When this dish comes out of the aga, everyone licks their lips. It has always been a favourite family supper in our house, a whole meal in one dish. Originally Mummy reared the chickens herself and she always served it in a big black roasting tin.
Dan’s chickens take 12 weeks to reach maturity. They are fed on organic feed and range freely on his farm in Dungourney, East Cork. Every Thursday and Saturday, customers queue at his stalls in Mahon Point and Midleton to buy the flavourful chickens.
