#1273: Sainsbury’s Basics Instant Noodles Chicken Curry Flavour

Here’s another one from Joe B. of Nottingham, England – thanks! Sainsbury’s is a chain of supermarkets in the UK that were founded in 1869. They make two lines on instant noodles – the basics and a more premium version. Let’s check it out!

Here’s the back of the pack (click image to enlarge). Says it’s veggie and vegan friendly. To prepare, empty seasoning sachet into 200ml water and boil. Break up noodle block into 2 or 3 pieces and cook for 2 1/2 minutes.

Seasoning base sachet.

Has an interesting scent that kind of makes me think of curry, but only kind of.


Finished (click image to enlarge). Added hard boiled egg and baked chicken with garlic salt. The noodles are a little more crumbly than I usually prefer, but they’re not too bad. The flavor is not as bland as many British instants; in fact, it’s got a decent taste to it. Not exactly chicken curry, but honestly not too bad. 3.25 out of 5.0 stars.UPC bar code 628635401148053.
