For roast chicken that's ready in less than an hour, try butterflied chicken carefully prepared by our butchers. Butterflied chicken has the backbone removed, making it easy to open and flatten, so it cooks so much faster.

Instead of battling a whole chicken with kitchen shears, our butterflied chicken comes well presented and ready for you to add your favourite seasonings before roasting or slow cooking.

Butterflied chicken is perfect if you are squeamish about cutting up a whole chicken carcass.  Our pre-marinated butterflied chicken is perfectly presented and ready for the oven or grill.

For more cooking recommendations, come and ask us in store! Our passionate staff are always helpful with new ideas to tantalise your palate.

Be assured that all of our chicken is FREPA certified and sourced from local producers throughout Victoria and New South Wales.

Frequently asked questions

How do I cook butterflied chicken?

Butterflied chicken can be cooked in the oven, with the skin side up on a baking tray. Bake for around 50-60 minutes at 180 degrees.

Alternatively, you can try something different — our Butterflied Chicken Tuscan can be cooked on the barbecue with the hood down for a charred, juicy finish.

Can I order butterflied chicken online?

You can! We offer free delivery for orders over $70 within the Melbourne metropolitan area. Any orders outside of this area will be cancelled and refunded.

For the Mornington Peninsula, orders are delivered only on Wednesday. Any online orders placed during the week for this region will arrive on the soonest Wednesday.

Can you recommend a wine to match your seasoned butterflied chicken?

Absolutely. If you are shopping online, you'll find suggestions for wine pairing in the listing. We even have wines available for purchase so you can get everything for your meal in one place.

If you're in the store, ask our helpful staff! They're passionate about flavour and will be able to make a recommendation.

How large is a butterflied chicken?

Our butterflied chickens are generally around 1.2-1.3kg. All of our chickens are certified free range and locally sourced to ensure the highest quality and best flavour.
