Organic Whole Chicken

Our chicken offers crispy skin with succulent breast and flavoursome brown meat! Gold winner at the Taste of the West Awards 2023

Whether you're keeping things simple or spicing them up with inventive flavours, a good, old-fashioned roast chicken will always satisfy. Combining crispy skin with succulent breast and flavoursome brown meat, there's plenty going on in a roast chicken to appeal to everyone's tastes. The fact that it's not hard to cook, but the results are second to none makes this a real win-win for Sunday lunch. Tempting leftovers are an added bonus, as are the carcass: perfect for creating light broths or tasty stocks and gravies. Need a recipe? let us help you. 

Our Hubbard 57 chickens are 100% organic and slow-grown for 70 days, as we believe this is better for our birds, and produces the delicious, flavoursome meat that you can try for yourself. We say a very firm no thank you, not ever, to factory farmed birds; they have the freedom to roam outdoors during the day, with the shelter and safety of houses at night and in bad weather.

As a nation, we've grown used to eating a lot of chicken. It's tasty, lean and versatile so it's easy to understand why it's so popular. Unfortunately, popularity has encouraged intensive farming practices that are less than ideal for the birds and can result in low-quality meat for the consumer. At The Organic Butchery, we rear our chickens in a free-range, organic environment and to the highest welfare standards set out by the Soil Association. That means the birds have the freedom to roam outdoors during the day where they can forage, scratch and follow their natural instincts, with the shelter and safety of houses at night and in bad weather.

  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C /Gas 6/ fan 180°C. First things first, remove your chicken from the fridge 30 minutes before cooking so it can get to room temperature (this ensures it'll cook evenly all over).
  2. Pat the skin dry with kitchen paper or a towel. Rub the skin on the breast and legs of the chicken with some olive oil or butter and season well with salt and pepper.
  3. Sit the bird in a roating tin slightly bigger than the chicken - if you're after that deliciously crispy skin then hold off covering with tin foil.
  4. Cook your chicken for 45 minutes per kg plus an extra 20 minutes, baste 2-3 times throughout cooking by drizzling some of the fat over the bird. You'll know it's ready when the juices in the thickest parts of the meat run clear when pierced with a skewer or when the legs readily pull away from the body.
  5. Let your chicken rest (wrapped in foil to keep it warm) for 30 minutes before serving. That'll give it a chance to reabsorb all the juices, making it beautifully succulent.
