, where it was being sold for some ridiculously low cost, way under the recommended retail price: around 50 pence or so, although I would expect to pay around three times that in an ordinary supermarket.
On first appearances, the product looks good: I really like the design of the packaging. A tall, slim glass jar, in shades of fiery orange and spice, it also has a little extra container on the top, held on with cellophane wrapping, which contains real spices that are to be added at the time of cooking.
Similar in principal to the Sizzle and Stir range, it is a two-part operation: you put your dry spice mix into the pan with your chicken (although we actually used Quorn) and give this around five minutes, then you add your 'wet' part of the sauce and simmer down for approximately 20 minutes to ensure everything is cooked through. We had it served on rice, something plain which balanced the flavour out really well.
The nutritional information told me something surprising - this sauce has only 2.2g of fat per 100g, unlike a lot of its' competitors, which tend to be very high in fat.
The sauce is delicious: it's spicy, but not too hot, and the main taste that jumps out at you is the onions and peppers. In fact, if there is one drawback, the onion flavour is slightly a bit much, and gives pretty ripe body odours the following day, even with several showers! The cooking smell also really lingered in the house.
If you don't mind this, then go ahead and enjoy this sauce. I would recommend it, but maybe not the night before a job interview or first date!
