I’ve bought an organic chicken and named him Samuel.

I’ve washed him. I’m going to dress him. And then I’m going to cook him. It was simultaneously a fun adventure and incredibly simple to do.

About the Author ()

Lillian's Test Kitchen is an online cooking web series. The recipes in this series are always grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, and cane sugar-free. The recipes are also all (at this point) paleo. Some are vegan. Some are raw. I use the best ingredients I can find (and afford). But Lillian's Test Kitchen is not so much about food as it is about the experience of trying something you have never tried before and then finding the joy, comedy and laughter in those small moments in spite of and also often, because of dietary restrictions. My goal is to inspire others to take their health into their own hands and make their own food.

    It’s been proven in test kitchens that washing chicken is a bad idea, organic or not. You can wipe it down (if you feel the need) with wet paper towels but washing is a no-no. Spreads things around that you don’t want spread.

    Look it up on

    Aside from that, the chicken looked drool-worthy. Is Alex your bf? Nice looking guy.

      Oooh! Thank you for the info! I’ve been washing chickens for years. I will definitely look that up.

      Alex is not my bf. But he is a nice looking guy. I’ll pass on your compliments. 😉

      Thank you for watching and thank you again for the safety tip!
