Bone-In and Skin-On. According to marthastewart.com, "Chicken legs and thighs are the unsung heroes of the poultry realm—juicy, meaty, inexpensive, and highly versatile. They're the gateway to worlds of flavor." Here are a number of great recipes, also from marthastewart.com, that can spark some ideas for how to use this ridiculously flavorful cut of chicken.

Lavern and Linda Miller began raising chickens on their own farm in 2013. Located in the ideal farming community of McBain, Double L Farm encompasses the Miller’s Amish values throughout its entire operation.

The Millers are dedicated to free range, barnyard access, and 100% GMO free feeding practices. They raise and process their White Mountain Cross variety without preservatives, hormones or additives. The Millers also practice humane treatment by keeping the chickens’ beaks intact, and giving them more attention and space than a commercial poultry farm ever could.

Just down the road at an MDA-approved small production facility, their chickens are processed and prepared for market with the same attention to these values. The direct results of these practices, plus plenty of fresh air and sunlight: distinctly better flavor and texture than commercially raised chickens.
