CONSUMERS CHOSE CHICKEN OVER OTHER PROTEINS DURING COVID-19

Chicken was the primary protein used in American home cooking this year, according to the findings of a recent survey from the National Chicken Council (NCC).

“Chicken has been popular during COVID-19 because it’s easy to prepare and great for meal prepping. A staple of many diverse meals, it is no question that chicken is a versatile protein,” said Council spokesman Tom Super.

“In addition, when the economy takes a downturn as we saw in the spring and early summer, chicken is typically the go-to meat for an affordable protein option.“

The study surveyed 999 Americans who eat chicken about chicken consumption trends.
