Anyone know where I can buy the frozen tray chicken that is kosher for Passover in the Minneapolis area?

    Byerly's St. Louis Park on HWY 100 and Excelsior has the most extensive Kosher section in the TCs. Are you talking about he 100% self-contained TV dinner type of dish? Because any un-processed Kosher chicken, whole or parts, will be Kosher for Passover by default.

      That Bylerly's is a must-try place, but so is Fishman's down the street.

        Both are very good - I do prefer fishman's though -

        The SLP Byerly's and Fishman's are both good. Cub on Hwy 7 also has a good selection of KP items (especially the 2 liter bottles of coke- yea!!!!). I have found some overlap, but also a lot of differences between the 3 stores.

          What abou Cecil's Deli in St. Paul? It's just a little bit past the Ford Bridge into St. Paul. I've honestly never been there but it was the first place that came to mind for kosher.

            I believe cecil's is not kosher but kosher style -

              Cecil's served food is not glatt kosher, but they do have a frozen case with hechshered foods. I have not been there for a few months, so I do not know what KP foods they currently have.

                Yep, I had a Reuben there - corned beef and swiss cheese (definitely not kosher). Really good sandwich, though, I'd go back in a heartbeat.

                What about the Little Tel Aviv place? I haven't been there, but I know it's a kosher restaurant. They might be willing to put together a tray that you can freeze...? They have a page with "Meat catering" that you could look into.

                  Little Tel Aviv is a veg-dairy glatt kosher restaurant. Any meat catering they do I would bet is done by stuff gotten at Fishman's. For chicken, don't go to LTA. THere are much better options.

                  There is also a group (Aish HaTorah) doing some Passover catering as a fundraiser. Here's a link to their site:

              I'm talking about the big trays of frozen chicken (breaded with matsa) that serve like a dozen people each. Anyone know if Fishman's has that?
              My friend's mom use to get it from some wholesale guy, but he's not in the business anymore.
