Schwartz 2-in-1 Recipe Mixes Review (Part 3)



So the lovely people over at Schwartz  (via Mumsnet) have asked me to do a product test of these 2-in-1 Recipe Mixes for chicken. It's ideal because we LOVE chicken in this house and I'd love to try new ways of serving it to my kids that are quick and easy, and maybe even let them help!


Before I start let me say that all views and opinions in this review are my own. I have not been paid to make this review, but I have been given these 5 packets for free. 

Review 3: Southern style crunchy chicken bites + BBQ dip


The kids aren't fed up of chicken yet! They're liking trying different ways of serving chicken and the thought of making our own Southern Style Chicken had them begging for me to get on and make it

What it says on the packet:


This is suggested for 4 servings and claims it takes just 20 minutes to cook. Looking at the directions on the packet this is likely to be the quickest and easiest of the packets so far

Cooking:


Honestly, there isn't much cooking involved in this one - part from things to go with it (we had potato wedges, onion rings and mushy peas). It was very simple to follow.

If I could change anything about this packet I would have more of the crunchy topping. It looked a little sparse on the on the diced chicken I used. maybe it wouldn't have done if I had used strips instead of chunks. That said, once it was cooked the chicken did not lack in either taste or crunch.

How did it taste?

It was nice. The Hubby declared it the best of the three I've reviewed so far! My eldest ate the lot and polished his plate, my fussy middle child said it was too spicy but still ate it all (so it can't have been THAT spicy) and even the baby had a good go easting most of his chicken. They all LOVED the BBQ Sauce and said they wished they had more of it.

This is one that I would buy again. I can think of other things we could do with it, like serve it in a wrap with some salad or slices of cooked pepper, or try the mix on other portions of chicken or even pork.

Kids rating: 4/5

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
