Frozen Healthy Eating chicken breast. Online is only 900g version (5.99). I found it in Tesco Beckton. Label wasn"t even yellow so its strange 'cause in this price you can usually buy tesco value breasts.

I saw these in Tesco this afternoon but there was only about 4 or 5 miniscule bits of chicken in the packet so I decided against buying. Even at the reduced price it didn't seem very good value to me.

that's as maybe but to me, for what I could see in the packet, it certainly wasn't worth £1.99 never mind the £3 or whatever they used to sell them at. Each to his own I guess.

Chicken is expensive unless you buy a whole one the is farmed & packaged cheaply.

The word is "minuscule", with a 'u'.

Just thought I would point this out, because (a) many people think 'mini' and so spell it wrongly and (b) I am a sad old git with nothing better to do than correct other people's posts.

Thanks most sincerely for this, beccajay! I am certainly big enough to acknowledge that I was unaware of these citations, and duly eat humble pie.

I have learned something today, for which I am always grateful.

This is an example of the English language constantly altering over time with usage. Even though a word is being used incorrectly, it will become "accepted" by dictionary compilers if enough people use it! And so our language changes.
