It sells for cheaper (have seen go on sale for as low as $20 for the 4 kg box).

Having said that, it's effing disgusting. Seasoned = injected full of salt water to pump up the weight. Those chicken breasts are GROSS.

The chicken is supplied by Sunrise Poultry which supplies a number of restaurants (Cactus Club, Joeys, etc.) so I wouldn't exactly say its gross.

Yes I would say it's gross. Cactus club and joey's are gross and the food at those places sucks.

The process that they put frozen chicken breasts through changes the texture to mush and makes them uber salty. They also don't cook properly vs a fresh chicken breast which on a $/g protein basis is JUST AS CHEAP

In addition, the chicken that sunrise supplies to restaurants are fresh. Keep that in mind.

The frozen ones just suck. As DaFonz and others have stated, pumped up and taste is shit.

Fuck me you guys were right. The old frozen chicken breasts I used were amazing, no saltiness, perfect texture .. tasted 100000x better than this shit I just picked up. I was literally gagging trying to eat it, it was so mushy and rubbery even when fully cooked

The ones I used to use, and still use as my preferred source are:
PC Blue Menu Easy Cook! Chicken Breast Portions - PC - Products

Yes they're still 'seasoned' but honestly they don't taste like it, honestly the best frozen chicken I've ever eaten

I bought some turkey sausages at Walmart for $3. They are a bit salty, and better if chop them up and mix them in with eggs/egg whites and peppers.

if you look in the wednesdays edition of the courier. The newspaper, a page after the middle insertion of the flyers - there's a 1.50 off coupon for Milk 4 L.

I might scrummaging these recycle bins for some more lol. 1.50 off is HELLA good deal.

Ends March 3rd though.

Never buy frozen chicken. If you read the label, there's a lot of water they inject into the meat. You cannot do that with fresh chicken.

They also add other stuff to it. That's why it tastes like shit. Also, when cooked, they shrink a lot. Bacon these days are like that as well. All water. Gotta read the label and pay attention to the order of ingredients , not just the daily recommended and whatnot. If water is first, second, or high on the list, you are paying for water.

The list of ingredients on a label must be put in order of most used to least in whatever amount of product measured.

Cheapest prices on eggs. Extra large (makes a difference) eggs are cheapest at Superstore. They are in packages of 18 in styrofoam containers. You need to buy them in groups of two.

How to calculate cost......... take price and divide by 18, then multiply by 12 to get cost of dozen. Extra large eggs are more worth it. I even weighed the difference between medium, large and extra large. Extra large is best buy.

Hmmm this is intriguing: MadDeal Deal of the Day in Vancouver

$25 for $200 of Beef, Chicken or Seafood.

Edit: Nevermind the food on the site is pricey. You get 4x $50 vouchers, which you can only use one voucher per month, but if you buy just one item the cheapest steak (http://www.gourmetsecrets.ca:8083/NE...oduct.jsp?id=2) comes out $50 for 6x6oz steaks or 2.25lbs, which is about $22/lb before the coupon, but you gotta pay shipping which starts at $20.

So in this example you'd be paying approx $15.40/lb if my calculations are correct; assuming each voucher is worth $25/4 = $6.25, plus the additional amount above $50 with tax and shipping at $28.40 = $34.65, divided by 2.25 lbs to $15.40.

Big orange box of spinach for like $20 bucks at Sunrise (chinatown)
If you eat a LOT of spinach.. id recommend that..

Rule of thumb, if your buying vegetables of any sort.. Go to a chinese super market (ex. Sunrise or a small shop upstairs of T&T on 1st ave)
They sell vegetables for like half the price compared to superstore/t&t/walmart...

Tried the Lilydale chicken breasts when they were on sale. Not impressed. So much water. The ones from Thrifty Foods are good.

So where are you guys getting your chicken?

Chicken breasts on sale this weekend. $2 per Lb. Not too bad considering 9lbs cost about $40 at costco.

Guys - T&T has fresh chicken breasts on sale for $2.99 almost every single week. Nesters, save-on and iga will also rotate them and I've seen them as low as $2.49/lb.

At those prices, there's absolutely NO REASON to buy that frozen junk.
