Thanks to everyone who judged this year’s N.A.S.F.T. (National Association for the Specialty Food Trade) sofi Awards.  We were very happy to receive a Gold sofi Award in the category of “Perishable Foodservice Product” for our Applewood Smoked Chicken.  The awards ceremony took place at the Summer Fancy Food Show in Washington, D.C., earlier this month, and was hosted by Chef José Andres.

Our chicken breast is created in the traditional Nueske’s manner; over glowing embers of genuine Wisconsin Applewood.  This chicken breast comes to you ready-to-eat, no cooking needed. It’s sweetly smoky, juicy, and completely boneless.  We don’t shape or form our chicken breasts, so they have a proper poultry texture and mouth-feel.  They slice nicely for sandwiches and salads and we hear that some people have been using them as a pizza topping, as of late.

Some of our favorite Nueske Family recipes that use this sweet, tender meat are:

Apple, Asparagus, & Smoked Chicken Salad

Smoked Chicken & Lemon Grass Risotto

Thai-Style Smoked Chicken Salad

Smoked Chicken Spread with Walnuts

You can order our award-winning Applewood Smoked Chicken Breasts for home delivery or ask your local specialty grocer or deli counter if they can order them for you.

Thanks again to all who made Nueske’s a sofi Gold winner in 2012!
