All our organic chicken is sourced from Wood Green Farm, Cullompton, where Chris Labdon rears his chicken flocks with an award-winning focus on their welfare. The Good Chicken Award from Compassion in World Farming recognised Chris’ decisions to create a better quality of life for his chickens. His birds live in low-density colonies with plenty of space to roam freely, as well as time to grow and develop more slowly. Since the chickens grow at a more natural rate, their muscles can develop properly too, giving each breast, thigh and wing a rich flavour.
Chicken should be kept refrigerated, wrapped and away from other foods, in the bottom of the fridge. Chicken can be frozen, but should be thoroughly defrosted before cooking. Our meat and poultry is vac-packed, which keeps the packaging to a minimum. Upon opening, vac-packed meat can sometimes have a strong smell and be darker in colour, but don't worry, remove the plastic & let the meat rest for 10-15 minutes & the odour will disappear and the colour will return to normal! Slow cooking really brings out the flavour of chicken thighs - after browning the meat first in a hot frying pan with 2 tablespoons of oil, just pop the thighs into a casserole dish and add garlic, wine, stock, spices, herbs or chopped tomatoes, then cook in the oven at 190C/374F/gas 5 for about 35 minutes. Make sure the juices run clear when you pierce the meat with a skewer and that there is no pinkiness. Cooked chicken should not be reheated.
