    What is the cheapest £/kg supermarket precooked/oven cook chicken?

    I buy Tesco Everyday Value burgers at £0.97 per 456g bag so £2.13/kg but as the chicken content is 47% it works out to £4.53/kg of chicken. Is there something cheaper? Must be precooked ready to eat or for oven cooking, not raw, pan cooked or microwave cooked. Cheers

    be careful of pre cooked chickens at morrisons because they look like they died of starvation

    why does it have to be pre cooked any particular reason other than it tastes nasty the few times I tasted it.

    47% chicken....wow

    Are you looking at chicken for protein intake ?

    Why do I come on this site?

    ​I'm not sure why do u

    Get yourself some cat food, probably taste better than value stuff.

    I've just googled these , they sound rank . Think I'd rather eat the packet .

    Has your mum kicked you out? X)

    Cannot beat buying several fresh (I found cheapest Lidle) chickens & cook them yourself.

    I don't always have the necessary time and items to cook with a pan on stove and clean. Putting into the oven on foil requires no supervision or cleaning.

    I was also shocked but the content has little to do with the brand if that is what you mean. The branded ones at twice the cost are not much better, most I have seen is 55% on burgers/fingers.

    Mostly yes. High protein, low fat actual food that doesn't taste terrible.

    Oh I see , there's plenty of that going about but that kinda comes down to individual taste , a simple Google search will point you towards the bodybuilding forums plenty of good info to be had there.

    ​You do realise you can put chicken in the oven? Depending on weight, it's 2 hours to cook and job done. Almost zero cleaning if you use tin foil and then it's just getting the meat off the bones.

    I don't think you'll find anything close to the protein level in a processed product.

    Body builders I know weigh their food to make sure their levels of protein, carbs, fibre etc. are all correct. There are no shortcuts.

    ​I eat 100% chicken or turkey. Don't touch that reformed crap. It's disgusting

    Unfortunately, precooked chicken is very expensive in UK supermarkets. In the US I could buy larger portions with a small premium on raw price, here it is tiny 200g-300g packs. The cheapest big portion is to buy frozen uncooked, usually runs around £4-5/kg. These aren't 100%, usually 85-90% meat with added water.

    From memory Lidle/Aldi (medium) fresh chickens are less than £2 kg.

    Sadly not everyone has one nearby. Tesco and Asda are cheapest from the big supermarkets.

    Filled up with that but Aldi/Lidl are cheapest on bone in fresh chicken.

    Worth checking their websites regularly as they are both growing rapidly.
