    Frozen Chicken vs Fresh

    Where I live 1KG Fresh Boneless Chicken Thighs cost £9 whereas 1KG Frozen Boneless Chicken Thighs cost around £5.

    Why is frozen much cheaper? Is there any difference in taste? I can also see difference is calories & proteins when comparing fresh/ frozen, why is that if its the same type of chicken?

    Cheaper chicken often contains more injected water. Frozen chicken is usually the cheaper stuff compared to fresh.

    If the total calories per unit weight (raw) is lower in the frozen, you'll know this is the case. The water usually comes out when cooking.

    Okay that makes sense... Would you suggest sticking with fresh then if not on a budget?

    I do but only because it usually tastes better and you can (for example) fry it without a load of water coming out and turning into a boil instead of a fry.
