Zaycon Foods Chicken Review

Disclosure: In exchange for my post and review, I received an order of chicken. No other compensation was received and all opinions expressed are honest and my own.

One of my goals this year was to start cooking at home more often, both to save money and to feed my family healthier meals. With some serious meal planning and my freezer meal cooking, I can happily say I’ve come a long way since last year. But I’ve come to find out that creating healthy meals can be expensive if you don’t plan ahead. Produce and meat are always my largest grocery expense and I look for deals constantly to help stick to our budget. When I heard about a company called Zaycon Foods, I was intrigued. By delivering food straight from the farms, they eliminate the stores and help their customers save money. They offer lots of different products including ground beef, bacon, ham, milk, strawberries, peaches, and honey. Check out their website to see all of their product offerings.

I had the opportunity to try an order of Zaycon's trademark fresh boneless skinless chicken breasts. Each order consists of one 40 lb case of 100% natural chicken with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients. It is fresh, not frozen and comes directly from the processor.

When you order, you choose your pick up location and a 30 minute time frame. You can arrive anytime during that 30 minute time frame. When I pulled up, there was no line. I didn't even have to get out of my car (that's a huge deal for me having 2 young children!) I told the lady my name, opened my trunk and she put the box in for me. She even put down a plastic trash bag so that if the box leaked, it would not get on the carpet (my box didn't leak at all.) That is amazing service!


When I got the box home, I opened it to find four bags of chicken.

First, I separated the breasts and cut off the small bits of fat. I was surprised by how large each chicken breast was!


I filled ziploc bags with one or two pieces each to make it easy to grab out of the freezer.


I was concerned about fitting it all in my small side by side freezer, but luckily it all fit with no problem.

We tried the chicken the following day and I was impressed by how fresh it tasted! It was juicy and tender. I made the mistake of cooking up two pieces and we had tons of leftovers. One portion is plenty for our family.

For the price and quality, I think you can't beat Zaycon Food's chicken. We will definitely be ordering again! To find out more and to find out what foods are available in your area, check out Zaycon's website!
