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!
Pair with Jamie Oliver's crispy and fluffy Best Roast Potatoes recipe!

Beautiful meat extremely tasty made a lovely Sunday lunch and would definitely buy again
Cooked perfectly, fed 6 adults, 2 of which were unplanned, so very tasty and moist. I buy one every other week now.
We had your chicken cushion for Sunday supper, with all the trimmings. I just sprinkled it with mixed herbs, put it in a Roastabag on a bed of sliced onions, to make the gravy even tastier - it was delicious and so easy to carve. Really looking forward to our second serving tonight.
A geat alternative to a basic chicken with no wastage, sooo tasty
First time cooking and eating a chicken cushion, I've often seen them in the shop but always preferred a whole bird. I am a convert. Moist, tender and delicious, rave reviews from everyone at the table. Plenty left over for sandwiches too.
