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)
