I got my order of 20 pound of chicken a few weeks ago. I was able to process the chicken in about one and a half hours. I really like Zaycon foods chicken. It is always delivered fresh. It have very little fat to remove.
The first thing I need to do is make my chicken plan up and then post it on my cupboard so I can refer to it easily.
Here is how an average chicken breast looks right out of the box.
The chicken comes in a box with 4 ten pound bags of chicken. I usually will split a box with a friend so I only have two bags to deal with. I will take the first bag and rinse each breast set and place them in a big bowl.
Then I start to portion and cut up the chicken to make my meal packages.
For the chicken stir fry I slice the chicken into strips. For the other packages I take a chicken breast and cut it in half lengthwise like to butterfly it but I go all the way through to make it into two portions. I do this because these breast are larger than the average ones you can purchase frozen in the bags from the store.
This time I made,
4 Cashew Chicken Stir Fry Packages
3 Sweet Asian Chicken
3 Fajita Chicken
I just sprinkle the chicken breast on each side with chili powder.
3 Chicken Tenders Some how I missed a picture of these.
2 BBQ Chicken
1 Herb and Spice Rubbed Chicken I use the same recipe for rub as the whole chicken I prepare.
3 Cooked Chicken Packages
I grilled the chicken and then sliced and portioned into 3 packages. We also had some chicken for dinner the night I did all the freezer cooking.
So I ended up with 20 meals out of 20 pounds of chicken.
This should last us about 3 months until the next chicken sale with Zaycon Foods. If any of you are interested in any of these freezer package recipes let me know I will try to post them over the next month.
Disclosure: The Zaycon Foods link is my referral link, I recommend Zaycon Foods because I have been really happy with their products that I have purchased.
