About this product
Bring back the flavors of your grandmother's kitchen! Render these skins to make clear, flavorful shmaltz for cooking. Then enjoy the gribenes (crispy skin bits left over after the fat has been rendered out) -- you won't be able to resist eating them hot right out of the pan! Add them to your chopped liver for an extra delicious crunch.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Render, then strain and store shmaltz.
Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.

This is just as high quality as Grow and Behold chicken, and it's really convenient to purchase this way. It makes a rich, delicious schmaltz. The skin usually has a fair bit of meat still stuck to it, which obviously raises the weight and requires work to remove, which is why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5.
I love it. I searched high and low for chicken skin and no one local sold it. This was a godsend. I loved the product and when cooked it turned out perfectly. it arrived frozen and in perfect condition.
After starting my keto journey, I was so excited to find this product for purchase. However, I agree with the other reviews that it requires a lot of cleaning if you really want to enjoy them. I cleaned a 1.5 lb pack in an hour and a half. That’s a bit much for me because I still needed to clean another pack to have enough for the family to enjoy keto nachos. I’m not sure if I would purchase again unless they are cleaned better before shipment or if I find an easier way to clean them myself, even though they are extremely tasty. It’s just too much cleaning for a pound and a half of chicken skin.
Request to remove and clean out feathers more. Otherwise love it!
where good if had less feathers would be Great!!!
The product was wonderful, just as I imagined. The product was fully frozen upon arrival. I Will definitely order again very soon! So happy I found your product.
I oven roasted the chicken skins and they were fresh and flavorful. However I was somewhat disappointed to find that approximately 50% of the pieces had an excessive amount of feathers still attached. If that kind of skin was on chicken for sale in a store, no one would buy it. Note from Grow & Behold: Kosher poultry can be feathery due to the cold-water plucking methods used for kashrut. We'll be in touch directly!
Was very excited to be able to buy chicken skins in bulk and be able to make chicken skin crisps in air fryer. Even though skins were nicely portioned they were not cleaned well and there was so much feather casings in the skin and chunks of chicken left on it. Made it unappealing to eat as our keto recipe goes.
I looked for a crispy chicken skin recipe but didn’t find one. Maybe it would be good to have additional recipes on your site. Thank you very much!
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.05 lb|
|~1 lb to ~2.1 lb||+/- 0.1 lb|
|~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb||+/- 0.3 lb|
|~2.9 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb||+/- 0.5 lb|
|over ~20 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
