Just cooked a corn fed chicken awful full of water
Just cooked a corn fed chicken awful full of water seems it was a processed chicken took ages to cook no taste and carving seemed like rubber. Definitely not fresh. Expensive for what it’s worth. Never again
I'm a bit late with my review as I purchased this Chicken for our Christmas dinner, instead of a Turkey. It is one of the best Chickens I have bought. Very tasty and moist. I am definitely buying again.
First rip off
This is the 3rd corn fed chickens we have had over the last 5 months, we have cooked it at different times at the temperatures advised on the packet but when we have cut it a lot of water has come out of it, meaning that it's been water injected and been dyed to make it yellow. Tesco should be ashamed of it self. And the Finest Brand should be ashamed you would be better with the budget brand of chicken.
Tried, tested, failed.
So disappointing. I tried it as free range and corn fed sounded good. Expensive, an unpleasant texture and tasteless. Perhaps time for me to become a vegetarian.
Got a huge chicken delivered. We roasted it for 1.5 hours and it was the worst dinner ever. The chicken was bland. The texture was muscly. Obviously it was an adult bird. I don't understand what is happening to Tesco. We used to receive quality products but now it seems they have substituted quality for greed - buy dirt cheap, sell high, make huge profit today who cares about tomorrow. They haven't even trimmed the bird right as it had more parts of his legs and wings on. Anything to boost the weight I guess.
Really succulent tasty Chicken. I roasted it but a
Really succulent tasty Chicken. I roasted it but as theres only two of us, I had lots left over. The next day I shredded it for hot wraps with peppers and onions. Still had enough for more wraps or sandwiches for the following two days. I will definitely buy this again and use in similar way, or make a pie with the leftovers.Although this isn't cheap, because its plump you get so much more meat from it. I think its more economical.
Whilst we ate our roast chicken and it tasted ok, when I carved the chicken was a little disturbed to find that many of the bones were broken, in particular the breast bone, so I wasn’t sure how the bird had been cared for during its life. Because of this I won’t be buying this product again. I tried one from a butcher’s shop, a week later and found that to be much better and more succulent.
Good value for money
Had several of these, last few had more liquid in cooking pan but generally very tasty and nearly all meat edible. Not so sure yellow colour is because it is cornfed, seems to be something injected in as it is uneven. On the whole very good value for money and worth the extra. Have no waste.
Succulent, tasty chicken
Excellent tasty chicken, worth thr extra money.
so moist and tender
Yes it's yellow. But it is corn fed. I cooked it breast down for the first hour. The meat was so moist and fell off the bone. And delivered well in advance of it's 'use by' date.
