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.
Not buying again
I think I would put the bunting out if I had a chicken which was more than 1.6kg but that's never going to happen as I never have. This is not the first time this issue has been raised. Poor show Tesco!
Poor quality check
Few times I’ve bought this chicken and I’ve had to pluck the hairs of my self , infact it should be still clucking .
What kind of life did this Chicken have?
Quality as poor as the packaging. Roasted this Chicken, very little juice, very little taste. Hopefully the leftovers will be passable in a curry sauce?
Value for money
Cooked this chicken in a roasting bag and added slices of lemon along the breast. Found the meat did 4 meals, and was flavoursome. Will be buying again.
