Oven cook – From Chilled: For best results cook from chilled. Remove all packaging. Pre-heat your oven to 200°C/400°F/Fan 180°C/Gas Mark 6. Pull out legs to open the cavity and brush oil sparingly onto the skin and season with salt & pepper (optional). Place in an oven roasting dish and cook for the calculated time as shown on front of pack (40 minutes per kg plus an additional 20 minutes). Baste occasionally during cooking. To ensure the chicken whole is fully cooked, insert a skewer into the thickest part of the meat. If the juices run clear, not pink, it is fully cooked through. Check product is piping hot before serving. Do not re-heat. For tenderness and succulence cover with foil and allow the chicken to rest at room temperature for 10-15 minutes before carving. We have given you these cooking instructions as a guide only.
