Good for sticking in curries but can't say much else as I don't use them for anything else.
BEWARE OF PAST SELL BY DATE BEING DELIVERED
I ordered 2 pkgs of these and they were dated BEST BEFORE FEB 14 2020 AND TODAYS DATE IS MARCH 16, 2020. I tried to call Tesco several times today and no answer and the wait was 20 min twice and 15 min. twice, but each time I was cut off mid my wait. I could not believe that Tesco would be so brazen. Also, I know that it was inexpensive but written across the bag:: Water ADDed. And when I cooked, so much water was added that I poured off a measuring cup of water for 6 fillets. Tesco should be ashamed taking advantage of us in the middle of a crisis. 1. Dreadful quality 2. Water added product 3. SELLING A PRODUCT THAT IS OUT OF DATE!!! BEWARE THERE WERE OTHER ITEMS THAT CAME WITH SAME SORT OF PROBLEM.
Not good value for money
The bag says 1kg but on the ingredients on the back it states Chicken 82% On cooking it the chicken the total weight is only 500 grams. So although you think you are paying for 1kg in fact you end up getting half the weight stated on packet! Needless to say shan't be buying it again.
Enough good quality chicken to feed a family of s
Enough good quality chicken to feed a family of six. Can be used in many different recipes.
Value for money
So convenient and much tastier than fresh chicken. Really juicy and nice flavour without even adding seasoning. I started getting these as the fresh chicken from Tesco was quite dry and not very nice lately so wanted a change.. other than the fact they take 50 mins in the oven (if frozen), they're really good. They do shrink when cooked but that's expected, and would still be better value than fresh.
Great value, nice product
I buy these regularly and defrost before use. I find they are no better or worse than the more expensive Tesco ones which I was surprised by. Even fresh chicken can be injected with water to increase weight but these are still good value at defrosted weight.
It's great for the price of it.
I've been buying a couple packs of these a week for a few months now and I barely notice the difference to Tesco's fresh offerings, except the difference in price! Yes the added water means you technically only get about 820g but that's still a generous amount of breast for the price. Like another reviewer I prefer to defrost before cooking - it definitely results in a better texture and taste, especially in recipes where chicken is cooked quickly like stir fry. Water is generally added to frozen chicken to stop it drying out during cooking. I used to only buy the fresh breasts or mini fillets but I'll be sticking to these until we get bored of chicken.
Better than expected!
These are better than I expected. I defrost them the day before I intend to use them, and usually have them grilled. Yes, water has been added to them but I actually find this just keeps them nice and juicy!
Dont be fooled.
Its 1kg when frozen, when you defrost it then you will see it becomes more like 800Grams. Though its cheaper than the fresh you wont get the same in real weight.
Not British chicken.
I reluctantly buy this for my cat. The chicken comes from Germany. Why isn't Tesco supporting British farmers?
