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)

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
