Often made with duck legs, confit (pronounced kuhn-fee) is a specialty from the heart of Gascony, and a traditional method of preserving meat before refrigeration.
Now we’ve applied the classic process – slow cooking in duck fat with aromatics - to whole chicken legs (thigh and drum). The result is this flavorful and tender chicken leg confit.
Our chicken leg confit makes a great addition to your favorite dishes. Easy to work with because it's fully cooked, chicken confit needs very little preparation; just heat up the grill, crank up the broiler, or place in a hot pan to get the skin crispy.
Cooking & Serving
Chicken leg confit makes a great addition to your favorite dishes. Because it is fully cooked, all you need to do is heat it on the grill, under the broiler, or in a skillet until the skin is crisped to your liking, or until it is heated throughout.
Either shred the tender chicken meat, or serve the whole leg for a lovely presentation. When deboned and shredded, the meat can be rolled in tortillas for burritos, packed into pre-cooked mini-pastry cups, tossed with salads or pasta dishes (try using it as a ravioli filling), and stirred into chili, soup or stew.
For an easy meal, we like it simply broiled until the skin gets crispy, and then shredded and served on a salad.
