"Make the most of your roast with our range of whole chickens, perfect for a

family feast and midweek meals made from tasty leftovers. Lean chicken breast

works in salads and stir fry while tasty thighs and drums sizzle in barbecues,

casseroles or curries. Are you in the mood for some comfort food? Our Real Food

recipe for Normandy pot roast packs a punch with apples, a lug of cider and

crème fraiche for a wonderfully creamy finish.

Raw chicken should always be kept at the bottom of the fridge (in its original

packaging or a sealed container) and there is no need to wash it before


Tesco chickens are reared by British farmers who are passionate about welfare

and meet Red Tractor standards as well as our own stringent Agricultural

Requirements. Our chickens are reared in houses with natural daylight and bales

as studies have shown this type of enrichment improves the activity and

wellbeing of the birds."
