Summertime means cooking outdoors to keep the house cool. For your next meal, try slow-grilling a free range broiler chicken from 4 D Acres. Our birds come ready for cooking. They are not injected with water or other filler liquids, and you’ll find them to be very flavorful. There is not a lot of fat on the birds either.
To slow grill a whole chicken, thaw in the refrigerator, then rinse inside and out. Lightly salt the inside of the bird cavity with coarse sea salt as well as the outside. Add pepper if desired. Leave the skin on as it will help retain the bird’s moisture as it cooks. Place on the top rack of your gas grill over low heat and let cook for about 1 ½ to 2 hours. Check periodically after one hour of cooking time. This low and slow cooking will give you a tender, juicy, and flavorful main dish for your next meal. You will see the skin begin to pull away from the bone as it approaches doneness.
The USDA cooking recommendation is to cook chicken to 165°F using a digital food thermometer and is best measured at the thickest part of the inner thigh. Our free range broiler chickens are also great fried or broiled. They are available for shipping to your residence or for pick up at 4 D Acres.
