Examples of Flavor Profiles:
lemon, garlic and rosemary
lime, peppers and cilantro
oranges, brown sugar and thyme
As I always tell you, play with the combinations of flavors and do what your family likes.
Now, stewing chickens has to be the easiest way to cook a chicken.
1)Take your heritage chicken and place it in a stockpot covering with
broth or water.
2)Next, choose your flavor profile and add to your stockpot.
Basic- onion, garlic and celery
Mexican-limes, jalapeño peppers and cilantro
*Note- you can use a beer or 2 to replace some of the broth or water
Italian-olive oil, garlic and basil
Asian-ginger, soy sauce, garlic, sesame and szechuan peppers
Indian- curries, turmeric, cumin, ginger and garlic
Greek-lemon, thyme, oregano and olives
European-wine, thyme, rosemary, marjoram and sage
As always, pick flavors your family likes. Be creative and play around with it and create something for your family.
3)Bring the pot to a boil over medium to high heat. Reduce the heat until the pot simmers.
4) Simmer the chicken until the chicken is done. A 3-to4-pound broiler cooks in 60 to 75 minutes to cook thoroughly. The chicken will begin to separate from the bones when it is fully cooked.
5) Remove the chicken from the pot. Allow chicken to cool just enough to be able to work with it with your hands, pull chicken off bones and
tear into bite size pieces.
6)Divide into meal-sized portions and use in your families favorite recipes.
Note: The chicken can be stored in the refrigerator for three to four days or in freezer in food storage bags for up to four months.
