Celtic Cockerell was beyond our wildest dreams. The succulent taste was extraordinary. I cooked the bird upside-down to start with and the breast was dripping with melt in the mouth meat. We were left with an enormous amount of wonderful tasting meat for another at least 3 more meals for 2. I more than highly recommend this bird and can't wait to try the hen to. Thank you Lyons Hill
Sausages a bit spicy for my wife! Chicken 🍗 Sunday week to celebrate my birthday on the 10th!
Have left it until now to review, as we've only just cooked the hen which we'd had in the freezer since eating the cockerel for Christmas dinner. I'd been a little concerned that they were arriving a week before Christmas Day, but James's instructions re storing/defrosting etc all worked perfectly (helpful that chickens don't need as much freezer space as turkey!) As expected, the meat on both birds was slightly tougher than a 'normal' chicken but so superior in flavour. Absolutely delicious - a real treat! They made wonderful stock too. Giblets only with the cockerel though - what happens to the hen's?
We were on our own this year, along with everyone else and decided to try these after reading an article in The Times. Given the conditions the delivery was a bit torturous but did a sterling job of cajoling Parcel Force to deliver on time. We cooked it as instructed and I'd have to say it was fantastic. The good new is we still have one in the freezer for later in the year. A big thankyou to James and the team at Lyons Hill Farm.
Excellent products, we shall buy again soot
After seeing an article I thought I’d give the pair of hen and cock a try. I had the cockerel last night. As suggested input butter, thyme, garlic, lemon zest under the skin and roasted for the given time. The flavour is more than just the taste of a good free range chicken. Tender, moist and loads of meat - absolutely delicious. When any produce is raised well, you don’t need to mess with it when preparing it.
Thank you and good luck for 2021.
