Zaycon Fresh-Chicken Pick Up

Zaycon Fresh is a delivery service of meats directly from the farms to a parking lot near you. Their meats are antibiotic and hormone free, and since it comes directly from the farms, the costs are lower than supermarket prices.
I discovered Zaycon Fresh from a You Tuber, She’s in Her Apron.  In one of her videos, she opened up a case of boneless chicken breasts and prepped them for future meals.

The meats aren’t available all of the time. You put your location in their website and you’ll get a list of the different meats and when they’re available in your area. Their deliveries are usually once a month to a single location. I was able to get a case (40 lbs) of boneless chicken breasts for $1.69/lb. An unbelievable price for boneless chicken breasts. I put my order in during July for an October 12th pick up.
I picked up my case and split it 20/20 with a friend of mine. It came in four 10 lbs bags.

I cleaned them up and ziplocked them for the freezer.

I made 2 baggies of sliced cutlets (5 breasts each) for grilled chicken or breaded cutlets, and 2 baggies whole breasts (3 XL breasts each) for other meals (I can slice them for stir frys, fajitas and rice dishes or boil and shred them for soups, enchiladas, quesadillas or pot pies).

I had 2 large breasts left over, so I’m preparing them for dinner tonight.

I’m making BBQ Chicken and Potato Casserole.  It’s a paleo dish I found on a website called Carrots n Cake.

It uses shredded chicken, so I’m boiling them in water with celery, carrots, onions and bay leaves. I’ll be saving the liquid as stock for soups!

I then shredded the chicken and waited for my potatoes to boil.

When they were done, I mashed them and added salt and butter and then layered the bottom of a baking dish with them.

I added BBQ sauce to the chicken and layered that on top of the potatoes.

Then I baked it at 350 degrees for about 15-20 mins.

When it was all hot and bubbly, I garnished it with chopped onions and cilantro.  It was soooooo good!

A dish I will definately make again! And I got some stock out of it for another dish……win, win!

Enjoy 🙂
