How to prepare

Leg meat is arguably tastier than breast meat but requires more cooking time to tenderize. Season, oil and roast at 200˚C/Gas 6 for 15-20 mins, until the skin has started to colour nicely. Drop the heat to 180˚C/Gas 4 and cook for a further 30 mins, at least. They like a bit of water, wine or stock in the tray to help them along, and are cooked when the meat easily separates from the bone. You can grill or BBQ them in slightly less time: cut deep slashes into the flesh to help the heat penetrate, then cook for 30-40 mins on a moderate heat, nothing too fierce.

Storage

Keep refrigerated below 5°C. Once opened, use immediately for best quality. If not required immediately freeze as soon as possible and always within the use by date. Once frozen use within 1 month. Defrost in a fridge and use same day. Do not refreeze.
