BigNews.Biz - Mar 20,2012 - Nottingham, UK, March 20, 2012 -- Chicks usually tend to steal the limelight over Easter (Monday 9th April 2012), but this year there’s a new bird in town; Packington Free Range’s cockerel.
Packington Free Range (http://www.packingtonfreerange.co.uk) guarantee the succulent, moist and flavourful meat of the cockerels through their free range upbringing which sees them spend their entire lives roaming acres of farmland in rural Staffordshire.
The versatile bird can be cooked in a variety of way; a simple roast allows the natural flavour of the meat to shine, whilst more adventurous cooks can add an extra twist with pistachio, sage and cream cheese (http://www.packingtonfreerange.co.uk/pip-and-sals-kitchen/pistachio-sage--cream-cheese-roast-cockerel/).
