it could be the glycine in skin and tendons and cartilage, or other substances present only in cartilage (chondroitin etc.). But it could also be vitamin K2, which is more abundant in chicken than in other meats. Whole chicken is underappreciated... (more)

There is currently no FDA definition for the term "All Natural". It is a BS marketing ploy of the food industry.

I have made gizzards differently multiple times and have enjoyed them each time, but I was wondering what other people do when they cook theirs. Just looking for new recipes is all. Thanks!

I have made a chicken curry from a couple different Paleo recipes and they always have so much liquid left over. Normally I would use rice with my curry dish but since that isn't really ideal option what else could I use?

Thank you for all the input. I am still kind of confused. How do I know white rice is ok in moderation but brown isn't? I guess I will figure it out.

Nutritionally, chicken and turkey are nothing special. In fact, other than a little B12, they don't offer much more than plants in terms of nutrients (well, plants offer nearly everything but B12, so you could say they're pretty good). They're... (more)

No, chicken doesn't really offer anything unique, unlike fish (omega-3s), beef (iron and zinc), and pork (thiamine).

I baked a chicken thigh (~1lbs) for 40 mins @ 350?? and it was too raw... what are the correct settings?

BobK 0 · November 22, 2013 at 5:26 AM

If baked in close quarters; small / deep dish time will need to be longer than if in a shallower dish...... but in any case 40 minutes is pretty short. check out this link... http://bit.ly/I70DmW

Duck eggs are more easily digestible than chicken eggs and haven't been through the history of genetic modification like most all chickens. I say go for it if you have access to duck eggs.
