Special Reserve - Chicken raised in the old fashioned way.

Quite unlike any other Chicken

The Special Reserve is a truly Free Range Chicken which is slow grown and fed on a natural diet - with a rich flavour - quite unlike any other Chicken. 

Grown to full maturity

Special Reserve Chickens are grown to full maturity of 70-80 days - using a slow growing breed of Chicken carefully selected for its ability to thrive outdoors, and live for almost twice as long as commercial Chickens.

Amazing eating quality

This gives them a longer and happier life scratching around in the fields and this is reflected in the amazing eating quality of the bird.

Straight from the field

The diet contains Maize, but also Whole Oats straight from the field - and also whole Apples fed separately.

Stays moist during cooking

You should see a small fat layer beneath the skin, which is a very stable fat put down mainly by the Whole Oats. This will help this extra special Chicken stay moist during cooking and not just disappear into the pan

A combination of the best of the old, with the best of the new.  Simply incredible in taste and texture, quite unlike any other.

Best oven-roasted - or can be pot-roasted

Truly Free Range Premium Quality Poultry - raised in the old fashioned way.

Do have a look at our How to Cook/Related Recipes Tab for some great ways to prepare your Label Anglais Special Reserve Chicken

Store in fridge at 1ºc and cook within 2 days of receipt - If freezing - do so on the day of receipt

During Covid-19 - your Chicken may occasionally be delivered Frozen - but can be refrozen on receipt

Roasting

All Poultry must be cooked to internal temperature of no less than 70°c at the coldest point i.e. the thickest part of the joint. At 70°c the meat will still be moist and succulent - but can be cooked longer if you like your Poultry a little more done - but not over a 100°c 

Casseroling and Stewing

Whole Chickens can be roasted in the oven or pot roasted in a casserole dish with a lid on - but you can also ask us to cut it up for you in the delivery notes for stews, curries, and casseroles

Preheat the oven to 190°c / 375°f Gas Mark 5.
