Moroccan chicken with Knorr Naturally Tasty: Meal Ideas

Having quick and simple and healthy meals is essential for us a family, we are always on the go, so at the end of the day when it comes to dinner I want to put in the minimal effort required to achieve a tasty meal for the family, often I tend to pre-cook ahead just to save time. So I was delighted when I was given the opportunity to try Knorr Naturally Tasty, a mix spices and herb blends with no artificial preservatives and contains only natural ingredients.

I wasn't sure what to expect,  so I was really keen to give them a try, Knorr Naturally tasty come in six different varieties from Moroccan Chicken, Spaghetti Bolognese,Chilli Con Carne,Lasagne, Beef Tagine and Tuna Napolitana.

I love Morrocan food so this was my obvious choice to start with, I loved that on the front of the packet it had a shopping list of ingredients that I would need to get started, it made it so much easy to see first hand what I needed rather than searching for instructions on the back of the packet.

I was amazed how simple the entire cooking process was, I browned off the chicken and then added the Knorr Moroccan Chicken pack, followed by the tinned tomatoes and spinach (we did have the recommend courgette at home) after we added the recommended amount of water and the consistency was perfect, I left the chicken to cook on a low heat for 30 minutes you can cook in less time but I like my chicken very soft, it was really that simple, no cutting chopping or peeling as the Knorr pack has everything you would possibly need in the packet from onions, garlic, and spices.

The verdict - I was surprised how amazing the Moroccan Chicken looked, I served it with Couc Cous and was delighted with the overall taste, it was delicious and very moreish, even the kids cleaned their plates so that's a really good sign and my husband loved it, I will most defiantly be buying this again, I really looking forward to trying the other dishes my weekly menu planning has just taken or a completely new look thanks to Knorr Naturally Tasty. 

Look out for the hashtag #knorrnaturallytasty to see how I get on with the other Knorr Naturally Tasty dishes, along with my verdict. Knorr Naturally Tasty are available from most major supermarkets and cost £0.89p. For more information check out www.knorr.co.uk/naturally-tasty

To celebrate National Curry Week I was given the opportunity to try some of Sainsbury's delicious curry range, We have been trying to cut out meat, so we opted for the vegetarian variety. With so much to choose from we were spoilt for choice, I chose some tasty Vegetable Biryani, Pilau Rice, Indian Snack Selection, Bombay Potatoes, Garlic & Coriander Naan.

The nation has fully embraced and continued to evolve classic Indian cuisine throughout the decades. With popular dishes such as Tandoori and the Balti.But as UK tastebuds become increasingly sophisticated and with a greater demand for authenticity, more flavoursome and exotic varieties are becoming available, further establishing Indian food as the nation’s favourite.

A recent survey, commissioned by Sainsbury’s, revealed that alongside cupboard favourites such as chilli, ginger, paprika and cumin, we are also opting for more exotic ingredients when it comes to cooking curry.
