Product description

⭐⭐ great taste® 2022

We favour the darkness of flesh and depth of flavour of free range, roast chicken* legs; the brown meat being far richer in flavour than the white. Economically priced and endlessly versatile, one leg is ideal for one portion; and whether you’re planning to pot-roast with wine and herbs or slowly-bake with crisp skin, chicken legs are a winner every time.

Chef Val Warner inspires:
"A whole chicken leg, usually divided in two, is often a hard thing to find, a thigh or leg always leaving me wondering where the other bit has gone.

I like a whole leg oven roasted with a handful of fresh sage and rosemary, butter, a dash of white wine and a lot of garlic, served simply with French fries.

Brilliant on the grill with fresh thyme and garlic all dusted with smoked paprika and given an occasional spray (from a squeezy bottle) of equal parts olive oil, water and lemon juice - this produced a memorably joyful dinner in Portugal.

A go to dish at home is whole chicken, legs cooked in a cast iron pot with onions, smoked bacon lardons, whole tart apples, cider and brandy. Lift them out carefully and serve with the whole apple steaming beside. A joy!

Try slashing the leg and marinating in fish sauce, pounded garlic, chillies, a little jaggery or sugar, finely pounded lemongrass and coconut milk and then grilling over charcoal. Delicious!

So too a barbecue sauce containing roast and puréed pineapple with chipotle chilli, slapped on and grilled is just phwoar!"

great taste® commented:
"These chicken legs were visibly juicy, with golden skins and plump meat. The texture was remarkably tender, with incredible moisture and a rich depth of flavour. Chicken perfection.

These are beautifully plump chicken legs, replete with plenty of moist meat that is indeed full of flavour, with an impressive length on the palate and deep savouriness that sticks around and is satisfying on the tongue. An impressive product.

These are good-sized legs with an appealing, clean, meaty aroma. The meat is tender and succulent and has a sweet, mellow, clean flavour. This is a very pleasant easy-going chicken that has more flavour than most and would be a crowd-pleaser."
