One of our favorite things to grill in the summer is fresh chicken. Fresh meat and poultry is something that we’ve become really careful about purchasing. It’s important to me that what my family eats is fresh and natural. Foster Farms, the West Coast’s leading poultry producer, has just introduced Organic and Simply Raisedfresh chicken lines. These new products from Foster Farms are antibiotic free, which is so important to me when feeding my family.
The Organic and Simply Raised chicken from Foster Farms as well as their Fresh and Natural line are all
- American Humane Certified
- 100 percent natural (minimally processed, no additives or preservatives, steroids or hormones)
- Produced with no added sodium
- Locally grown: Fresh & Natural and Simply Raised are locally grown throughout CA, OR, and WA; Organic is locally grown in CA.
Foster Farms Simply Raised means NO antibiotics are EVER administered and 100% vegetarian fed. The chickens for Foster Farms Organic are free range, raised on organic land, and are fed an only 100% organic, vegetarian diet.
Foster Farms Simply Raised is available now at major supermarkets and retailers and Organic is available in West Coast Costcos and select supermarkets. The price for boneless, skinless chicken breasts for Fresh and Natural is $5.99/lb, Simply Raised is $6.49/lb, and Organic is $8.99/lb. These are great prices for a product that you’ll feel good about feeding your family!
We made one of our favorite recipes using the Foster Farms Simply Raised Drumsticks and the whole family loved how great the chicken tasted!
Cilantro Lime Grilled Chicken Drummies

- Fresh Cilantro
- Fresh Limes
- Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
- Lemon Pepper, Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Cumin, and Red Pepper Flakes to taste
Prep the chicken drumsticks as you normally would. If you prefer to remove the skin you may do so but grilling with the skin on does help to keep the meat moist and juicy!
Place the chicken in a large glass dish. Sprinkle the seasonings over the chicken.
Squeeze the juice of several limes (or use bottled lime juice) over the chicken.
Top the chicken with a handful of coarsely chopped cilantro.
Cover and store in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours, flipping the meat halfway through.
Preheat your grill and coat the grill grates with oil to prevent the chicken from sticking. This chicken is best cooked slowly, over a low to medium heat. We like to use charcoal but a gas grill or over wood fire works great too.
When the internal temperature of the chicken has reached 165 degrees, remove it from the grill and serve! This is great served with whole grain brown rice and asparagus that has also been cooked with lime juice and cilantro. It makes a delicious meal that is gluten free, natural, and healthy!
