A while back the people at Just Bare Chicken asked if they could send me some chicken. I agreed, it was an unexpected offer, and what came to my house was a rather larger than expected box of packaged chicken. We ate really well for a while there.
Just Bare Chicken is family farm raised, sustainable, cage free, vegetable fed, no hormones, no antibiotics. It comes in packing that is recyclable. And you can learn more about the farm where the chicken was raised by entering the Family Farm code on the packaging into the website. It’s all good stuff, you can read more here.
Just Bare Chicken comes with all the icky bits neatly trimmed away*, in packaging that is easy to open. I was pleased to find that the chicken stays tender no matter what sort of cooking torture I put it through, including when I was sure I terribly overcooked some plump breasts while making Mustard-Tarragon Chicken, tenderloin strips put up with my aggressive overbaking when making parmesan chicken strips, both drumsticks and boneless thighs held their own in some Chicken Marbella and a whole chicken turned out very well when we roasted it upside down (on purpose I swear) but stuffed it so full of lemons and herbs that we needed to give it extra cooking time.
I find myself missing Just Bare chicken this week as I’m in a hectic whirl of last minute travel and reception planning for an upcoming trip to a distant state. The chicken was so easy to pop out of the packaging and throw into a pan, and yielded outstanding (at least for me, admittedly it doesn’t take much to make my cooking better) dinner results. It’s not widely available yet but if you can find it I can recommend trying it out, especially if you’re in a bit of a hurry that evening.
* (Despite myself I’m still squeamish over raw meat and find trimming it to be a bit of a trying experience while trying to keep things in my tiny kitchen uncontaminated.)
