Airline chicken breast is a cut comprising of a boneless chicken breast with the drumette attached. This elegant cut has the skin on breast with the first wing joint and tenderloin attached, otherwise boneless. The cut is also known as a frenched breast. Our chicken is a free run product that is grown in the Pacific Northwest. The birds are Air-Chilled. Air-Chilled birds do not have the opportunity to absorb any of the water that the traditional water bath methods employ, which can be as much as 8% of the chicken’s body weight. Because of this you will find that our chicken is a cleaner product and the meat will be much more tender and flavorful than any other.
The airline chicken breast is also known as “statler chicken”, a name which originated from the Boston Hotel Statler, built in 1927 by E.M. Statler. A chicken dish stating it is “Statler” simply means it is a breast of chicken with the drumette still attached. This presentation of the chicken breast is common in Europe.

Not All Chicken is Created Equal
Our chicken is chilled in air throughout processing. Air-Chilled birds do not have the opportunity to absorb any of the water that the traditional water bath methods employ, which can be as much as 8% of the chicken’s body weight. Because of this you will find that our chicken is a cleaner product and the meat will be much more tender and flavorful.
We leave the skin on. The skin acts like parchment paper to hold in moisture, ensuring the delicate meat will be succulent and tender when prepared. Feel free to remove skin after cooking.
When you buy chicken from Porter & York, you’re getting free run poultry that is grown in the Pacific Northwest, fed a 100% vegetarian diet, with no hormones or antibiotics.
Delivered to Your Door Fresh - Never Frozen
Freezing and thawing compromises the flavor and tenderness of meat. So, unlike the other steak delivery guys, we made it our mission to deliver all our beef fresh, so it is never frozen at any point in the process. Your order is cut fresh the day it ships, individually vacuum sealed, and meticulously packed in a double-insulated box with gel packs, keeping your meat at refrigerator temperatures throughout its journey.
