The Price of Chicken
oes anyone understand why there is such great variance in the price of chicken breasts? It used to be €8.99 per kilo on expensive days, but then it moved up to €9.99 on expensive days, and now it routinely gets up to €10.99 per kilo. When I see it for €6.99, like it was today, I feel compelled to get in on the deal regardless of my shopping list and meal plans. But it sucks when you want to have chicken and it turns out to be €10.99. (Still preferable to the days they've run out of it entirely...) Sometimes you can get around it by buying the schnitzel-ified chicken pieces for less per kilo. Meat is just expensive - we've been digging deeper into our bean repertoire!
Where do you get chicken, and what's the price?
