We're here to make your week night dinners easy 🥘 🥘 Whole Roasted Chicken (family style!)🥘 🥘 1 Whole Chicken ½ c avocado oil ½ c BB All Purpose Dry Rub (check it out on our blog!) 1 whole garlic bulb cut in half butcher's twine (approximately 6" long) optional 🗒️ 🗒️ 🗒️ 🗒️ Instructions Preheat oven to 375°F. Throughly dry chicken inside and outside with paper towels. In a mixing bowl combine avocado oil and all purpose dry rub to make a wet rub. Massage wet rub on the outside and inside of the chicken. Stuff chicken with halved garlic bulb. Tie chicken legs together with butcher's twine. This step is optional not necessary. Place chicken (breast side up), on roasting rack placed on a baking sheet. Place in oven and roast for 30 minutes. Then reduce heat to 350°F, baste chicken and continue to roast for 1 hour, or until meat thermometer reads 165°F when inserted into the thickest part of the thigh but not touching the bone. Let chicken rest for 10 minutes before serving.
ButcherBox has a monthly subscription model where you can choose pre-picked boxes of beef, chicken and pork or customize your delivery from a plethora of premium meat options. They pride themselves on the quality of their meats including grass-fed and grass-finished beef, heritage-breed pork and free-range organic chicken. All of their shipping is free and their meats total out to about $6 a meal on most of their plans. I personally use this service, and absolutely love it.
All of the meat comes frozen with thawing instructions on the packaging, and it’s all very high-quality and easy to cook. They’ve also got one of the widest selections out there of meat, pork, chicken and fish out of all the meat delivery services I’ve perused. You can get everything from chicken thighs to scallops to shrimp and filet mignon steaks.
You can choose exactly what’s in your box each and every month and canceling is easy (although I have yet to do that). They source all of their food from farmers who don’t use hormones or antibiotics, who feed their animals high-quality food and are dedicated to sustainable farming practices.
Your order is shipped in an eco-friendly box and the freezing inside works quite well – I’ve never had anything arrive thawed in the slightest and never gotten sick from anything. It’s a high-quality service and this intro deal is hard to beat. If you’re stressed about the Thanksgiving rush this year — I highly recommend signing up for this service and taking advantage. The turkeys will be between 10-14 pounds and will be delivered along with your first meat delivery box.
