Every year, TC Farm puts in time to make our animals healthier and tastier. We introduced our Cornish Cross chickens in 2018 to offer them in addition to our Red Rangers. This year, we focused on improving a few things with our Cornish Cross chickens:
It was pretty clear to us that the birds were even healthier looking and more active than normal. Amazing full feathers and beautiful birds!
The one thing we didn't quite expect was that the breasts were much larger. For the future, we plan to have the birds a bit smaller and package them differently.
In the meantime, here are a few tips for thawing and cooking our larger Cornish Cross breasts:
In the future, we'll work on raising them a bit smaller and, now that we know the size, we will be bundling them one breast to a package for more manageable portion sizes in the package.
We keep trying to do what we do better all the time! We're really happy with this change and think you will be too. But for those of you who have ordered them in the past and might be expecting something different, we wanted to let you know about the breast size as soon as we knew!!
We would love to hear what you think about the new Cornish Cross breasts once you've had a chance to make a couple meals of your own!
