We are having our old RIR roos butchered today. They are old but pretty heavy and large. I am asking y'all for some good ways to cook em up so they are not tough. I have heard that they will be tough since they are older. We are putting them in the freezer for a little while first as I have already planned the meals for the week. The Amish laday - where my husband is taking the roos to be butchered - told him to soak (and thaw since it will be frozen) the chicken in salt water before cooking. Basically, I have never dealt with this kind of cooking before as all the chicken I cook comes from the store! And I do want to have an idea of what I can make with these chickens since I am aware that they will be tough. So please send me some ideas! (I don't have a pressure cooker, so recipe ideas without one is appreciated!) Thanks!
