This past April, Zaycon Foods, a company that brings fresh meats and other products direct to consumers at wholesale prices came to Raleigh for the first time ever.
And I ordered a unit of chicken. The chicken is boneless, skinless, fresh (never frozen), 100% natural with no added hormones, additives, or artificial ingredients. And it is below my $1.99/lb price point. This time around it is $1.84 a pound!
Many of you ordered too. Have you already run out of chicken from that last sale? Or did you miss out due to the event selling out? Well. . .Zaycon is coming back to Raleigh in October. They are also coming to Garner, Cary, Durham, Sanford, Rocky Mt, Burlington,
Fayetteville, Greensboro, Kinston, High Point, Roanoke, Greenville,
Lumberton, and Winston-Salem. You can check here for exact locations around the country.
The minimum amount of chicken you can order is 1 unit which is 40 pounds. If this is too much for you and your family, perhaps you can split the box with a friend.
The chicken comes in a box like below. You do not even have to get out of your car when you
go for pick up; you just drive up and they hand you your box of chicken.
However, you do need to preorder.
Inside one 40 pound box are 4 bags like below. As I shared above, the chicken comes fresh; it has never been frozen.
Each bag has 8 of these huge chicken breasts in it:
the box, I ended up with 16 Ziploc bags of chicken, each with 5-6
chicken breasts in them. Now what I counted as 1 chicken breast was
actually a 1/4 of what is on that plate above. They were just so large,
that I cut them.
When I buy 40 lbs of chicken at the grocery store, I get about 60 large chicken breasts. From this Zaycon order of 40 lbs of chicken, I got 85 medium chicken breasts. And this chicken is
fresh (never frozen), 100% natural with no added hormones, additives, or artificial ingredients. I was super pleased.
took me about 1 1/2 hours to wash the chicken, trim the fat from it,
and cut it into smaller pieces. And then put 5-6 pieces in a Ziploc bag.
Some I just left plain and stuck in Ziploc bags (see picture above). I will use this chicken to make:
Crockpot BBQ Chicken
Crockpot Chicken Fajitas
Foiled Baked Asian Chicken
Cheese and Herb Stuffed Chicken
Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken
I went ahead and poured some marinade over it. I used Italian dressing in some,
BBQ sauce in some, and then some Frank's Wing Sauce in some.

Here's all my chicken in the freezer. You do not need a large extra freezer to store this much chicken.
If you want to order some chicken, click HERE. That is my referral link. I get $1 credit for everyone that signs up thru me. But even if I did not get a $1 credit, I would be telling you about this deal. $1.84 is a great price for boneless, skinless chicken. . especially chicken straight from the butcher with no additives, hormones, or artificial ingredients! I tell you, I only share on my blog what I would share with my girlfriends in real life. (The truth is, many of you are one in the same).
I know this chicken event is not until late October, but many locations sell out before the pick up date so I would order now. I just placed my order.
And don't worry, even if you do not live in Raleigh, Zaycon has many locations.Check them out here.
