Packington Free Range whole chicken, apx 1.8kg.

We still remember how chicken used to taste when we were kids, and it’s a standard we’re committed to bringing back!

This is how chicken used to taste before intensive farming introduced breeds with no flavour. It’s perfect centrepiece for Sunday lunch or family dinner. Check out our recipes for inspiration.

Great Taste Judges Comments 2023
GT 2-Star Award

This is a glorious roast chicken with real richness. The skin is golden and crisp, and the leg meat in particular is gorgeously moist and full of flavour. The breast meat is tender and has a firm texture that would be wonderful smothered in gravy. A real treat of a roast.

This is a beautifully presented chicken. The flavour of this chicken is rich, full and the judges could tell this chicken has had a good life, from both the texture and flavour depth.

This is a beautifully roast chicken that is juicy and deeply flavoured with a clean finish. This is delicious and would grace any table happily.
