Hensons Gourmet Poultry

Breast On Bone



Bone-in chicken breast is a great way to cook chicken because the bone adds flavour and moisture to the meat. The skin also crisps up nicely, making for a delicious and nutritious meal. Our gourmet poultry is sourced from local farmers who raise their chickens humanely and without antibiotics or hormones. You can trust that our poultry is always fresh and never frozen. Simply roast in the oven or grill on the BBQ for a healthy and satisfying meal. Add some vegetables or a starch and you’ve got a complete, home-cooked dinner!

Bone-in chicken breast refers to a chicken breast that still has the bone attached to it. Cooking a bone-in chicken breast can take longer than boneless, as the bone helps insulate the meat and keep it moist. The bone can also add flavor to the meat. Some popular cooking methods for bone-in chicken breast include roasting, grilling, and braising.

Baking a bone-in, skin-on chicken breast involves leaving the bone and skin intact while cooking the meat in an oven. This method of cooking can result in a juicier and more flavorful finished product, as the bone and skin help to protect the meat from drying out. To bake a bone-in chicken breast, you can season the meat with your desired herbs, spices, or marinade and then place it on a baking sheet or in a baking dish. The general rule of thumb is to bake it at 375-400F (190-200C) for 25-35 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 165F (74C) when measured with a meat thermometer.
