The Case for Thanksgiving Chicken

The Case for Thanksgiving Chicken

It’s clear we have been misled by Big Turkey, tricked into thinking we can’t eat a better bird on Thanksgiving. Everyday chicken is a boneless skinless breast or freezer nuggets—the chicken equivalent of a turkey sandwich, which somehow doesn’t disqualify a whole turkey from celebratory main course duty. Turkey, especially boring Thanksgiving turkey, is totally thrill-less, so we psych ourselves up with what surrounds it. Of course, I do not really think that psychoanalyzing turkey makers and eaters is going to convince you to make a Thanksgiving chicken (unless…?). Split the difference by ordering Thanksgiving chicken: You can spring for a local, fully pastured bird you can be proud of for less money per pound than an ethically-produced turkey.
