Tim's Roast 100 Day Chicken

Tim's Roast 100 Day Chicken

Description

These old-fashioned reared chickens live, as the label says, for 100 days minimum, some up to 114 days, compared to a commercial bird which only lives for 40 to 45 days. Our 100 day birds live outside, running about. Two things happen – the muscles are laid down slower, especially in the thigh and leg, which means cooking has to be at a slightly lower temperature and for a little longer period than their short-lived cousins – and a little fat is laid down under the skin. Both these affect the cooking time when compared to a commercial bird.
