Woolworth’s Select Asian 90-second Meals for One

chinese chicken chow mein

These little microwave and go meals are super convenient for their $3.49 price, you eat it out of the bx once you microwave the pouches, plus there’s a plastic SPORK in the box for you! Perfect for my day a week at the school when I don’t know what time I’ll get to eat and whether there will be forks. I can keep these in the car for “in case”. Was stoked to pick these two up on my “big shop” last fortnight.

chow mein

The Chicken Massamum was nicer than the chow mein (the sauce and meat of the chow mein was good but I didn’t like the noodles….)

There’s also chicken stay with rice, red chicken curry and Thai green curry. The chicken pieces are quite generous and have good texture :)

I say try them!

Jamie Oliver Lemon & Herb Chicken (and a great use for leftovers!)

jamie oliver woolworths lemon herb chicken

Okay, there’s two reasons that I bought this Lemon and Herb chicken from the Jamie Oliver range at Woolies….
1. It was the day before I get my centrelink payments and I had limited funds
2. I wouldn’t pay a markup normally for something I can easily do myself (put herbs on a chook and shove cut lemon up its butt)
3. (three?) I was on my way home from a fairly intense (as they have been lately – we’re getting towards the end of the block I’ve been allotted so trying to cram some stuff in) psych session and my brain wasn’t working, so doing anything beyond throwing things in the oven was beyond me.

So, a half price, already seasoned chook (though they expect you to put salt on it and a sploosh of olive oil before you throw it in the oven) was perfect. Plus there were spuds and the like at home for a quick roast dinner (yeah, should have had greens, but whatever).

Simple and yummy dinner.

But wait, there’s more!

chicken and vege with honey mustards

Since this dear chook afforded us some leftovers (we ate the breast meat the first night), I stripped it down, got a soup pack from the farmers’ markets at Speers Point Park on Saturday, and made what could maybe be called a honey mustard chicken.

simmering vegetables

For us, it was a little over-sweet, as I think the carrots gave enough sweetness without adding the honey, but warm and delish all the same!

I served it with a pouch of quinoa and rice for added roughage. When I cleaned up Mum’s pantry on Mothers’ day, there were a number of these to slowly work through. Think I’m doing a good job at it!
