When the temperatures dip, our bodies naturally seek out meals that can provide extra warmth and energy. This is where Joe's Fresh Poultry comes in, offering a range of products perfect for creating those beloved winter recipes.

Chicken Soups: A Classic Winter Warmer

Nothing says winter comfort like a steaming bowl of chicken soup. Whether you prefer a classic chicken noodle soup or something a bit more adventurous like a spicy chicken and vegetable stew, the key is using fresh, high-quality chicken. Joe's Fresh Poultry offers the finest cuts of chicken, perfect for creating rich, flavourful broths that form the base of any great soup.

Recipe Idea: Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

  • Ingredients: Joe's Fresh Poultry chicken breasts, carrots, celery, onions, garlic, egg noodles, fresh herbs.

Once the chicken is cooked, shred it and return it to the pot with sliced carrots and egg noodles. Season with salt, pepper, and fresh herbs. Simmer until the noodles are tender.

Succulent Lamb Shanks: A Winter Feast

Lamb shanks are a quintessential winter dish, offering rich, deep flavours that are perfect for cold nights. Slow-cooked to perfection, lamb shanks become incredibly tender, falling off the bone with every bite. Joe's Fresh Poultry provides top-quality lamb shanks that will make your winter feasts truly memorable.
