When I saw that one of the products I had received to review was the PC Pulled Pork Cooking Sauce I decided to make mini pulled chicken sliders, since Reg does not eat pork.
My favourite way to make pulled chicken is to slow poach it in the oven. I cover the chicken with chicken broth, add some parsley, bay leaves and black peppercorns. I cover completely with parchment paper to help keep the chicken moist and then wrap with aluminum foil. I put the chicken in the oven at 250F for around two hours.
Then I use two forks to shred the chicken. I have tried making this in the crockpot but found the chicken just disintegrates when I try and shred it.
Unfortunately, this sauce is so powerful and flavourful that the chicken completely disappeared. You definitely need a stronger protein to compete with this sauce. I bet it would be phenomenal with beef. Very tangy, savoury and not too sweet, this sauce tastes like a professional barbecue sauce that will zing your tastebuds. I give it four out of five wooden spoons, totally worth $2.49 for a quick dinner with slow-cooked flavour.
The PC Creamy Garlic Dipping Sauce confused me at first. Was this a veggie dip? Then I saw in the flyer that it was on the page with all the new pizzas. We do not usually dip pizza but I gave it a shot.
I bought another Mushroom Medley Ultra-Thin Crust Flammekueche and on a night I had no energy to cook, I tried it with the dipping sauce. Salty!!! Wow, I found it really salty. I actually could not taste the garlic flavour because of the salt which is listed as the fourth ingredient. There is more salt in this dip than garlic!
I wanted Reg to try it too so I made a crispy baked potato, added some cheese and had it with the dip. Reg thought it was OK but I do not think he found it very memorable. Once again I found it too salty and wished there was more of a garlicky punch. To be honest, I think had I topped the potato off with sour cream I would have enjoyed it just as much, if not more.
If you absolutely must have a dipping sauce for your pizza and have a high tolerance for salt, then I would give this a three out of five. For me though? At $2.49 I will not be buying this one but I may try the Spicy Chipotle version.
That is it for this round of President’s Choice produce reviews. There were some baby-related products that I really can not test so I will let those go.
I hope you found my reviews helpful!
