Chicken extra large

£16.75 / 2kg


A whole fresh organic chicken for roasting or poaching. Most chickens are sold without giblets these days, but we include them so you can make the absolute best stock for gravy. Roast dinner heaven!

Our chickens are truly free range and organic, spending their time grazing outdoors, resulting in tender meat that’s full of natural flavour. Serves 4-5.

Delivered in insulated packaging to keep cool on your doorstep.

The best chicken I’ve ever tried – delicious and obviously properly reared
- Emma, Riverford customer

How to prepare

For a 2kg chicken, brush with olive oil or butter, season well inside and out, and roast in a 190°C/Gas 5 oven for about 95 mins, until no pink juices remain (any stuffing will increase the cooking time). Baste several times during cooking. Alternatively, poach with stock vegetables for 95 mins.


Keep in the fridge below 5˚C. If you’re not going to eat it within a day or two, freeze your meat as soon as possible and always within the use by date. Once frozen, use within a month. Use on the day of defrosting.
