Kosher chicken in Phoenix?
I'll post this query on the Kosher board, as well. We don't keep kosher, but have dinner guests coming who do. They'll eat what I prepare, even though it's not being prepared with separate utensils, etc., as long as the meat itself is kosher. We're located at Tramonto, which is just off I-17 and Carefree Highway. Can anyone let me know where I would find kosher chicken within a 25- to 30-mile radius?
first, almost all supermarkets carry Empire Chicken in the frozen (and sometimes, the fresh) section. As frozen chicken goes, its better than most and Kosher. Here is a list of other establishments that offer Kosher shopping in Phoenix. I pulled these from the Phoenix Jewish Directory at Jewishaz.com. I will say this.. if you need a place to go some night, Goldmans is pretty good.

Imperial Kosher Market on Glendale is owned by Orthodox. I would try it since there is a substantial number of Orthodox who live in the immediate area, so you're bound to find fresh food. There's also a small restaurant at the end of the plaza called Glatt Kosher.
Just curious... why can't you brine? I just started to brine chicken and found it makes much better dishes. Even though the brine has salt, it doesn't make the dish salty.
