Things to note

  • Chicken still remains the most affordable protein source
  • 2KG packs are cheaper per KG than 1KG packs, this trend holders the more you buy the more you save
  • Don’t buy whole birds, they are inexplicably expensive per KG than portions
  • Sometimes chicken offals can be more expensive than the actual portions from other brands, Chicken feet are an example, they cost the same as Baba John’s portions.
  • Shop means the shop’s own branded/unbranded chicken
  • Branded chicken is cheaper than the shop’s own chicken
