FROZEN CHICKEN VS FRESH CHICKEN

Hi i need some advice, i have been told frozen is not good when cutting uo for comp cos of the salt content etc, and have been advised that fresh chicken, is best, 'cos it fresh'

I have been doing some shoppiung and the price comparison for frozen vs fresh, is by loads different.

    TBH sodium issues in terms of comp come in around the last week

    BUT

    some of the froaen stuff in supermarkets is sodium rich

    then again some fresh stuff is

    go to a good butchers or check the packaing

    also look out for carb/fat content

    Tesco Healthy Living Frozen chicken breasts are 98% Chicken and 2% water and are pretty cheap also in comparison to the fresh stuff.

    Some of the cheaper chicken is not great as they pump it with water and maltodextrin.

    However, there are some cheaper chicken breasts that you can get, Lidl do good ones which dont contain much salt, sugar or water.

    Yes, the chicken that they do in the boxes (frozen). Not the bags.

    I'm eating Costco frozen chicken at the minute, it's very nice and doesn't seem to have anything added. Breasts work out £4 a kilo.
