Product Description

Our free range chickens are reared exclusively for Waitrose on small, family farms in Northern Ireland. By day they are free to roam in open pastures and exhibit their natural behaviour. By night, they are protected in purpose built sheds and are fed a natural, cereal based diet.
We're always looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact which is why we're now using new packaging on a selection of our fresh poultry. It reduces the amount of plastic by more than 50% and gives you the same outstanding quality product, with benefits that include:
Reduces waste
Less bulky
Easier to store

tiny chicken

Wish if read the reviews first. Bought it for dinner with a friend and it was embarrassing! If that's the medium then the small must look barely hatched

Rating: 1 star out of 5

weight range is too wide

I have had this before and most times it's about 1.3kg but this time it was 1kg exactly and that is not a MEDIUM chicken, it is a small chicken, they say between 1kg and 1.6kg so you either get a tiny one or a big one, it's just pot luck.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

A weekly favourite, but small at the moment

This is always in my weekly shopping basket and I prefer it so much more than other high street store chickens, which are swimming in fat when you take them out of the oven. However, the last few weeks the chickens have become smaller and the sell by dates reduced. Mine usually last 5 or 6 days, but I was caught out this week as it only lasted 2 days and I'm cooking it a day past its sell by date.

Rating: 3 star out of 5

very small for a medium chicken

Just too small to go around more than 2 slightly hungry adults

Rating: 4 star out of 5

good chicken, good value

Received a 1.3kg bird. Cooked it in milk. Served 4 well. Made stuck from carcass. Served four again. Good tasty chicken.

This is a very appealing way to cook chicken, whether you serve it up hot or leave it to cool and make it part of a picnic. There are no hard and fast rules about the herbs – just use what you’ve got and what you like. You can cook the chicken in the oven, on a hot barbecue or in a chargrill pan.
