View Full Version : frozen chicken breasts

10-13-2004, 08:06 AM
my local grocery store has a 2 for 1 special this week on the big bags of frozen chicken breasts

i usually by the "fresh" chicken in the meat section

this would definitely be more cost-effective, but i'm thinking that this stuff must be pretty cheap and not just in price

anybody buy these bags?

i get them if it's cheap and not within a couple weeks of a show. yeah...i mean the protein is chicken protein, but it's still somewhat processed. i would always bake it and not grill it, though. the bagged stuff comes out so dry.

go for it...

it's not really "processed" unless it SAYS it's processed... if it's whole chicken breasts that were frozen, you're good to go

the frozen skinless/boneless breasts are the same price as the fresh stuff where I live.
about 4$ per pound give or take 0.50$

I've seen them as high as 6$ per pound for regular perdue or tyson chicken breasts
I've never seen em lower than 3.50$ per pound (at least in the last 2 years)

I find they taste better than the fresh stuff as they are so much less dry.
I toss a frozen 40oz bag in the oven (preheated at 375) for about 60 minutes and thats it!

i just got some for 1.99/lb on sale at Kroger, but that was once in a lifetime sale. maybe i need to move down to Ft. Bragg.
