    You have a responsibility to participate ethically in determining our food supply chains. Moy Park supply Sainsburys. Read about them and undercover reports. You'll realise why this meat is so cheap and the reality hidden behind plastic packaging and marketing phrases/pics. I'm not vegan but I won't participate in this horror. (edited)

    Much prefer thighs n legs over dry breast meat.
    Saying that, I can't recommend trying turkey breast enough. It'll never turn out dry. Lighter taste than chicken tho. Its all down to the seasoning 😋

    It’s quite sad that you can buy meat for this little. What a sad waste of life

    I thought that the advertising agency stopped people from using words like 'pure', 'fresh', 'light' and 'tasty'... These words mean nothing and are misleading.

    For example...

    Saw a pack of chicken burgers which said 'made with 100% pure chicken breast'... The ingredients looked something like this: Water, minced chicken breast (35%), chicken thigh, none stock etc etc

    So what does 'made with 100% pure chicken breast' mean??
    Precious321's avatar
    All it means is that chicken used in the burger is all breast and not other parts. Burgers usually have other ingredients but, 35% chicken is very low! That’s what should be regulated. If there’s less than 50% chicken in an item labelled Chicken Burger I’m not buying that.

    About 1.9kg of that is bone and tendons/gristle. Cold.

    Ah so you're that annoying person who takes one bite out of a chicken drumstick and acts like you've finished

    Are they british? I like British birds (edited)

    I like birds who will happily nip down an alleyway with you after a few drinks and some false information about your job, martial status and lifestyle in general. Particularly bountiful in places like Margate and Scarborough.

    When you say 'fresh', does this mean that they've been produced that morning?
    DavidFenwick87's avatar
    No, it means it's cold...not frozen...
