Very rarely have ready meals, but was home alone one night before Xmas and they always have those Bighams ones for 3 quid in the shop at work so went for the chicken jalfrezi. Definitely the best ready meal I’ve had.

Takes a bit more effort than your normal ready meal (half hour in the oven rather than 3 mins in the micro) and not sure I’d ever pay full whack for one, but worth a punt when they’re reduced I reckon.

The duck was unbelievable. Takeaway quality.


#11

I’m glad you enjoyed it


#12

Honestly ready meals have become much better over the years but having lived off them for a few months during my last job I would like to never touch them again!

Chinese style ready meals are nearly always awful. only really get M&S or waitrose ready meals and are always great and better than the hassle of cooking, which is always an enjoyable chore,obvs

There’s an excellent thai-style ready meal in Tesco at the minute. Basically a battered chicken breast that you take out and oven cook and chop up, then seperate microwavable rice and sauce sections. It’s a stonecold 9/10.


#15

Thing with that sort of thing is that it’s not a true ready meal. You can’t just chuck it in the microwave or oven. It’s like a ready meal/meal kit hybrid really.


#16

It’s fine. I can work the oven.


#17

It’s a two-appliance job though. Requires two sets of timing. Chopping the chicken breast up! That is a level of effort far above and beyond what should be required for a ready meal.


#18

Used to live off of ready meals, then I got into cooking and so don’t have them any more. Used to enjoy an M&S Four Cheese Ravioli, mainly because it said on the packet that it contained 98 per cent of my RDA of saturated fat.
