This is another chilled snacking treat I picked up with a voucher Tesco sent me, a teriyaki chicken noodle pot, which is actually one in a wide range of noodle and rice pots on offer in the chilled aisle. I'm always keen to pick up some teriyaki, so it was nice to take this convenient little tub into work and pop it in the microwave during lunch.
You get a fair amount of noodles in this pot, and they're pretty good. Not slimy, quite firm, and the sauce sticks to them quite well, meaning there's never a totally bland mouthful. There are quite a few vegetables spread throughout as well to add a bit of texture, but I wouldn't say they stand out too much overall. The chicken is the best part of the whole experience, there are some quite large, tender chunks that are given a sweet, saucy zing by their coating of sauce. Problem is there just wasn't enough chicken to go around, and not too much sauce either. This is by no means a flavourless noodle pot, the sauce that's in there goes pretty far and injects all the ingredients with flavour, but it's just a little too dry for my liking. This noodle pot is certainly a nice, easy to prepare lunch, but it could do with a bit more balance in the ingredients. Worth a shot for all you noodle fans out there though.
My rating: 3/5
