Thriftalicious: Price per kilo for protein

I’m currently trying to make our grocery budget stretch a bit further (who isn’t?) – and so decided to work out the price per kilo of various forms of protein. I’ve done that – and thought that it might be of use. Prices are from http://www.mysupermarket.co.uk – Tesco, as of this evening.

I was a bit surprised that buying a whole Tesco Finest chicken was the same price per kg as buying chicken thighs – and both of those options much cheaper than most other meats. Chicken it is then! ….
