2 Free Range Chicken Recipes That Will Keep You Warm This Winter

We know that eco- and health-conscious consumers have been making the transition toward sustainable meats such as free-range chicken. If you've recently purchased some free-range meat for sale online for use in some hearty winter meals, cooking it properly is the key to bringing out its many delicious flavor profiles. Here are just two chicken recipes that are perfect for those extra chilly winter nights.

Roast Chicken with Herb Butter

This four-serving recipe results in the perfect balance of juicy, savory chicken with a crispy outer layer of skin that your whole family will love. As inspired by “The Family Dinner” cookbook by Laurie David, it received positive reviews from chefs of all skill levels. It's versatile and can be paired with any number of delicious sides, from mashed potatoes to pastas, vegetables, and more. It does take some time to prepare and cook, seeing as you'll have to make the herb butter, chicken, and sauce all separately. That being said, it incorporates a marvelous mixture of herbs, including, sage, thyme, rosemary, garlic, and black pepper. If you have the time to dedicate to making this recipe properly, it's absolutely worth it. The full recipe is available at Once Upon A Chef.

White Chicken Chili

This recipe was intended to simplify the cooking process by calling for a cooked rotisserie chicken, but you can use any type of  free-range chicken you have available, provided that it's fully cooked and shredded. This winter comfort food recipe is perfect for providing heat on multiple levels. It has a bit of a kick to it, and can be spiced up even more by keeping the poblano jalapeno pepper seeds in the dish as it cooks. Fortunately, this recipe is a one-pot recipe, which means it can usually be ready in under an hour.

On average, Americans consume 90 pounds of chicken every year, and for good reason. Chicken is one of the most versatile and hearty foods available, making it perfect for any wintertime dish.
