The Best Poussin Recipe

Create an impressive dinner party with a delicious poussin recipe that is made with your favourite seasonings. The tenderness and juiciness of this dish will leave the crowd fully satisfied. Enjoy with a mix of the best herbs, chilli, lemons and a side dish of rosemary and garlic/

Poussin is a small, immature chicken that is often called a spring chicken. It weighs about 400 to 500g and is four to six weeks old. One bird is perfect for a single serving, as there is not much flesh on the bones. The meat is extremely soft and flavourful.

Poussin is often stuffed with different seasonings to add flavours. The recipe below lets you prepare it in its simplest form, whilst still being absolutely delicious.
