About this cut
Our pastured Chicken Leg Quarters boast the richest flavor of any cut on the chicken. Raised in small batches by a network of dedicated Amish and Mennonite growers, our poultry are moved to fresh pasture daily where they roam and forage freely -- which means their muscles get some exercise and develop great flavor and texture. They are fed exclusively GMO-free grain, never any hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products. For best results, roast your Chicken Leg Quarters low and slow (300F for 60-90 minutes) or until meat is tender. Also great braised or in stews.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Roast, braise, or grill. Turn the temperature down and increase cooking time to give the muscle fibers time to relax -- we find about 60-75 minutes at 300-325F is ideal.
This product is shipped frozen and will arrive frozen or refrigerated.

They are excellent.
The size and taste are good but for this price it would have been nice to receive the parts clean of feathers. Note from Grow and Behold: Thanks for the review! So glad you enjoyed the chicken, sorry about any feathers. Kosher cold-water plucking can sometimes leave pin-feathers, but we always do our best to remove feathers.
Not enough dry ice in container so container was slightly crushed but contents were OK. Note from Grow & Behold: Thanks for the review! So glad you enjoyed the chicken. Boxes can become damaged due to FedEx handling but that is not related to the amount of refrigerant in the package. Rest assured, we always send with plenty of ice to keep things nice and cold!
I love these leg quarters and put them in every order. I typically slow cook them on low for 5-6 hours with a rub made of olive oil, za'atar, garlic, and lemon zest, putting olives and dried fruit underneath them to soak up the schmaltz. I knocked a star off because sometimes the skin still has feather fringe on, but for the most part these are delicious.
My family can't get enough of these!
Efficient packaging and delivery, with a wholesome and delicious outcome. Thank You.
I liked the way you used to package them better, 2 leg quarters sealed separately
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.
Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
|less than 0.99lb||0.05lb|
|1lb - 2.19lb||0.1lb|
|2.2lb - 2.74lb||0.30lb|
|2.75lb - 10.24lb||0.25lb|
