Quality of Costco Chicken Breasts Recently? (Ont.)

Hi there,

I seemingly am not learning from my mistakes here and can no longer chalk it up to bad luck. What is with the Costco Chicken Breasts recently (i'd say over the last 6-8 months). Every time I buy one of those 10 packs (the last 3-4 times) the quality is absolutely horrendous - it's tough/chewy, uncuttable, and the texture of it makes it inedible. Speaking with my friends, I don't think I'm the only one.

Has Costco changed their chicken supplier in Ontario? Is there another place to get delicious + affordable chicken?

Cheers & Happy Sunday.

It isn't just Costco (we don't have a membership). It doesn't matter the type of chicken you buy - organic, chicken that is free from antibiotics (I don't mean the freefrom from Loblaws - it is often grey despite the best before date of a week), or "regular" chicken. Some times the chicken is good, often now it is as you described.

ya it's not great but

sounds like you have no idea how to cook also. you can tenderize meat by pounding it with a mallet before cooking and cutting into smaller strips and marinating

I'd love for someone without an Infowars sticker to test this.
Do you not have anything else to do rather than argue with strangers on the internet
Nope. That's why I'm on the internet arguing with strangers. If I had anything better to do I'd probably be doing it.

First thing I noticed was the infowars fridge sticker. The second was the t-shirt... Just screams credibility doesn't it.
