Indulge in the exquisite taste of Bresse chicken, a delicacy that’s been enjoyed by foodies around the world for generations. At La Boucherie, we source only the finest Bresse chickens from their birthplace in the Burgundy region of France. Known for their unique genetics, Bresse chickens have a distinctive flavour that’s unlike any other chicken breed.
One of the reasons why Bresse chicken is so sought after is because of its meat-to-bone ratio. The chicken’s thin and dainty bones give it a significantly higher ratio of meat to bone compared to traditional meat chickens. This means that every bite of this cut is packed with tender and juicy meat, perfect for any culinary creation.
One classic French way to prepare this cut is to roast it in the oven with plenty of herbs and garlic, and perhaps a splash of white wine. You can stuff the chicken with herbs, citrus, or other aromatics for extra flavour, and baste it with melted butter or chicken stock to keep it moist and flavourful.
Our Bresse chickens are also renowned for their growth pattern, resulting in meat that’s both flavourful and succulent. Whether you’re looking to impress your dinner guests or simply enjoy a high-quality meal at home, La Boucherie’s poultry is a must-try.
