    sorry if its in the wrong thread.....
    I'm a bit gutted.
    Ordered a regular chicken from asdas and they delivered "extra tasty chicken" its a whole raw chicken and i've looked on the syns calculator and it says its free, but i've got a feeling i did it wrong - its only my 2nd day EE and worried now about this flipin chicken!
    Any advice appreciated please :cry:

    chicken is free if you cook it yourself and take the skin off..
    doesn't matter if it's cheap stuff or expensive stuff, it's all still just chicken..
    this of course does not apply to chicken in anything orange ( breadcrumbs or batter etc .. )

    Hi Busy Bee...

    Hoping I am right but aslong as you remove the skin (as with any chicken) it will be syn free on extra easy and red...

    Herbs and spices are free and that's all that's on Extra Tasty, surely

    Good Luck and happy chicken eating xxx

    i am not sure that this will be free actually - they call it extra tasty because it is basted with a sugar and oil mixture according to their website :(

    But even if it is synnable I don't think it will be horrifically high in syns

    if it's basted, isn't that just on the skin though?
    it's uncooked so you could skin it and rinse it under the tap to wash the sugar and oil off?

    Ooooooooooh I'm so confused now!!!
    It did say basted. I did rinse the chicken under the tap. I didn't eat the skin. The chicken did taste different. Definately had a flavour to it.
    Shall I just ignore it now. There's nothing I can do and I'm only making myself irritated about it!!!!!!!
    Stupid asdas making something extra tasty!!!!!! Hee hee!!!!!!?

    if it bothers you that much, count it as a few syns and leave it at that.. I doubt you ate the whole thing yourself and it's probably not much more than a couple of spoon fulls of oil and sugar..

    The chickens in the rotisserie bit have loads of sins about 40 or so, so always buy raw from asda

    Surely unless it was injected with fat or flavour it should be ok with skin removed?

    That's just it, they inject it so they don't need to keep basting it. Think morrisons is the only one who doesn't inject

    Oh please noooooo not the injected fat discussion again

    They DO NOT INJECT FAT INTO CHICKENS

    Seriously this has been discussed again and again and several supermarkets have been contacted numerous people who have worked in them have commented and they don't do it. It's a story that's got out of hand like the Weatherspoons potatoes one
