Never smell right
These larger chickens always smell a bit ‘off’. I even checked the date on the last one I bought because it smelled weird. Texture in cooking not great either. Poor quality
Haven’t eaten it yet but just wanted to say YES they do have the largest weight. I asked nicely and got one delivered today that is 2.34Kg, thank you to my very nice delivery guy.
Congratulations Tesco on improved packaging
I applaud the reduction of plastic around this product. It was a very flavoursome bird and although not everyone has had the same experience, I was genuinely pleased. Docked a star for the large lump of fat, it had not been well prepared.
The best Chickens at Tescos
Only buy Tescos whole chicken as they are of such a good quality and once cooked, so succulent. Never ever had an issue and purchase a minimum of two each week. My family love it for dinners,salads,fajhitas and curries.
Gone off before use by date
Had it delivered and went to cook it a couple of days later, still before the use by date and the chicken stank! Customer services were no help.
Need individual pricing to stop overcharging
There was no problem with the quality of the chicken, but size is a major issue and home delivery is being exploited. The size range is too great so there is both a big difference in value between 1.9 and 2.3 kg, and meal servings end up too small. It seems many chickens supplied by home delivery are nearer 1.9 kg which means Tesco are overcharging and making excess profits; chickens should be individually priced. Using a meat thermometer showed 60 minutes was perfect cooking time
Far too much water in roasting tray after cooking
I have bought quite a few of these chickens but the last two have been very disappointing and I won't be ordering them again. After roasting, the tin which accommodated the chicken with room to spare, contained about an inch deep of liquid, not chicken fat, but yellowish looking water. Never again.
Loaded with water
Very disappointed this week with the chicken, found a lot of liquid in the bottom of the pan, eventually drained of 3/4 pint. Injected water, this is not on the list of ingredients. ??
Never over 1.9kg
The chicken is fine as poor mass farmed chickens go. What my 'review' is about is I do purely online shopping and have ordered this chicken a goodly amount of times. I have never ever received one over 1.9kg. I always specify in the notes section that I would like the largest, at least 2kg, but alas.. I doubt they have any over 1.9kg Anyone ever got one?
Never had bigger than 1.97kg
It was fine but very one is only just over the minimum weight. Over four orders the biggest was 1.97kg
