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.
  • 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.
  • All appliances vary, these are guidelines only.

Very Tasty

5 stars

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

Huge disappintment!

2 stars

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

4 stars

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

5 stars

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,

Absolutely awful

2 stars

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.


1 stars

Poor quality chicken that's pumped full of water and has the texture of a lump of snot. Revolting!


5 stars


Fail safe, tasty chicken

5 stars

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

2 stars

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.


1 stars

Obviously pumped full of salt water, tastes disgusting and the meat had a very floppy mushy texture. Revolting!
