Are Seriously Tasty Pies seriously tasty pies?

Seriously Tasty Pies Roast Chicken Pie Review

When it comes to supermarket pie selections, ASDA seems to have really upped its game. Here is another offering from ASDA, this time in the form of a Seriously Tasty Pies Roast Chicken pie. At just £1.00, this is a total bargain! Or is it?

Taking this "big fill" "heat and eat" pie out of the oven, it's taken on a nice golden colour, and the puff pastry is glistening quite nicely. The pastry does look a little light and thin though, but the condition of the pie is good.


In this cross-sectional view, you can see the thin-ness of the pastry - I'd prefer it to be a bit thicker. The pie isn't completely filled to capacity - I wouldn't call it "big fill" - but the air:filling ratio is still satisfactory. The chicken is not at all chewy, but it's the consistency and taste of the gravy that is the main selling point of this pie for me. It is smooth, tasty and the perfect thickness. The content is certainly tasty and the roast chicken flavour very unique and not something I'd tried before.


Overall, this pie was very cheap, and very tasty. However, the pastry was a bit thin, and although the gravy was nice, it didn't have that authentic "home-made" feel. The chunks of chicken were also quite small. I would definitely buy this pie again though, because the cheapness more than made up for this pie's faults.

  1. Had the Classic steak pie from Seriously tasty pies. There was hardly any meat in it, just mush. The pastry was very nice but no filling. Rubbish.

  3. "seriously tasty pasties traditional" described as "a blend of minced beef (why minced?), potato, onion, carrot and swedewrapped in a golden puff pastry" with a very alluring and appetising picture of said pasty on its wrapping. The actuality is a shortcrust pastry (puff pastry is flaky and light - this is solid and dense)stuffed with a heavily peppered solid GREY sludge - this product contradicts the product description and trading standards regs on so many levels it is frightening. I would not be surprised to hear that the protein content of this abomination is derived from horse/squirrel/badger or other roadkill - AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!
