Until you popped up....

They may or may not be halal. Need to know the slaughterhouse.

normal deal in Farmfoods, this 1 x 3.25kg for a tenner or 3 X 1kg for a tenner

We think these are not as good as fresh breast however for cutting up or flavoring it's fine. Curry's. Hunters children ect. The breast is large to so 2 will feed 3 people..We buy and use all the time.

It is the normal price not an offer but works out at £3.07 Per KG.

Also if you have any of the vouchers (£2.50 off £25 or £5 off £50) (http://www.farmfoods.co.uk/Vouchers.php) and buy either 3 or 5 bags you can get it cheaper. Discount isn't worth it after the 5 bags as it doesn't get any cheaper.

Worth it if you eat a lot of chicken.

1 bag = £10 / 3.25 = £3.07 Per KG
3 bags = £30 - £2.50 voucher = £27.50 / 9.75 = £2.82 Per KG
5 bags = £50 - £5.00 voucher = £45.00 / 16.25 = £2.77 Per KG
8 bags = £80 - £7.50 voucher = £72.50 / 26 = £2.79 Per KG
10 bags = £100 - £10.00 voucher = £90.00 / 32.5 = £2.77 Per KG

So what do you think the other 20% is?

Been buying this for about a year . you get the occasional rubbery piece but overall its good quality.its far Better than the asda tesco frozen mank

Surely amongst the 10 shops that should do online as well... Add Primark, BMStores, Aldi, Lidl, Poundland and a few others.

It is definitely 3.25 kilograms for a tenner. However the devil is in the detail. The breasts are 80% chicken, 20% water. Taking that ratio into account and using the FF vouchers the bag works out at about £3.50 per kilo of chicken. On the high street that's as cheap as it gets. My local butcher in Stevenage charges twenty quid for five kilograms of 100% chicken breast, so it's horses for courses. I've tried the FF ones and their fine.

Good point also

3.25 kg chicken for a tenner 80% of which is chicken therefore 2.6kg of chicken for a tenner

£3.84 for a kg of chicken without vouchers

I used to get chicken from farm foods but noticed a deterioration of quality and now get it fresh from Iceland....

This is a real good deal if u don't mind rubbery chicken!!

Please do not cook these from frozen. Very dangerous. Especially if feeding children.

can be cooked straight from frozen



Is this pre-cooked chicken and not fresh frozen chicken then?

I actually think the chicken is really nice. Whether it has changed, sometimes you have to cut off the edges but on the whole its great especially in sauces, sandwiches or slow cooking etc

The last batch I got tastes revolting and very salty

Will not be buying again, I'll pay more for good quality butcher stuff

Not worth it considering 20% is water, basically instead of 3.5 kilos you are just getting 2.8 kg of rubbery chicken!

Snap. It was great until about 6 months ago when they changed the quality and no matter how you cooked it was slimy and textureless. Anyone know whether this is still the sub par but dirt cheap stuff?

Crap!!! Injected with water and will shrink... Get to the butchers or musclefood and get good deals

Same here, buying about a year and it's been excellent, unfortunately the last batch I bought have been poor quality. Hopefully a one off and next lot will be good again.

Not always how much you save and how does it taste is the most important. Just google " factory farming chicken "...

awful chicken . If ur gonna defrost a couple of pieces then do it in a bucket. use to live on this until I figured out buying a water filter was cheaper

Never tried hunter's children before

Forgot the smiley sorry ;-)

I taught myself how to joint a chicken a few years ago it's not too difficult if you have a decent knife. If you start off with good fresh whole chicken you will provide yourself with the freshest breast, thighs, drum sticks, wings and stock you can get. It's not that much of a chore either (I actually enjoy it).

Does anyone know if these are halal?
