Organic Whole Chicken

Fantastic, fuss-free and always a winner

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 and giblets: perfect for creating light broths or tasty stocks and gravies. Need a recipe? let us help you.

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 Coombe Farm Organic, animal welfare and top-grade products are both important to us. So we sell only organic, free-range chicken from birds that have had the liberty to roam, forage and roost according to their natural instincts. An active life keeps our chickens healthy and results in richly flavoured meat with well-defined texture.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £3.95.

  • Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.

    We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.

    It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.

  • The poultry we sell has been organically reared they are free-range in smaller flocks than other birds, when the animal is ready it is slaughtered and butchered on the farm it was reared on so not to overstress the birds.

    You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

For ultimate ease, remove your chicken from the fridge and allow it to come to room temperature. Pat the skin dry and liberally season with salt and pepper. Put into an oven preheated to 180˚C for 20 minutes to start the skin crisping, then reduce to 160˚C. A 1.4kg bird will take about an hour and a half in total, but start testing it a little bit earlier. 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. Let your chicken rest (wrapped in foil to keep it warm) for at least twenty minutes before serving. That'll give it a chance to reabsorb all the juices, making it beautifully succulent.
