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.
Kosher chickens have already gone through something akin to a brining process, have a lot of salt. The brining process does indeed, make something saltier. Taking the salt out of a brine would render it not brine, but a cesspool of bacteria (salt is the preservative).
Honestly, Kosher chickens just don't need it.
