There are lots of great ways to cook eggs and poultry.  These are just a few of our favorites:

Kate’s Quiche

1 refrigerated pie crust

6 eggs (from Clucky Hen Farm- of course!)

1 ½ cups whole milk or goat milk

1 ½ cups shredded cheese of your choice

1 ½ cups chopped broccoli and/or mushrooms

1 clove garlic, minced

¼ cup chopped onion

Pinch salt

Pinch pepper

2 tbsp olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sauté garlic, onions and other vegetables in olive oil until they are mostly cooked.
  3. Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper until smooth
  4. Mix cheese vegetables, cheese and egg batter together.
  5. Press pie crust into deep dish pie pan and pour egg-vegetable mixture into crust.
  6. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Check by inserting a toothpick in the quiche. The toothpick will come out clean when it’s done. Add additional time if necessary.

The Perfect Roasted Chicken

1 whole chicken (from Clucky Hen Farm- of course!)

2 lemons (orange or grapefruit also work great with this recipe!)

1 clove minced garlic

2 tbsp olive oil

Pinch salt

Pinch pepper

Pinch parsley

Optional: onions, small potatoes and baby carrots will taste great when roasted in the same pan as the chicken. If you’re using a crock pot, add them half-way through the cook time.  You can add them from the start in the oven.

  1. Thaw the chicken out, by taking it out of the freezer 24 hours before cooking and placing it in the fridge. Thawing it in a bath of salt water will make it especially tender after cooking.
  2. Rinse the chicken, inside and out and trim any excess skin from around the neck. Place it in a crock pot or in a roasting pan (on a rack).
  3. Squeeze the juice of one lemon over the chicken. Salt the inside of the chicken. Cut the other lemon in half and stuff it inside the chicken.
  4. Tie the legs of the chicken together with kitchen string.
  5. Brush olive oil over the skin of the chicken and shake a generous amount of salt, parsley and pepper on it. Sprinkle the minced garlic over the skin.
  6. Roast the chicken for 1 ½- 2 hours at 350 degrees in the oven or 4 hours (on high) in a crock pot. You can tell the chicken is done when juices run clear when you cut between the leg and thigh.
