Crest chicken recipe promotion profile for the week is retired chef Ravin Deo.
Mr Deo prefers cooking with Crest chicken products because of the impeccable flavour it gives every dish he prepares.
Mr Deo says professionally and at home he uses Crest chicken products, because it gives his dish a savourness that blends well with his cooking ingredients.
As a chef at various resorts and restaurants at Pacific Harbour for many years, Mr Deo has learned the importance of picking good quality meat and he always trusts Crest chicken products to see him through.
"When you use Crest chicken products like the wings, you get the perfect crispy look when you fry it and it doesn't take in a lot of oil when cooking it, giving your dish a dry, savoury and crispy look," he said. It doesn't take long to use or prepare Crest chicken products for any dish, it's clean and the meat quality is just right for any meal.
"I think Crest chicken products are healthy to use and it's good to include it in meals especially with a lot of local grown vegetables." His favourite recipe is a simple chicken chopsuey dish because it's healthy with a lot of fresh vegetables. "When I go grocery shopping my list includes one or two whole chickens, wings, thighs, drumsticks and chicken breasts," he said. Even though he's retired, he loves to cook chicken dishes that include Crest chicken products.
