Chicken Bones and Backs
The hidden gems of the chicken!
You may be thinking, chicken backs?! A hidden gem? No way! But hold on, don't discount this yet. Chicken backs have great nutritional values, and some cooks and chefs even say they can be cooked as a chicken wing. We've got some great tips and tricks to use these backs and how they can benefit you!
Most chicken backs don't contain a large amount of meat, but the chicken backs we have here at 3C, beg to differ. Our chicken backs offer a great amount of meat which make them perfect for cooking. You can coat them in batter and deep fry them, which many chefs refer to as "chicken ribs", or you can smother them in your favorite sauce just as you would a chicken wing and throw them on the grill!
These aren't the only ways to prepare a chicken back. Many people use them for broth, or soups! The marrow in the bones gives the stock great flavor and the meat on the back enhances it that much more. Homemade broth is a great source of nutrients, it is rich in minerals and gelatin, unlike what you get at the store.
We found a great broth recipe that takes very little ingredients and effort!
Chicken backs are great for your canine friends as well! If you are feeding a raw diet, these make a great addition to their kibble. The bones are a great source of natural glucosamine and can easily be eaten raw.
