5 stars

I get one of these chickens most weeks. It is worth paying a little extra, its always moist and taste delicious which ever way I cook it. There is only 2 us in the household, so unless I am doing a roast (always enough left to make a chicken and ham pie too!) I cut the chicken into portions when uncooked and freeze for other meals during the week. Can thoroughly recommend this item.

Mouthwatering Delight

5 stars

This was an absolute delight to carve, and the flavour was absolutely wonderful! It melted in your mouth. Thoroughly rcommended!

Fat and bland

2 stars

Half of the chicken´s weight is fat... what is left is not worth the price or trouble. I have found the free-range (not corn fed) better, Why is it not available to buy online??

Tasty chicken

5 stars

This a great tasting chicken and the skin is juicy and is full of flavour, my family enjoyed it. Christmas dinner was the time we had it so I truly recommend this for a special occasion , if you thought the price wasn't worth buying, think twice because that that tasty texture is worth buying . Truly recommend to everyone!

Why it doesn’t look or taste like cornfed chicken?

High quality, flavoursome chicken

5 stars

Best chicken I’ve ever tasted outside Italy. Dense texture, fabulous crisp skin with flavourful stock for gravy

Very disappointing

2 stars

Usually very good but this time it was infiltrated with a large amount of yellow oily fat which I had to scrape off - won't buy again. Trying organic.

tasteless and tough

1 stars

I thought a free range corn fed chicken would have a yellow tinge to the skin, as previous corn fed chicken I have purchased, but this is different, I question it has been corn fed, it was tasteless and tough and salty and colourless.

Extremely disappointed with this chicken. Over pri

1 stars

Extremely disappointed with this chicken. Over priced for a tasteless, rubbery and fatty chicken. Will not be buying again.

Very salty

3 stars

Roasted the chicken. I found that the pan drippings that were to be used to make gravy were very salty. Could Tesco tell me if the chicken is injected with a saline solution? Would be good to know when cooking esp. if there is a person who is on salt restricted diet.
