"This is an impressive-looking product, with lots going on. The chicken itself is moist, with a satisfying mouthfeel that demonstrates its quality. The stuffing has a good, bold flavour with clear chunks of bacon, tasty herbs and good levels of seasoning."

Please note: this needs defrosting for 24 hours in the fridge before cooking.

For the sauce:

Whilst the chicken is resting remove the sauce from the freezer. Decant the sauce into a small saucepan, cook on a medium heat and stir continuously for 5 mins until it has defrosted. Turn the heat up slightly and cook for an additional 1 min 30 secs until piping hot.

  • We use higher welfare chicken to make our cushions and stuff it with a higher welfare sausagemeat from Speldhurst Butchers, local to our Kitchens in Kent.
  • We also use an English sparkling wine which really sets the sauce apart - it's a stand out ingredient which gives a really delicate flavour, making the overall dish a very special one.
  • This won a GTA in 2021.

Wine Pairing

  • An oaked Chardonnay is the classic pairing for roast chicken, but a Pinot Gris is a brilliant match, too. Don’t be afraid to break the white-wine-with-white-meat rule and try it with Pinot Noir.

How We Make It

  • For the handmade stuffing, our chefs combine sausagemeat from Speldhurst butchers, bacon and herbs
  • Then they wrap a butterflied breast of chicken around a stuffing
  • The sauce is made from English sparkling wine from Kent, shallots and orange

OVEN COOK

Oven:

Preheat oven. Remove from all packaging and place the chicken on a baking tray on the silicon sheet provided. Place the chicken in the middle of the oven and cook for 50 mins. If you need to cook your chicken from frozen then follow the cooking and resting instructions as above, but cook for 40 mins at 160°C Fan / 180°C Electric / Gas Mark 4. Increase the temperature of the oven to 180°C Fan / 200°C Electric / Gas Mark 6 and cook for a further 30 mins. If you see the chicken starting to catch and colour, please cover with foil for the remaining time in the oven.

Oven Settings

Fan 170°C, Electric 190°C, Gas Mark 5.
50 mins
Once cooked, leave the chicken to rest for 5 mins before carving. To serve, remove all string and carve into nice thin slices using a serrated knife.

Extra Warnings:

Steam may be released when removing lid from sauce. Although every care has been taken to remove all bones, some may remain. This Chicken Cushion is raw. As with all raw poultry, be sure to wash your hands after handling and carefully clean surfaces, chopping boards and all equipment you use in its preparation.
