Description

What is KINSOU-DORI Chicken? 

Well, its the Morgan Ranch Beef, but for chicken. This is what you have been looking for when you prefer healthy, hormone-free chicken. KINSOU-DORI is free range chicken in Japan, which means they live a happy life until they land on your plate. These 2kg birds are huge and have a much fresher taste than common chicken. KINSOU-DORI is known for a pinker breast, firmer texture, and fuller chicken flavor.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS

If you have never tried KINSOU-DORI in Japan, then this is your time! Ideal for oven roasting or butterflying on the grill!  

You can season this bird generously with all the spices you like. I remember that my mother used a lot of mustard to bath the chicken, giving it a nice spicy touch, but that part is all up to you. 


1. Preheat oven to about 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. Place chicken in a roasting pan, and season generously inside and out with salt, pepper and anything else you like.

3. Place some butter, onions and sliced apples in the chicken cavity.

4. Bake uncovered for up to 1 hour and 15 minutes in the preheated oven, to a minimum internal temperature of 180 degrees F (82 degrees C). Remove from heat, and baste with melted margarine and drippings. Cover with aluminum foil, and allow to rest about 30 minutes before serving.

(Caution: Cooking times depend on the device you use! )


Leftovers like bones and cartilage can be used to make lots and lots of your own stock which can be frozen and used in plenty of other dishes long after this bird is already gone. 

In Depth

The term Kin-sou, roughly translates to, Rich and Refreshing. Throw the Dori at the end of it and you've got a rich refreshing bird! 
Japanese is quite easy once you get down to it. 

Kinsou-Dori Chicken is raised right here in Aichi-Ken, so it's locally sourced. 

You won't find chicken of this flavor at your local supermarket and certainly not for these prices!
Stock the freezer!

Thawing

The thawing time depends on many factors such as size, weight, packaging, and type of meat. Please refer to our thawing chart ≫here≪

きちんと処理され、丈夫な袋で包装されて届きます。塩&砂糖水に漬け込んでオーブンで焼きました。皮の香ばしさと肉汁の旨味に大満足。手間がかからないのに見栄えがよく、そして美味しい。パーティでなくても食べたい。

I love roast chicken! My Mom use to roast one once a week when I was kid. I try and do one once a month. The crisp skin is wonderful as is the breast meat and the wings!!! OH SO DELISH! Then we take the carcass and simmer it in pot with onion, carrots, and celery and make SUPER stock that we freeze and use for other recipes. I rarely have to buy grocery store broth/stock! WIN WIN!
