Label Rouge Corn-Fed 81-day Chicken - TUESDAY & SATURDAY DELIVERY ONLY
PLEASE NOTE: We can only deliver these birds on Tuesdays and Saturdays . Please do not order for any other day, as we will not be able to send them to you.
Since our story began, we have been travelling to Rungis Market in Paris once a week to source the finest French poultry whilst delivering steak to restaurants. Tim made this decision many years ago due to the unparalleled welfare standards in French poultry farms. Established in 1965, Marie Hot was the first Label Rouge brand in France and remains the benchmark for a deliciously flavoured bird. Free to come and go as they please in their forest surroundings, the chickens develop strong muscles (just like our 100 Day Chickens). They are fed on a 100% vegetable and locally grown cereal diet, including corn, alfalfa and soy. This is in addition to the insects and foliage they graze on the land. These tasty birds are approx. 1.7kg.
Available for delivery:
Tuesday & Saturday
Take your chicken out of the fridge an hour before cooking - the bigger the bird the more time it needs to come to room temperature. Remember, meat is a muscle and needs to relax before it is cooked.
If roasting your chicken, remember a stuffed bird will need more time to cook than an unstuffed bird. As a rule, an unstuffed chicken cooked at 180°C (fan oven), will need 20 minutes, plus 40 minutes per kilogram of cooking time.
Your chicken will be cooked through when a thermometer inserted at the thickest part of the thigh reads 75°C
Please remove all paper and place them on a plate in the fridge away from cooked items so that air can circulate properly round the meat. Please see label for shelf life.
