Thanks, I'll pick up some for my wife later.

She hates touching chicken, so I'm expecting her to ask me to rub oil all over her breasts!
Just on my way there now and wanted to see what the new deal was. Thanks for posting, going to be making some chicken and avocado wraps later!
£4 a kilo is very cheap for chicken breasts, what's the quality like and where has it originated from?

If you really want to buy only British-made products, best not to go to a shop named "Iceland", huh?

1st thank you Op, always load up the freezer when this deal is on. But found last time a lot of water come out of the chicken while cooking but think it is meant to be 98% not had this before. Only will be buying one & testing it before stocking up. As for being Polish that doesn't bother me all rather buy British Free range chickens but I can't justify the price.. HEAT ADDED

These have been on offer many times and nobody have yet managed to find the Origin of these.
As for being Foreign possibly they are, but check out where a lot of frozen chicken comes from and the chicken in ready meals, curry's, meat pies etc. and you will find the vast majority of it is Foreign , as are many other foods in this Country
Nothing at all irregular about buying or eating imported foods in this UK , we eat it everyday.

Your welcome. Not certain about the water content as we normally cooked them in sauce or casseroles, so wouldn't really notice that.

​All meat now HAS to state it's Origin. It's found in a small black circle (with letters) which identifies the meat plant it was slaughtered and packed in. The symbol can be 'decrypted' using the Food Standards Agency website.
nice price
And you know it's all true.... when they say.... these are the best standards in food production terms
You know they would never lie or conceal anything.... that would undermine your trust and faith in food production

yer right

When you say fresh do you mean fresh?

As far as poultry is concerned, fresh is usually what's served by butchers..

This is a prepacked product and cannot be fresh, by definition.

Kindest regards
Besides, my Aldi deal is much better value for money..

Due to the aforementioned reasons, i have no option but to vote this cold. Sorry.

I'll get my coat..
brilliant if you love the taste of torture.

Fresh means not frozen & not previously frozen.
The term fresh has nothing to do with the form of packaging, it's prior living conditions or how long ago it was murdered!

Fresh means not frozen, something not past it's use by date etc, not what kind of packaging the retailer chooses...
Have to vote cold. The quality of Iceland meat is awful. The meat has also travelled a lot and cannot be described as fresh by me. Id rather eat a good vegetarian meal than this type of battery farmed, over medicated pseudo meat.
This is a great price for poor folk. X)

Do you have any evidence of this? Fresh means freshly slaughtered.. just like how fresh orange juice is something made there and then, not with concentrate. I rest my case.

Many warm wishes..

The use of the labelling term "fresh" is not defined under regulations as a term used to denote when the product was produced etc. it simply refers to not tinned, frozen, or otherwise preserved.
This is why, for example, frozen chicken is not labelled fresh even though it may have been slaughtered and frozen one day ago before purchase. The product loses the right to use the term fresh because it has been preserved by freezing (and most likely added water & chemicals).

​Your mad if you think butchers don't get there's prepacked either.



I think some butchers do slaughter their own.. and that would correctly be classified as being fresh.. As you correctly said, the minute things are added, one cannot use this term.

Another example is sashimi - this is always fresh.. i.e. made within hours.. no additives, packaging etc.

Kind regards
firstofficer

Of course.

"Meat:
36. Virtually all carcase meat is chilled following slaughter, principally as a hygiene measure. The term “fresh” is traditionally used to differentiate raw meat from that which has been (chemically) preserved. It would serve no purpose to disqualify chilled meat from use of the term “fresh”. Use of the term “fresh” in these circumstances is acceptable.
37. Meat that has been previously frozen but which is sold thawed would not be considered by the average consumer to be “fresh”. The term “fresh” should not be used in these circumstances.
Fish
38. Use of the term "fresh" to describe fish that has been kept chilled on ice, but not stored deep frozen, is acceptable."

No it isn't. £5 for 2kg frozen breasts from Farm Foods is though.
