Poached Free-range Chicken Breasts – juicy & succulent

These will come to you fresh, keep in the fridge for a week, otherwise freeze a few of the breasts for other meals when needed. Such a versatile protein, you will have no problems coming up with meals, but if you want a bit of extra inspo, see our post on Poached Free-range Chicken Breast done 10 ways.

Our Hazeldenes free-range chicken breasts, are gently cooked sous vide which makes for a really succulent texture. Warm gently to serve or slice & eat cold as we do in salads, there’s nothing but chicken in the packs so these will benefit from a little salt love. Please note that these breasts may drop a little pale pink liquid, we have drained most of it for you, the liquid is pink as the free-range meat is not bleached as commercial chicken often is and are and there will be slight bloodlines. This chicken is 100% safe to eat, cold or warm, our process has been microbiologically tested to be safe for 20 days as part of our food safety program.


Chickpea & Fava Bean Falafels – wholesome & filling
