The PCC Deli roasted chickens begin with Northwest-grown free-range birds raised on GMO-free feed. The obvious use is to eat it up with a side salad, but with a bit of creativity, you can get more from these birds than a single meal.

Meal 1: Braised Kale & Chickpeas

Slice the white meat

With a satisfyingly smoky side dish with lots of texture, a smaller amount of meat rounds off the meal nicely. Try a slice of chicken with a big helping of Braised Kale with Chickpeas and Smoked Paprika, and you’ll have a great dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes.

Meal 2: Quick Soba Stir-fry
