Cooking Tips

Seasoning: Our chicken has a great taste, but it can be enhanced with seasoning. Consider marinating the chicken in a mixture of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs for added flavor.

Temperature: It's important to cook chicken to an internal temperature of 165°F to ensure it is safe to eat. Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature and avoid overcooking.

Cooking Method: You've got so many options - grilling, sautéing, baking, frying!

Resting: After cooking, let the chicken rest for a few minutes before slicing it. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a juicier and more flavorful meal.

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.”

FAQs

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.

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.

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.
