I used to love these dinners when my hub a chippie tea. Used to be skin on chicken and better roast potatoes. Potatoes are now tiny. I get people don't want skin on but you can always take it off, in my opinion the skin used to add to the flavour and I like chicken skin. Just don't buy them anymore!
Good value for money
Very good quality - could have been a little more quantity - but overall very good value for money.
Yuk , Not good quality product .
Used to be better
These used to be so much better. However, they've changed since they first came into production, when they had no connection with Aunt Bessie's. The stuffing ball is always completely dry and hard, and only a couple of the potatoes are a reasonable size. The others are tiny, stuck together and rock hard, whether it's done in the oven or the microwave. The chicken, vegetables and gravy are ok but without much taste. I would try Tesco's version but theirs only has reformed slices of chicken - not very appetising either.
Funny tasting watery gravy. Funny tasting stuffing. Hard carrots and peas and all the bits of potatoes (and they were bits,like unused chopped off bits)didn’t even make 1 normal potato. Chicken dry. I used to always buy the Tesco own frozen chicken dinner and had delivered with my shopping which has always been lovely but not been able to get with my delivery since 2019! Tesco,please make available,again!
Tasteless and unpleasant.
I've tried this a couple of times, but sadly both were unpleasant experiences. Incredibly bland, the chunk of chicken was very tough and dry, and even the spuds were horrible. Shame, as being disabled and housebound, I miss a tasty roast, but this is simply not. Tesco - I expect much better!
Mini is right........
.......at least about the potatoes! They were marked on the packet as "Aunt Bessie's mini roasties" and mini they certainly were! My elderly neighbour, who uses these frozen meals, said : there aren't enough here to make one good spud. To be fair the rest of the dinner was very nice, good gravy, stuffing ball and nice chunk of chicken. Double the amount of potatoes and it would be five stars.
