I love to eat clean, I do not always succeed, but I love the difference that it makes in the way things taste and in the way I feel, when I do eat well. Foster Farms knows this is important so they are sponsoring this article to tell you what I think about their new Organic and Simply Raised products.
Foster Farms has been family owned and operated since 1939 and they are the West Coast’s leading poultry producer, with me being a second generation California girl, it is the only chicken I trust for my family. It’s the only chicken my mom used, and she was a great cook!
Now, with the introduction of their new Simply Raised and Organic fresh chicken line there is something for everyone from Foster Farms. Whether you eat only antibiotic free, organic or just like to eat more local and with less processing Foster Farms is for you.
As people are learning that the way their food is raised matters in the way it tastes and nutrition, the more they know it makes a difference. They want a chicken that is less processed and raised humanely without antibiotics. Simply Raised from Foster Farms fits that bill perfectly.
I am always amazed at the difference in taste that things have from being bought pre-made and making them myself from scratch at home.
I was able to find the Foster Farms Simply Raised at my local grocery store and I was so excited to try it in a recipe I have been eating since I was a child. There are some things that just take a person back to their childhood and my moms chicken and rice made with Foster Farms Chicken is one of those things. To be able to make it with the Simply Raised chicken is such a treat! She used to make it with quick cooking white rice and a whole chicken that she cut up herself. I use chicken breasts personally, as I like white meat chicken and I also use the brown rice.
All of Foster Farms chickens are:
- American Humane Certified
- 100 percent natural (minimally processed, no additives or preservatives, steroids or hormones)
- Produced with no added sodium
- Delivered fresh within 48 hours
- Locally grown: Fresh & Natural and Simply Raised are locally grown throughout CA, OR, and WA; Organic is locally grown in CA
Pure chicken, nothing added, nothing taken away, and the chickens were treated humanely while being raised. These are important facets to the way I want to feed my family. You can find Simply Raised antibiotic free chicken in your supermarkets now Organic is in Costco and select grocery stores. I can’t think of anything better, an improved product from a company that I already know and trust. Here is the recipe my mom always made, pick up some Foster Farms Chicken and try it for your family soon!
Moms Chicken and Rice (Improved)
6 Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken breasts
1 can each of cream of celery, chicken and mushroom soup
1 can of fat free chicken stock
3 Cups of Quick Cooking Brown Rice
Mix the 3 soups, the stock and the brown rice in the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Arrange chicken on top of the bed of rice and soups. Salt, pepper and garlic powder on top of the chicken. I then add a small amount of butter to each piece of chicken and put in a 350 degree oven for one hour. Make sure you use a thermometer to make sure the chicken is done.
I serve with a vegetable or salad and dinner is done!
