Always tasty and moist

4 stars

Quite tasty and always moist due to the fact I think that it’s cooked in the bag. Keeps the oven clean too.

Best chicken

5 stars

Very good Quality! A lot of meat on the chicken not a lot of bone at all, so easy to cook taste lovely my family love it best chicken I’ve had honestly

Not what it looks like

2 stars

This cooked very easily and looked great but tasted so boring, when I carved the breasts the meat appeared stringy but didn't taste stringy. I didn't even bother with the rest of the bird, just dumped it. I've tried other cook in bag chickens which have been great but avoid this one.


5 stars

We had this yesterday and it was really delicious - the mea was beautifully moist, the skin was crispy and the whole family enjoyed it very much.

Too short in date

1 stars

Only 2 days in date therefore it was thrown away as NYE was already organised. This short date on all foods happens to often Will have to change store if it continues.


5 stars

What a wonderful chicken, tasty and tender. However the instruction for cooking should be on the from or on a separate piece of paper, not on the back of the cook-in bag!
