I had a high school friend who's father owned a grocery store. The chicken came in big waxed boxes, and it was her job to unpack them and bag them up to be weighed and priced. She hated the job...said they smelled awful!
My dad grew up on the farm, and he had to help singe and pluck the chickens. He hated the smell, and if he happened to come in my house when I was boiling a chicken, he turned around and went right back out the door.
Try sprinkling lemon juice on the chicken...makes it smell better, and freshens the tastre. Actually, a little lemon juice brings out the flavor in lots of foods!
We get by with a little help from our friends
