There’s nothing better than a plump, juicy roast Castlemead chicken for your Sunday roast.

Our fresh mixed chicken selection offers great value for money with a small variety of different free-range options.

The chickens are looked after by a dedicated team, with fresh bedding and constant access to food and water providing the best welfare standards possible.

From morning to nightfall the chickens are free to explore the fields surrounding their houses, incorporating natural goodness into their diets to compliment the locally grown and milled cereals they are fed. At night they retire to their houses for protection from the fox and a good night’s sleep.

At Castlemead their chickens are allowed to grow in their own time making their meat succulent, firm and rich in flavor.

Moved at night to reduce the birds stress levels, the chickens are processed onsite and hand finished for that farm to fork taste.

 

There’s nothing more comforting than a delicious home cooked roast; here are our top tips for cooking the perfect roast chicken.

Set your oven to 190c/170c fan/gas 5.

Cooking: Once in the oven, leave your chicken undisturbed for approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes.

TOP TIPS:
– Use a shelf in the middle of the oven without anything above it.
– Season your chicken all over and rub with butter.
–  To check your chicken is cooked, pierce the thigh with a skewer. If the juices run clear, it is done.
– Remove the chicken from the roasting pan and leave to rest for 15-20 minutes.

Enjoy!
