Hot on the heels of asking where to buy fresh chicken in Queens, I now have some more specific questions if you don't mind. I just read a blog where a foodie ran taste tests on almost dozen different brands of chicken. He rated Bell & Evans and Empire brands the top two. Of course Bell & Evans is organic, which I appreciate if in fact it is better for my health. And Empire is Kosher, which means it is " brined" so to speak, making the chicken a bit juicier and tastier.

I'd like to try both brands and decide for myself. I'd also love to hear opinions from those of you familiar with both brands. And, if anyone can offer advice on where to find these brands anywhere in Queens at a reasonable price, I'd very much appreciate it. Thanks!
