“Made from 100% locally raised Ontario chicken.”
It doesn’t get much better than hand-cut chicken breasts sourced from local Ontario farms. Air-chilled chicken breast, that is. While most Ontario-sourced chicken breast is water chilled, ours is air chilled, helping to retain that beautiful colour and big natural flavour without any extra water weight. All Butcher Shoppe chickens come from free-run farms in the local area. It’s fresh, all-natural chicken breast right from your own backyard.
Chicken breasts are the pectoral muscles of a chicken, of which there are two. It’s an excellent source of lean protein that’s easy to prepare and suitable for a wide variety of dishes. Next to chicken wings, chicken breast is one of the most commonly purchased proteins in the United States.
Glad you asked! Our chicken breast is sourced from local Ontario chicken farms without exception.
Prepare or freeze your Butcher Shoppe chicken breasts within five days of receiving them.You don’t need to wash raw chicken breast! This will only spread juices to other surfaces. Instead, wash hands before handling and use a separate cutting board for your raw chicken protein. Otherwise, the key is to avoid drying the chicken breast out during cooking.
Chicken breast is the health nut’s choice for a reason: a four-ounce serving contains just about 100 calories and almost two dozen grams of protein. It’s lean, it’s healthy, and it’s incredibly easy to make.
From the Head Butcher’s Counter
“Where you get your chicken breast matters. From the farm the chickens are raised on, to how the meat is chilled, we really scrutinize every last detail, which you’ll find in the juicy tender flavor of Butcher Shoppe chicken breast.”
How the Butcher’s Prepare Chicken Breasts
Chicken breast is all about simplicity and versatility. It’s a weekly staple for busy people. That’s why our butchers go for a chicken and rice recipe where the whole kit and kaboodle is simmered in chicken broth. Both rice and protein soak up that moisture, making for an extra flavorful chicken and rice recipe that will keep a busy person fed for a week.
No! This only spreads the raw juices. Instead, wash your hands thoroughly before and after handling raw chicken, and pat your protein dry with paper towels before cooking. Finally, always use a separate cutting board for raw meat.
Sourced locally, naturally air-chilled, and hand-prepared by expert butchers. Period.
