[No Frills] Maple Lodge 1lb Lean ground chicken (Halal available) NoFrills only $1

Went to nofrills and they had a lot of these frozen lean ground chicken. Maple Lodge brand 1 pound halal and regular packs. Good price since it's only $1 per pound. Went to Vito's nofrills, Keele.

I got some and it was fine. Of course it isn't like normal ground chicken since it's in a tube sorta thing but it is like paste. I still used it perfectly fine and when it's cooked it's exactly the same as any other ground chicken. Also don't know why yours was watery cause mine never was.

Bought couple of them for dog food.

Let's just say my dog didn't think it was chicken.

Can someone post the ingredients? If it's any added byproducts I would steer clear.

Bought as well. Would not buy again. Its a really bad consistency raw, like slurry. It cooks up relatively normal if you just fry up the lot, but don't expect to form burgers out of it or anything. Its gross really. I'd avoid it, wish I had. Its nothing like the ground chicken you'd be familiar with from the grocery store. Its like paste. Yuck.

I've been able to make burgers and meatballs with these, fyi I bought the Halal ones, not sure if that makes a difference though

Very sticky, I bought 5 of them expecting them to be like the 4 for $10 at food basics. I was wrong

Tried it once and it was absolutely horrible. It was like eating paste. I will never experiment with meat in a tube again.

The consistency is a little unusual but the taste is good and I've had no problem forming it into burgers. It would work even better formed into a chicken (meat) loaf...

Works for spaghetti and stuff. Cheap and worth it

I personally don't find them horrible, but when you're a university student on a budget, there's not much you won't eat. It does look horrid when you're cooking it, but it's always come out looking just like fresh ground meats. For $1.00, I'll probably be picking some more up for the freezer

Exactly, if you're all picky and stuff then don't buy $1 "ground" chicken, go and buy the more expensive ones. In the end it's still just chicken. Better than what they make wieners, sausages and bacon out of.

Ground chicken is one of the worst tasting meats out there to begin with (rather have ground turkey, ground pork, fake/veggie ground beef, et al before ground chicken). I have no idea why people use this stuff...I mean even if you don't eat beef, eat something other than ground chicken!!!

However this sounds even worse than just regular ground chicken, so good luck guys lol.
