Best-Chicken-Salad-Recipe-on-Plate

I only use organic chicken from ButcherBox these days. The reason is because their meats and poultry don’t have antibiotics, growth hormones or revolting additives in the grains that the animals are fed that compromises nutrition, besides turning my stomach after the research I’ve done. You may feel that those qualities don’t matter, but organic chicken also is proven to pose less risk to opening you and your family up to Salmonella since it is antibiotic free. Read the proof for yourself and then you too may want to make a switch from regular chicken to my favorite healthy meat subscription.
