I bought these disgusting items to try as an alternative to the, far superior, Quorn Lattice. I cooked them as instructed and when they were removed from the oven, I sat down on my sofa ready to eat. I had chips too, so I ate those first. I cut into the en croute and raised the food to my mouth ready for what was supposed to be a delicious bite of chicken wrapped in bacon, with a flavoursome cheese sauce and pastry. Woe to me, when that food touched my tongue. I couldn't taste the chicken, bacon or pastry through the over-powering disgust with my discovery that the cheese sauce was in fact CREAM CHEESE! Cream cheese is not cheese sauce, Tesco! I have been looking forward to these en croutes since Wednesday, eyeballing me every time I dared gaze into the freezer. My meal was ruined, as I couldn't salvage the rest of the en croute from the cream cheese. In a moment of madness, the designers dared slice the bottom of the chicken breast asunder and force the cream cheese to fester beneath, ensuring that one could not take a single bite without the lumpy, monstrous fromage tainting every taste bud. My meal was ruined and the rest of my night will follow suit, all thanks to liberal use of the term "cheese sauce". Cream cheese is a terrible, rancid creation mixed from the lumpy, soured, putrid milk of hells own satanic bovine hoard! Avoid.
The chicken was so rubbery I could only eat a small portion. The chicken was also teastless and I will not be buying this product again.
Please don't buy this. Please .
Good god. If I could score this a -100 I would. Please, if you read this don’t buy it. Awful awful taste and smell. Chicken hard and chewy. Pastry crunchy on outside and soggy on inside. Sauce non existent. Complete waste of money, threw half in bin. I never write reviews of anything but I feel very strongly about this. Please don’t buy it.
There are two portions in the pack and they overlap, so they cannot be separated. When cooked the portion which is on the bottom of the two is part raw. The packaging is too small.
TAsty and a little bit different
oh dear I've just read the other reviews !! I loved it. I served with new potatoes and brocoli.I covered with foil for half of cooking time to prevent burning.Very tasty.
A poor choice
Not very nice at all! There’s an overwhelming taste and smell of smoked bacon (which I never buy) and it tainted everything. The tiny piece of chicken was tough because it cooked before the pastry was cooked enough... I too should have read the ingredients, but the headline should perhaps read ‘Chicken AND Bacon’ en croute.....? Save your pennies and buy something else.
Dont buy chicken en croute!!!!
One word... Revolting!!!!!! Couldnt find any bacon and no cheese . Soggy pastry .just awful . Score of nil !!!!
Had an overpowering bacon taste, my own fault shou
Had an overpowering bacon taste, my own fault should have read the ingredience before purchasing.
Texture of the meat is mushy even when cooked thoroughly
