Finished…. Yummy!

eat lots of pastured chicken around here. I think the biggest mistake I made in the past was over cooking it, which made the breast dry. Pastured chicken cooks differently. Always cook it LOW and SLOW!!!

Leftover ideas!

  • chicken salad
  • chicken and kale stew
  • chicken enchiladas ( a Giovelli favorite! )
  • taco chicken bowl
