Is eating chicken everyday going to be expensive?

Im thinking of eating less carbs and would that be too expensive for a uni student.

Depends on your budget. Maybe buy it when it’s on discount in a larger amount than one meal and freeze it if you have the space?

I mostly buy it on sale and even when it’s expensive so live off pasta and noodles mostly but yeah.

you can make it cheaper by going to the butchers and buying the cheaper cuts of chicken (e.g., niblets) and as mentioned above freeze it

you can find some cheap chicken these days, not sure about the quality of that meat
Depends where you buy it from. I buy 300g* of chicken for £2.60 a time in Tesco. That should be perfectly doable on a student budget.

*approx 85g is considered a serving.
