"Not the BBQ chic-KING but nice enough"

Name: Iceland BBQ Chicken breast fillets

Price: £2 pack of 6

Where to find: Frozen meat aisle

Verdict: Tasty and cheap but not very 'meaty'

Nutrition: 125kcal/ 6g fat per fillet

The fillet of chicken is average size at 11cm long. Unfortunately the fillet isn't chunky at only 2cm thick. The BBQ glaze is red and sticky providing you don't overcook it. If you overcook the chicken, it turns caramelised which isn't a bad thing but it loose the flavour a little.

The glaze is sweet rather than spicy and traditional BBQ. The glaze only covers the top of the chicken but it's enough to give it a nice flavour. It also smells nice; quite smoky.

The chicken itself tastes nice and is very juicy but it's evident that it isn't quality meat. It appears to be minced chicken (like a cheap chicken nugget), rather than the fresh kind of chicken you get from Birds Eye Chicken Grills or KFC, where the chicken flakes away in strips as you cut into it. The meat is soft and the juiciness probably comes from added water content. It does have a descent bite to it and melt in the mouth. The glaze gives it the sweetness that it needs as well so no complaints here.

The only aspect I was slightly worried about was how grey the chicken meat looked. I mean grey. It had none of the fresh white appearance of fresh or good quality frozen chicken. Also, when eating it, there is the odd little lump of fat (it's quite rare). Still, it's enough to put me off and make me cautious eating the rest of the chicken.

The chicken cooks straight from frozen in about 15-20 mins on a heat of 240.

For kids, it's simple, tasty and nutritious; being low in fat and calories. For adults, it probably isn't going to be satisfying but for £2, you can afford to have 3!

On the other hand, I think the meat content in Mcdonalds chicken nuggets is of greater quality than this.
