You can give the family two nutritious chicken meals with one whole chicken. Simply add some of your favorite seasonings on the chicken (salt, pepper, garlic, rosemary, thyme, lemon, and yes butter) and throw the bird into the oven or a grill. Afternoon already too full? Put the whole chicken into a crock pot and pull off the tender chicken to make soup, barbecue chicken sandwiches, or stir fry, just to name a few. Both options leave you with leftovers for the next day (fist pump!)
Intimidated by cooking a whole chicken? Our blogpost on cooking a whole chicken will give you the recipe and confidence you’ll need to pull it off (Hint: Our pastured chickens are so moist and flavorful, it’s hard to mess it up).
Keep the bones and carcass and simply add water and tablespoon of vinegar. Allow them to simmer in your crockpot overnight and you’ll have nutrient-dense chicken stock for your next soup!
For the 2018 season, our pastured chickens (not egg layers) were supplemented with a ration of scratch grains, alfalfa hay, and legumes (peas). The scratch grains included corn, which we could not verify is GMO free. Beginning in 2019, our farm will be completely 100% non-GMO.
