Our free range whole chickens are fabulously fresh and create a wonderful roast dinner.

One of the most popular roast dinner meat choices is good old chicken, and our free-range whole chickens are reared in a natural environment until they are mature, which brings out the best, juiciest flavour. Ideally cook this 1.6kg whole free-range chicken from fresh. You can cook it whole, roasting in the oven for the perfect roast dinner for you and your loved ones. Why not season it with lemon and herbs and serve with your favourite vegetables, gravy and all the trimmings for the perfect roast. You can also poach the whole free-range chicken which will allow the chicken to fall off the bone, perfect for adding to salads or a homemade broth. If you’re handy in the kitchen, you may want to break the whole chicken down into cuts yourself for a selection of meals, utilising the carcass for stock.

Cooking Instructions

To Oven Cook: Preheat the oven to 190° for 15 minutes. Remove all packaging and season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place the chicken in a roasting tin on the middle shelf of the oven. Cook for 1 hour 30 mins. During Cooking: Baste the chicken with the cooking juices. After cooking: Ensure the chicken is thoroughly cooked, the juices run clear and there is no pink meat. Allow to stand for 10 minutes before carving. If you have a probe thermometer you want the core temperature to be 73°. All ovens and their temperatures vary, please adjust accordingly as the above is a guide only
