McCain's Chicken Parmigiana

We've all seen the TV ad for McCain's latest creation. The McCain's website describes the frozen dish as a "Succulent crumbed chicken breast topped with tomato salsa and cheddar cheese, with potato cubes, peas and carrots." But just how "succulent" is it? Have you tried it? Tell us your thoughts. Has McCain done it again?

How would you rate it out of 5?

Wouldn't dare try it 250
  • Wouldn't dare try it: if i wanted a parma id go to the pub
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Please - A Parma that comes frozen in a box can't be worth eating!
  • 1 out of 5: easy and quick, but nowhere near the standard of a good pub parma
  • 0 out of 5: Bloody Awful
  • 3 out of 5: I have tried it. It is not even close to a Pub Parmigiana, the chicken fillet is a little dry for example and a chicken parmigiana is suppose to over lap your plate by at least a third. The flavour is not too bad though, as far as frozen meals go you could definitely do worse. I was pleasantly surprised by the potato cubes, they were really nice. I had expected them to be like reheated chips. Vegetables are also very much an afterthought in a proper Parmigiana, if you even bother with them at all so to take up valuable parma space with vegetables isn't in keeping with sacred parma tradition either. I gave a 3 instead of a 2 because the flavour is really quite good, and I believe their heart was in the right place.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: I have been asked by so many people if i'm going to review the mccain's parma and i just cant bring myself to do it, just seems so wrong.. also the ad is attrocious, a real man would be at the pub having a parma and beer with mates not in his shed eating a microwave meal
  • Wouldn't dare try it: (shudder)
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Fuck that
  • 1 out of 5: My mrs cooked this up for me and added her own ham and sauce which made it edible but still you'd have to be either really bloody hungry or unable to leave the couch to pick this over a parma and pint at any local.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: The image on the box in the freezer is enough to make one sick.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: I reckon the box it comes in probably has more flavor
  • Wouldn't dare try it: No frozen food could compare to the real thing
  • 1 out of 5: Pretty terrible really, but we are talking $5 & if hunger is present, then you may just get this meal down. Tip: leave the meat until last, as the chicken will then feel like a reward after getting through those veggies.
  • 0 out of 5: 3 words, CRAP dont bother
  • Wouldn't dare try it: My husband told me I'm divorced if I ever serve him one of these.... looks like a chicken nugget with a blob of White Crow<br />
  • 2 out of 5: pretty bloody ordinary
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Are you kidding - the parma is a pub feed and should't be anywhere near the microwave
  • Wouldn't dare try it: The like shit on a plate!
  • Wouldn't dare try it: A parma that comes frozen and is reheated in a microwave oven, CRIMINAL! Real breast of chicken, cooked fresh with a slice of smokey ham smothered with a tasty tomato sauce below melted mozzarella. Served with hot chips and a bit of green stuff on the side. You can't get that from a microwave!
  • Wouldn't dare try it: rotten
  • 5 out of 5: Bloody outstanding tucka mates!
  • Wouldn't dare try it: its like eatting a cardboard box
  • 1 out of 5: Only caused I was pissed and would of eaten anything at 4 in the morning......
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Boycott frozen parmas! You're wrong McCain, you can only get a great tasting parma at the pub.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: its a crime...simply would not eat it
  • Wouldn't dare try it: crap why why why !!!!!!!
  • Wouldn't dare try it: eiw
  • 0 out of 5: To call that poorly packaged synthetic tasting meal a parmigiana would be blasphemy. What you see and hear in the ad is just marketing at it's best.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: What a waste of time
  • 0 out of 5: up the shit
  • Wouldn't dare try it: The picture looks like schitzel with popped Zit ozzing puss and blood.
  • 3 out of 5: Having never tasted it myself, it doesn't look too bad, however the topping does look a little disappointing on first impression
  • 5 out of 5: Surprisingly good, actually.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Who would be brave enough to try it, certainly not an inviting looking parma. And advetising normally dresses the product up. I will pass thanks.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: it's a bloody insult to the parma - it doesn't even look tasty on the ad!
  • Wouldn't dare try it: You what?
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Parma's are supposed to served fresh! Shame on McCain for even trying to cash in on the parma name!
  • Wouldn't dare try it: it even looks poor in the ad
  • 0 out of 5: Its terrible
  • 1 out of 5: May eat as an emergency meal only. Doesnt get near the pub parma, more like, it slips, trips and falls over its own untied laces. I would reach into the freezer and grab the homemade pasta sauce instead of the frozen parma.
  • 5 out of 5: Only h town for me
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Ready meals are full of crap. And I have to say happy birthday
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Would rather eat the cardboard it came in, the only time consideration for somehing like this would be when your pissed in the wee hours of the morning and dont care about taste.
  • 3 out of 5: For a microwave TV dinner it does it's job, hardly a world beater though
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Go to Panton Hill Pub instead.
  • 1 out of 5: it was dry and soggy at the same time...horrible!!!
  • Wouldn't dare try it: When you live in Melbourne and nearly every second place has a parma on the menu. why would you substitute with sub quality garbage
  • 0 out of 5: All I can say is pass me a bucket
  • 2 out of 5: nothing special
  • 1 out of 5: not a real parma looks and tastes like its just come out of the oven from the kitchen at nasa
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Frozen chicken!! That's not in the spirit of good food...<br />
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Looks Shithouse!
  • 0 out of 5: Revolting
  • Wouldn't dare try it: It's probably better than the parma at the Rye hotel, I mean at twenty two dollars I thought I was a chance of a decent parma, but I should have just rumaged around in the bin out the back for some cardboard it would have had more flavour<br />
  • 2 out of 5: Cheap imotation, wouldn't really expect more though
  • Wouldn't dare try it: WTF?
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Wouldn't risk this one.
  • 2 out of 5: Definitely not a pub meal but if you're hankering for some chook tomys and cheese it's actually not too bad for a frozen dinner. I'm rating down cause the ad is misleading in comparing itself to the pub classic.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: I'd rather eat crumbed dog poo with cat vomit topping.
  • 5 out of 5: greeeeeeeeaaaaaaaat
  • Wouldn't dare try it: they've done it again...crap
  • Wouldn't dare try it: id rather shove it up my ass
  • 1 out of 5: The small thing in life are often the best, so why was time on poor quality food, only dine on the best, and for that occasion when you desire a Parma, find the best place both with atmosphere and quality Parma and enjoy it for its glory and with pint of fine ale, and savour the moment .Were I donât see the enjoyment coming from box.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: that sounds fucked up
  • 5 out of 5: At Tallangatta hotel made with fresh chicken breast and their own Napoli . Fresh and succulent<br />
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Ya mum called... she said 'go piss yer-self'
  • 2 out of 5: Just ok
  • 1 out of 5: Very average<br />
  • 3 out of 5: For a frozen meal that's been reheated it actually tasted ok. I put mine in the oven &amp; peeled the plastic back for the last 10minutes to let the cheese &amp; outer crumb to crisp a bit. I bought it for $5 - so good value too
  • 2 out of 5: Very dependant on cooking / reheatng process and oven temperatures.Difficult to consistantly get it right.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Wrong - just wrong :(
  • 4 out of 5: Star hotel bright. Texas. T Parma awesome
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Great ad - shit Parma<br />
  • 2 out of 5: I've tried it. It's okay for a frozen meal, and for the price you get what you pay for. But if you want a proper parma, either make it yourself or go to the pub.
  • Wouldn't dare try it: i think the guys at Barry Pde guitar shop in Brisbane make a better chiken.
  • 4 out of 5: Cook it in the oven instead... Not bad. Obviously not a fresh plate sized piece of awesome, but not bad nonetheless
  • 5 out of 5: The best Parma around. Service, atmosphere and food are all first rate.
  • 3 out of 5: It's not up there with a well cooked parma but I've certainly had worse!
  • 1 out of 5: what do you expect for 7 bucks
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Yuck - frozen crap!
  • 2 out of 5: Its not succulent, its more like eating plastic and the red coloring turns your poo red (I kid you not). The only reason I used to eat this was because it was quick (in the microwave for 5 minutes) but I always had to spread a lot of cheddar cheese to make it edible.
  • 0 out of 5: Crap
  • 3 out of 5: On par with plane food. Edible but not overly enjoyable. Surprisingly, looked much like the pack shot, just sans cheese!
  • 0 out of 5: Dry
  • 5 out of 5: This McCains frozen parmigiana is soo juicy and mouth watering. It is massive like the size of a 50 cent coin. When you have one bite and finnish eating it you want more. The cheese and tomato based sauce is amazing better than any other parma you get in a pub!! The peas potato and carrots taste like they were picked and frozen 5 years ago bit have a magnificent taste like the taste of peas potato and carrot. I will stock my freezer full of this for when the apocalypse happens. Wow its totes amazeballs!!

  • Wouldn't dare try it: What a joke
  • 3 out of 5: I am bit chicken Parma fan, and while McCain's Frozen chicken Parma has its draw backs (the chicken is a processed nugget as opposed to being a real fillet), the flavour is good. The potatoes are suprising as I didn't expect them to reheat well, but they are actually delicious, and there is a good serve of vegies. So while as far as chicken parmas go it in no way compares to a real one, as far as frozen meals go this is a good offering, particularly if you like Chicken Parmas.
  • 5 out of 5: Much wow very doge! 21/10 - ign &quot;like skyrim with guns&quot;
  • Wouldn't dare try it: no way
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Frozen meat? No thanks. I've worked in 3 joints that do parmigiana and I think even the worse would trump this factory shat
  • Wouldn't dare try it: Makes me think you need to be driving to appreciate it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pE1gTYd9EDc
