I love my food and I love to cook from scratch, but it’s not always practical to do so as by the time I’ve got home, fed, bathed and got the children to bed, it’s gone 8pm and I need to eat, so I do like to keep something, either batch cooked or ready made in the freezer for those nights were I need to slam something in the oven and eat it. We have recently tried a number of these types of things. The picture above is of the new Birds Eye Inspirations range. This is the sunblushed tomato, basil & oregano ones. To me, they are a bit like adult fish fingers, except instead of breadcrumbs they have a lovely tasting sauce. We had them with a fresh salad and chips on this particular night and they were very good. We both thought that for £2 it was rather a good buy!
I grew up in the 80s and during this time the chicken kiev was born. As a youngster, this used to be a staple of an evening. So when I was looking at the Birds Eye range in Tesco, I saw the Inspirations Chicken with garlic & herb sauce and the picture looked so good, but I couldn’t help being a little sceptical, all those dinners where you cut in to the chicken and all of the butter (promised on the pack) had disappeared. I needn’t have worried! This had a beautiful sauce and the chicken was cooked to perfection
This will definitely feature in my freezer from now on. Easy, tasty meal that was the best chicken kiev (sorry Birds Eye, can’t help myself, cause that’s what it is) that I have ever had.
