The first question here should be - what kind of chicken am I looking for? Many of you know already know that I put a lot of care and effort in my cooking. My recipes are always prepared with care, thought and love. The best ingredients for a tasty dish. However, my food is not simply put together in the kitchen - I already start the "cooking" in my head when I write up my shopping list. I give a lot of thought to the types of products that make their way into my shopping cart.
I support organic products, CSA, free-range and my local Farmer's Market with a passion. That's my quality seal! I do it not because I am a food snob. I do it because I know it tastes better, it is healthier and I do it because, as a meat eater, I want to be sure that the dish I have prepared is not from an animal that has been tormented.
Note: Now before a few of you die-hard Vegetarians and Vegans start to crucify me with your usual comments (I've had them often enough on this blog), just remember it is my choice to eat meat. Please do not judge my character and my entire background (as it has happened previously) by this fact.
I am responsible for the meat I eat and because I have made the choice to eat meat, just like all of the other ingredients, I want to make sure it comes from a "good" source.
Chicken is the main meat source in our kitchen. A battery chicken or eggs from a battery hen will never make it's way into my kitchen, because it goes against all my beliefs. And I am willing to pay the extra cent. That is why I am supporting Kate's awareness event Let Them Eat Chicken. A little late but she kindly invited to join me in the after-dinner party.
Later this week check back for the wonderful recipe of this popular, creamy Indian chicken dish.
But I ask you how do you like your chicken?
