these frozen chicken breast aren't the greatest, seem to get soggy after defrosting, but I buy them, use them for souvlaki, i.e. with a long marinade, or satay, work just fine in a kebab, in terms of knife and forking this meat, I wouldn't do it, even on a sandwich, but the price is right for certain needs,

No Frills is becoming VERY slow to post their sale flyer. Mind you, they don't have that much to crow about

Weird, i have no problem with them, just ate one today as this sale is the same as this weeks. And i froze the rest of them as i have from previous no frills sales.
Though i tend to bake them for an hour after coating them with some olive oil, salt and spices.

I also cooked one on the BBQ for the first time last week, came out great, only took 45 mins.
In fact in Rand McNally they wear hats on their feet and hamburgers eat people

sorry, i missed the "fresh" part, I assumed they were the frozen ones, that come in a sealed bag, gonna go and buy a bunch of these since chicken is so versatile, especially the breast,

While the sale that starts tomorrow is for fresh bone-in chicken breast, I don't bother thawing out the boneless frozen chicken breasts. I cook them straight from frozen and find that they turn out fine.

Those frozen ones are processed somehow, i suspect they are soaked in some kind of preservative brine before being frozen. I avoid those since they are as cruddy as you said.

Where I am, the fresh chicken breasts are not yet available for this price. This is likely due to regional sale variation.

Will have to try that. Their value is undisputed (for me). Probably thawing draws out all the brine and moisture and you get a tough piece of meat.

Agree with the frozen pieces. Seems like they inject them with liquid/brine and they end up a defrosted piece of crap.
At least I assume that, because I haven't bought them in years due to the extremely poor quality.

P.S. Really not thrilled that No Frills no longer has a hard copy Flyer delivered or even at the store front.
It used to be only death and taxes were inevitable. Now, of course, there's shipping and handling, too.

As I said, don't got there.

I already posted about that, but people got carried away and the thread got locked.

Not to hijack this thread, but some No Frills sell a 5KG box of fresh boneless skinless Halal chicken breasts for $50. Combine that with the 20% in Optimum points on fresh chicken (plus this week I got the get 7500 points WYS $75, it made the actual price just over $3 per pound,

Walmart sells similar frozen chicken breasts and the packaging for these says "cook from frozen". I was actually thinking about the mess it would create after thawing it out, but some meats cook better frozen if they are already in that state.

But, no need to worry about that with the current special.

There was one package left of chicken at Rocco's No Frills in Toronto at 8pm and someone grabbed it 10 seconds before I got to it.
Usually that store is stocked when these sales happen and the last time it was $2 a lb, the sale continued into the next week and eventually had 30% off stickers on them at one point.
They still have the $3 lean ground beef sale from the previous week available.
