The Indian Country Chicken is not a Broiler. It is a Kuroiler. Its physical structure is proportionate and majestic unlike in case of Broiler. Its ample meat is evenly distributed over its chest, legs and other regions. The meat of the Indian Country Chicken is far more firm and mature than that of a Broiler and many discerning consumers opine that it has a “gamey “flavour.
Q2. How is the taste, flavor and texture of Indian Country Chicken meat different from that of the Broiler?
Taste, flavour and texture are primarily consequences of natural and organic ripening products. If the ripening of a product is unduly accelerated by any means, it is invariably at the cost of its natural aroma, taste, flavor and texture. Indian Country Chickens are genetically identical to natural chickens and are grown at a gentle and moderate pace. This enables them to acquire their unique flavor and texture with meat being much firmer, which yields an experience of “Bite.” Broilers on the other hand are bred and produced as economical commercial chickens for the mass markets. They have ample meat which is exceedingly soft and lacks both flavor and bite.

Q8. Why is marination recommended for Indian Country Chickens?
In the “good old days” when the chicken was regarded as connoisseur’s meat, these birds were raised on the range and they were generally more than 6-7 months of age before they attained 1 Kg livebody weight and were suitable to be used as meat. Because of their advanced age, the meat of the chickens hardened even though it was exceedingly flavoursome. Marination was thus a common practice that all cooks deployed to soften the meat, and get the best flavor and bite from the old range grownchickens. Indian Country Chickens are not old but even so their cooking quality and eating experience improves with marination. It softens the meat, releases its natural flavour and enables it to absorb the aroma and taste of the additives. Indian Country Chicken is not recommended for “Dinner in a Minute “type of meals.
