zaycon foods truck My Zaycon Foods Experience!

If you follow me on Instagram (and you should!), you may have seen that I picked up 80lbs of Zaycon Foods Chicken yesterday. If you aren’t familiar with Zaycon Foods or are thinking, “What in the world did you do with 80lbs of chicken?”, keep reading. This is all about my Zaycon Foods experience.

About six months ago, I noticed a friend posting about Zaycon Foods Chicken and was curious. She told me their chicken was awesome so I checked it out and found that their prices were pretty awesome, too. Zaycon Foods provides products fresh from the farm to your family table. They have a variety of foods available, but only a limited selection each month, so the next time I saw a chicken even taking place, I ordered. That was just a couple months ago. I’ve been telling you about it since because I was so excited to pick up my first order. Well, my pick up day was yesterday!

It was pretty awesome. You have a small window (30 minutes) for your pick up time. The great thing is, you drive up, tell them your name and they load the box(es) for you! They even put down a heavy duty black bag/tarp under the box which was a nice touch.

A friend of mine and I split the 80lbs so picked up the boxes and went back to my house. The chicken comes double breasted and totally fresh so you need to cook it or prep it to freeze. Of our 80 pounds, we cooked about 35lbs (and, yes, we had to taste test it – delicious!). We prepared 22 meals for the freezer (11 for each of us) and still had 20 pounds each to freeze by itself.

We had enough ingredients that it actually went into three pans so we got three meals out of that one.

After 5 hours of shopping, prepping chicken, and putting together meals, we were done! But, I look forward to doing it again – I love having meals in my freezer ready for my family anytime.
