This Great Taste Award winning chicken is some of the finest poultry available in the British market, and is the culmination of efforts to improve both welfare and the quality of the meat. English Label was inspired by the French 'Label Rouge,' first begun in 1965 as French farmers reacted to the changing nature of farming, determined not to surrender to industrial techniques. This famous standard means a chicken is raised for 80 days, is oat-fed, and has the freedom to exhibit natural behaviours. The result is quite simply better meat, with the succulence and flavour that intensive systems just cannot match.

Please note that our English Label Chickens come with giblets.

Shelf life: minimum 3 days.

How to cook english label chicken

The English Label is a familiar sight in many of the leading restaurants across the UK. This is a roasted chicken that always goes down well with its winning combination of white and brown meat and crisp skin. You can get a lot from one chicken. Serve it first roasted, pick off any remaining meat and use for salads, pack lunch sandwiches, risotto, then boil up the carcass with any vegetables or herbs to make a stock for soup.

Whole Chicken

Our free range chicken is great taste award-winning and from small farms that rear their chickens slowly. Fed a nutritious, natural and varied diet, these tasty chickens enjoy a life on lush pastures and are left to roam and forage. The result of this welfare rich life is wholesome, succulent and delicious chicken that tastes like chicken should.

We use breeds of chicken that are suited to the outdoor environment in which they are raised. For our free range chicken we use high welfare systems coupled with traditional farming techniques so that our birds plump up gradually.
