This week I’ll be reviewing Exotic Foods Butter Chicken, one of the mini-meals I take with me sometimes for work. Butter curry chicken is an Indian dish that is essentially stewed chicken pieces in a savory gravy, usually served over rice. Sometimes it’s also made with onions, too, so watch out for that. This particular version can be found at Jack’s, the discount food outlet with several locations in the New York area. I have yet to find it online. It’s pictured below.
It goes for $1.49, which obviously is very reasonable. It has fourteen percent daily total fat, fourteen percent daily saturated fat, and eighteen percent sodium, all of which are in the range that I like for my meals. You get the chicken and sauce on a bed of “rice and peas pilaf,” mostly rice, with a few peas scattered in. Although peas are (gasp!) a green vegetable, I usually don’t mind eating a couple of them. At least it’s not broccoli or cauliflower or something. I definitely recommend this product, if you can find it, and I often go out of my way to Jack’s just to see if they happen to be in stock. The only drawback might be that the portion size isn’t too big, so one of these probably won’t fill you up completely. I just wish they would start carrying this on Amazon Fresh, so I could get them delivered to me that way. You listening, Amazon Fresh? Anyway, this is one of my favorites, and well worth trying if it’s in your area.
