One pack of certified organic pasture-raised free-range chicken tenders, also known as chicken fingers or chicken tenderloins. Chicken tenderloins sit below the chicken breasts and taste very much like chicken breasts. Like tenderloin in beef, chicken tenderloins are slightly more tender and juicier. Because there are only two small tenderloins per chicken the cost of production is more expensive than breast meat. The most popular cooking method is chicken fingers or garlic butter. Note that the typical tough sinew found in chicken tenders has not been removed and we recommend removing it before cooking.
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: It's soft, has no odor, and is very delicious!
I wrapped it with eggplant, perilla, and pickled plums and ate it as harumaki (spring roll)!
Translated from Japanese: I boiled it before eating and I'm glad it didn't smell.
Since it’s frozen, I think it’s easier to use in small quantities because the pieces are frozen separately.
Translated from Japanese: It's very delicious.
I also give it to my dog.
Translated from Japanese: I have bought it many times. It's very soft and delicious.
It can be used for various dishes.
