Free Range Pasture-Raised Whole Chicken

Pasture-Raised Chickens live outside on grass 24/7, enabling them to express all of their natural behaviours — foraging for bugs, insects, worms and as much grass as they can eat, as well as having access to a certified organic feed.  Pasture-Raised means fresh air, sun on their backs and a natural diet. And, for us, pasture-raised means clean, healthy, nutritious meat that tastes like no other chicken you've tasted before. Our chickens have a lovely covering of fat, making them perfect for roasting, they self-baste in the oven for a lovely, succulent chicken. Perfect for a Sunday Roast.

How to cook a whole chicken

​Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. While your oven is heating up cover your chicken with a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Once your oven is up to temperature, place your chicken in the centre of the oven and leave for around 20-25 minutes, or until the skin has turned golden brown. Once the skin has turned golden brown, turn the oven down to 175 degrees Celsius and cook for a further 25 minutes for every 500g of weight.

How to defrost a whole chicken

Individual cuts of meat such as chicken breast or thighs can be thawed quickly by placing them in a bowl of cool water, still in their packaging, for around 15-20 minutes. For whole birds or whole joints of meat, this may take longer. Larger joints and whole chickens are best left overnight in the fridge to thaw out, or on the kitchen worktop at room temperature.
