Watch Rob Potter as he carefully demonstrates how you can break down a whole bird at home.

 

There are several benefits to buying a whole chicken and breaking it down at home:

•Buying a whole chicken is more cost-effective than buying separate parts.

When you purchase a whole chicken, your recipe options are endless! Think baked chicken breasts, wings, and more!

•Using parts that would normally be disposed, like chicken backs, to make chicken stock is a great idea. Bone stock is rich in minerals that help build and strengthen your bones. It also contains many other healthy nutrients, including vitamins, amino acids, and essential fatty acids

•A benefit all our grass fed, pastured chicken products have is that their meat is highly enriched in omega-3 fats. This is due to the pasture-based diet we provide our birds, which means more nutrients for you and your family
