Disgusting old and inedible chicken

1 stars

this chicken was a substitute for a roast in the bag one, I have never seen a more sad looking chicken in my life, all floppy and not good colour. Reluctantly I went ahead and cooked it for our Sunday lunch but when it was cooked I could not bring myself to eat it, the meat was not nice and the smell was horrible - this went straight into the bin I will never buy chicken from Tesco again. I feel as if I have bought a chicken that was old and that should not have been for human consumption I didnt even give it to my dogs! Very very disappointed. Suggest Tesco look for a new supplier of their chickens and check the environment they are living in.

XL size is large-ish & Use By date too soon

3 stars

Good taste thought the size of the XL been dropping in recent weeks to what I would call a Large-ish & the Use By date is nowhere near 4 days: I cook it as soon as it arrives. This is the downside of online shopping: in-store I would choose a bigger one & a better Use By date, in which case I might have given this 5 stars.

Chicken was out of date in 1 day

1 stars

The web site shows that the product (chicken) will be OK for 4 days plus. I've gone to put it in the oven today, 3 days plus to find that it went out of date on the 4th which was only one day after the order was delivered. I will be very reluctant to buy a chicken from Tesco again online.
