Disclosure- I received 40 pounds of chicken as part of the US Family Guide Blogger program to facilitate my review. I received no other compensation and all opinions are 100% my own.
If you’re looking for farm fresh, natural foods, Zaycon Foods is for you. Zaycon Foods isn’t a store you can go to. Instead they have “events” all over the country where you can preorder several different food items including what I received, 40 pounds of chicken breasts. They also have events for other fresh meats including pork, beef, turkey, and fish as well as well as other fresh products.
The chicken breasts from Zaycon Foods are 100% natural with no hormones or preservatives. They come farm fresh, not frozen, in one cardboard box that contains 40 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken breasts in it. Inside each box is 4 plastic bags that each contain 10 pounds of chicken in them. This is the second time I have ordered chicken from Zaycon and I am always amazed at the size of the chicken breasts. They are HUGE, beautiful chicken breasts that each weigh about a pound. They really put all other chicken breasts to shame. And because they sell it in larger quantities they can offer it at an amazing price.

(Note how there is not much skin, fat, etc. that needs to be trimmed)
There is some prep work involved once you bring your box home. Each piece comes as a boneless, skinless butterflied breast which means it’s really 2 breast pieces the way they are naturally connected on a chicken. All you have to do when you get your chicken home is to use a sharp knife to separate the 2 breasts and clean them up a bit. I don’t like messing with raw chicken usually, but it wasn’t bad at all.

Note: It’s almost as big as my cutting board!

Once my chicken was separated into individual breasts, I portioned it into different Ziploc baggies to store it in my refrigerator and freezer. I cut some up in dices, some in strips, some in tenders, and some I left whole. Now when I want to make chicken, I can just reach in my freezer and take out a portion.

The chicken is some of the most delicious chicken I’ve ever had. It tastes so fresh. When I grilled my first batch of chicken breasts I ended up having to cut each one in half horizontally because they are so thick. Now I have learned to slice the breasts horizontally to make them cook faster.
Ordering from Zaycon Foods was easy. I signed up for a FREE account, found an event in my area, and ordered a box of chicken. The day of the event I just just had to show the receipt and I didn’t even have to get out of my car. They put down a sheet of plastic and loaded the box of chicken right in my trunk!
