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.

On the Grill

Grillmasters love to boast their own proprietary grilled chicken recipes. We like to keep it simple. Throw together your favorite marinade in a ziploc bag—say, oil, vinegar, honey, mustard, and lemon juice?—add your chicken breasts, and let it sit for a couple of hours. Once the grill is hot, give it a couple minutes on each side and bingo.

Using a Broiler

Get your broiler going on high. Slice your chicken breasts in half (lengthwise) before rubbing them down with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a cajun spice mix of your choosing. Place your chicken breasts on the rack and broil them 4-5 minutes on each side.

In a Pan

We like to pat the chicken breast dry, then coat it in a mix of flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then we heat a generous drizzle of oil in a pan on medium heat before searing the protein 4-5 minutes on each side.


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.
