Red chicken meat, anyone?

Dr Abe V Rotor

Chicken meat is always known as white meat. But some people like it red.

This is what old folks do it. Hold the head of the chicken with one hand, and the other hand at the base of the neck. With one quick twist detach the skull from the first vertebral bone (atlas). The chicken is instantly killed without struggle. The blood is not drained - unlike in conventional dressing – which explains the red meat of the chicken.

By the way, housewives are generally meticulous when buying meat for fear of picking one that came from a "double dead" animal. Red color of meat is one sign. A good advice is to look for the meat inspection tag. When it comes to chicken the meat is always white.

In case you wish to have it red, pick up a healthy broiler and prepare one at home. ~
