I've seen some butchers do it at 3kg for £10. Not sure of the quality though.

How much protein do you get though, that's the subject of the thread.

Your right, getting it from butcher and Halal . The prices are the same if it's not halal right?

I can look at buying frozen as I freeze mine anyways. Do you have to know a good place?

Lol, I guess time to look at other halal butchers or online sources.

I'm not sure if it is halal or not, but wouldn't be surprised if it is as many places sell halal without making it too well known as some people won't buy if it is.

Baby chicken


aren't they called chicklet?

They are where I come from
i think the cheapest way to get protein is eggs, cheap ones from the lidl and iceland stores.

however, you risk getting a problem with too much cholesterol if you eat too many eggs. apparently it is not recommended that you should eat more than 4 eggs in a week.

tools.myfooddata.com/nut…1-1

Price per egg ~ 13p. Amount of protein per egg ~ 6 grams
Price per 100g chicken breast at £6 a kilo = 60p. Amount of protein per 100g breast ~ 32 grams
Price per 100g baby chicken at £2.75 per 1.2 kilo = 23p. Amount of protein per 100g at random of a baby chicken (averaged) ~ 19 grams

This means that for every 20g serving of protein, you will be paying the following prices:
egg: 43p
Chicken breast: 38p
Baby chicken: 23p

A recent "hot" deal for protein powder on this site stated that 30p per 20g serving was good. Just to give you an idea.


I hope that helps.

Send me your pic.

JK. I mean that if you believe the figures are wrong you should state what is incorrect. OP gave his prices and I quoted my source for nutritional information to help him out. If you can do better then you should add to OP's thread by giving assistance.

Yes, your costs are way off and you are comparing poor quality intensive farmed meat and eggs from chicken breeds that we don't eat here in UK.

Ergo flawed.

Garbage in, garbage out springs to mind.

But any real food is better than the garbage protein slop.

Cost are what op has quoted and therefore has access to. No point me quoting something else. If you can do better then feel free to post details.
