Not as Bad as I Expected
With the latest rash of stealth 'new improved' recipe changes I found this product massively unimpressive compared to how it was before.
NEW RECIPE TOTALLY DIFFERENT DEFINITELY NOT BETTER
We have been buying the previous recipe Chicken Jalfrezi most weeks for a couple of years so I can state that this `New Recipe` is definitely not an improvement either in the amount of chicken or the flavour. When we first started buying the previous version we were amazed by the amount and size of the chicken pieces and really pleased with the flavour of the Jalfrezi - it was excellent value for money especially because of the amount of chicken. This new recipe has somehow reduced the chicken not only to ridiculously small dark coloured pieces but also to much less of it but with the contents of the tins only reduced by 8 or 10 grams less than the previous recipe. The contents have gone from the amount of chicken having amazed us to much less very small dark coloured pieces - the colour of the chicken and size of the pieces suggests to me that inferior pieces of chicken are being used - previously immediately recognisable `large chicken coloured pieces` - now `very small dark coloured bits`. And also the Jalfrezi sauce is completely different - more like a cross between a Madras curry and a Massala - slightly `slimy` - nothing like the flavour and sauce texture of the previous recipe. These changes have resulted in the new Chicken Jalfrezi not being appetising to me so we will not be buying it as regularly - although a family member does like it so it will occasionally be on our shopping order. Obviously curry / food like this is definitely a personal taste matter and I have been eating authentic Indian restaurant curries for 50 years so for me to have liked the previous version of this had been initially surprising and a compliment to the excellent Tesco product - but the change in recipe has meant that I now cannot enjoy a Jalfezi from Tesco.

Excellent tasting curry with plenty of chicken .Highly recommended for camping trips, or when you don't want to cook.
Too hot for my taste.
I'm only giving 4* because the new Jalfrezi isn't as good as the old one in my opinion. I like mild curries but this one is too 'hot' for my liking, so I won't be partaking. I'm disappointed.
Why are you using Thai chicken????? Is this a mist
Why are you using Thai chicken????? Is this a mistake? Will not be buying.
New but not improved
Changed recipe. Less chicken than before, different colour than than before and worse taste than before. Very disappointed overall. Might buy again but probably when I have forgotten how bad this is.
