Filling tasty, pastry disgusting.
The filling was actually quite nice, very little chicken but for 50p each what do you expect. The pastry however was vile. It was almost sweet, just very odd tasting.Will not buy again and the other in the packet will go in the bin.
Not worth buying
Pastry looks nothing like the packaging when cooked. When opening up pasty there was hardly any filling and maybe two or three pieces of tiny meat. Even for £1 I wouldnt bother buying again.
Hardly chicken bakes
There were only about 5 tiny pieces of chicken in each bake. Got 2 of these as a substitute on an order for a chicken pie. Awful product. Would like my money back and this product to be reformulated

Pastry was lovely but not as described i.e not flaky pastry. There was far too little filling, albeit the little that was there was tasty. Current price probably reflected poor filling but should price increase, then expectation for increased filling, should also increase.
Bought these for my husband, but they were so awfu
Bought these for my husband, but they were so awful, we had to bin them and we very rarely bin food, as we hate waste, but these were inedible. Even following directions, the pastry would not cook, it came out with raw uncooked pastry and tasted of it too. To top it off, they are empty, very little filling, I've honestly never seen anything with such little filling! It was all pasty. Uncooked, raw pastry. Poor pastry at that. Waste of money. Waste of food.
Good value for money
As with all Tesco oven bake products I'd recommend giving the cooking time longer. Pleasant & light crisp puff pastry. Nice, tasty filling. OK they'd benefit from a little more chicken but they compare very favourably with, for example, Greggs products on taste & price. Definitely going into my favourites!
Wheres the filling? Shrinkflation strikes again?
Bought these with the 'new' recipe aka include less filling. More pastry than anything; while more expensive, and will take longer to make, you'll probably be better off making your own versions with puff pastry and chicken in white sauce. These are very dry without much sauce, and there's not a lot of chicken either. Still flavourful, so at least the salt content hasn't yet been sacrificed.
Pastry lovely, decent size,no sauce, my one had two 5 pence piece sized pieces of chicken and my partners had one 5 pence piece sized piece of chicken. Basically a puff pastry pocket.
Have to get some more.
Tasty chicken slices, I'll have some more in the future.
Lovely flaky pastry and tasty filling
These chicken bakes are lovely the pastry was lovely and flaky this was the first time I purchased these bakes but I will certainly buy them in future, its a shame they don't do other varieties.
