Zaycon Fresh Chicken: My Experience

*Disclaimer*   This post is full of raw chicken but there's no chance of getting salmonella from it! :-)

I did something a couple weeks ago I never thought I'd do.
(Although my husband's probably not surprised!)

I bought chicken.

In a church parking lot.

From the back of a truck.

Now, mind you, I ordered this chicken on purpose & "the truck" was a rather large refrigerated truck full of boxes chicken for me and a bunch of other people. :-)

Have you ever heard of Zaycon Fresh Food?  I kept hearing how amazing & fresh the chicken is & how much you get for your money.  This was my first time to order Zaycon Fresh Chicken & I wasn't sure how the process was going to work.

Zaycon Fresh doesn't offer all the food all the time.  So when I saw the 40lb. box of boneless, skinless chicken breasts were back up, I started looking for a coupon code but there weren't any available at that time, so I kept waiting.  A deal finally popped up to purchase at $1.49/lb!  Score!  Each pickup location has a preset delivery date & time window, so I chose the location closest to me where I wanted to pick up & that's it.  Now we wait.  I waited a couple weeks until my delivery date came up.

The pickup was SUPER EASY!  I drove to my designated location, there were signs in the parking lot telling you exactly where to go & I got in line.  I was probably 7 cars back & the distribution went quickly.  I pulled up, told the delivery person my name, he told another person how many boxes to pull for me, they loaded it directly into my trunk on top of a plastic liner & that's it...I was done!

I got home with my big box of chicken & we dug right in.  There were 4 big bags of chicken in the box.  The box was lined with a thick blue plastic, so although the individual bags of chicken inside weren't sealed shut, there was no spillage through the box.

I grabbed a glass of wine & my freshly sharpened Henckels knife & got to work!  While I did leave some of the breasts whole, I was able to fillet most of them in half or thirds!  That's a lot of chicken!  I cut the chicken & Bo bagged the chicken in lots of freezer bags.  We filled each bag with about 5 chicken breasts so we can just grab 1 bag at a time when we're ready to make a meal!  All in all, it took about an hour from start to finish.  Not too bad.

Grabbing a bag of chicken that's already cut to size & has all the fat trimmed has been pretty nice.  I think I'd definitely order from Zaycon Fresh again if we ever run out of chicken! ;-)  Now to start gathering lots of chicken recipes!  Please feel free to send LOTS of recipes my way if you have a favorite!
