Make the most of this great-tasting ingredient in store now

New Zealand-based poultry company Tegel is completely dedicated to raising great-tasting, premium chickens without added hormones. There’s also a healthy commitment to making customers’ lives easier, thanks to roast-in-the-bag whole birds, cooked and shredded chicken breasts plus cook-from-frozen snacks and meal solutions.

But if you’d prefer to marinate and roast a bird yourself, a Tegel chook is still the way to go – this whole roast madras chicken is a real keeper.

The juiciest roast chicken is also the simplest. All you’ve got to do is stick to the key principles – good seasoning, an oven set to high and the care and attention to baste halfway.
