Organic chicken for less than three dollars a pound? Oh yes, organic chicken for less than three dollars a pound! Trader Joe's Organic Chicken Family Pack is six pieces of fresh, organic chicken - two split breasts and four drumsticks, for a mere $2.99 a pound. Organic chicken can be pretty pricey, but by combining the more expensive breast meat with the less expensive (but super moist & flavorful) drumsticks, we're able to bring you this very value-driven price on best-in-class organic chicken.
Our supplier is a well-respected organic poultry producer whose free range chickens are raised in the strictest accordance with U.S. organic regulations - these regulations include a diet of certified organic, vegetarian feed, and never treating the animals with antibiotics - resulting in great tasting chicken that cooks up juicy and tender either on the grill or in the oven. Marinate it in our Salsa Verde, or baste it with barbecue sauce - we have several from which to choose. Because this chicken still has its skin and is on the bone, it's really excellent on the grill, making it the ideal chicken to take you into the warm, summer months.
Our price of $2.99 a pound is a truly excellent value for organic chicken, no matter how you cook it. You'll find Trader Joe's Organic Chicken Family Pack in our fresh meat case.
