Lidl chicken breast CHEAP

24 posts in this topic

Very good deal but cooked some last night & 30% reduction in weight following cooking due to excessive water content. Still cheap though.

i normally buy chicken from the butchers and ive noticed less water loss than supermarket chicken.

Is it the reg price or short term offer? Also, refrigerated or frozen?

Get mine from Smithfield butchers, 5kg for £24.99 and apart from the very noticeable lack of size loss once cooked, they are not 'chewy' like supermarket brands.

May give Lidl a try though, as buying 5kg at a time and freezing/defrosting it is a pain in the ****.

Farmfoods are doing 3 x 1kg bags of skinless and boneless chicken breast for £10, 4 breast per bag and are a good size, not noticed much size loss after cooking.

Asda smart price frozen breast £3.99 per kilo :) i eat a bag a day. Sure it's got some water so it's 27grams of protein per 100 grams. Still a bloody bargain though.
