When making any easy chicken breast recipe idea, you will have to decide what sort of chicken you are going to buy. These days there are more options than ever before, with a variety of choices from free range chicken, conventional chicken, free-range chicken, and organic chicken. You may feel overwhelmed when you go into the grocery with all the wide variety of food labels there are to choose from. When it comes to the chicken being certified organic, the farms where the chicken is raised must follow a set of strict guidelines and be inspected annually by a third-party certification body to ensure that those standards are met. The standards that they must follow include that the birds be raised organically no later than two days after they hatch. The chicken must be fed certified organic feed for their whole lives. The organic feed fed to the chickens cannot contain any antibiotics or animal by-products, or genetically engineered grains. The chickens that are being raised organically also cannot be grown using any chemical fertilizers or persistent pesticides. The use of any drugs, hormones, or antibiotics to the organic birds is prohibited in certified organic chickens. Chicken being raised as certified organic hickens must have access to the outdoors. Certified organic chicken is more expensive than conventionally raised chicken. Another option when it comes to buying chicken is free range chicken. The free range method of farming is where the chickens for at least some part of their day, can roam freely outdoors, rather than being confined in an enclosure for the entire day. Free range is a term that is used to refer to meat, eggs or dairy farming practices.
