When making chicken breast recipes, you will find different options for the chicken you buy. One of the options is to purchase free-range or organic chickens if you can. Free range and organic chicken are more expensive than conventional but a good thing to support. Free range is the method of farming where the chickens for at least some of their day, can roam freely outdoors, rather than being confined in an enclosure for the entire day. On many farms where chickens are raised, the outdoors area where the chickens range is fenced, which technically makes it an enclosure, but the free range systems usually offer the opportunity for the birds to get natural light and an outdoor existance that would otherwise be prevented if they were living in indoor cages. Free range is a term that may apply to meat, eggs or dairy farming. The term free range can also be used to describe the type of husbandry methods the farmer used, and to describe the final product that is sold. The United States Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service requires that any chickens that are raised for their meat have access to the outdoors to receive their certification of free-range. There is no requirement for what sort of of outdoor environment they must have, only that they must be allowed outside. You can feel good about eating free range chickens knowing that are not confined their entire existence crowded into small cages.

Sun dried tomatoes are a tasty addition to all sorts of pasta recipes. This process was originally used to help preserve the fruit, through being salted and dried. The salting and evaporating of the moisture out of tomatoes helps to significantly delay the process of decomposition. By drying ripe tomatoes, they can be later enjoyed and provide valuable nutrition during the winter when it is difficult or impossible to grow fresh produce. The true origin of sun-dried tomatoes is not clear, but it is known that the Aztecs began salting and sun-drying their tomatoes to preserve their freshness around the year 700 AD. Italians used to dry their tomatoes on their ceramic roof-tops in the hot summer sun.Thank you to Becky from "The Cookie Rookie" recipe site for sharing this easy chicken breast recipes idea for one pot chicken alfredo skillet.
