How can I tell if I bought some bad chicken??

MrsD | May 20, 2007 08:42 PM

This is the second time this is happened to me with buying chicken from the grocery store, The first occasion was when I bought some incredibly cheap chicken breasts from Stater Brothers and they were huge mutant sized chicken breasts. When I got them home they just didn't taste right and I threw them away. The second time was last week when I bought some cheap chicken tenders from Ralphs. I cooked them and they were awful. They tasted gummy and disgusting. What is the rule of thumb for knowing if chicken is freshor not? I don't want to keep buying chicken on sale only to have it taste disgusting when I cook it.
