September is Chicken Month!

Yes, there is such a thing as Chicken Month and September is the month for celebrating chickens! So, let's share some fun facts about chickens from with friends and family during National Chicken Month, such as:

  • A study made in 2003 estimated more than 25 billion chickens exist the world over. This makes the chicken the most populous bird on earth.
  • The color of a hen’s eggs is determined by their breed–and most can be predicted by their earlobes. Chickens with brown lobes lay brown eggs and those with white lobes will lay white eggs. One certain type of chicken (Ameraucana) produces blue eggs.
  • Chickens are believed to have originated in jungles of Southeast Asia, where they lived in the wild and probably laid only 10-15 eggs per year due to a lack of access to food and water.
  • It is believed that there are more than 500 different breeds of chickens throughout the world!
Certainly we are able to celebrate Chicken Month by enjoying chicken recipes - this is one of my favorites . . .
  • One cooked chicken - I like to get rotisserie chickens as they are a great buy!
  • One can of tomato paste
  • One cup of water
  • Spices - I use salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, sage, paprika - but spice as you like
  • Sautéed onion
Take chicken off the bone, combine ingredients and heat. Pour over chicken and serve with mini
