Tasty, easy to roast in the bag, and well priced. We have it roasted for 2 -3 servings, then the leftover roast is shredded and added to pasta sauces etc to give another 2 servings
Not being a great chicken lover I tried the previous roast in the bag chicken with pork sage and onion stuffing and loved it - really tasty and succulent. I was converted. For reasons known only to themselves Tesco stopped doing these and so I tried this one - HUGELY disappointed! Tasteless and dry. Needless to say I'm off chicken again 😒 unless of course Tesco see sense and re-stock the pork/sage/onion variety.
The family loved it
I have sneered at ready to cook chickens before but tried it in a panic one Sunday when it was on offer and surprised myself. The only effort involved was shoving the entire package in the oven and remembering to open it up just before end of cooking time to brown off, but it was voted a success by OH and children so will happily buy it again..
Really nice chicken
Despite other reviews I purchased this chicken and cooked as directed but for an extra hour. IT was browned, succulent and I would recommend it. I'm not a great chicken lover but this was excellent,
I’ve had these cook in the bag chickens before and they have been really good but this one was awful. The instructions say to slit the bag towards the end of cooking and baste in the juices. There were no juices, it was dry as a bone. It felt like plastic when cutting it and seemed as if it was past it’s use by date even though it wasn’t. I’ve noticed a decline in quality in a few items recently.
Poor quality chicken that's pumped full of water and has the texture of a lump of snot. Revolting!
GOOD QUALITY VERY MOIST GREAT FOR SUNDAY LUNCH AND
GOOD QUALITY VERY MOIST GREAT FOR SUNDAY LUNCH AND LATER FOR SANDWICHES WOULD BUY AGAIN
Fail safe, tasty chicken
Very tasty chicken, easy to cook and always moist. Great as either a roast or with new potatoes and salad. Lovely and tasty leftovers for sandwiches. Keep an eye on date as occasionally the + 4 days as advertised is very generous! Have this most weeks.
Stuffed with one inch bits of scaley leg pieces
We had this chicken this evening. The abdominal cavity was stuffed with one inch bits of chopped off chicken legs! I assume this was to make up the weight. Horrible. I will not be buying again.
Obviously pumped full of salt water, tastes disgusting and the meat had a very floppy mushy texture. Revolting!
