Kosher Heritage Chicken Cooking Guide
Due to the superior genetics of heritage breed chickens they're much more active and slower growing than today's supermarket bird. That means that their muscles are more toned and so require a longer cooking time than the birds you're probably used to cooking. In order to withstand these longer cooking times heritage chickens must be cooked with moisture at either the beginning or end or a recipe and usually benefit from lower cooking temperatures. Follow the recipes below to ensure that your kosher heritage bird comes out tender and delicious.
