Remove from oven, place on a heatproof flat surface and open the bag carefully by slitting down the front of the bag with scissors.

Cooking Precautions

  • Make sure the bag does not touch the oven walls, shelves or heating element.
  • Take extra care when opening the bag as steam will escape and the bag will be full of hot cooking juices. The bag may open during cooking and result in cooking juices to seep from the foil tray into the roasting tin.
  • 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.
  • All appliances vary, these are guidelines only.

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.

I can't recommend this I'm afraid

2 stars

The chicken felt slightly over cooked and there wasn't that much meat on it. Not good value at all - it's much better to buy the roasting bags and a large chicken. However, if you can't be bothered and aren't watching the pennies, go for it.

Great chicken lousy bag

5 stars

These chickens are really nice and tasty, and they come in their own roasting bag. However that is a bit useless because to see the instructions one has to turn the bag over and all the juices run out of the foil tray. i had to cook mine the usual way in a pot! Please add a second bag or have the instructions on top!

Very good chicken but why can you not freeze them,

5 stars

Very good chicken but why can you not freeze them, who would buy and cook 3 chickens as per the latest offer

Cooking instructions not realistic un appetising.

2 stars

I buy whole chickens all the time we love them and thought I’d give this a go and Im sorry but it is so bad, i followed instructions and after the allotted time removed it from the bag to crisp up, it was raw. Ive just checked after the timers gone off on allotted crispy skin time and no still raw, so in again. I havent even tasted it yet because honestly its back in the oven and looking so unappetising i think i may just skip it. Buy a regular chicken for less and roast it as normal this is seriously not worth the hassle. (I would like to also point out my oven is one of those old everthing cooks quicker than you think ones and in an hour and half its still undercooked, an unbagged one takes 55 to an hour max.)
