When I was in Asda on the way to work a couple of mornings ago, I noticed this Piri Piri Chicken meal for one and having forgotten my lunch I decided to give it a go.
It’s part of the chosen by you range and is chicken with long grain rice, red onion, peppers, spinach and coriander all served up in a spicy piri piri sauce.
It’s one of those meals you tear a hole in the pouch then put in the microwave for a couple of minutes so I was quite interested to see how it tasted as I don’t tend to use the microwave much.
In all honesty it was quite nice, maybe a little bit on the bland side, It could have done wtih a good glug of tabasco or something like that and maybe a bit more black pepper. It had a nice little bit of heat but nothing tingly.
The consistency was nice, it was very moist and all of the veg had cooked well, the peppers were still nice and crunchy and tasted nice and fresh. There was plenty of each veg and a good sized portion of rice. The chicken pieces were nice and chunky and there was plenty of them, it would have been nice had they had a bit of flavouring or marinade on as they didn’t really soak up the sauce.
It cost £2.50 which isn’t too bad, the traffic light system on the front gives green light for everything apart from the salt…although I think the 12.g of sugar is way to much.
