The chicken we are familiar with is Gallus domesticus or the domestic chicken. We use this versatile meat in many of our chicken and rice recipes. Chicken is a healthy meal option for our everyday dinners.
The heritage of the chicken stems from four species of jungle fowl from southeast Asia.
The species of fowl, likely to be the ancestor of our domestic chicken is the red jungle fowl or Gallus bankiva. This is the most common species of wildfowl in the world today.
I don’t have very fond memories of chicken, as a child. Not because I disliked eating chicken, I love eating chicken. Where I used to live as a child, had a chicken farm not very far away. I only remember big wooden sheds full of chickens, noise and smell. It was also quite common to see rats running around the area,
On the plus side, we also had a chicken processing factory in the next village. When I was working age, I would often use the factory canteen for really good, really cheap chicken lunches.

Our daughter works at the local take-away shop so, we can take advantage of bulk buying when the proprietor goes to the cash and carry. We can buy a whole tray of chicken breast for less than half the price it would be at the supermarket.
From my point of view, it is permissible on the Wahls Protocol and other AIP diets.
