Chipotle Chilli Chicken Jerky (M&S) By @SpectreUK

Well, here we are in 2019! As traditional in January many people will be joining or rejoining gyms everywhere to either start a healthy lifestyle or at least burn off some of the over indulgence that comes with Christmas and the winter season. This new 'eat well' Chipotle Chilli Chicken Jerky from M&S has 10.8g of protein per 25g packet, which is great for building muscles when lifting weights. It's also low in fat and calories to try to keep the weight off those bums and tums!

This Chipotle Chilli Chicken Jerky is Chipotle chilli marinated dried seasoned chicken breast with spices. And from the ingredients there are plenty of spices, from smoked paprika to Cayenne pepper, black pepper, cumin and of course Chipotle chilli. I was expecting some big flavour from these small red orange pieces of chicken jerky. There was a smoky paprika and chilli smell on peeling back the top of the packet. I'd forgotten how tough little dry pieces of jerky can be to eat. However, my mouth started to instantly water from the menagerie of marinating spices.

Although mild to none in chilli burn, this Chipotle Chilli Chicken Jerky is certainly packed full of flavour. Initially the smoked paprika is the dominating flavour followed closely behind by the Chipotle chilli and then other spices such as cumin, Cayenne and black pepper into the aftertaste. I can see how this Chipotle Chilli Chicken Jerky would appeal for an afternoon snack after a lunchtime workout. Happy healthy living, Folks! ;-)
