Two dinners featuring chicken

This was a recent Thursday night dinner, takeaway from the shops: a Pavarotti pie from Jesters and a chicken low GI salad from Sumo Salad. The chicken low GI salad is my current favourite from Sumo – it’s got tasty bits I love – crisp cos lettuce, grilled sliced chicken, sundried tomatoes and Danish fetta, which is so pleasurably creamy and salty. According to Sumo Salad, this particular salad’s been their Number 1 since its introduction in 2003. I didn’t get through the whole chicken salad, and ended up eating the rest for breakfast the next day (yes, salad for breakfast).

The Pavarotti pie’s filling is skin-free chicken with bacon and mushrooms in an Italian-style cheese sauce. It was very tasty, but I must say a noticeably lacking in chicken, bacon and mushrooms. The filling consisted most of the cheese sauce. It was thick and tasty, but I was disappointed with the lack of chicken. My favourite part of the pie was the pastry. I know some people who don’t like Jesters pies precisely because of the pastry, but it’s what I like best about them – it’s more chewy and flaky (less messy to eat than a traditional pie), and, according to Jesters, made from pastry shortening that contains less than 1% trans fats.

And another dinner featuring chicken – a chicken noodle stir-fry, which Jac flavoured with sriracha chilli sauce. Plenty of chicken chunks, Chinese green vegetable, carrots and onion. I stirred soy sauce through the noodles before eating, and they were very good indeed.
