How to Cook an Organic Boneless Chicken

Follow along our recipe below to create your perfect, crispy and mouth watering Boneless Chicken.

  • Serves: 4
  • Prepare: 5 Minutes
  • Cook: 1 Hour
  • Difficulty: easy

Ingredients

Method

  1. Allow your prized bird to rest at room temperature for an hour or so. 2. Preheat your oven to 180°C
  2. Place your bird in a deep bottomed roasting tray and rub all over with salt and pepper. Scatter your bay leaves over the top and wrap in two layers of foil
  3. Roast for 60 minutes per kg
  4. Everyone loves crispy skin, so remove your layers of foil for the last 20 minutes of roasting time
  5. If you have a meat thermometer, you are aiming for an internal heat of 74°C at its thickest part
  6. Rest under two more layers of foil for at least 20 minutes
  7. Whilst resting, pour the juices from your roasting tray into a saucepan and reduce over a high heat to make the most delectable jus. Its consistency is down to personal preference however we like to reduce it enough until it sticks to the back of a spoon. Adding a nob of butter at the very end will help it become shiny

Frequently asked questions

  • In the UK, we now eat more chicken than any other meat. Which means the production of chicken has become more and more industrialised to keep up with demand. We rear our chickens in a free-range, organic environment and to the highest welfare standards. That means the birds have the freedom to roam outdoors during the day, with the shelter and safety of houses at night and in bad weather. We source our chicks from an organic breeding flock meaning they are certified from birth.

  • When choosing any meat to purchase, it is worth carrying out some research. There are a number of studies that suggest organic chicken is a healthier option, containing less saturated fat and higher in omega- 3 fatty acids, which are good for your heart. There are also several other reasons why choosing organic chicken is a good idea. They range from the contribution of organic farming to climate change, animal welfare and the use of pesticides and medicines used in the farming of conventional chickens, organic birds are only given antibiotics if absolutely necessary, rather than routinely, as they are in lower welfare systems to prevent spread of disease.

  • Organic chicken has been reared in accordance to a set of organic high-welfare standards. These organic standards cover not just the bird’s housing, the amount of space they have and the way they are treated, but also what they are fed, how they are transported and eventually slaughtered. At Coombe Farm Organic, our slow-grown Hubbard 57 chickens are 100% organic. Under the current Soil Association standards, chicks can be taken from a conventional system providing they are less than 3 years old and reared organically to 70 days. We wanted to go one step further to stick to our ethos in supporting other organic producers, so we source our chicks from an organic breeding flock meaning they are certified from birth. We never use antibiotics on our chickens because our organic farming system provides a natural environment for our birds to thrive without the need for preventative medication: room to roam, a naturally foraged balanced diet, clean water and high hygiene standards.
