Wait for the added water/battery etc comments

Ok, it’s not top notch but for that price it’s fine, drain the water & enjoy . Would buy loads if in my Tesco! Heat added nice spot Op
At least it's proper chicken. Chicken dipper time.
Nuts. I was in there earlier, the only place I didn't look...

And thanks stevesipmax now I feel old because my grandma used to brine loads of stuff. Have a look Here. Although it's different these days, you don't usually go running around catching a chicken to wring it's neck.

This may be a silly question, buy why would you need to add brine to something if your freezing it. Surely freezing pro longs the life with no need to keep it in salt water?

They add water to the chicken to increase the plumpness and weight of the pieces, the salt is added to encourage the water/moisture to stay in the chicken whilst it's cooking, and normally they mask the saltiness by adding some sugar in as well.

You are correct in a way. It just makes stuff taste better, and cook better. Folks say they add water to make more weight etc. It's just a bonus.
I used to work in a meat factory, cooked meats are steam cooked as well as heavily brined. It really is like trying to eat cardboard if it's not done that way.

Basically if you kill something meaty and eat it straight away it has a big risk of tasting dry as anything as there's no water in there, cooking evaporates it all and before it's cooked its gone dry.
One grandad had a farm and the other was a miner who caught and eat wild rabbits / pheasant etc.
I'm always grateful of my grandad as he was amazing. I always remember him catching rabbits with his waking stick
And then teaching us how to skin them etc.

Thanks Tommy.

You even has a cool name.
This is go to chicken. I only buy chicken fillets and mini chicken fillets out of Tesco after years of trying other brands. Fantastic deal. I guessing they are rebranding the packaging or something. Heat from me xxxx
Hmmmmm. Loads of frozen items in the clearance. Cynical me thinks they probably had a power failure on one of their freezers. Definitely wouldn't touch reduced value chicken 🤢. Might be alright for feeding to the dogs

You think they'd risk the bad publicity to make 20 quid?
