About Ping Yuen Chicken


Hong Kong traditions and folklore have celebrated the ritual of eating whole chickens during festivities. Sourcing quality, fresh chicken is difficult in this day and age where supermarket meats are often frozen and vacuum-packed for weeks before they see the table. Ping Yuen Chicken eliminates that concept by offering farm-fresh chicken, delivered every day to the doors of Michelin-starred restaurants. The brand partnered with China Light and Power Co. Ltd for a Greenplus programme which is the first environmentally-friendly farm in Hong Kong to deliver from local farm to table, and it has no added hormones.


The chickens are born and raised for up to one hundred days near the peaceful Ping Yuen River in the countryside of New Territories. Known for their signature golden-yellow skin, the chickens are sought after for their consistency and preservative-free upbringings.

At ZEST by Konishi, Chef Mitsuru Konishi earned his reputation by blending contemporary French cuisine with Japanese flair in his dishes. After working at two Michelin-starred L’ATELIER de Joël Robuchon in Tokyo, and in France at L’Hôtel de Carantec and at Taillevent, Chef Konishi became the first Japanese Sous Chef in the famed restaurant’s history. He then moved to Hong Kong and earned two Michelin stars at Wagyu Takumi as an Executive Chef, before embarking on his own vision at ZEST by Konishi (which has attained a Michelin star), which uses the famed Ping Yuen Chicken as a signature dish.
