Schwartz 2-in-1 Recipe Mixes Review (Part 4)




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 4: Chicken Tikka with Mint & Cucumber Raita

>> Product Link <<

Sometimes I thought we'd never get this one done, but only because of my own ineptitude. My eldest was quite excited to be trying Indian style food since it's not something we have a lot of.

What it says on the packet:

The packed suggests that this serves 4 people and takes just 40 minutes to cook.

I think this is a little misleading as it also says in the directions that ideally it should be left to marinate over night.

That said, it CAN be done in 40 mins if you just marinate for the minimum 30 mins.

Cooking:

This was very easy to prepare and cook. Each part actually takes very little time indeed. The marinade smelled fantastic too. Although I was most impressed by there being almost NO wastage from the marinade once I took the chicken out to cook.

The dip was also incredibly simple to put to together and was ready and chilling in plenty of time to be just right to serve with the chicken.

How did it taste?


We are not a family of curry eaters. I do enjoy a curry but the children have always found it too spicy for them. Until now none of them would eat it. Sadly, my 3yo and 1yo were still not keen, the 3yo saying it was too spicy and the dip had too much cucumber in. They did give it a go though.

 My 5yo, on the other hand, thought it was delicious and I have to agree with him (and admit I helped he younger boys with theirs, too good to waste)

Kid rating: 3/5 (but personally I'd give it 4/5)

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

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…
