You get 500g (1.1lbs) of ground chicken/mince. We use the whole chicken breast - nothing else. This may be the cleanest, the purest, healthiest ground chicken in Japan. The chicken is ethically raised and naturally slow grown and therefore the meat is much healthier, tastier, and juicier than commodity chicken.
Ground chicken equals chicken burgers. Our top favorite and a fantastic way to save the day with a quick and healthy meal. The pack defrosts within 30 min in cold water. We like to mix the ground chicken with ground pepper, sea salt, hot sauce, lemon juice, and paprika powder and form into 3 burger patties and cook them with olive oil in the fry-pan over medium heat. The burgers are juicy and taste amazing just the way they are! If you want to have the full deal, use tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, and freshly made avocado sauce. Don't forget the burger buns. If you like it hot and spicy try chicken burgers with authentic harissa sauce.

Translated from Japanese: I've bought it several times now and it's convenient to use for everything.
I divide it into equal portions and use it before it’s half defrosted.
It’s very useful because it can be used for anything.
At this time of the year, I often use it for eggplant with hot spicy sauce.
I personally think it’s best suited in keema curry.
This is the best chicken mince I’ve tried. Juicy and tender, with a very nice flavour. Can really see and taste the difference compared to other chicken mince I’ve tried. Fast to thaw in cold water then cooked on the pan to make nachos. It’s a lot of chicken so the value is great.
Translated from Japanese: I was looking for something safe and finally found it.
I hate meat, but this is delicious. I bought it to make hamburgers.
When I run out, I'll order again. This is my second purchase already.
Translated from Japanese: Made delicious keema curry and chicken soboro bowl.
I will order again.
Translated from Japanese: It’s delicious and without any odor. Originally, I hate meat in general, but I can eat this. I will order again next time.
