    The Free Range Cockerel

    Posted by Mrs Diana Ivy Longshaw on 16th Jan 2024

    Absolutely fantastic flavour. Lots of meat and very succulent. A Cockerel is always better than a small Turkey and more succulent. With a longer life than a chicken it comes up trumps.

    Delivery was flawless. Packaging was great and very reusable. It smelled quite strongly when it came out of the packaging but now I realise that is just how real meat smells. It made a beautiful and incredibly tasty Xmas centrepiece and even better stock on Boxing Day. Will repeat. Far better than turkey!

    Moist and tasty

1. Remove the chicken from the fridge 30 minutes before cooking.
2. Preheat the oven to 200C (180C Fan)
3. Season the chicken and put in a preheated tray for 20 mins.
4. Then reduce the temp down to 180C (160C Fan), and cook for a further 30 minutes per kg.
5. Check that the juices run clear at the end of time using a skewer to the thickest part of the thigh.
6. If the juices are not clear, cook for a further 10 minutes.
7. When cooked remove and rest for at least 15 minutes.
