Cheap Kosher chicken in Brooklyn?

kosherman613 Jan 4, 2011 10:49 AM

Hi, I will be in the brooklyn area soon and I know that the price on chicken cutlets in the area can't be beat. Anyone know of any kosher stores that have the best prices for chicken cutlets? (if you know the price per pound that would be a plus!)

    I dont know prices, but I have found looking at this website helpful as it takes some of the major stores and puts in their weekly ads:

      Shlomi Glatt (on Coney Island Ave btwn T&U) has thin sliced chicken cutlets for $3.99/lb. Regular chicken cutlets (not thin, but cleaned) are $3.49/lb.

      Pic n Pay sometimes has chicken cutlets in a family pack for $2.99/lb. They are not cleaned or sliced thin.

      Moisha's and KRM sometimes have chicken cutlets (regular or thin) on sale as family packs. They both advertise (along with Pic n Pay) on the website marissaj mentioned below.

        FYI - the hechsher at Pic'n'Pay is not universally accepted. I have never looked into this myself (not being in Brooklyn much), and might well buy from there if I did, but you might want to check first.

          I don't buy at Pic N Pay because it's filthy and I don't like the quality, but I'm tired of people saying the Hechsher is no good without any back up. The place has been open for over 20 years and is right in the middle of a very frum area and is always busy which has always made me doubt these "bad" hechsher claims.

            Thanks both gilaB and pitagirl for the info, if I go to pic n pay I will look into the issues...but let's get back to the main question: where is there good priced chicken in the brooklyn area?

              I can't recall the exact price but Goldberg's is pretty cheap

            The question was regarding inexpensive chicken cutlets. I don't like the place either, and the hechsher is for everyone to look into on their own. As with any butcher/restaurant/caterer, it's up to the individual what to do.

            I live in Brooklyn and I know it's a place where many many people buy their chicken. Just putting it out there.
