Fine if you like your chicken rare!

Extra large chicken, 40 minutes on gas mark 5, surely it will be fine, the label says so grin

Do it...then when you get ill you can claim compensation!

HoneyDragon Sun 01-May-16 16:17:21

I might be ever so slightly dead though?

NeedACleverNN Sun 01-May-16 16:21:43

I'll claim the money for you. Sorted

I had a lamb joint from Tesco today 0.850kg cooks in 50 minutes according to the front, back of the packaging said exactly the same! It's a good job I actually do know how to cook!

Everyone likes a bit of food poisoning wink

That's a bit worrying really.

I don't cook so would rely on instructions

HoneyDragon Sun 01-May-16 16:46:15

Needaclever that's ever so decent of you, fanks mate <touched>

Bernard I would cook your lamb joint in 46mins, 20 mins plays 13mins per pound so tescos would be right for nice pink lamb.

Blimey, even Delia's fast roast chicken is 45 minutes on gas mark 8 (and that's for a much smaller 3lb chicken).

I'm guessing, since there's a bit of the '6' missing on the bottom left of the number, there's also a '1' completely missing/unprinted in the 'hours'. But bloody dangerous, what if someone who didn't know better had bought that particular bird? Salmonella side orders all round.

I aim to please

I tweeted Tesco, so they are on the ball in terms of killing their customer prevention <polishes halo>

It was clearly missing the one in the hour section. Anyhoo, I cooked it and lived. Sorry to all those who wanted compo wink
