These chickens used to be lovely but the last 3 I have had have been truly awful. There was not a lot of meat on it, just lots of sinew, the smell when I took it out of the packet was not great and I cooked it the day it was delivered. Needless to say, it was a quick dash to the chippy for dinner and I wouldnt even feed it to the dogs!

Best roast chicken I've ever cooked!

Cooked this on Saturday and it was gorgeous; good flavour, tender and moist. I had covered it with smoked bacon, popped a quartered onion in the cavity and covered with silver foil. I did cook it at a slightly lower temp and for a bit longer than the cooking instructions. Made a gravy from juices in the pan and some red wine - good enough to eat with a spoon!

Get it out of the packaging and it's wonderful!

Having read several reviews about this product that talked about it stinking when it came out of the package, I opened it as soon as it arrived. There was a very faint whiff for about a second, but as soon as I washed it, patted it dry and covered it with foil, it kept in the fridge perfectly for three days before I cooked it. The chicken was delicious. It's obvious that the packaging is wrong. A raw chicken rattling around in a hard plastic case is a perfect breeding ground for all sorts of nasties. Most people don't need their chicken in a gift box, so change the packaging!

Tzimmes Chicken

Tzimmes Chicken

A tasty family meal that everyone will enjoy. This Tzimmes chicken combines the traditional ingredients in one pot. The word 'tzimmes' means to make a fuss over someone or something. It is the sense of the word that gives this dish its name, a lot of things mixed together. The classic Tzimmes is an eastern European recipe for honey baked carrots. In Yiddish the word "meren" means carrots and to increase. On Rosh Hashonah (Jewish New Year) we often use carrots as they symbolize our hope that we increase our good deeds in the coming year. Another reason for eating them is that the sliced carrots look like golden coins – we wish that our pockets should never be empty in the year to come! Tzimmes recipes vary considerably but all of them are sweet and contain the vital ingredient of carrots.

If you have a jar of preserved lemons in the cupboard, chop up a lemon and add it to the sauce with a little more honey before reducing. It will give the dish a different dimension.
