Did you know that Bashas’ sells Red Bird ground chicken?

That's right! Bashas' carries Red Bird fresh ground chicken breast. It only has 7 percent fat and is a healthier alternative to ground beef. I use it instead of ground beef for all of my recipes. It is great as a burger; just use your normal seasonings. I use it for tacos and to make Sloppy Joes. I prefer it much more than ground turkey because it has a milder flavor.

I watch a lot of shows on the Food Network and many of the chefs use recipes that call for ground chicken, including Rachael Ray and Guy Fiery. I couldn't find a store in Kingman that sold fresh ground chicken until I saw an advertisement in the Bashas' weekly ads. Ever since that day, I have been a happy camper! Unfortunately, we seemed to be the only consumers buying this product, and Jason, the meat department manager, told me that he had to throw some of the meat away because it had passed the expiration date.

I just wanted to let everyone who is interested in preparing healthier meals know that this terrific product is available at Bashas'. Occasionally, the price is reduced, so you need to check the weekly store ads.
