This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Foster Farms Simply Raised Chicken.
Fall is nearly here – which means it’s time to start cooking comfort food. I love all of the simple salads and snack recipes in the summertime, but I also enjoy the warm casseroles and one-pan dinner meals in the fall. I love using ingredients from our little garden that we grow every year. Instead of extra rich and heavy dinners, I like how today’s comfort food – the new comfort food – can be as simple as taking local and fresh, seasonal food and combining them into something tasty. You still get the comfort of a hearty, delicious meal, combined with the satisfaction of quality, fresh ingredients.
I cook with a lot of chicken. It’s easy, versatile, and my family enjoys it. I normally purchase Foster Farms products because their Simply Raised chicken has no antibiotics ever – and no added hormones or steroids. It’s a premium ingredient that I enjoy cooking with. Foster Farms has been locally grown in the West Coast for many years, and is delivered from fresh local ranches in 48 hours or less!
