This week we are showcasing Chicken.
Research shows over 40% of meals cooked in the home consist of Chicken.
Another versatile meat, Chicken is exceptional value for money, from the whole roast, to stir frying breasts and of course a mountain of wings in front of the TV!
Chicken is also an excellent source of protein in the diet. It is naturally low in carbohydrates, is a good source of Vitamin B3 and Vitamin B6 and is also a good source of minerals including iron.
Generally chicken breast meat contains the lowest level of fat, followed by skinless thigh and drumsticks. Removing the skin from the chicken portion considerably lowers the overall fat content of the meat.
All our Chicken is Free Range and has been raised with access to the open air and allowed to roam freely. It is generally consumed for this reason and that the taste is different to other methods of raising chicken giving a slightly "Gamier" taste.
Below you will find a recipe to give you a little inspiration, plus look out on our Social Media this week for more recipe videos.
