Good dumplings, shame about the meat
The dumplings and gravy were quite tasty, but the chicken was poor quality - grey and chewy. Disappointing, as it looked promising.
too much onion
Usually these are quite appetising, occasionally the chicken might be a bit tough. The dumplings are ok. But the one thing that really irritates me is how much onion there is, it's almost as if they're trying to mask the flavour of the chicken by going OTT with the amount of onion bits they shovel into the gravy.
Add a bit of water for better result
I find when I add a tablespoon of water to the dish before microwaving it, it turns out much better
My favourite ready meal could eat them all week also help me when I was ill
Extremely disappointed. This meal wasn’t enjoyable at all, the chicken was chewy and the gravy was watery and had a strange synthetic taste. Very poor quality, would not buy this again.
I don't usually eat pre-made, chilled meals choosing to cook from fresh. However, I tried this and what a lovely surprise. I was expecting it to taste processed and not like homemade chicken stew and dumplings but it's gorgeous. It's very tasty and filling. The dumplings are the way they should be and the gravy and chicken are wonderful. A lovely, warming meal for these cold months. 'Thank you, Tesco'.
I really enjoy eating this ready-meal and usually buy two or three packs with every online order. Plenty of succulent chicken breast pieces and vegetables in a tasty, savoury gravy. Really love the dumplings as well, very tasty and perfect amount for one person. If I'm feeling really hungry, I like to add either Tesco's own or Birds Eye microwave steam-fresh veg to bulk it up a bit. Makes a nice, hearty meal and a great & easy way to sneak some more veg into your diet. Would highly recommend. Thank you, Tesco.
Not nice anymore
What have they done to the recipe, very watery and the chicken was tough as old boots
Quality gone down hill
This used to be a nice meal but the last 3 I have had the chicken has been so tough where is the quality control. So disappointing when sometimes cooking is difficult and you rely on these ready meals
I thought it was very watery, the veg was cut into really small cubes, the chicken into little strips and the dumplings were doughy and inedible even after cooking for an extra 5 minutes, overall not very filling or worth the money.
