Our chickens will be delivered to your door within days of processing (usually 3 days). Your chicken will arrive still cold (with an internal temperature between 40° to 50° F) and ready to cook; or store in your refrigerator or freezer. Unlike chicken's in your supermarket or other poultry companies online, Jidori® Chickens are not held in our freezer waiting for customers to order; we process chickens daily and ship out immediately, thus guaranteeing the freshest chicken available on the internet. Your family will taste the difference right away. We have different "GRADES". Choose from NON-GMO, ORGANIC, or Pasture-Raised.

2 Piece COMBO BOX (1 Whole Chicken, 1 Boned Chicken)

When you order our 2 Piece Chicken COMBO box, you can have your chicken boned out for free. That means instead of receiving a whole chicken that you will have to cut yourself, we will do it for you. You can get 2 pieces of breast, 2 pieces of wings, 2 pieces tenders, 2 pieces thighs, 2 pieces drumsticks, and one bone carcass per whole chicken with this option. These combinations are available for all our three grades. Choose among NON-GMO, ORGANIC, or Pasture-Raised on the product order page.

4 Piece COMBO BOX (4 Boned Chickens)

This is what you will receive if you choose the 4 Piece Chicken COMBO box and choose to have all 4 chickens Boned Out.

from farm to your home...

Unlike 99% of your chicken suppliers on the internet, Jidori®  Chicken actually works daily with our farmers and processes all our chickens at our own processing facility... EVERYDAY. This is the most direct line of "farm to your table" there is; NO MIDDLEMAN!  Jidori® Chicken also offers different grades and price points to meet everyone's needs. Supermarket and internet sold chickens are often weeks or months old and defrosted and refrozen several times to stay saleable. That is not FRESH! With Jidori® Chicken you are guaranteed a true farm fresh  chicken delivered just days after processing. Elevate your chicken game and order today!

how it all began...

In the early 90's, where our food came from; how our animals were raised or captured was often a mystery and not many people cared to know. However, with the advent of the internet, knowledge about food became more accessible. Consumers became smarter.

I was personally running live "free-range" chickens from the Los Angeles suburb of Lancaster to my small processing plant located near downtown LA. During that time, I built relationships with many sous chefs at the best restaurants in town, and many happened to be Japanese. That is how I came up with "Jidori Chicken®" a Japanese term which loosely translates into "Chicken of the Earth." From here, I was able to take my dilapidated corner poultry butcher into the premier supplier of the freshest poultry to the greatest chefs in Los Angeles.

My unbelievable fortune was also meeting two unbelievably talented chefs, Wolfgang Puck and Nobu Mastuhisa. Although famous in Los Angeles in the early 90s, they had yet to achieve international acclaim. I owe much of my success to their success. All their sous chefs that went on to open their own restaurants always gave me a call to get Jidori Chicken®. Gratitude.
