Corn Fed Poussin x 3

£ 19.95



Our Corn Fed Poussin are a real treat. Fed on a diet rich in corn, these young chickens are very tender, juicy and yet packed full of flavour. The all-white meat has a delicate sweetness to it. Not dissimilar to chicken, but just a little bit leaner. So, if you love chicken but want to try something different, then our corn fed poussin is a great choice. The meat is always super tasty and moist because these birds are cooked on the bone.

Each poussin is the perfect portion for one so why not wow your guests at your next dinner party by serving each of them this much underrated bird. There are loads of fantastic recipes but to get your creative juices flowing how about Lemon And Thyme Poussin with Roasted Potatoes or Lebanese Poussin with Spiced Aubergine Pilaf.

If it looks like barbecue weather, why not pop a few of these birds over the flames having marinaded them in orange and honey overnight. Sweet, sticky and delicious. Serve with a simple cucumber and tomato salad and some homemade coleslaw.

Whatever your favourite recipe is, poussin is endlessly versatile and will quickly become a family favourite.

As with any chicken, make sure the juices run clear after cooking before serving.
