Here’s how to take advantage of this deal:
:: Select the delivery location of your choice & pay for your chicken. Note that you (or your agent) must arrive at the delivery location during the delivery window. If you can’t make it, you either have to find someone to pick up the chicken for you or you have to sit out for this delivery.
I imagine this sale will sell out quickly, so make sure you order now.
For those of you who are new to Zaycon, you will go to the delivery location at the specified time, roll through the parking lot and pick up your box o’ chicken. You don’t have to leave your car.
It’s important to note that this is fresh (never frozen) chicken packaged differently than you are used to getting at the grocery store or Costco. Each box contains four plastic bags with 10 pounds of chicken each. Once you get home, you will have to do a bit of fat trimming, which is easy with a knife or pair of kitchen shears. You will then have to either prepare freezer meals or package the chicken in meal sized portions and freeze them. It took me about two hours to wash, trim and package my chicken the last time I purchased the box. I kind of felt like Caroline Ingalls…okay, not really. I was watching TV the entire time.
The chicken does not contain added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients and is fresh (never been frozen). This chicken is similar to regular grocery store chicken breast and is not organic.
Zaycon Foods is planning to deliver chicken breast again in the fall. If your family won’t use 40 pounds of chicken over the summer and early fall, split the box with a friend or two! Go here to create your Zaycon account.
