I would not recommend this product It contained one large free range breast with slightly yellow skin and one very small one with white skin which did not look free range at all

was looking forward to these, lovely colour, however, when I opened them up I had one full chicken breast and one cut in half. Not much use for the stuffed chicken recipe I had planned. It was sneakily hidden by the label. Won't buy again.
Soo many issues...!
1. This is supposed to be a premium product and is priced accodingly, however the quality is very variable and although I always marinade the fillets they are still frequently tough and stringy. 2. Haven't been able to get any free range products online since forever. Limited availability of free range eggs and no free range chicken. Tescos is the biggest purchaser of everything in the country, surely you could sort out a regular supply of quality free range chicken? 3. Why are these white? Cornfed chicken is yellow, like the fod it is fed on. If I waned fish fed chicken I would buy it - and pay a lot less for it. 4. Why aren't there twi equal size breasts in this pack? It's hopless having one good sized breast and one mangled and undersized breast - how am I supposed to make a meal from that unless I chop it up? Come on Tesco, get your act together!
Report issues and nothing done about them
It has been impossible to buy these for several weeks due to a fault with the website. I have reported it twice but still goes into basket and straight back out. I know they are in stock as they arrived last week as a substitute for skin on free range chicken breasts. Very frustrating and annoying

I was prepared to pay a substantial premium for a high quality product and this was not value for money.
CORNFED IS YELLOW
I conquer with other customers about the size of the portions, but more importantly this chicken should be yellow not white. It is a colour that is indicative of Cornfed Birds, they not only take the beautiful colour of the Corn, but the flavour has more depth and the Juice they produce is so beautiful you can make stock with it.. This Chicken has been Consistently white for weeks now. Please Tesco can you sort this supply issue, I want to buy Cornfed Chicken again. Simple solution to the not equal parts is to cut the portion, but yes if your going to stuff the breast it’s not an option. If you purchase in store you have the option if there are other weights available..
I totally agree with the comments about 1 large and 1 small piece. This is really irritating as you can't always tell until you have opened the packet that this is the case.
Premium price for inferior product!
The reason I gave it two stars is as follows. Firstly, very unequal portions. You might assume that a product packaged as two chicken breasts would contain breasts of fairly similar size. Not so! One breast was twice as big as the other giving very unequal portions. Secondly, There were pieces of bone still attached that had to be removed before cooking. This is supposed to be a premium quality product & it comes with a premium price tag. Not good enough!
Very unequal pieces
Hoped to use for a stuffed breast recipe, but one piece was huge, the other a tiny slither. I wish Tesco would do more free-range chicken options.
Shallow fried in the usual way as with other chicken for a curry but it was tough and chewy. More expensive than normal chicken as corn-fed so expected it to be good but was hugely disappointed.
