Eric invited two of his friends to join us. They did not know about the chicken battle. Here is what the dishes looked like prior to eating.
They were identical in appearance. We ate our chicken first. The meat was sweet, tender, fresh tasting and juicy. Everyone was enjoying it. The second chicken came out and everyone dug in but immediately noticed a difference in the flavor of the chicken. It was still tender and juicy but there was no sweetness. There was a " chicken" flavor that was less appealing and I noticed that right away. Everyone wanted more of chicken number 1. By the end of the dinner, restaurant employees were trying to rationalize the higher cost and figuring out how to get some for themselves.
The organic, non-GMO, pasture raised chicken which was $3 more per lb. was victorious. Delicious. No comparison. Thank you Wooly Pig for your awesome chickens! They are worth every penny.
There was indeed more to our wonderful meal. Eric made us KangKong with Sambal and a curry dish. Many wines and Saki were had and we ended our meal with delicious sesame balls.
A happy Eric enjoying our appreciation for his food.
