Too many feathers
Spent about 40 min plucking feathers from the chicken.
Excellent roast chicken
This chicken was the nicest I’ve had in a long time. It was very tender and tasty. I highly recommend it.
Not as fresh as I would have picked myself!
Had to use it the day I received it as it was already on its use by date. It was supposed to have six days left. This is not what I expect from Tesco. The instore shoppers are NOT being as diligent as they should be when selecting fresh food.
Just right size for us n nice price
Great for the price. Spatchcock it
I spatchcock this little chicken. Shove it in the oven at 180 degrees along with some potatoes and sweet potatoes. If room also bell pepper and sometimes borlotti beans and enthusiastically season everything with all sorts of whatever I feel like having. Cut a lemon into quarters and pop it in too. Yes there is some prep required ie removing residue innards but no big deal
Poor little Chicken - if it had lived just 1 more day it would have doubled its weight for sure.
Fantastic Value For Quality Chickens.
Whenever I use Tesco online I always purchase at least 2 of these chickens. I have never had any sort of problem with the chicken I received, the quality and size of the chicken has been perfect. I am impressed with the quality and price of these chickens, well done Tesco!
Really weird. I’ve been buying these chickens two at a time for a few weeks (they’re quite small), and cooking them together in the one roasting pan. I’ve not had a problem with them until now, although they are a bit dry and tough. This week when it came time to take them out of the oven they were floating in (honestly) OVER HALF AN INCH OF CHICKEN FAT! As a test (water or fat, who knows?) I used half of the liquid to baste my roasters to see if the liquid would reduce in the heat. It didn’t although the heat was up to 220 degrees C for 30 minutes. The chickens themselves were particularly dry and tough, and I’d kept one of them to make a curry, but will instead throw it out after using the other for roast dinners. I’m starting to lose trust in Tesco for a lot of their ‘basic’ products, it’s a real lottery now.
Expired 01/07/2020, the day after receiving at 8pm
So much for your 3+ days promise and advertising. Received after 8pm on 30/06/2020 and put straight in fridge for use within the 3 days and not noticing it was labelled to expire the following day. Went to use on 03/07/2020 but bag was blown in fridge by then and on piercing stank out the kitchen. Why would you do this to someone totally reliant on home deliveries? NOT FUNNY.
Good value. Never had any problem with this. Does two good meals plus soup for two of us.
