Fancy something different by way of chicken?
To make this wonderful and easy to handle and eat, chicken cushion, a chicken is carefully taken off the bone, then wrapped around sausage meat, surrounded by streaky bacon and then tied carefully to give a decorative ‘cushion’ shape.
Deliciously different and not just for the festive period!
How to cook:
Preheat the oven to 190°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
Place the Cushion in a roasting tin and cook for approximately an hour and 15 mins, basting if preferred. Cook for longer if required The meat is cooked when, if it is pierced with a clean skewer, the juices run clear.
After cooking, remove from the oven and let it rest for 15 minutes before carving. Remember to remove the string before doing so!

Just fabulous. In our 2nd chicken cushion & we are loving it. So tasty & reasonably priced too.
Me nd my family tried it for the first time nd it went down so well I’ve been told to get it again
First time ordering a chicken cushion, it was delicious very tasty & moist. Will certainly be ordering another. Also great value for money as fed 4 and still plenty of leftovers.
Never had one of these before, didn't even know what it was. We had half last night with mash and veg and it was delicious, having the other half tonight with roasties. I bought two so I'll add a photo when we have the next one
Now that is a Roast Dinner since Lockdown it’s become a firm family favourite
