We're using the French term for a young chicken: poussin (poo-SAHN). You might have heard the term "spring chicken" which is yet another way of saying it.

What's great about these little birds is that the back and breast bones have been artfully removed (saves you the trouble). As a result, they cook quickly and evenly. They are ideal candidates for the grill, and easy to serve one per guest. And they are perfect for stuffing generously and oven roasting.

The all-white meat is just like chicken, but more delicate and a bit leaner. Sometimes we call this the veal of chicken.

D’Artagnan is dedicated to finding farmers that share our vision of a more humane and sustainable way of rearing livestock. We look at scale and sustainability; working only with those farms that respect nature and focus on the best animal welfare practices.

We procure our poussin from two small poultry farms, one in New Jersey, the other in South Carolina. Both farms follow strict protocols and raise the birds humanely in open barns with plenty of space, on an all-vegetarian diet of corn, soy and clean, fresh water without any antibiotics or hormones.

Proper, humane methods make these young chickens not only tasty, but also a safe and healthy option for you and your family.

Pan roast, broil or grill the bird whole, or cook it flat in a sauté pan for super-crispy skin. Because a poussin is small, it will cook quickly, which means that a single poussin makes an excellent weeknight meal for one adult or two children.

For the grill: simply brush the skin with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, and you are all set.

Being semi-boneless, they are easy to pan sear flat and then roast briefly in the oven for a crispy finish. You can cook poussin as you prefer your chicken: pan roasted, broiled or grilled for tasty results.

Our Poussin

When it comes to succulent chicken, there’s nothing quite like our poussin. This is truly the veal of chicken, with tender, delicate, all-white meat. We source from two impeccable farms with humane practices to provide the highest quality young poultry.
