Everything you need to know about our favourite meat!
Of all the meats available in the market, chicken is the most versatile and loved. It can be whipped up into a decadent curry for a family dinner or added to waffles for a protein-rich breakfast. To some, chicken is just chicken, but to those who have been cooking chicken for a while, they know that factors such as freshness, weight and cut affect the taste and flavour of the dish. If you’re looking to buy chicken online here’s everything you need to know.
What are the different cuts of chicken that you can get when you buy chicken online?
There are many cuts of chicken available online. The first and most popular in Indian households is the chicken curry cut. When you buy the chicken curry cut from Licious, you get a combination of both dark and white meat. In the chicken curry cut small pack, you will get
- One leg (cut into two)
- One wing without tip (because the tip cannot be used)
- One breast without bone
The Chicken breast boneless cut is yet another favourite. If you plan on pan-frying, grilling, baking your chicken, then this is an excellent cut. The great part of this cut is that it is easy to cook. It is skinless, boneless, and has a supple texture. It’s also a great source of lean protein which is why it’s a favourite among many fitness enthusiasts. You can buy chicken breast boneless by clicking here.
Apart from this, you can also get a chicken drumstick cut and thigh. When you buy the Licious Chicken thigh cut, you get bone-in skinless pieces of chicken that is meatier and juicy. This cut is ideal for slow cooking.
Get the chicken lollipop for a feasty meaty treat of tasty and flavorful chicken. This tender meat is best enjoyed when seasoned with spices and grilled or fried.
Last but not least, you can also get a whole chicken and cut it down to your preference; however, this isn’t convenient and quite time-consuming.
How to tell if the chicken you buy online is fresh?
When buying chicken online here are a few ways to check its freshness.
Colour test: The first way to assess the freshness of chicken is to check its colour. If the flesh of the chicken has a pinkish tinge, then you can rest assured that the chicken you purchased is fresh. If the chicken has a greyish tinge to it, then the chicken has been lying around for a while.
Texture: When you poke the chicken, the flesh must spring back. That’s how you know that the chicken is fresh. If when poked, the flesh tends to remain stiff and is soft to feel, then it is stale.
Smell: Perhaps the biggest giveaway is the smell of the meat. Stale chicken tends to have an unpleasant and foul odour, whereas fresh chicken has no smell.
