Name: Chicken Thigh
Country of Origin: Malaysia
Raised for a period of 40-45 days in a cage-free and free to roam barn (less stress, more welfare!), these Chickens are amongst the best in Singapore! They are certified to be organic, halal and free of injections of growth hormones and anti-biotics. If you have tried them before and wondered about their unique flavor, tasty skin and fats, it is in fact thanks to their special all natural diet! It is infused with lactobacilius which helps make the chicken lower in cholestrol and saturated fats. Now you know why they are so tasty!
Freshness: Always slaughtered only the night before, they are good for 3-5 days in the chiller(their gamely smell comes out on the 4th/5th day though). Frozen, they are good for 3 months!
Best way to enjoy them: Roasting them till they are crispy is a favourite of ours. The juice that drips out, the crispiness of the skin and the tasty tender flesh is just such a fantastic combo! We also like enjoy doing cordon bleu-ed style chicken as well as soy sauce and ginger soaked chicken!
The Avo Promise
Avo & Co. is about helping our customers rediscover the joy of food. This means that we want our customers to have a ""woah"" moment when they open up their box, a ""mmm..."" moment when they put a tomato or a slice of avocado in their mouth. It's also about helping our customers be all excited and looking forward to cooking whether it may be with/for someone or themselves.
On our produce, we try to get them as close to ripeness as possible before harvesting or sending it to you, so that you can taste its proper flavor (but the box should last you for 5 days to a week at least!). We also make it a point to try and not get produce when the season is just starting or ending as its flavor and price is not the best.
On packaging, we try to use as little plastic packaging as possible. (Exceptions being berries, herbs and meat.) It's higher cost and higher effort but we just wanted to do what we can along the way. (If you have problems with storage, get in touch with us, we would love to share tips!. We would also like to stress that we are not 100% plastic free at the moment! We are always looking for alternatives, so yea, feel free to hit us up with suggestions.)
We hope that you enjoy our seasonal fresh produce and that it bring you joy to receive the delivery.
