When we sit down to a plate of fried chicken, we usually don’t have health on our minds. This quintessential comfort food is a go-to for anyone looking for some messy deep-fried goodness, waistline be damned! Farmer Chicken is a one-of-a-kind operation that looks to change the way we perceive fried chicken, with a well-rounded approach to how the chicken is sourced, prepared and served.
Farmer Chicken – the brainchild of the minds behind Harajuku Gyoza, Fritzenberger and Nitrogenie – is a delivery-only venture that chooses to cook its chicken in extra virgin olive oil from Cobram Estate. For those wondering why this is notable, most fast-food joints cook using canola oil but frying with Cobram Estate’s extra virgin olive oil reportedly reduces trans fats by 50 percent while increasing healthy fatty acid composition and antioxidant levels. All chicken is free-range (sourced from Lilydale) and is served across a menu that includes nutritious salads, burgers, chicken wings, family packs and more.
To get your hands on a helping of healthier fried chicken, search for Farmer Chicken on UberEATS Monday to Friday from 5:00–10:00 pm and weekends from midday to 10:00 pm. Head to the Stumble Guide for more information.
