Note that organic chicken meat tends to have red or brown coloring around the bones even after cooking. This is not blood, rather it is proteins called myoglobin and hemoglobin which are predominantly found in healthy free-range chicken that exercise and move a lot. There are no safety or quality concerns. Brining the chicken 24h prior to cooking in a salt solution helps reduce the visual impact.
You get 500g of organic chicken wings, known as tebasaki in Japan. Chicken wings are an all-time classic. Whether you like to cover them in bbq sauce, a homemade seasoning, or just a little sea salt and freshly ground pepper, chicken wings are always welcomed.

Have been buying chicken wings from Horizon Farms for 3 years now and have been consistently satisfied with the quality of the product. We bake the wings in the oven and the flavour is definitely better than what we can get at the supermarket.
I loved these wings baked. I bought it a couple of times already and will surely buy it again. ❤️
Translated from Japanese: I was amazed at how big these wings were!
They were very tasty. My family was fighting over them.
Translated from Japanese: It’s a slightly large chicken wing.
I put it in soup with various vegetables.
It was also delicious in Thai curry.
I like chicken wings because I eat a lot of meat.
My dog also loves chicken wings.
He always runs into the kitchen like crazy when he smells it.
Translated from Japanese: I always reorder this. This time, I simply seasoned it with salt and pepper and had it grilled, but if the meat is delicious, even a simple seasoning like this is delicious!
