Cooked dish made with Pilgrim's Whole Chicken

Whole Chicken

Eat Creatively and Treat Your Taste Buds

It's hard to go wrong with Pilgrim's whole birds and your imagination. In fact, there's almost no limit to the variety of exotic and delightful marinades that will make our chicken a mouth-watering party in your mouth.

A whole chicken is like a blank canvas. Its only limits are how imaginative and creative you want to be. A whole chicken can be combined with any taste that suits your palette or craving and a good marinade, which can be subtle or flamboyant, makes chicken taste like a flavor-explosion in your mouth. Some common marinade ingredients include olive oil, soy sauce, garlic, lemon or lime juice, chili powder, curry, mustard, barbecue sauce, honey, or almost anything else in your spice cabinet, pantry or refrigerator.

For best results, pour the marinade over the whole chicken and chill overnight. The next day, the whole chicken will have absorbed the nuances of every spice and juice in the marinade. With a little cooking you'll have a crowd-pleasing meal in no time.
