Fabulous if you take the time to prep
I never buy any chicken and expect to be able to use it straight from the packet, even breasts need careful trimming these days. These thighs need a lot of trimming, no skin or bone but lot of sinew and bits of fat. It takes me a good 20 minutes to fully clean and prep the meat, leaving me with small pieces. I find from a 600g packet I am left with 540g of usable, pure meat. These bits are so versatile, used in all sorts of dishes: casseroles, tagines, pasta dishes etc. They are full of flavour and very tender. I have bought thigh fillets from elsewhere and have found Tesco's to be superior both in terms of the amount of waste and ease to clean them up, and in the final cooked outcome. As ever, you get out what you put in: take the time to work with them and they are fabulous, expect to be able to just chuck 'em in a dish and you'll probably be disappointed.
Rubbish use before date.
The one I have just received had only TWO DAYS left on the best before. Absolutely disgusting.
Chicken was rancid and slimy
Very disappointed with this product - went to use BEFORE sell-by date and chicken was rancid! Had to throw away - just disgusting and a waste of money.
Total waste of money
Please don’t waste your money on these chicken thighs, will never buy them again. Shocking quality, bought four packs for a family bbq and marinated overnight. When cooked unpleasant to eat, very sinewy, utter rubbish. Deserved to be thrown away. Come on Tesco, would have happily paid more for quality.
Succulent and versatile
I have been buying this product for some time and I find this part of the chicken very tasty and succulent so I was shocked to see the poor reviews. It is a very versatile part of the bird and can be cooked a number of ways with no waste.
The quality of these thighs was very poor - had cut a lot away & bin.
A waste of money! Even the cats weren’t that keen!
Best chicken cut for skewering!
A good choice as any for its price. Perfect meat of choice for satay/ shish tawook/ skewered for BBQ/ oven grill/ baking. Sinews aren't always removed, but a good cook always can make good food out of any meat.
Buy breasts NOT this rubbish.
I wont be buying this rubbish again, two packs now in the bin. Have been lucky with most meats in the past but these have to be the worst buy ever from Tesco. Would have been an impossible task removing the skin , sinew and fat from them.
These are honestly the worst chicken thigh ‘fillets’ I have ever encountered. They are full of skin, cartilage and bone. I had to throw 2 away they were so bad and the other 3 took me about 10 mins of cutting down to resemble anything like a fillet, terrible quality!
