Product Description

Ocado British Free Range Medium Whole Chicken.

Free Range birds have the freedom to forage outside and peck at the ground. Their houses are designed with windows to allow in natural light and have straw bales, pecking objects and perches to promote natural behaviour.

This is an Ocado product. Like everything in our range, it's good quality, sensibly priced and, of course, responsibly sourced.

Product Information

Preheat oven. Place chicken in a roasting tin and brush skin with oil. Roast for 45 mins per kg plus 20 mins, basting occasionally. Allow to stand for 10 mins before carving. If stuffing the chicken, stuff the neck and weigh the chicken to calculate the correct cooking time.

Looks sickly and short shelf life.

We had the same problem as the last reviewer in the short shelf life. It was delivered on the last slot Tuesday night and had a due date of Friday. We had planned to cook it on Saturday so not impressed. Looked very sickly anyway to start with so not taking the risk, Disappointing.

short shelf life

I can't comment on the quality of the bird as it's not been eaten yet. It was delivered today, Wednesday. It was due to be cooked on Saturday but it's use-by date is Friday. I don't want to take any chances with eating after it's use-by date.

"Well done Ocado"

Tried this for the first time and was very impressed with the quality of this Chicken. We enjoyed this mid week and had no problem with dates. My last two purchases of Oraganic/Free Range whole chickens have been with a relatively new supplier to Ocado, both dry of taste, rather expensive and not as good as this Ocado own brand chicken. Thank you Ocado for a good quality bird at a good price, as a Widow with two grown up Sons I want quality and value for money, this you have given me, cannot fault the flavour of this chicken. Will be adding another of these chickens to my basket this week. Try for yourselves.

Mis-leading size and date too close to expiry.

"Typical size" is mis-leading. Please alter labelling to minimum size. I wanted a 1.6kg bird and got a replacement which was 1.3kg when typical size was 1.55kg. This is unhelpful as not enough for the Sunday roast. Please improve your labelling. Expiry date too close also. Not appetising.

This easy Sunday roast, glazed in honey, is so delicious it doesn't need any extra accompaniments and everything is cooked in one pan.

Just bring this dish to the table and let everyone help themselves. Afterwards, there's less washing up. What's not to like about this one-pot meal?

Alfred Prasad's Pepper Chicken

Alfred Prasad's Pepper Chicken

A one-pot chicken curry dish which is given its unique flavour by a sprinkling of crushed peppercorns, cardamom pods and a ginger/garlic paste. If you don't want to use chicken on the bone, use skinned pieces of chicken breast, which will also speed up this recipe considerably.
