I didn’t order any Zaycon chicken when it came to town recently because I thought I still had plenty.
Then, as I was adding (many) bags of pre-cooked ground beef to my upright freezer, I started to panic when I realized I maybe should have ordered another forty pounds.
I was down to only five meals worth of chicken!!!
Panic . . . because that’s how I roll.
What if we run out and I end up paying . . . like . . . three dollars a pound for chicken until they come again!!!???
Then, on Friday, I got an email saying they were doing a quick delivery in my area. Order by Sunday, pick up on Monday.
Soooo, obviously I’ll be trimming and bagging chicken tomorrow. Might as well embrace the chicken recipes this week.
Monday – Grilled Chicken Breasts
Wednesday – Baked Penne with Beef
Thursday – Fajitas (chicken)
Friday – Out to Eat
Saturday – Spinach Artichoke Pizza with . . . chicken.
Sunday – Potato Soup (no chicken)
Here’s the video in which I show how I package and freeze FORTY pounds of chicken:
Not sure what “Zaycon chicken” is? They sell various products (mostly meat) in large quantities for great prices. They make deliveries at different times to different areas, and you go pick up your order at a specific time. You can sign up to be on their e-mail list to get notifications when they’re coming to your area.
I am so sorry to say that it seems Zaycon has gone out of business. I say “seems” because the information I’ve seen says they’ve “suspended” operations and I don’t fully understand what is happening. I’m so so sad about this since this will change how our family keeps our freezer stocked with meat. We’ve been ordering almost all of our chicken, bacon, and shrimp for them for more than five years. If you had ordered recently, I recommend that you call your credit card company or bank (for debit cards) to see what can be done. I’ve heard many people have had success doing this.
What’s on your menu for the week?
