Not only does sous vide preparation allow a home cook to get the same texture, flavor and appearance of a restaurant-quality chicken breast, but it’s quick to finish, without drying out.
ATLANTA (PRWEB) November 01, 2018
Certified to Global Animal Partnership (GAP) Step 2 Rated standards, all NAKED TRUTH® chickens are raised on family farms with more light intensity, room to roam, and enrichments to support natural behavior, inside chicken houses. The new product hits store freezer cases this month.
“We are beyond excited to offer a product that we’re sure consumers will absolutely love,” said Megan Ernst, NAKED TRUTH® Premium Chicken senior brand manager. Not only does sous vide preparation allow a home cook to get the same texture, flavor and appearance of a restaurant-quality chicken breast, but it’s quick to finish, without drying out. Juiciness is a hallmark of the sous vide cooking method. This leaves more time for preparing side dishes, sauces or welcoming guests, as they arrive, which everyone can use more time to do,” Ernst added.
According to Ernst, sous vide is a cooking technique that uses heated water versus heating elements to get near-perfect results, each-and-every time. With traditional cooking techniques, cooks have a narrow window of time to pull the product to prevent under- or over-cooking. Instead, with the sous vide method of cooking, water is heated to exactly the temperature needed to cook the product. Used by restaurant chefs for decades, the technique is “now growing in popularity with home chefs, and we’ve basically removed all the guesswork for them,” Ernst said.
The product’s 5-ounce breast fillets are fully cooked and then flash-frozen to lock-in moisture and flavor. Each chicken breast is wrapped in its own package—for a no-touch prep experience—and placed in an outer, resealable, bag, which contains six wrapped breasts. This means that cooks have complete flexibility over exactly what gets used and ‘when.’ The all-natural Flame Grilled Chicken Breasts may be served warm or chilled and contain no artificial ingredients, nitrates, nitrites, preservatives or gluten.
Most importantly, behind the product, itself, Ernst shared that consumers are really going to like the certified responsibility and care provided. Chicken raised under GAP Step 2 requirements are fed a vegetable and grain diet, meaning no animal by-products, and are never, ever given antibiotics. “We just really feel that the value of this product is unprecedented, with the preparation and humane care practices behind it. It’s where convenience meets conscience,” Ernst concluded.
In stores November of 2018, suggested retail price is $12.98 and will be found in stores’ freezer sections.
