Sent the smallest size they could

3 stars

Chicken itself was fine but they did sent the lowest size in the range which was annoying as I picked large because i wanted a big chicken!

Large chickens now filled with water!!!

2 stars

I usually order a chicken every Tuesday and cook it on the night. The fat/moisture I always pour into a mug, leave to set then chuck into the bin. It always fills the mug to about 1/3rd. Tonight's chicken filled the whole mug with moisture after I took it from the oven. You are obviously starting that disgusting habit of injecting the bird with water to make it weigh heavier. After cooking it shrinks away to nothing. Wont be buying your chickens any more. The roasting pan was drowning in it when I took it from the oven!!!

Dodgy undeclared additives that make gunge.

1 stars

Reading the reviews I have decided not to purchase again. If tesco were honest and admitted what the suspicious additives are then that would be a start. Shoving in permitted water [up 5%] and using some undeclared concoction to keep it in results in gunge appearing in their other chicken products. To fiddle with food in this way should be a criminal offense.

Shrinking Chicken

3 stars

Have ordered this twice now since the "New Lower Price" (20p cheaper ) and have found the chicken getting smaller and smaller . Whereas before weight was usually 1.7kg-1.8kg now has been 1.5kg-1.6kg .Would rather pay extra 20p to get a proper large chicken or pay by weight The chicken itself is tasty but suspect a bit of shrinkflation going on .

They appear to be getting smaller and fatty

Awful and tasteless chicken!

1 stars

Always buy the free range chickens previously. As none available, so decided to try out this 'factory farmed' chicken first time ever. Roasted to perfection with golden brown skin. Resting the roasted chicken from the roasting tin to a serving bowl and there was quite an amount of water at the bottom (not fat!) after a few minutes. The golden brown skin was very chewy and tasteless. The meat was very soft and also tasteless, and flaked apart like fish meat when cutting and eating. The chicken was very fresh before roasting. Will never buy this type of chicken again. In fact, I won't have it even if it is free!

Very Tasteless

2 stars

This chicken was full of water and very tasteless. It was like eating nothing :(

Always tender and tasty.

5 stars

We have these regularly. They are always delicious roasted or jointed in casseroles. Really good value.

weird

3 stars

Been buying one of these a week for my partner and the cat to share. I don't know what was wrong with last weeks but the meat was slimey, even though no oil or anything was added during cooking. Even the cat won't touch it. Gotta wonder what they are pumping into our food...

always think it is such good value for your money
