Why you should buy them:
“According to Mintel, the UK poultry market is expected to grow by 17 per cent to £3.3bn between 2010 and 2015, with this figure largely reflecting chicken,” said Martin Ward, brand manager for Country Range.
“Our succulent new chicken products give caterers so much scope to maximise the potential of this popular white meat and include everything from strips for stir-fries and Tex-Mex dishes to steam cooked fillets for chicken burgers, the fourth favourite dish eaten out of home in the UK."
