5 stars

For a roast in the bag chicken I thought it was excellent. Didn’t bother to carve it as it was so tender, had the breast meat hot with veggie gravy and vegetables and the rest cold in a salad.

Cut the bag earlier and remove excess water

3 stars

I bought this at a large discount so I'm overall satisfied, however it was the first time, so I underestimated how much water/chicken juice you end up with. I see why people say it may look a bit disgusting. What I would do next time is after 40 mins go, remove the bag overall, pour out 90% of the juice and crank up the grill function on the oven so the bottom doesn't come back like it's chicken from soup vs. from your grill.

No crispy skin

2 stars

Followed the instructions to a T and chicken was so full of water that the skin just would not crisp up. Even left the chicken in oven for half an hour more and it still had soggy skin which was a real shame as was looking forwards to a nice crispy roast chicken. however meat inside was nice and moist

yes, it's a good buy

Shopping delivered Thursday 6th with this ordered. It was not on the delivery note as being close to use by date. On Sunday 9th when i came to use it, the use buy was the 7th and it was gone off!! Awful. Took straight back to Tesco and got another one. Very poor.

Love it!

5 stars

Great roast in the bag chicken. (But why are the cooking instructions on the bottom?, It just doesn’t make sense).....Really tasty and always moist, and as others have said, no mess! It’s a win win.

converted from being a bag chicken SNOB!!

5 stars

Well RELUCTANTLY I will say that i REALLY enjoyed this, as I am a cooking snob and would usually faff around with "doing" a roast - thought this would be TERRIBLE and PLASTICKY but actually it was tasty, EASY, succulent and no mess or hassle -all juices contained in foil - easy for gravy... YUM!!

Easy tasty no mess.

5 stars
