3lbs of non-GMO whole chicken goodness coming from Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry in Chilliwack, BC. Who can say no to that? You don't have to worry about choosing between dark or white meat and you probably won't need to worry about cooking for the rest of the week either. Leftovers are encouraged. We are thinking chicken sandwiches, chicken soup, or risotto made with your own chicken broth!
COOKING TIP: You'll need to pull out your roasting pan or cast iron for this one. Be generous when you coat the chicken with oil (we like to mix in some butter, too). Make sure you get it in the cavity and under the skin! Once it's cooking, check the temperature on the thickest part of the breast and legs to make sure everything stays juicy. You want to take it out of the oven when the internal temperature of the breasts reaches 155°F and then let it rest in a warm place for about 30 minutes. The temperature should reach 165°F before carving. Don't forget to simmer the bones in water for a delicious homemade stock! Need some inspiration, check out our broth recipe.
