Cooking Precautions

  • This product is fully prepared and can be cooked in its packaging.
  • For best results, we recommend cooking in the bag.
  • Do not pierce or open before cooking.
  • Check food is cooked thoroughly and juices run clear when pierced with a thin skewer before serving.

Good quality and really easy to cook.

Good quality and really easy to cook.

Moist, succulent, flavourful

5 stars

I am astounded by the negative reviews. We have now had four of these, and each time they are moist, succulent, flavourful and perfectly cooked (we followed the directions exactly). They are so easy to prepare, and cleanup after was almost non-existent. We would never buy a regular chicken again. These are outstanding.

Perfectly fine

4 stars

I brought this for Christmas Day. I was quite worried after all the reviews, but thought I would give it a try. I cooked it roughly to what it said, added a few extra minutes and put foil on the chicken towards the end so that it didn’t burn. The chicken tasted absolutely fine! Cooked good too. The negatives are the the cooking instructions should not be at the bottom of the bag, after it went into the oven, I needed to read the instructions again regards timings and that was difficult. It was also difficult to baste the chicken, especially when a lot of the liquid was outside the foil tray, a turkey baster is needed. There was 3 of us that had this chicken, you could perhaps share it between 4 at a push but definitely no more. For the price, I thought it did the job!

Followed cooking instructions and even added 10 mi

2 stars

Followed cooking instructions and even added 10 minutes. Went to carve and still pink inside not impressed at all. The rest of the dinner was ready and the chicken was not.

Wont be buying again!

1 stars

Thought I would give this ago as it was on offer, next time I'll buy a normal one! Followed the instructions and it was still pink after the alloted time so it went back in the oven.. twice! Still had a slight pink tinge so fingers crossed no-one is ill!! Wouldnt buy again.

Great Value For Money.

4 stars

I assume that most customers have been following the instructions and thus the chicken has not been fully cooked... I "Step 1" cooked it at 180 (fan - normal oven 200) for an hour, then I "Step 2" removed the bag, spooned the gravy from the tray over the chicken, put it back in the oven as it is at 160 (fan - normal oven 180) for half an hour, then repeated the "Step 2". So the chicken spent two hours in the oven altogether, and I let it rest in there for another 10 minutes, before taking it out and carving... Skin was beautifully brown, though not very crispy, but it all tasted fine... Great value for money, and it is a good chicken as long as one cooks it properly.


5 stars

Had one before and it was lovely and moist and tasty.Would recommend.

Tough as Old Boots

1 stars

What can I say. After the allotted cooking time it was still very pale. So I left it in the oven a while longer. The skin still wasn’t crispy as you would expect. It wasn’t very tasty either and tough. I gave some to the cats, but I don’t think they were very keen on it either, as they scooted off instead of asking for more. I’ll stick to what I normally do and buy a chicken and flavour it myself and bung it one of my own roasting bags. You were lucky to get even 1 star.


1 stars

Not worth the money. I have no idea what Tesco's have done to this poor chicken but it smelt awful and tasted awful. The dog had it in the end. Learnt a lesson not to be lazy, and just buy a normal chicken and season myself.
