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?
Easy chicken dinner
Excellent and so convenient to be able to cook from frozen.
Versatile and tasty
Very good and lean meal maker. Juicy chicken which bakes well in the oven. Nice with chips, rice, veg, noodles, stir fry,...I cook all the breasts in the oven, slice up in to strips, freeze in a tub and voila! They are ready for quick use when din dins comes a' knocking.
Can't believe how good these were
I can't believe how good these were! Not a fan of frozen chicken but these were delicious. I cooked them EXACTLY as per instructions, with a generous shaking of Schwartz BBQ seasoning, a spray of oil, and the meat was moist and succulent. More on order for the freezer. And it was so inexpensive - and low cal. Okay you do need an hour, but worth it. Yum.😋
Sugar and salt added...utter rubbish, why do you insist on getting rid of the plain, natural products and adding this rubbish
I bought these thinking I was gambling but I found
I bought these thinking I was gambling but I found them really fantastic, making cooking so much easier and they tasted like good old chicken ought to.
I've been buying these chicken fillets for quite a while now and they used to be very good value. Unfortunately, this year the quality seems to have deteriorated and the last few packs have contained awful, rubbery, hard meat. I dread to think what conditions the hens may be kept in. I definitely won't be buying these again.
