The Best tasting chicken we have ever had, added s
The Best tasting chicken we have ever had, added salt flakes, black pepper and olive oil, popped into the oven and turned over once, it had crispy skin and the flavour of the chicken was lovely. Loads of meat on the chicken, which made a good few meals, I am purchasing another today, very economical. Very pleased.
5+ Days Ignored
Very disappointed. Asked for 'the longest sell by date please' and found on arrival that our chicken had to be eaten within the next 26 hours! What happened to the expected 5+ days?? Not good enough Tesco.
Hopefully better animal welfare? Tasty chicken.
I'm not sure what 'room to roam' really means, but hope it means they aren't crammed in like sardines. But it does have an enhanced welfare standard sticker on the packaging as well as an RSPCA endorsement. I don't know that chickens play, but they do need room to wander, perch and forage and I hope this label enables more normal behaviour. 4 stars instead of five as I'm unsure of the level of animal welfare actually being practised.
Shorter use by date than expected.
It's in the oven cooking now! Had to get a move on. It was delivered today on the 12th and the use by date is the 15th. What happened to the promise of 5+ days? Hence minus 2 stars irrespective of what it tastes like.
Great tasting high welfare chicken
Exceptional quality and great taste with the bonus of knowing welfare is fantastic due to the RSPCA Assured labelling. Well done Tesco for providing a real premium product. My family loved it!
5+ days?Delivered on the 2nd use by the 3rd
This must be quite stale .Not good enough
1 day shelf life! Seriously?!
I asked fo longest best before date please but my shopping arrived late Friday evening and the use by date was that Sunday!!! Plus I paid quite a high delivery charge!
Agree with previous reviewer about the misleading pricing and the other reviewer about the short use by dates with home delivery, so disappointing that Tesco haven’t acted on these comments. That said, the chicken is delicious and superior to caged birds in taste and welfare. Will definitely be purchasing again.
Use by date was next day after delivery
Lovely chicken only last delivery we had to eat next day due to use by date! We had intended to have it for Sunday only had to eat the day before. Please can the use by date be a further date as on the screen as days eg 5 + days Thank you .
Very tasty chicken
Delicious. I prefer my chicken corn fed and able to mingle. Free range chickens eat and get up to all sorts. This tasted of proper chicken and cooked beautifully. Watch the pricing. I phoned up as the per kilo price was also showing as the whole bird price. I thought it would be a small high quality bird but was massive. Tesco refunded the difference with no quibble and hopefully fixed the glitch.
