Tasty comforting does the job
Tasty comforting does the job for a quick comforting low calorie meal. Chickens abit rubbery but so is most frozen chicken. Defo buying again
Tasted delicious wouldn't know it was a ready meal
Tasted delicious wouldn't know it was a ready meal! Cooked it in the oven even though it recommends microwave on the packaging and it didn't dry out at all. I'm quite a fussy eater usually as well and I ate every last bite!
Bought 2 as a low calorie option for lunchtime. Wish I'd not bothered. The chicken was absolutely awful - more gristle than chicken. The sauce had no flavour whatsoever. Everthing tasted watered down. Can't comment on the mushrooms as there weren't any in the pack! Won't be buying this again and the second one went in the bin. Even my husband wouldn't eat this and he will eat just about anything.
More mushrooms needed! A bit bland.
It says Chicken and mushroom casserole. Adequate chicken but where was to mushrooms? Too much sweet potato, carrot and Swede crush. Would have preferred less of the crush and more mushrooms and chunky carrots and Swede. Also quite bland tasting. Appreciate healthy foods, low in calories but a little seasoning would be good.
Good concept, poor production
Oh dear Tesco...have your taste testers lost their tastebuds? We KNOW you can do better than this. The basic concept is 5* excellent, but in practice you failed. 1. Come on, every half way decent homecook knows how to introduce healthy flavour into gravy. Your effort was a minus 10. You want some tips, just email me. 2. Great selection of veg, tastes like homemade - before seasoning and finish. Again, you've not prepped them to their best advantage. And 3 slices of mushroom?? in a pack that advertises itself as a 'chicken and mushroom' casserole?? 3.SUGAR?! Nearly 2 teaspoons of sugar?? In a meal that features sweet potato already? I don't know any homecook who laces their casseroles with sugar. 4. SALT? Where was it? Black pepper? Where was it? 5. FAT? Where was it? All red/orange root veg like sweet potatoes and carrots need fat for their Vit A to be absorbed. by the body. Fat in moderation is not the culprit in obesity, too much carb-laden food is. 6. FOOD MILES? Thai chicken, prepped in Irish Republic, shipped to UK....Now is the time to be using British chicken - and cutting back on carbon emissions. You've got this meal all out of balance. Good concept but failed execution. Way to put people off healthier options. My 3 stars are for the concept and nice veg.
For less than 200 calories this is a quick filling lunch.
better than expected
Tasted nice and was filling for the calories
Not nice at all.
When I saw this I thought great, at last a low calorie, low carb ready meal, looks like just the type of meal I`d like, unfortunately it was bland,watery, no taste to it at all, put loads of salt & pepper on ,hoping it would bring a bit of flavour to it, but no. I just couldn`t even force it down, its probably the worst ready meal I have ever tasted. While I wasn't expecting it to be out of this world, I was expecting it to be a least palatable.
Tasty, filling healthy diet food.
If you are expecting a typical cheap ready meal packed with salt, fat, carb-heavy potato/noodles/pasta and flour-thickened gravy at twice the calories or more don't buy this. If you want delicately flavoured tender chicken casserole with vegetables served with sweet potato, carrot and swede crush that is both tasty and low calorie, this is the dish for you. Yes the sweet potato, carrot and swede crush is a little watery, but that is because it isn't carby-potato. The salt content may be a little less than you are used to, but that is healthier, we should all be reducing our salt. I added some ground black pepper to it. You can add salt if you want to. You are getting half a kilo of food to fill you up for less than 200 calories, what's not to like.
Excellent if on a diet
This filling meal has all green traffic lights and only 193 calories so isan excellent choice if you are on a diet. However, in order to get a green star for salt content they haven’t added any so you will definitely need to add salt or another seasoning like knorr aromat. However, other than needing to add salt it was tasty and satisfying for a diet meal, sort of like the Iceland slimming world meals but Tesco’s version.
