Chicken has become one of Australia’s favourite foods because it is wholesome, versatile and easy to prepare. White meat chicken is one of the lowest fat protein sources, and leg meat, while a little higher in fat, adds rich flavour to any meal.
At West Hobart Gourmet Meats, our chickens are locally grown by Nichols. All Nichols chicken is free range, as are their Christmas turkeys. All Nichols poultry is produced without the use of growth hormones or antibiotics.
We also carry a range of turkey, duck and quail products.
Chicken kiev ...
All our kievs are made from Nichols chicken breast (skin off). Choose from a range of tasty fillings. Simply bake in the oven at 180°C for about 35 minutes.
Serve with a simple salad for a quick and easy mid-week meal.
- Whole roasting chicken
Roast chicken is incredibly versatile. The range of possible stuffings and basting ingredients is limited only by your imagination.
Our whole fresh chickens are meaty and flavoursome.
- Boned, rolled and seasoned chicken
A popular Christmas option. Seasonings are either traditional, ham and cranberry, or fruit (or supply your own if you wish).
- Chicken breast fillets
Low in fat and quick and easy to prepare, breast fillets are one of the most popular chicken cuts. Skin on or skin off. Add extra flavour with marinades and sauces. Also great as a satisfying addition to a salad.
- Chicken thigh fillets
A little more fat and flavour than breast meat.
- Chicken Marylands
A meaty, quick-cooking cut combining both breast and thigh meat.
- Chicken wings and drumsticks
Great for an economical barbecue option.
- Chicken mince
Ideal for pies, pasties, meatballs and burgers.
- Smoked whole chicken and smoked chicken fillet
These are all smoked on our premises without the addition of chemicals. Taste the difference.

Chicken Bocconcini Wings – plain or honey-soy
Chicken Kiev – Classic (garlic butter); Mediterranean (olives, fetta, sundried tomato); Mushroom, bacon and cheese; Spinach and Brie; or Seafood (prawns and garlic butter).

A traditional Christmas favourite. Our whole fresh turkeys are produced locally by Nichols and are available all year round (pre-order).

These are 2-3kg in size (about the size of a large chicken).

All white turkey breast meat.
- Boned, rolled and seasoned turkeys
All meat, and easy to carve and serve. Prepared by us to make your life easier. Seasonings are either traditional, ham and cranberry, or fruit (or supply your own if you wish).

On December 4th, I organised a Christmas musical soirée for thirty guests at Dysart House. John Wilson, whose catering business John & Peter is generally regarded as the finest in Australia, flew down to create the buffet.
Both he and I agree that we have never had finer ingredients, including eight fresh chickens and the best-ever ham from West Hobart Gourmet Meats. Your products are simply the best.
