      Arguably the most flavoursome ready meal on the market AND it's healthy!

      Part of ASDA's 'Chosen By You' range, the Indonesian Style Chicken Satay is amongst the best of the ready meals on the market. In fact, this range of pouched fresh ready meals from ASDA are arguably one of the best on the market, surpassing many supermarket's top own brands.

      This particular meal is so incredibly flavoursome for a ready meal, you would be forgiven for thinking that a chef had just rustled it up during the morning of your purchase. The first mouthful fills your mouth with an infusion of lime and spices and the hint of chilli is enough for your body temperature to raise a notch. The initial aroma is dominated by peanuts, which acts as a great contrast to the taste. The bulk of the meal is made up of rice and chicken which ensures a nice lunchtime refuelling of carbohydrates and protein. Thrown into the mix is a good assortment of fruit and vegetables - peppers, pak choi and baby spinach which ensure, as the packet clearly advertises - "1 of 5 a day per pack" - another box ticked. At worse, the chicken can be slightly bland, but with such a good quality sauce, this is masked and unlike many ready meals, it is neither too dry nor too watery, the Goldilocks zone of moisture content!

      Away from the ingredients, this product will set you back a meagre £2.50 and as I have come to realise with this range, can often found in the 'Reduced Items' section. This is presumably due to the fresh ingredients which the range uses, reducing shelf life, as opposed to being unpopular with shoppers. The particular meal I tested whilst writing this review was generously reduced in price to £1.48. The product is easy to cook at lunchtime, just tear a little 2cm cut into the top of the pouch and plonk in your 900W microwave for 3mins 45secs. No condiments required. They've got the flavour spot on. Hats off to ASDA.
