“ Brand: Sainsbury's / Type: Other Spreads „
I've recently started really getting into having a jacket potato for dinner but had exhausted all the usual filling ideas, then I remembered the sandwich filler that was in the fridge.... Sainsbury's Basics Chicken and sweet corn. Surely if it was good enough for a sandwich it would be good enough for a spud too!!
I don't buy much of the basics range but after a few successful downgrades I thought I'd give this deli filler a try, especially for a bargain price of £1.29 for 300g!
The product is quite simply Sweetcorn & chicken breast in a seasoned mayonnaise- exactly what it says on the tub.
The tub is very basic, however I'd rather save some cash than have fancy packaging that inevitably ends up in the recycling bin! (All packaging suitable to recycle).
Unfortunately it is not suitable for people who have allergies against the following:Eggs, Egg Yolk, Mustard & Mustard Seeds. It May also contain Nuts.
Nutritional Information per 100g (1/3 of the pack):
Cal 195 Fat 16.1g Sat Fat 1.2g Sugar 0.9g Salt 0.5g
This works out to be 3 weight watcher points.
Although it is not the healthiest option I don't think it is too fatty or calorific for this type of product. 1/3 of the pot would definitely be enough for a potato topping or sandwich filling.
The taste isn't the most delicious chicken and sweet corn I have ever eaten but nor is it the worst and for the price I feel it is good value for money.
I discovered that by adding a pinch of pepper, it really adds to the flavour, I have added a pinch of curry powder before and this was also quite nice, just an extra kick for an otherwise rather bland mix.
It is suggested that once open you consume within 2 days- I am not suggesting that you eat out of date food, but I have had my opened tub in the fridge for about 4 days before and it has still been OK (at your own risk!)
Overall I would recommend this especially if you are on a budget or if you get through a lot of it for packed lunches/parties etc.
An added bonus if all that wasn't enough.... It's produced in the UK for those aware of their carbon footprint!
