Had gone off before use by date
Went to cook it before the use by date and the smell was awful. Binned immediately.
Minimal, thick skinned,fatty meat
Mostly bone and what meat we did get off it was fatty and horrible. The skin was also extremely thick and flabby and would not crisp up leaving it inedible. Cheap Willow farm chicken better than this.
Tesco British Large Whole Chicken 1.5Kg - 1.9Kg
nothing but a carcuss of bones with very little meat to eat very poor product.
You say this product is good for 5 days. The one
You say this product is good for 5 days. The one I picked up on July 29, 2021 only lasted until July 30, 2021. Just one (1) day. I did not notice this until I returned home. In future I will check this thoroughly at the pick up point and will return it if it does not last for the full 5 days.
Tesco What Happened?
Tesco what happened? Pls bring back your previous quality chicken products and packaging - they were fantastic. Can only agree with comments below re changes ... didn't look appetising, had to complete the plucking, flopping around inside a bag and couldn't find the breast meat. Having said that, the meat we did find in other places was tasty, just a pity all appetite had gone by then.
I've been buying this for months but Tesco have recently changed the packaging from the style pictured to a bag. I don't think the bag keeps the chicken as fresh, last week i had to throw the chicken away as it had gone off (before the expire date). The chickens also seem smaller than they were previously. I'd prefer not to buy a bagged chicken so if this is how they will continue to be delivered can Tesco please change the image so myself and other customers can avoid please.
I have been buying these chickens for a while now and they have been lovely until now. I bought one on Monday and noticed that the package had changed but that in itself is not unusual. When I went to carve it there were just two larger than normal legs but no breast at all! Aside from this, the meat on the legs was horrible, slimy and fatty. This was supposed to serve 6 but even if the meat had been nice (which it wasn't) there was barely enough for 2, never mind 6! Anyway it all went in the bin. I have taken photos which I will be taking to Tescos tomorrow and demanding a refund. I would have given no stars in the rating if this was an option.
CANNOT TRUST THAT YOU GET "LARGE"
This week our LARGE chicken looked so small - we weighed it - It was only 1.3 (something)kg. It was not enough for the number of people eating so was NOT very pleased!!
never a large chicken
always buy a large but they never are more like a medium not happy
I have bought this chicken before and it was lovely but i assume it is a change in packaging but it doesn't look like the picture and is flat (legs by the side of the body) Doesn't look very appetising.
