Good deal.

oooh...good price. May check on the way home tonight. Heat

Bah - go to a butcher instead - my local one does 2.27kg of fillets for £10.99 all day every day - not a special offer etc...

Should post his business on here and see if it gets as much heat as this might

I agree. They always claim meat's on sale at half price, when it's still much more than a butcher. My local sells chicken breast fillets at £3.99 per kilo. Take a trip to a butcher once in a while, stock up and freeze.

I now refuse to buy eggs, milk, fresh meat and fresh veg from any of the major supermarkets as they are always cheaper at local stores.

Just as a side note to this/these. I'd love to support my local butcher and do realise that on the whole that you do get fresher and potentially cheaper meat. BUT......maybe my job means that I cant get to the butcher before they close at 5pm and maybe I dont want to spend 11 quid on 2.27kg of chicken. Not being arsey but as far as supermarket chicken breasts go it's a good deal in my eyes. I could refuse to go to local stores to get my veg etc as it would be cheaper to grow my own I guess..........it's down to convenience, modern society eh? Tut ;-)

Eh? Is that big chicken trying to eat that baby?

As moonmonkeys says, my local butcher simply isn't open when I'm not working. Same for the greengrocer, and the fishmonger. Therefore I either need to run the gauntlet of chavs hanging around town on a Saturday, or I can spend my weekends actually relaxing and do my shopping at supermarkets on my way home from work. Guess what I do?

Also my GF used to work for a butcher, and believe me just cos its from a butcher does not make it better. Its actually not illegal to buy Asda smart price chicken, unpack it then sell it yourself at a rather nice markup :whistling:

'evening all !! :whistling:Nice price.... yummee


Lol!:)

Ok price ,a few things,Yes the butcher can be cheaper then the Big 4..We get meat from both,but that is not always the case sometimes it is cheaper to go to Asda etc!
But one thing for sure much better chicken at the butcher,bigger and not full of water unlike the supermarkets.

Well, your choice is your choice. It seems a little coincidental to me that all supermarkets operate the same practices, though. I go to the butcher on the weekend - I feel that the little extra inconvenience is worthwhile to avoid compromising some of my principles. If more people started doing it, the supermarkets would (hopefully) start competing rather than price gouging. When I need chicken from a supermarket, the frozen section is always better value (even though they inject 10% water to boost the weight).

I bet its not very common to buy chicken from Asda, unpack and sell it on, when is quite common to get 3 decent size chickens in your local bucher from between £5-7

Also if you like the frozen, water injected crap you get in the supermarket, its quite easy to go to your local food cash & carry and buy a box of frozen Thai and/or Brazilian chicken breast equivelant to £1.25lb :whistling:

LOL looks like the chicken police will go to any level to get their point across :giggle:

Heat from me OP - great deal!

Great price, great quality too - had some for tea.

Epic picture ftw

like golddust instore ... offers like this always go in hours in our local asda. max three per customer by the way.

waitrose have fresh bags of chicken breast £7.40ish and you get 8 or 9 and they are brill

No-one would ever pay £6.74 for 613g or £10.99 a kilo. So the "saving" would never be this much.

if u want chicken... Iceland £4 for 800/900gs job done! frozen so it keeps until u wanna use it!

What's wrong with you two fantasists? Meat from a good traditional butcher is better quality, and sometimes cheaper, than from a supermarket.

tek-monkey - I am sorry that neither you or anyone else in your family has any time to spare to try it.
geegee-pinata - how much would you like to bet?

Yes, meat from a local butcher is better quality and i buy mine from our local. Did i say otherwise?? This doesn't alter the fact that this was a great deal for some people. And am sure that chicken swapping does happen. Fantasists? - don't make me laugh, fool!

OK, let's get this straight: You think a traditional local butcher would pop into Asda, but their cheap water inflated stuff on plastic trays, take it back to his butcher's shop, unpack it and put it on sale?

And you call me a fool! :roll:

Who gives a flying (or unflying) ****!!!
I buy supermarket chicken and I like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It's packed and dated and that's all I need to know! Who's to say there are no dishonest butchers out there selling chicken a few days old. How would I ever know?

Also the 5% water is good for you as we're supposed to drink 2 litres of the stuff a day anyway!

I said it could and probably has happened. (perhaps not common practice )
And yes i do
you seem to be all too involved in all things chicken like :whistling:

geegee-pinata you seem to be all over the place on this.

I said it could and probably has happened. (perhaps not common practice )



The thing is you can say what you like, but if it's nonsense you have to expect some people to challenge it. This deal is for cheap supermarket chicken. Regardless of any animal welfare issues it's a massive shame that local independent butchers continue to be driven out of business by the big supermarkets. A few people have realised that proper butchers offer better quality, and can also offer better value, than supermarkets, but many continue to think that supermarkets are offering the best prices.

By all means challenge my quality and value claims. But don't just make stuff up about butchers buying Asda chicken and reselling it. tek-monkey simply said it's not illegal to do that, but you were daft enough to run with his suggestion and post, with some confidence, that it actually is common practice.

I am fed up with you now. Proper independent butchers would not do this. Do you understand that?
