Awful quality, more bones than chicken and the chicken that was there was rather tough and flavourless.

1 day shelf life

1 day shelf life - not listed as short date on receipt so was unaware until packed into fridge at home

Should say 5- days, NOT 5+

3 stars

Should say 5- days, not 5+. In the past had some very good chickens, I cook at lower temperature for longer and get a lovely moist joint. BUT last one had 2 days left, and delivered after 22:00 hrs so effectively just ONE day left in spite of advertised 5+ days.

Good value but rather dry and tough despite follow

3 stars

Good value but rather dry and tough despite following the cooking guidelines and wrapping in foil.

Poor quality, feathery chickens

1 stars

I have been ordering Tesco chickens for years, but just recently the quality has been terrible! The skin is still covered in feathers, the meat is very watery with lots of black bruising. And it really lacks flavour. I had hoped it was just a one off, but after a few weeks in a row, it's really put me off buying again.

I have been buying these chickens since lockdown.

Excellent value and very tasty however.... What penny pincher in Tesco decided to save a minute fraction of a penny by no longer binding the legs. In consequence when wrapping chicken in foil it is pierced by sticking out legs. Shame on you Tesco

Not upto Tesco usual high standards

5 stars

First it was aroast. Then chicken with salad and chips. The rest was added to a homemade lasagne. Excellent value and a very good moist chicken. I will definitely be buying again.

Short shelf life

Not happy, only had 2 days shelf life. Sorry but don’t advertise something you can’t provide.
