Greenane’s all-natural spring chickens—Poussin in French—Roasted, stuffed or grilled, they are truly delicious, and make for a lovely presentation when served one to a guest at a dinner party.
Poussin is simply a small, young chicken. Sometimes called spring chicken, though it’s available year-round, we use the French term because it is most familiar to chefs and butchers. And now to you.
With a small size of 16 to 24 ounces, poussin makes the perfect portion for serving one adult. Our Poussin are fed a natural diet of whole grains, vegetables and our secret ingredient…milk whey, which makes these little birds extra juicy, extra tender, and extra delicious.
The meat is tender, mild and sweet—just like chicken, but more delicate and a bit leaner. Some call this the veal of chicken. Poussin is more commonly enjoyed in Europe than in the United States, but we are hoping you’ll help change that.
