Fake Tandoori Chicken Supreme

Never go grocery shopping on an empty stomach.

If you do, your stomach will make the decisions and some of those might be some bad choices.

I spotted this Presidents Choice Tandoori Chicken last week at the local Loblaws. My stomach immediately said YES but my brain was saying NO! Don’t DO IT!

Well I did it. And you know, they’re kind of gross. It’s like, weird Tandoori flavor on breaded chicken strips. And although I do love my chicken finger strips once in awhile, you probably shouldn’t mess with the traditional flavor, which is just plain breaded chicken.

I did manage to salvage them because I couldn’t find anything good to dip them in. Mustard made them extremely revolting, and mayonnaise made them taste even more disgusting. I soon realized what my problem was.

I wasn’t thinking like an Indian!

And it worked.

Why did it work? Well there’s a number of reasons. For one, I love blackberry yogurt to the point where I can eat a whole container of it in a single sitting. If you’ve never done that before, I wouldn’t recommend trying it. It’s something that you have to work your way up to. Like doing 50 push ups or something. Start small, like maybe a quarter of the container, and then work your way up to half. Before you know it, you’ll be a yogurt eating machine!

Secondly, the tandoori chicken is tangy and hot out of the oven, so every bite dipped in the cool sweetness of the yogurt became a battle for taste supremacy in my mouth. Hot versus cold and sweet versus tang and the winner was myself since I was really hungry and ended up quite satisfied.

But I don’t think I’ll be buying these again.

If you do it, here’s the “recipe”.

1 box of President’s Choice Tandoori Chicken
1 container of Liberty Blackberry Yogurt
1 spoon
1 plate
1 fork (to eat with)

Cook the chicken finger strips for 20 -30 minutes, take them out of the oven and put them on a plate. Get the spoon, and heap a few dollops of blackberry yogurt on the plate. It should come out like this. Eat.
