Zaycon Chicken Event for Spring: $1.79/lb

ZayconLink

Zaycon Foods is coming to Washington this spring and their sale is now live! They are offering 40-lb cases of boneless, skinless chicken breast for $1.79/lb, which works out to $71.60 for the case.

It’s also worth mentioning that this week at Albertsons, you can buy fresh boneless, skinless chicken breast for $1.69/lb which is FANTASTIC. However, you are limited to 6 pounds under that sale. Depending on your needs, the Zaycon sale may also be worth considering.

What is Zaycon Foods

Zaycon Foods is a privately owned company that works to pass on wholesale prices to families. To deliver those low costs, Zaycon Foods sells their food to the consumer in the form of events as opposed to selling in a store. The result is quality food at substantial savings! When they launched, they were PNW-based, but they’ve since successfully expanded into the lower 48 states.

Zaycon Foods is primarily known for its awesome chicken breast sales, but they’ve also had sales for bulk salmon, bacon, ground beef, and even fruit.

One thing you should be mindful of is that Zaycon Foods sells their items in set quantities and they are large. As an example, the chicken breast is sold in 40 lb boxes. So plan on some prep time afterwards! If space and/or money is limited, you can always split with a friend. Each box contains (4) 10 lb bags, so you could easily split them up.

How to Place a Zaycon Order

In order to place an order, you’ll need to create a Zaycon Foods account. From there, you’ll be able to view upcoming events for your area, and make purchases.

Next to each event, you’ll see the time/date along with ordering instructions, like this (image is from a prior sale):

All you’ll need to do is bring your receipt and drive to the designated location on the date/time for your sale. Speaking from experience, it’s a pretty smooth operation. Just make sure to have your trunk or floor space clear and ready. They’ve loaded it up for me in the past – no need to get out of the car.

Isn’t that too much chicken?

It entirely depends on your family and eating habits. I find Zaycon only comes through town once every few months, so conceivably one order could get you through until the next sale. Of course, you can always split an order among friends, too.

One time, I decided to turn all the chicken into meals before popping it into the freezer. Yes, it took a few hours to do, but at the end I had lots of meals already to go and that ultimately saved me time and money in the long run. I was also able to share some of these meals with my sister, who had just had a baby. Why not make a fun day of it and get some friends together and prep meals?

If you’re looking to go that route, might I recommend the cookbook Fix, Freeze, and Feast (Amazon)? It’s full of easy, from-scratch recipes geared for freezer prep. I’ve either personally made or tried nearly all the chicken recipes and there’s nary a bad one in there.

To place an order, head on over to Zaycon Foods.

PS For more information, you may wish to read my review post which shares my own experience with Zaycon and more about the quality of the chicken.

isn’t that a lot of chicken?

Well it depends on your family size and how often you like to eat chicken, I suppose! If you do cook it regularly, 40 pounds isn’t a crazy large amount.

Zaycon Foods: April Chicken & Bacon Sale: now LIVE!

Zaycon Foods is coming to Washington next month and their sale is now live! They are offering 40-lb cases of boneless, skinless chicken breast for $1.89/lb (works out to $75.60) and 30-lb cases of hickory smoked bacon for $2.99/lb (works out to $89.70).

What is Zaycon Foods?

Zaycon Foods is a privately owned company that works to pass on wholesale prices to families. In order to accomplish this, Zaycon Foods sells their food to the consumer in the form of events versus selling in a store. The result is quality food at substantial savings! They started in a few PNW states, but have since expanded to all the lower 48.

While Zaycon Foods is primarily known for its awesome chicken breast sales, they also have events for ground beef, bacon, and even fruit sales in the summer.

One thing you should be mindful of is that Zaycon Foods sells their items in set quantities and they are large. As an example, the chicken breast is sold in 40 lb boxes. So plan on some prep time afterwards! If space and/or money is limited, you can always split with a friend. Each box contains (4) 10 lb bags, so you could easily split them up.

Next to each event, you’ll see the time/date along with ordering instructions, like this:

On the date of the event, bring your receipt and drive to the designated location. I’ve been through this process a few times now and can tell you it’s all very well organized. There are signs, ample workers, and you won’t even have to get out of the car. They’ll load it right up for you!

Isn’t that a lot of chicken?

It really depends.

One thing I’ve done before it to set the day aside and I made chicken cordon bleu, curry chicken, teriyaki chicken, and a few others. Perfect for the freezer and for sharing with my sister who’d just had a baby. I also have friends who just split up a case.

Zaycon Review

I have a couple cookbook resources for you, if you’re interested.

First, Fix, Freeze, and Feast (Amazon). You can nab it for about $10 at Amazon, or you could check your local library.

Second, Angela from Frugal Living NW wrote an e-book last year entitled The Ultimate Guide to Freezer Friendly Meals: Chicken. It’s only $3.99 now and you can download it immediately.

For more information, you may wish to read my review post which shares my own experience with Zaycon and more about the quality of the chicken.

If you’re interested, you might want to jump as this sale actually does sell out pretty quickly.

angela, what on earth do you do with that much chicken?

Believe it or not, 40 lbs of chicken is not that much once you prep it!

One thing I’ve done before it to set the day aside and I made chicken cordon bleu, curry chicken, teriyaki chicken, and a few others. Perfect for the freezer and for sharing with my sister who’d just had a baby. Believe it or not, it didn’t take up too much room in my freezer, either.

Zaycon Review

I have two ideas for recipes, if you’re looking for them too.

First, Fix, Freeze, and Feast. It’s my all-time favorite freezer cookbook (in fact, I JUST pulled it out again tonight for the fabulous meatball recipe!). You can nab it for about $10 at Amazon, or you could check your local library.

Second, Angela from Frugal Living NW wrote an e-book last year entitled The Ultimate Guide to Freezer Friendly Meals: Chicken. It’s only $3.99 now and you can download it immediately.
