Schwartz Thai 7 Spice & Jamaican Jerk Review & Recipe

I was recently sent 3 different varieties of Schwartz Perfect Shake's seasonings, Jamaican Jerk, Fajita and Thai 7 Spice. I have mentioned before how I have personally never used spices to cook with before, but after trying these, I now have purchased a spice rack and more spices!

A selection of some of the ingredients used, including the spice mixes, garlic, soy sauce and maple syrup.

This post is a review on the Schwartz Perfect Shake Jamaican Jerk and Thai 7 Spice flavourings, on Friday I used the third spice I was sent - the Fajita Perfect Shake seasoning, you can read the review for that spice here.

Tonight I used the Thai 7 Spice Perfect Shake and the Jamaican Jerk Perfect Shake seasoning to make my own chicken in a bag dish, accompanied with rice.

This is what you will need
2 tablespoons of oil.
1 tablespoon frozen garlic.
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce.
1 tablespoon of golden syrup.
1 teaspoon of Thai 7 Spice Perfect Shake or Jamaican Jerk Perfect Shake.
Chicken breast.
Multi-use cooking bags.

First you mix all the ingredients together in a bowl. including the seasoning of your choice, first I used the Thai 7 Spice Perfect Shake.

 You then coat the chicken with the coating you have created.

(Or even better still you could marinate the chicken with the coating and leave in the fridge for a few hours then place into a bag after, I didn't have time to do that this evening.)
I then sprinkled a little bit more of the spice over the chicken, this time I have used pictures using the Jamaican Jerk Perfect Shake. 

This is how the chicken looks like once coated, I know it doesn't look like its all coated but it does cover every part.

I then placed the 2 separate lot's of chicken chunks into 2 bags, one is the Thai 7 Spice Perfect Shake and the other bag is the Jamaican Jerk Perfect Shake.

 I then placed the bag in the electric oven at 180 but if your using gas use gas mark 7 for 45-60 minutes, and then I served with rice, here is the finishing product.

It tastes lovely, I used rice but it would also be great with wedges or salad. The golden syrup gives it a sweet sticky taste. 

Its also a very easy dish to make, and what's even better is you're making your own and not buying the pre-made ones in the shop, so you can make whatever one you want :)

So why not try making your own cook in a bag dish?
For Spud I calmed the spice down with mayonnaise. I got this recipe off my amazing Mum, thanks Mum it wasn't as good as yours but no one's cooking is as good as Mum's cooking!

Until next time,
