5 chicken dishes from Woolies to beat loadshedding

By TASTE, 6 July 2015

As we’re slowly becoming accustomed to unsolicited candlelit dinners thanks to loadshedding, we should, in the least, have a delicious hot meal when the light flickers and fades. So when your area is next scheduled for loadshedding and you have less 30 minutes before darkness strikes – buy one of these Woolworths chicken dishes that can be readied in no time at all.

Chicken curry
This dish stars chicken and butternut in a fragrant curry sauce. All you have to do is pop it in the microwave or heat it on the hob. Ready in under 10 minutes.

Traditional chicken pie
Beneath the flaky, buttery pastry lies a creamy chicken filling, fragrant with herbs. Ready in 30 minutes.

Sweet-and-sticky chicken
Love your chicken sweet and sticky? Then try this chicken dish featuring Asian noodles and a few crunchy greens. It’s enough to serve a family of four and can be done in five minutes.

Chicken-and-butternut crumble
As its name suggests, chicken and butternut are the star ingredients here, with red onion petals, crushed sweet potato, spinach and granola for some crunch. Ready in 30 minutes.

Rotisserie chicken
There’s no going wrong with this heat-and-eat rotisserie chicken, marinated in fragrant lemon and herbs. Serve with a no-fuss side salad.
