Chicken Cooking Times

There are so many different ovens around these days that it is not surprising that we get confused when it comes to the optimum cooking times. To make things easier we have put together 2 tables that will help you get the best results from whatever type of oven you have chosen. The first table is for Whole Chicken with the second table for Chicken Portions

But remember

"All appliances vary so take these times as Guidelines only"

* As all appliances vary, the above information is to be used as a guideline only. Remember to always weigh your chicken after preparation & before you place it in the oven especially if you have stuffed the bird. This will ensure the optimum cooking time. The above times are calculated by allowing 20 mins per 454g/1lb plus 20 mins extra. Ensure product is thoroughly cooked before serving.
