How to Use the Whole Chicken

By Caitlin Postal - Steak, scotch, and the line where the sky meets the sea.

Whether you're roasting in the oven or breaking down for multiple meals, using the whole bird is a great way to make the most of your delicious, nutrient-rich, pasture-raised chicken.

Chicken is versatile and can be used throughout the week for multiple meals. We just made the following four recipes using just one whole chicken from Clark Family Farms.

Guilt-free chicken that's as delicious as it is healthy.

1. Spicy Chicken Fajitas

Use the chicken breast for grilled chicken fajitas like these Spicy Chicken Fajitas with Chipotle Lime Crema. The classic Tex-Mex dish was inspired by the cuisine of the Tejanos residents in the Southwest.

Taiwanese Popcorn Chicken

2. Taiwanese Popcorn Chicken

The dark chicken quarters are perfect for Taiwanese Popcorn Chicken. Spice with a crunch, they're so good you'll want to keep them all to yourself.

Stuffed chicken wings

3. Stuffed Chicken Wings

Who would have thought that you could stuff a wing? Well, we did and the result is these tangy and delicious Stuffed Chicken Wings. Enjoy as an appetizer or served with warm rice for a full meal.

Chicken Pho

4. Chicken Pho

Use the leftover bones and chicken thighs to create a light and airy broth for Chicken Pho. Sweet sauces and a variety of toppings makes this tasty and nutritious. Rice noodles + cooked chicken + smooth broth = delicious.

Chicken is versatile

Mix it up by substituting chicken in your go-to recipes! Try shredded chicken in your tacos or chicken meatballs in place of beef. Not to mention, you can't go wrong with a whole roasted chicken or baked chicken breasts.

Pasture-raised chicken just tastes better, packed with rich flavor and healthy nutrients from happy birds. Show us your spread by using #crowdcow and #crowdcowchicken on social media!
