Convenient, frozen, organic chicken breasts from Costco!
I randomly decided while I was at Costco that I needed to eat organic chicken breasts after always just buying the packs of fresh, non-organic chicken breasts from the Costco meat department. I couldn’t see any fresh organic chicken breasts but did find these Frozen Yorkshire Valley Farms Organic Chicken Breasts from Costco.
I’ve reviewed lots of other chicken products from Costco like the Ready Cuisine Orange Chicken, the Costco Fresh Additions Chicken Bites, Hampton House Chicken Strips, Kirkland Signature Chicken Pot Pie, Kirkland Signature Chicken Chow Mein, Janet and Greta’s Gourmet Chicken Burgers and the super popular Ajinomoto Yakitori with Japanese Style Fried Rice.
These organic chicken breasts can be found in the freezer section at Costco and their item number is 395935.
The organic chicken breasts from Costco by Yorkshire Valley Farms are pretty good! They’re already seasoned with salt so there’s no need to add extra salt but you could marinade them or add sauces if you like.
They’re very moist tasting, salty and almost on the verge of tasting processed. I also found gristle and some hard bits in the chicken breasts. They don’t taste any different than regular, non-organic chicken breasts to me other than tasting slightly more processed. I do notice a difference between fresh and frozen with fresh being my preferred choice.
Not cheap! For nine organic frozen chicken breasts I paid $37.99 Canadian which is about ten dollars more than the fresh, non-organic Kirkland Signature chicken breasts in the meat department.
The chicken breasts come in a resealable freezer bag. You can choose to pan fry them, barbecue them or bake them in the oven. I always choose to bake my chicken breasts in the oven.
Chicken is done when it reaches 165 degrees farenheit in the middle. These are extremely convenient! You can bake them from frozen and I don’t add any oil or seasoning to them, I just pop them in a glass baking dish and stick them in the oven.
They’re great for a quick dinner and lunch. The best before date on the bag is about 11 months from the date I purchased the chicken breasts.
Three quarters of a chicken breast (125 grams) is 120 calories, zero grams of sugar or fibre, two and a half grams of fat, one gram of carbohydrates, 22 grams of protein and 620 mg of sodium.
The ingredients list is extremely short and sweet, as it should be! Chicken, water, sea salt, and flavouring.
Give it a try!
