The Instacart guide to ground chicken products

About ground chicken

Ground chicken is also called minced chicken or chicken mince. It tastes similar to ground turkey, and it's an excellent alternative to ground beef. You can choose ground chicken breasts, thighs, or a combination of light and dark meat. Some ground chicken contains skin as well. Leaner white meat is usually more costly than more fatty, flavorful dark meat. However, even dark meat contains fewer calories than the same amount of ground beef. Like drumsticks and thighs, dark meat also has more blood vessels and fatty skin than white meat like chicken breasts. 

You can use ground chicken to make burgers, lasagna, chili, and more. Ground chicken with more fat and dark meat is usually a darker pink color than chicken made from white meat, and you can find the ratio of lean meat to fat on the package.

The meat should be odorless, and there should be no excess blood or other liquid in the bottom of the package. Avoid discolored ground chicken, and look for meat with a sell-by date that's as far in the future as possible. You can order ground chicken fresh or frozen through Instacart, and an experienced shopper can take it straight to your door!
