Recently tried by my family was this ready meal by Tesco’s Light Choices called Chicken Tikka Masala with Yellow Rice.
This is a reduced fat ready meal which has been given a ‘2 chilli’ rating, meaning ‘medium’ on the chilli heat scale. Each 400g pack has 415 calories and 11 ProPoints.
Tesco’s Light Choices Chicken Tikka Masala is described as:
Tender pieces of chicken breast in a medium spiced tomato sauce with coriander, served with yellow rice.
It’s easy to prepare. Simply stab a few holes in the clear cellophane top and oven cook for 40 minutes from frozen or in the microwave from frozen for around 10 minutes.
This meal provides a decent amount for one person. There is quite a lot of rice but the chicken is very spicy (to my tastebuds), so the rice is welcome. I always prepare extra vegetables so manage to eek out two servings with a 400g ready meal.
The older members of my family enjoyed this meal but it was a bit too spicy for my youngest.
