You get 4-5 boneless chicken thighs in a convenient 500g vacuum pack. The chicken is naturally slow grown and therefore the meat is much healthier, better formed, tastier, and juicier than commodity chicken.
Chicken thigh meat is darker and has more flavor and is juicer compared to chicken breast. Japanese kara-age (fried chicken) is made from thigh meat. Use them with or without the skin. Skinless has proven to be a healthier option. Use the chicken thigh for slow cooking, baking, bbq, and grilling. You can also bread and deep fry them. We love to marinate the chicken thighs with sea salt, black pepper, paprika powder, lemon juice, garlic powder or crushed garlic and olive oil. Frypan and serve with rice and mixed veggies.
Free-range, open pasture-raised certified organic chicken from New Zealand. Naturally and sustainably slow-grown with love and care on certified organic apple orchards in Hawke's Bay. The happy chicken roam and forage freely as nature intended. No antibiotics, no growth hormones, no GMO feed, no chlorine washing. The feed and the land are free of any synthetic chemicals. Certified organic is not only good for you but most importantly good for the environment. Bostock Brothers organic chicken is the only certified organic chicken farm in all of New Zealand.
Due to bilateral agreements, this chicken is only certified organic in New Zealand. Japanese JAS organic is being applied for and in process.

Translated from Japanese: In fact, most free-range chicken is a fraud. Among all the fake free-range chicken, I was able to deliver true free-range chicken to a friend of mine! And it was wonderfully quickly shipped, too. It was a good gift that my friend will appreciate and use, so I’d like to order it again as a gift for another friend.
Translated from Japanese: I keep ordering it over and over again because it works so well in so many different dishes!
It has no smell, no acridity, and tastes great!
Translated from Japanese: I enjoyed it very much.
I will order again.
All of the chicken we have tried from Bostock Brothers has been absolutely delicious! These thighs are so tender, juicy, and meaty! Great value for high quality chicken! These thighs are equally good in grilled dishes, baked dishes, or stews and soups. We leave the skin on for added nutrition, and even that is delcious!
Translated from Japanese: My body accepts only very carefully selected ingredients due to my allergies, and I’ve always been looking for meat that is safe to eat on a regular basis. At first, I was attracted to the safety of this product and bought it because of that, but I was surprised that the taste was very delicious, too. I like to simply season it with salt and sake, or steam it in salted koji. The juices are also very delicious because they have no odor. I’ll continue ordering it on a regular basis. Thank you, Horizon Farms, for the wonderful product!
