How to cook

A nicely roasted chicken 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. Be sure to read out recipe tips for serving suggestions and cooking times.
