A Tasty Chicken Surprise From Taste Inc!

I was recently sent a set of Taste Inc. 100% Chargrilled Chicken Fillets to taste and review. I admit whilst I love trying new food treat I was a little bit skeptical. I like to cook my meat from scratch generally and limit the number of pre-packaged meat meals I have in my diet. However I was assure that this was 100% Chargrilled Chicken Fillet with no hidden meat extras.

Taste Inc Chargrilled Chicken

These Taste Inc chicken fillets are exactly what they say on the packet, a simple, mini inner breast chicken fillet. It comes in two flavours, Original and Spicy, and is chargrilled over sustainably sourced charcoal. You can actually taste the chargrilled flavour!  The product is completely natural, high in protein and low in fat and so it can be eaten as a snack, in a sandwich or in a salad. I’m also sure that fitness fanatics will love these. Here’s short video review (accidentally filmed in portrait but still a good video):

I won’t necessarily stop buying raw chicken to cook at home but for picnics and packed lunches and any time-sensitive events these are a great quality tasting alternative and they are healthy which is key!

Garlic and Herb Encrusted Chicken with Mr Crumb

Review by Lola Agondogo-Hegba

I recently received the a sample of the latest offering from 2017 Gold Great Taste Award winner Irish stuffing maker Mr.Crumb, their Fresh ‘Roasted Garlic and Herb’. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the stuffing is hand produced in small batches and blends onions and garlic sautéed in Irish butter with fresh breadcrumbs sourced from a local bakery. What a delicious sounding treat and I couldn’t wait to feed the family with this new foodie find.

Mr-Crumb Stuffing

The recommended recipe was to try garlic & herb topped salmon but I didn’t follow the advice by adding the stuffing on a salmon fish as suggested. I added it on to a chicken instead – yes I know usually stuffing is supposed to go INSIDE the chicken but I wanted to try something new and was inspired by the recommendation.

The stuffing was  flavourful, I didn’t need to add more stock or spices to boost its flavour, it had enough salt and spices. I put the stuffing all over the chicken (as well as inside) and popped it in the oven, by the time it had cooked it was still smooth not crunchy or dry and it melted in the mouth. This stuffing was gorgeous, full of flavour with a perfect balance of ingredients that were perfectly mixed. I would have thought that the garlic would override all the other flavours but it really did not. The+- stuffing tasted fresh and moreish and the family really enjoyed it, including the kids.

The 225g pack serves four costs around £2 and can be found in the chiller aisle next to the Yorkshire puds in Morrison’s and in all good independent grocery retailers nationwide.  Mr Crumb’s famous Sage and Onion stuffing is also available in ASDA and Sainsbury’s.
