Using local ingredients is important to everyone on our team. Local ingredients provide a level of freshness and taste not otherwise possible. Here in Denver, we use vegetarian-fed, cage-free, antibiotic-free chicken from Red Bird Farms. To keep the spirit of this recipe, we invite you to source ingredients that are local to your location and support local farmers.
