Last week while at Costco I decided to try out their frozen organic chicken breasts and review them, they’re definitely not cheap and I usually buy the slabs of fresh Costco Kirkland Signature chicken breasts but I was feeling a bit fancy and decided to buy organic. Today I’m reviewing the Yorkshire Valley Farms Organic Chicken Breasts from the freezer aisle. Item number 395935.
I paid 37.99 Canadian for the bag of frozen chicken breasts. Definitely more expensive than the regular fresh chicken breasts by about $10.
These are so convenient! When I buy the flats of fresh chicken I have to package them for the freezer, take them out to thaw and then season them before baking.I just threw the frozen organic chicken breasts in a dish and baked them, I didn’t add any oil or salt.The chicken needs to be kept frozen and the best before date is about 11 months from the date I bought them. To cook the chicken breasts you can choose to pan-fry, bake or grill them. I chose to bake them, so I cooked them at 350 degrees farenheit in my oven for about 40 minutes.
3/4 of a chicken breast is 120 calories, two and a half grams of fat, one gram of carbohydrates, 22 grams of protein, 620 mg of sodium and zero grams of fibre and sugar. I wish they were a little lower in sodium! These are Non-GMO, grain fed, raised without antibiotics, pesticide and herbicide free and have no animal by-products.
These do taste a bit different than the fresh chicken breasts that I buy from Costco (I did a taste test at the same time), they also look a lot different too. They’re much flatter and did taste more moist and tender than the non-organic fresh chicken breasts, almost on the verge of tasting a little more processed than I’d expect. They’re already salted so no need to add additional salt but you could season them as you wish, I didn’t find them overly salty.
Overall I enjoyed these and recommend them for individuals looking for an organic chicken option at Costco, I will happily use up my expensive organic chicken breasts while my husband eats the regular ones!
Do you buy organic meat? Do you notice any difference in taste?
