Cooking Tips

  • Season well: Since boneless, skinless chicken breasts are relatively lean, it's important to season them well before cooking to maximize their flavor. You can use a simple seasoning blend of salt, pepper, and garlic powder, or get creative with other spices and herbs that complement chicken, such as paprika, thyme, or rosemary.
  • Use high heat: Chicken breasts cook quickly, so it's best to use high heat to sear and brown them on the outside while keeping them juicy and tender on the inside. You can cook them on a grill, a stovetop skillet, or in the oven at a high temperature (around 400°F or 205°C) for best results.
  • Cook to the right temperature: To ensure that your chicken breasts are cooked safely and evenly, use a meat thermometer to check their internal temperature. They should reach a minimum internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) to be safe to eat. However, be careful not to overcook them, as this can cause them to dry out and become tough.
  • Let them rest: After cooking your chicken breasts, let them rest for a few minutes before slicing or serving. This will allow the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more tender and flavorful chicken. Tent them with foil to keep them warm while they rest.
  • Get creative: Chicken breasts are incredibly versatile and can be used in a wide variety of dishes, from salads and stir-fries to sandwiches and pasta. Experiment with different marinades, sauces, and cooking methods to find your favorite ways to enjoy them. With their all-natural, antibiotic-free, and air-chilled qualities, these chicken breasts are sure to be a hit in any recipe you choose.

More Than Just Great-Tasting Chicken

Our chicken might be the best you’ve ever tasted - but the flavor is just the beginning.

That’s because we source our chicken from Common Wealth Poultry, a small family-owned artisan processor in Gardiner, Maine. 

Common Wealth is on a mission to do much more than just sell chicken. 

As Ryan Wilson, the owner of Common Wealth, explains:

“From the farmers raising our flocks, the chickens themselves, to the truck drivers delivering them, every single employee here at Common Wealth Poultry, to you - we want to tremendously impact lives in a huge way.”

Farmer Dan's Note

Chicken breasts from the grocery store are uniformly dry and tasteless. Not so with these tasty breasts - try them and discover for yourself.

FAQs

Air chilled is a method of poultry processing that involves cooling the chickens after they have been processed using only cold air, rather than submerging them in cold water. In traditional processing methods, chickens are usually chilled in cold water, which can lead to water absorption and dilution of the chicken's natural flavor. Read more about how Commonwealth Pountry air-chills their chickens.

Chickens are fed a wholesome and nutritious recipe made of whole grain corn, soy, essential vitamins, and amino acids which support optimal development in our flock.

Chickens are fed a diet that is 100% vegetarian and are not given growth-promoting antibiotics. They are raised and processed in a humane manner and are never adulterated in any way. That said, they are not certified organic. Certifications like organic, which merely dictate a 'worst case' scenario, are prohibitively expensive for farmers and processors below a certain size.

The chickens are reared in temperature controlled houses that allow them to have comfortable living conditions and do not restrict their movement. They are not confined, or over-stocked like factory farmed chickens are. Commonwealth hand selects the best growers, and ensures that humane treatment and practices are always being followed. Improperly raised birds don't taste anywhere near as good as well-raised birds.

Chickens are primarily raised on small family farms in Pennsylvania, and to a lesser extent in New Hampshire. Commonwealth’s decision to raise birds outside of Maine was the result of an extensive sustainability analysis conducted in collaboration with the University of Maine, considering the carbon footprint of growing here versus in a warmer climate, and the emissions associated with multiple shipments of feed versus transporting birds once, among other factors. Given that quality is a primary motivating factor for us, we think this arrangement is the right balance between what makes sense environmentally, and what produces the best quality bird.
