Oh bless Tescos again as I came across these little delights in the chilled aisle. I really fancied some chicken bites or nuggets or something similar so I was contemplating cooking some chicken and coating them myself but then I saw these beauties.
Yes Free From Breaded Chicken Goujons, ooooh that would save me faffing with egg and breadcrumbs, I can just chuck these in the oven and job done. they tasted so nice with real chicken and a lovely soft breadcrumb coating. Well impressed!!!
I cooked these with some homemade chips and a little dip on the side. It was a bit of a treat day on the diet so although I did have to count hefty syns for this it was worth it..
I know there are some frozen free from chicken nuggets on the market but these are a nice change and I hope they carry on providing them as they would be perfect for a buffet or summer barbecue.......ahhhh summer eh? I'm about ready now or at least for a nice warmer sunny spring first.
So give them a go and tell me what you think, I could actually eat a lot of them but best not, so can recommend them. They are so versatile and so many ways you can serve them, I'm actually thinking they would be great in a gluten free cob, some salad, a bit of sauce and then you have a nice chicken burger. Oh I'm hungry now so off to cook something......
I will be back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday so join me then but for now take care.
Back in January I wrote about Hecks sausages and how lovely they were as well as gluten free and low fat but I've found this very similar alternative in Aldi.
They are the Chicken Chipolatas and priced at £1.89 for a pack of 10 compared to around £3.00 for the Hecks. Now I'm not setting one against each other as they both are really nice but as I do my main shop in Aldi they are convenient to buy there. If you are on Slimming World these are 1 syn per sausage as opposed to the Hecks ones being only half a syn each so not much difference there.
I really do like these and tend to cook them all up and leave some in the fridge to snack on if I get peckish, which is quite a lot at the moment. I don't know whether it's because of winter or maybe my hormones but I feel I could eat everything in sight at the moment. Maybe I'm having a growth spurt or building myself up to fight some Australian or Japanese flu thing. I hope not as I really haven't got time to be ill. I'll just keep snacking on gluten free sausages and grapes, got a craving on them at the moment which is good.....fruit yay!!
So give these a try if you are around Aldi, the price may attract you for a very samey product but let me know what you think. I will be back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday so please join me then if that interests you but for now.......
Woooooooo Hooooooooo! I'm excited. One thing I do miss now I'm on a gluten free diet is a good portion of chip shop fish and chips. So imagine my delight when I realised a local restaurant had a gluten free night AND it fell on my birthday too. Oh now I can die happy.
I was in heaven, beautiful battered fish goujons and gorgeous chips with a good portion of mushy peas on the side.. I also got treated to a gluten free dessert which the staff popped a birthday candle into for me, so kind.
I can really recommend this plaice oops I mean place.....(see what I did there). It is Ocean Fresh on The Parade in Mickleover. There is so much choice on the menu and it does include other gluten free options too if you don't particularly fancy fish and chips. The staff are super friendly and made us feel that welcome I think we will be going back.
It has kind of sat there on my doorstep this restaurant and I've only just got around to visiting.....what took ya so long Sue from the Brew??? Fun had by all and one very happy gluten free eater. If you would like any information about Ocean Fresh there website is:
restaurantsnapshot.com/OceanFresh/ you can access their Facebook page from there too.
Let me know if you have been here and what did you think? I'm still getting over. the fact I've just had chippy chips for the first time in ages. I'll be going back just to remind myself I really can eat it all again.
Thank you for reading today, pop back again tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday. For now though.....
I have written about gluten free pizza before, back in March last year but I I hadn't tried this pizza so I thought I would let you know that these are really nice.
A bit pricey me thinks at £5.25 for a slightly smallish pizza but it is very nice, great quality. Still wondering whether it justifies being over a fiver though. I remember going to Pizza Express on the High Street and nearly fainting at the end of our meal. So expensive.
I was grabbing at the opportunity of joining in with a pizza lunch today so I was in the Co-op and this was the only gluten free choice. My family were having Papa Johns takeaway pizzas and at present there isn't a gluten free choice with them. Behold though, after talking to a very helpful chap at our local branch he did say that they would be introducing a gluten free pizza base this coming summer. Yippee!!
I'm pleased about that because I like Papa Johns, the pizza's do look so tasty and I hope the quality of the gluten free one is as good as the rest. I've had a lot of Pizza Hut's gluten free pizzas and they are a bit to be desired, not bad if you chuck as many toppings on as possible but our local shop always seem to burn it.
I'll carry on doing the research, it's no trouble, I mean it's not great for the diet but it's important to find the perfect gluten free pizza I think, leave it with me. I can recommend this Pizza Express one, do check the prices in your local supermarkets as sometimes they can vary so it could be on offer or available at a cheaper price or just throw caution to the wind, blow the finances and treat yourself, does taste delicious.
Thank you for popping along here today, come back for a bit of Autism chatter tomorrow on Autism Support Saturday. For now though.......
