    Once spatchcocked (split open and flattened), poussins can be quickly grilled, each bird then providing a single serving. Here they are basted with a Japanese-style mixture made with fresh ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil. Serve with boiled jasmine rice or noodles and crisp, steamed vegetables such as Chinese leaf and mange-tout.

    There are so many marinades you can use for barbecued chicken, this recipe makes the most succulent poussin. The acid in the beer marinade helps to tenderise the meat and add flavour.

    Delicious over couscous or rice. I use a seasoned casserole, but any roasting tin will do. Given to me with permission by family friend.

    This is a fantastic way of cooking poussin. They are marinated in brine, then roasted with citrus fruits, rosemary and thyme. The resulting meat is tender and packed full of flavour. This recipe also works well with chicken.

    A great little roast chicken dish, which is just enough to serve two people. A poussin is marinated in a honey-soy sauce marinade, then roasted to perfection. It's served with blanched asparagus and savoury rice.
