Some people disregard roosters as not worthy of eating but the truth is more people eat roosters around the world than those who don't because at the end of the day a rooster is a chicken and if cooked correctly is a tasty dish.
Whenever chickens are hatched out it's likely they won't all be girls (especially backyard hatcheries) so what to do with a bunch of boy chooks? Give them a good and happy short life and eat'em!
The reason why roosters have a bad name for eating is because people cook them incorrectly. Rooster meat is not necessarily "gamey" (you could call it that and I have too) but really they are leaner and a little tougher than a standard meat chicken. Therefore, the worst way people can cook a rooster is by roasting unless real care is taken not to dry out the bird during the process.
I quite like the famous French dish Coq au vin (rooster cooked in wine) but there are plenty of other ways to make a great feed out of a humble rooster and my rooster soup is one them even if I do say so
This recipe can obviously be done with any chicken and it practically is one-pot cooking for less mess whilst still remaining a tasty and full meal for up to 6 people. The reason we love this recipe besides the big flavours is because of its practical use of the full bird, low cost meal, and low mess cooking.
