A Summer to Savor & SAVE!

Our new organic chicken – in butcher cuts – has been quite popular.  While we are huge advocates of roasting the whole bird, we appreciate the convenience of these trays of thighs, wings, drums and chicken breasts. Especially when feeding a party.

This week you can save 15% off all chicken – our Green Circle chicken, chicken sausages, smoked chicken breasts, poussin and all the rest. It’s time to cook some chicken! FB_ChickenSale

We like this recipe for sticky drumsticks, which are grilled and then generously glazed with balsamic vinegar and honey marinade.

Or go the classic route and make fried chicken drumsticks … with duck fat.

And we are introducing a new product just in time for Dad’s day: organic, air-chilled chicken wings!

Our fabulous, organic whole chicken has always been a popular bird, and we know you will love the parts. After all, everyone loves nibbling on wings. Even some of our French chef friends serve an homage to the classic recipe, complete with hot sauce and blue cheese.

We like to make “truffalo” wings – our oven-baked version of the famous Buffalo chicken wings, by swapping black truffle butter for regular butter. We think Frank’s Red Hot Sauce is a must for the sauce (some things are sacred), and recommend that you be generous with the butter.

Those black specks are bits of truffle, not black pepper.

But you don’t have to stop there. We whipped up two more recipes for those who want to try something different. This harissa-honey chicken wing recipe starts on the grill for a smoky, spicy kick. The sauce goes on last, to keep the honey from burning on the grates.

Serve with yogurt sauce and other Middle Eastern favorites to make a meal.

Our fried Asian-style wings recipe has sweet chili sauce to balance the heat of sambal oelek (or your favorite chile sauce). One of the benefits of making wings at home is that you control all the ingredients. If you want to eat “fast food,” we think it’s best to make it yourself.

Crispy, crunchy, sweet and spicy, these wings have it all.

Try our organic chicken wings, available in 1-pound tray packs (in a case of 4) or in bulk (2 bags, 5 pounds each) for a simple home treat, or your next gathering, whether for the game or a backyard party. And save 20% right now in our Father’s Day special.

 

Our Green Circle Chicken

You may have seen Mike Rowe’s TV show Somebody’s Gotta Do It on CNN last night … with our own Ariane and a flock of chickens! Mike was interested in our new Green Circle chickens because of the way they are raised. So he and Ariane went to the farm to see how it’s done.

This Green Circle chicken was a passion project for Ariane, who was inspired by the common sense, waste-nothing philosophy of days past, when chickens lived on vegetable scraps and roamed freely around farmyards. It’s the way her grandmother raised chickens and they were the tastiest birds around.

Free-ranging chickens.

In that tradition and in an effort to provide truly tasty chicken, we raise our chickens on a diet of surplus vegetables and trimmings. We’re talking about actual vegetables here – collected from commercial kitchens and farmer’s markets. By saving these vegetables from their fate in a landfill and turning them into nutritious chicken feed, we raise healthier birds and contribute to a better world.

Not only are they fed well, these chickens are certified humane, making them rare birds indeed. They are air-chilled during processing, which means you get nothing but pure chicken flavor, not retained water.

Our holistic approach produces truly wholesome results. And that’s why we call it a Green Circle chicken. No waste = great taste.

The Green Circle chicken is available on our website and in some retail stores. Ask for it in your local store and help us spread the word on this new kind of old-fashioned bird!
