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 one pack of wingette and drumette mix. They are also known as nibbles. If you like the dark meat of chicken and chicken wings and if you like nibbling then this is made just for you. Each pack contains a few drummettes, aka. tabamoto in Japan, not to be mistaken with the much larger drumstick which comes from the leg. And a few wingettes aka. tebanaka in Japan which is the midsection of the wing. Probably the most popular recipe for chicken nibbles is honey soy chicken. All you need is honey, soy sauce, lemon juice, sesame seeds, olive oil, lemon zest, garlic, and ginger. Marinade the chicken for approx. 1h before cooking in the oven at 180 degrees Celsius (350 degrees Fahrenheit) for about 30 minutes.

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.

I use it for bone broth and pot-au-feu!

Translated from Japanese: I often use it for pot-au-feu using a pressure cooker.
I also use it to make bone broth because it’s safe meat.
It has no odor and no extra fat like the ones at the supermarket, and it always tastes great!

Full of collagen

Translated from Japanese: Thank you for always providing safe and quality meat.
The soup in which these chicken wings are stewed is rich in collagen and my skin is completely different the next day. The meat doesn’t become hard even when it’s cooled down, so I put it in my family’s lunch boxes.
The meat is tender, the fat is not greasy, and there is no odor. It’s my family’s favorite.

Translated from Japanese: It’s organic chicken, and it’s helpful that it’s already cut into pieces so it can be cooked immediately.
I’d like to order again.
