blood on chicken breast

I have an all natural, organic bone in chicken breast with an excessive amount of blood near the bone. Is this cause for concern?

  1. Not at all. The blood will be expresses out of the bone as you cook it too. I notice this when I grill split chicken breasts on my cast iron grill, or sear bone in thighs in a pan.

    1. My Chinese relatives would think their chicken highly overcooked if there were no blood!!
