STORAGE ADVICE While we’d be surprised if you could resist the temptation to enjoy immediately, please keep refridgerated unless you intend to eat it right away! Otherwise all our quality meat is suitable for freezing to preserve its taste and texture, meaning you can cook and serve it when you fancy. Once it’s been frozen, please thaw your meat slowly and thoroughly, ideally in the fridge overnight. We vacuum-pack our meat to naturally extend its freshness and make it suitable for home-freezing.

Cooking instructions- crispy chicken thigh
INGREDIENTS
8 plump chicken thighs, skin on
2 lemons
2 tbsp chopped tarragon
2 tbsp olive oil
750g new potatoes
2 tsp paprika , sweet or smoked
Method
STEP 1
Heat oven to 220C/fan 200/gas 7. Wipe the chicken thighs with kitchen paper. Finely grate the zest from 1 lemon and squeeze the juice from both. Mix in a shallow dish with the tarragon, 1 tbsp of the oil, and some salt and pepper. Slash the skin of each thigh three times, then turn in the marinade. The chicken pieces can be cooked immediately or left in the fridge for up to a day.
STEP 2
Cut the potatoes into wedges and spread over a roasting tin. Toss in the remaining oil and sprinkle with paprika. Set a rack on top and arrange the chicken pieces on the rack. Bake for 30-40 mins, until the chicken is well browned and the potatoes tender. Serve with a simple green salad.
