I can always find ground chicken at a local Meijer, but not at Krogers. I've discovered the my food processor is strong enough to grind cut up pieces of chicken. I'm not a fan of red meat and use chicken as a replacement (I can't eat turkey which is by far easier to find ground) so it's important to me that I found an alternative method to grinding chicken. There is also a meat grinder attachment to a Kitchen Aid mixer, which I've tried but don't own. That would be a fantastic investment if you like ground chicken but can't readily find it. For now I'm sterilizing my food processor everytime I put chicken in it.
while i don't have krogers in my area [publix around here], i'm pretty sure that most places can, you just have to ask. in other words, grab some chicken, head up to the butcher window and go "hey, can you grind this for me, there wasn't any out. thanks." and that should be it. essentially it isn't a big seller, and it's easier to grind it if someone wants it rather than to have too much ground going bad. also, if the people can't do anything for you, your food processor works in a pinch.
I butcher shop can help with this. You want the butcher to grind chicken breasts for you. Most will do so. If you do find this packaged...you want to make sure it is 100% ground chicken breast...otherwise you can be getting ground chicken meat, chicken fat, and chicken skin.
Kroger's headquarters are in Cinci so there are quite a few around. I've checked at least 4 different Kroger stores and they didn't have it. But thanks for the chunks of chicken idea, I'll have to try it out.
I have been trying to find ground chicken to add to pasta sauce for my spaghetti squash for a healthier dinner but can't find it. Is there anyone in the Cinci/NKY area who knows of a store that sells it. I've looked at Walmart, Kroger, Meijer, and Remke. Please pass it along if you know of a place, I'm kind of sick of turkey getting recalled and want a chicken option. Thanks.
