Chicken - why it is so versatile and healthy
We sell a lot of chickens at Jim's Butchers and its popularity is enduring. It's perfect as a roast dinner on Sunday (or any other day of the week), basted in butter, seasoned with salt and cooked in the oven to perfection.
Chicken legs and chicken drumsticks make perfect finger food or for those barbecues that we're all hoping to be cooking on soon.
Chicken thighs and breasts are perfect in stir fries, curries and casseroles.
Chicken has many health benefits too:
Chicken Contains Nutrients Linked with Mood
Chicken Provides Vitamins and Minerals Involved in Brain Function
Chicken is Easy to Eat
Chicken Builds Muscle
Chicken Strengthens Bones
Chicken Promotes Heart Health
Chicken Aids in Weight Loss
The only limit to cooking with chicken is your imagination.
We're lucky in Great Yarmouth to have such loyal customers with eclectic tastes in food. People assume, wrongly, that market chips are the only local delicacy, but when eating out returns soon and you're tucking into a meal at a pub or restaurant, there's a high chance that this butchers in Great Yarmouth have supplied it.
The thing about chicken is that the different cuts are so versatile.
Let's take the chicken leg; on a roast chicken it's arguably the most succulent section. It has that mixture of moistness and meatiness that many love.
In other dishes, the legs don't collapse as the bone holds them together and the texture doesn't crumble. They're loved in lots of dishes with BBC Good Food no less having 25 recipes for chicken legs here.
One of our most popular social statuses last year was this one on chicken showing the different cuts - ICYMI it's here:
