Tastes Like Heritage Chicken


| 9/1/2009 10:34:37 AM


On April 17, 2009, the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC) and Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch hosted an event in Lindsborg, Kans., announcing the definition of heritage chicken. The event included tasting meat of four breeds of heritage chickens. The tasting was divided into a meal (including side dishes) for each season, because different breeds of chickens mature at different rates and the meat is better suited to different uses depending on the maturity of the bird at slaughter.

Here’s an overview of the menu. Some of the recipes are available on the recipe page of the Good Shepherd Poultry Ranch website.

Fall — New Hampshire Red
Fried Chicken
Chicken Osso Buco

Winter — Jersey Giant
Baked Chicken
Tropical Mole’ Chicken

Spring — Cornish (Indian Game)
Cottage Pie
Chicken Soup with Knaidlach
