Free Range Chicken
I have recently tried free range chicken from a local farmer and I have to say I was disappointed with the taste. I found the chicken to have a very "turkey" taste to it. I like turkey but when you're expecting chicken its a little disturbing. My girlfriend called it a 'gamey' taste.
Is free range chicken supposed to taste like turkey? Is there supposed to be a difference in taste at all? Did the farmer give me baby turkey's by mistake?!
If you are not used to the taste of free range meat, it will taste gamey. You should try a wild turkey! It's very different! Yes, there will be a difference in taste, which is one of the reasons people like them. They are full of flavor (translate... gamey), as opposed to regular, bland chickens. I highly doubt that the farmer gave you a baby turkey.
