Very tasty

I have roasted this chicken about 2 hours in the oven and used the left overs to make a thai green curry. Both meals were really tasty. The chicken was tasteful, juicy and and the meat fell out the bones. Loved it!

Tasty but hardly any breast meat

I haven't ordered this product for a while so I decided to have a change. However, whilst the chicken itself was very tasty and cooked well, there was hardly any breast meat on this. As a previous reviewer said, normally there is enough for another meal on the chickens I buy around this size, but I don't think I will get another meal out of it. The legs were quite chunky though, strange.

Too small

I should've read the other reviews, I was expecting a 1.3 kg chicken and sure enough it was just over 1 kg... made a decent meal for 2 on Sunday but there was barely any left for the following day, not good value and Ocado should be clearer about average weights and sizes... On the plus side I got a refund after complaining it was not what I expected - so thanks Ocado but please be clearer!!

Teeny weeny chicken

As per all the other reviews - a tiny little bird delivered which I have had to put in the freezer and go and get a bigger one at the local supermarket. Why bother having the small category, they can't come much smaller than this without being a poussin!! I'm sure it tastes good but if I order a medium chicken with average 1.3kg size, that's what I expect

Not medium unless you're an umpa lumpa

Agree with other recent reviewers. The last couple of times I have purchased this chicken it has weighed much less than the advertised 1.3 kg, more like 1kg. Will not be buying again until this issue is addressed as so unreliable. Shame as the chicken itself is nice.


My Herby Barbecued Chicken

My Herby Barbecued 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. Having said that, I think combining one or two ‘lighter’ herbs, such as parsley and chervil, with a smaller quantity of a stronger leaf, such as thyme, marjoram, oregano or tarragon, is a good way to go. You can cook the chicken in the oven, but I like it best over a hot barbecue or in a chargrill pan.
