Tasteless replacement

1 stars

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

3 stars

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!

1 stars

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.

Not good

2 stars

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.

Just thinking...!

3 stars

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.

Serves 4 people?

I used to buy this all the time so ordered, I had to sit down when I saw the size of it. Same price, seems like half the size. Will not be ordering again.

Handy and quick

4 stars

It says salt and pepper but it is actually lemon salt and pepper. Nice but won't work so well with certain dishes.

Too much lemon

3 stars

The taste of lemon was overwhelming. I almost couldn't taste the chicken because of it. Would have been 5 out of 5 if you hadn't added lemon :/

great tasting chicken tender not to spicy no waste

5 stars

Tasteless and rubbery

1 stars

I bought this for Easter Sunday, Unfortunately it turned out to be a very poor decision. It was watery, rubbery and without any flavour at all. I know that Tesco will refund me the cost but It was so bad that I felt compelled to review this product.
