GARLIC coated roast chicken, it was horrible.
I bought this chicken crown intending to make a traditional Sunday roast with it, it was advertised as being covered with lemon, salt, and pepper. I thought a crown would be easier to carve than a whole chicken so would be ideal. But it was also covered in GARLIC and some sort of green herb. During cooking instead of that lovely roast aroma all we could smell was Garlic, it was horrible. So the dinner was abandoned, but the flavour of the chicken was overpowered by too much seasoning and was ruined. It all went in the bin. Luckily I was given a refund, but I will never buy this product again. What is it with ready meals that they all have to be smothered in additives such as chillies and herbs? . I am quite capable of seasoning my own food. Tesco you need to seriously review this!
Good quality, good taste, good tummy
Nicer than a whole chicken with less waste. Good taste and moist. Good buy
Lovely moist delicious chicken.
Not sure where all these bad reviews are coming from. We cook this exactly as per the instructions and it’s always wonderfully moist and tastes great. We do leave it to rest for a few minutes as you should all meats to allow the juices to redistribute. Can only think that people must be cutting it up immediately after removing from the oven....
Awful, no flavour and texture is like eating soft rubber. Not even sure I will give leftover to the dog, I think it will be binned. Would have given nil stars if I could.
best chicken ever!!!!
love this chicken. So easy to cook, no waste, really tasty and never dry. Perfect for 2 to 3 people.
Disappointed recently to find this product has replaced a previously gorgeous chicken. I definitely would not recommend this. It is tasteless and I had to cook it 30 mins longer than suggested. Won't be buying again! Sorry Tesco!
Dry and Tasteless
I buy this on a regular basis for Sunday lunch it's always been nice quality and very easy to cook. But the last one I had recently was very dry even though I always cook it 5 minutes less than they say on instructions. I'm afraid to say it was very dry and tasteless. So not sure if Teco have changed supplier, if they have it's a shame as I will think twice about buying it again. I will give it one more try and see what I think if it's the same I will write another review on this.
Avoid at all costs!
I have bought the bagged chickens before, which are great, but as I was only needing this for two people I thought this was a great alternative. After cutting it up, there was loads of liquid on the plates, which was really unpleasant. Then after eating some, it tasted a little rubbery and synthetic.
Having cooked as per instructions, the meat was so flabby and tasteless that I thought I might not have cooked all through, but tested to the bone and no sign of undercooking. Not at all good, went to waste I'm sorry to say.
I wonder if customers are confusing this chicken crown with the larger roast chicken in a bag at the same cost?? Also, if something arrives with a short date on it, always ring the number on the delivery note as they will usually refund it. Then you could freeze the items but record on it how short the use by date was so it's safe to eat after defrosting and cooking.
