A small, immature chicken, sometimes called a spring chicken, and weighing about 400 to 500g. Because the bird is only four to six weeks old, the flavour has not developed and there is not much flesh on the bones, but one bird is perfect for a single serving.
Poussins benefit from a rich stuffing to add flavour. A good way to cook them is spatchcocked on the barbecue.
