    We are long standing Copas clients but this was the first time with a cockerel. Size was good and it was plump. Easy to cook but the breast meat was tough. The legs were tender though. Juicy and moist all over and lots of juice to go into the gravy. It looked just like your picture when we took it out of the oven. I wonder whether the turkey direction of starting to cook upside down might have helped or not.

    We didn’t enjoy this as much as last year, the meat was a bit tougher. It is also very expensive for what it is. The giblets made a fabulous gravy though and the timer probe was very useful.

    Quite ok, but not as fab as hoped would be - Turkey next year

    Last year’s order didn’t arrive on time and the company were very helpful and delivered another in time for Christmas. Excellent customer service.

    Christmas Cockerell

    Posted by Neil on 21st Jan 2022

    We have had a Copas Cockerell for at least four years and it is perfect for us. The flavour and quality of the poultry is more than first class and we be ordering one for next Christmas without hesitation.

    An excellent tasty alternative for those who want a change from turkey.

1. Remove the chicken from the fridge 30 minutes before cooking.
2. Preheat the oven to 200C (180C Fan)
3. Season the chicken and put in a preheated tray for 20 mins.
4. Then reduce the temp down to 180C (160C Fan), and cook for a further 30 minutes per kg.
5. Check that the juices run clear at the end of time using a skewer to the thickest part of the thigh.
6. If the juices are not clear, cook for a further 10 minutes.
7. When cooked remove and rest for at least 15 minutes.
