Heritage Breed Free Range Whole Chicken
Loose Birds X Farmison & Co
Shelf Life: Min. 5 Days
Our Heritage Breed Free Range Chicken is a collaboration between Loose Birds X Farmison & Co. Our Heritage breeds have been long in development with our partners at Loose Birds, and have never been done before. It's the best chicken we've ever tasted, with it's savoury, deep and delicate gamey flavours; plus their carcass, especially with their feet left on for flavour, makes for a wonderful chicken broth. These special birds have been reared for over 120 days on the Ryedale hills of North Yorkshire.
Note: Our Heritage Breed Birds are sold with their feet left on.
This chicken has been game hung for 7 days; this is done to relax the flesh of the chicken and develop the flavour by allowing the natural enzymes in the meat to break down. Hanging chicken is a traditional, artisan technique but it's very seldom seen these days due to the time it takes and pressure from supermarkets for commercial birds. Once these game hung birds have been roasted, the skin comes crisp & naturally darkens; much more so than commercials birds.
This Heritage Breed chicken is best slow cooked and is beautiful when served with a seasonal salad dressed in classic mustard vinaigrette & french fries. The carcass, especially with it's feet left on for flavour, makes for a wonderful chicken broth.
