99 Ranch has silky chickens (the ones with the blue-black skin and flesh) on sale this week for $8.00 a bird. I've never cooked a silky before, though I am aware it is eaten in Asian countries a lot more than in North America, until lately when our Asian population has grown. I can ONLY find on-line recipes for (surprise surprise) Asian recipes using it.
My interest in whether it's a good bird for roasting and/or frying is because I'm so sick of buying Tyson, Perdue, etc agribusiness chickens that I can't see straight but I'm also too damned cheap to pay $16 to $24 for a free range organic chicken. Seems to me any silky chickens getting to market have probably never even heard of Tyson and that ilk!
So.... Has anyone ever roasted one of these chickadees? Fried it? How did it turn out? Thanks!
