This is cheaper than Asda - I find these chickens to be FAR superior to other supermarket chickens.

Medium is approx £3.00 per chicken
Large is approx £4.00 per chicken - I've just bought a 1.8KG for under £4.

these were in Bolton but definitely looked to be a National promo.

Got yerself some Dunn River jerk seasoning, take the back bone outta the chicken, squash it down. Rub the seasoning all over it and leave it overnight. Next afternoon, get the BBQ fired up, whack the chicken on it. Leave it till it is nicely cooked (crispy dark skin). Go down the chippy and buy a portion of chips. Serve the chicken and chips. Mmmmmmm....nice!

Hot deal.

That's how they did it when I was in Portugal recently - cooked splayed out with no backbone!. Easy to cut too, just need a pair of sturdy scissors to cut into 4 portions. MMMM, I might try that, good tip :thumbsup:

I really dont care what name it is to be honest, I saw this program and I thought was silly. It is a marketing thing, been going on for years.

Just to say that these "arent!" Free Range but still yummy!

So you think its silly to deceive customers by packaging / naming products to give the effect that you a buying quality fresh british produce rather than stuff transported over from thailand?

If I was going to mess on with cooking in the first place, then stop to trek out for chip shop chips, I think I would have made do with something from there in the first place!
If the BBQ is already running, there are MILLION things better to cook & eat with a jerk chicken than chips!

Tool true - to much of this marketing double-speak. It's a bit like some of the deals on this site - the number of shady retailers selling second-hand goods as if they are new with a lot of meaningless words instead of calling it like it really is!

The thing is, the get away with it all, people just get suckered in by it all. Before I saw that program during the week, even I had assumed Oakham was a location, not just a trade name, although I am not a regular M&S shopper, and hadn't bought any of the Oakham products.

Due to the pressure & inspection of export facilities by European & US governments and companies who will be selling the product, places will be under pressure to have decent standards. That said, the staff working in those factories and who handle the food are living in buildings not as good as our garden sheds, up to their armpits in sewage - which somewhat negates the relatively high structural standard of the factories! :-(

Thankfully autoclaves sterilise the canned products somewhat!

I guess it's really tough on the dumb folk that don't read the labels properly. If they're that concerned about buying British, they should read the labels. End.

What happens in reality is that although we accept goods from countries that must adhere to our EEC standards in terms of food hygiene, there is very little in the way of actual physical auditing of the actual premises - if ever. We rely on appropriate documentation from the country of origin, stamped by their food health export authority, and the odd random inspection of randomly selected goods at the border checkpoint.

last time i looked at these all the birds had burn't hocks which really put me off.
also are they succulent becuase they add lots of water, lol

not a bad price though, just a bad price usually as quality is no better than tesco/asda
#25
Why do you go on sooo much about the welfare of chickens?What about cattle,pigs,rabbits,sheep,fish,horses etc etc etc etc etc?If you want to cry over burnt chicken haunches,then cry about all the other animal suffering.I'm sick to death of all the sanctimonious moaners on here,going on about animal welfare.If animal foodstuff is profitable,there will be cruel shortcuts to feed the demand.Take your head for a wobble,unless of course you can solve the daily meat demand of the world.Imagine how many animals are slaughtered daily just to supply the US and UK armies?Not to mention the McDonalds,Kentucky Fried Chicken,BurgerKing and the worlds prison population.Think big,and then the penny might drop.You'll NEVER change the status quo.STOP banging your head against a brick wall,it's becoming very boring.:whistling:

No my friend,I don't wish to offend anyone,anymore than they want to offend me.What a riduculously 'PC' world we live in.I drive a wagon for a living,have 4 kids,and sincerely need cheap food.I know it's damn cruel what happens to these poor animals,but(and there it is folks,the almighty 'but') this is the world I am used to.:oops: I'm open to suggestions.I net 250 a week.Without tax credits,I'm truly lost.Who invented this system???

Guaranteed Succulent?

How exactly do you claim on the guarantee? I can imagine there being something of a strange debate. One where the word 'succulent' is repeated so often the sound of it starts to lose all meaning within the English language.

I always imagined it means if you take it back and tell them it wasn't succulent in your opinion they will hand you your cash back - luckily mine always have been succulent.

BTW the chickens I got were reared by a 'M.Gilmore' in Co.Antrim :-D As were all the ones I saw.

Sadly it's not as easy as that. The phrase 'Made in the UK' can be aplied to a label even if only the very last part of the manufacturing process takes place in the UK. Therefore it's a bit rude to start calling people dumb if the label isn't forthcoming with all of the information.

Agreed with the M.Gilmore in Co.Antrim quote I have seen this on the chickens I have bought from M&S before so cannot understand?:thinking:

Oakhan chickens are not as good as they once were. There is a difference in texture, taste compared with a year ago. I am wondering if M&S dropped the standard since the initial marketing launch. Likewise when the Sainbury Freedom chickens definitely taste a lot better when the Jamie Oliver programme was on TV three months' ago, but the same label chicken has defintely gone more intensively farmed since then as the meat is softer and more tasteless.

its not illegal at all. Thats exactly what they are doing.

e.g. Birds Eyes The Great British Menu Roast chicken dinner

1. Has a british flag all over the front with a picture of a typical countryside

2. is called the GREAT BRITSH Menu range

3. Has MADE IN THE UK in big letters.

The vegetables are from The Republic of Ireland and the chicken is fromn thailand. It is packaged in the UK.

This is not illegal but immoral imho
